“I would ask you to please pass on my appreciation to the barrister, Tom Acworth, who stepped in at short notice.  If you could please … thank him on my behalf (being my first time in court) for the way in which he discussed the case with me, briefed me on the likely process once we were in court, and put me at ease. He was personable, professional and conducted matters astutely in court -Client’s email to instructing solicitors

“I wish to commend Mr Thomas Acworth … on his wholly knowledgeable, competent and professional representation.  Mr Acworth controlled the case from the start and was able to cite several relevant historical cases, demonstrated a thorough knowledge of contract law and was fully conversant with all of the details of our case. As such, the claimant was unable to substantiate of justify their claim and they completely unravelled under Mr Acworth’s questioning.” –Client’s email to instructing solicitors

“He was obviously very well prepared as evidenced by the way he presented the case and dealt with cross examination of witnesses, and the magistrates felt that his advocacy in court was at a level beyond that expected of an advocate of his experience.” - Ms. B – Legal Advisor to Magistrates.
