Tom exceeded expectations and managed an even better outcome than we hoped for. An outcome that my previous lawyer and barrister said was not even slightly possible. If ever I needed legal representation again, I would be straight on the phone to Tom Gardiner.

A few years ago I went to Fisher Dore in need of some representation, I was lucky enough to get Tom Gardiner! Tom was able to secure great results for me on a number charges on a number of different occasions. I would highly recommend Tom Gardiner & Fisher Dore.
