“Alethea has been extremely helpful and reassuring from the initial phone call and through several email exchanges. Although the matter did not come to court in this instance, I would have no hesitation at all in contacting Rothera Sharp in future in the event that I need further legal assistance.”
"Thank you for your professionalism and your commitment to helping me in my situation. From when I called asking for help, you Alethea explained the situation. You reassured me and put me at ease. Sophie, you have been organised and first class and were able to put a brilliant case in explaining my circumstances. Both of you clearly want to give the best service and I appreciate your input. You took time to understand my situation and offer good advice based on your experience. You said I was in good hands with your colleague Anton, and I totally agree. Once again, thank you, Alethea and Sophie."
‘A big thanks to Olivia Maginn and Alethea Lucas. Their prompt attention and practical guidance was very much appreciated.’
"I was in desperate need of support through my court case for a speeding offence. I was highly anxious and quite terrified of losing my driving licence. I need my licence for many things including my employment. I contacted Rothera Sharp and my worries were immediately taken seriously and met with kindness and compassion, easing my anxieties and putting my mind at rest and reassuring me that I could be supported through this."
