"I have worked with Sammie, Director of Legal Legs Ltd on a large number of crown court cases over the years. She is an exceptionally skilled and industrious case worker. In one on-going highly complex matter involving allegations of historic sexual abuse Sammie took detailed instructions from the client and proofs from a number of witnesses that dealt with incidents dating back some 30 years. All of her work was accurate and thorough. Most recently Sammie was of great assistance to me in the conduct of the defence in a murder trial, from contacting and taking proofs from potential witnesses, the instruction of experts (including a forensic pathologist and a psychiatrist) to attending court and taking a full, accurate and reliable note of the evidence. Sammie has excellent communication skills, she has sound judgement and is able to contribute positively to the preparation of all of her cases."

“Sammie is regularly instructed to represent our clients detained within Police stations across the county. We have been extremely impressed with both Sammie’s professional manner and client care. Sammie evidently uses her knowledge and professionalism to great effect. We regularly receive positive feedback from clients following her engagement and would not hesitate to suggest that other firms utilise her service, were it not that she may not be available to assist us!”

“We have instructed Legal Legs Ltd to undertake casework on many of our serious Crown Court matters. The communication and standard of work is faultless. All aspects of cases from instructing and briefing Counsel, arranging experts and prior authority, liaising with clients and witnesses and taking statements etc. has been undertaken on various cases and the instructing solicitor within our firm is always kept updated. Police station matters are always handled promptly and effectively, fast delivery on attendance notes and maintaining communications with clients and officers in the case can definitely be relied upon. Most recently, we instructed Legal Legs to provide casework services and then as a noting clerk at Crown Court to assist Counsel on a Murder case. Counsel also highly commended the services and work throughout. The services provided by Legal Legs has been a great help to the firm when that extra pair of hands are needed!”

“We have instructed Legal Legs for both Police Station duty matters and also to undertake Crown Court casework during our busier periods. Sammie is a pleasure to work with and we found all work to be carried out to a high standard.This has really helped the workflow and consistency in cases during those busier periods without having to commit to taking on another permanent salaried member of staff unnecessarily. Would highly recommend!”

“I have instructed Sammie and Legal Legs Ltd for a number of my police stations cases and they have provided exceptional representations for my clients. Sammie is first on my list of Legal Reps for cases in the regions.”

“We have instructed Legal Legs to undertake many police station matters on behalf of the firm.
