CLIENT: MR NADARAJAN RAMACHANDRAN (RAJ)
FIRM: LAW & LAWYERS SOLICITORS
TESTIMONIAL: Kashmala presented very confidently and expressed her arguments clearly in Court . She also showed excellent interpersonal skills. I would recommend other solicitors to instruct her.
CLIENT: BRIGHT CHIBUNNA IWUMUNE
TESTIMONIAL: I am grateful to Christina Nicholas from Law Lane Chambers (now 3Bolt Court Chambers) for her legal advice and presentation of my case in the immigration court. She persuaded me to disclose all the background facts which had been disregarded and ignored by my previous legal representatives in other legal proceedings. It seemed that these facts were not relevant in my immigration case but she insisted that full disclosure would improve my prospects. She was right, my appeal was allowed. I am grateful to the Chambers for choosing her as my barrister.
CLIENT: MD. CHOWDHURY
TESTIMONIAL: I wish to express my gratitude to barrister Christina Nicholas for her great work in the matter of my asylum. My file was large and complicated in facts and evidence but she quickly organised the file, prepared me for the hearing very thoroughly during two conferences and well presented my case in court. My spirit sunk when the HO was attacking and berating my case but it was quickly restored and elevated when I heard the submission on my behalf, it was so impressive that I had no doubt in success. I shall be recommending her to all my compatriotes who need legal work.
CLIENT: SANDRA KADZOMBE
TESTIMONIAL: I would like to thank Barrister Andrei with handling my court case the way he did, This has been a stressful ordeal and Andrei has kept me well informed in every step of the way. As a Barrister he gave me the scope of the situation bad and good and what it meant for me in legal terms. I was made aware of the consequences and the best advice to counter each action I took. This breaking down of information in legal format enabled me to make an informed decision that subsequently contributed to the withdrawal of this case that had me on the ropes for so long. Another important factor to mention was Andreis desire to accommodate me after hours and weekends as I work throughout the day. He insisted he would go out of his way if need be. He accommodated me and made himself readily available after hours and weekends keeping his word which hence relieved the pressure and stress. I appreciate it and would recommend him to be anyone’s advocate throughout any legal battle or matter. May God bless him.

3 BOLT COURT CHAMBERS DIVERSITY STATEMENT
Diversity in Chambers
In a Shakespearean English-speaking legal arena where gown and wigs are dominated historically, by white, blue eyed and Oxbridge accented male, it can be rather intimidating to break the barriers and stand out and shine even when one has the right armour to compete in the same battlefield against the then deemed “superior”. But the law is changing this, and the new generation of legal professionals are in full provision to ensure that on we move forward. Diversity is borne.
Equality, Diversity and Inclusion are arguably relatively new in the legal profession, but it is an utmost necessity that should have been genetically imprinted within the legal profession as the law represents equality and fairness. It is this adage that 3 Bolt Court Chambers believe in hence the diversity in their chamber is befittingly observed. Since its birth in 2015, 3 Bolt Court Chambers has been committed to surmount the old practice where it can be seen as Jardynce v Jardynce imaginary and to support this statement, a statistic has been put together. The 2018/2019 LLC Pupillage Interview Statistic shows a staggering 71% Female and 29% Male in attendance for the Interviews. Other factors such as age, disability, religion, sexual orientation and ethnicity which showed more numbers which has other ethnic background has also dominated the numbers against white male.
At 3 Bolt Court Chambers we’re passionate about creating an inclusive workplace that promotes and values diversity. Companies that are diverse in age, gender identity, race, sexual orientation, physical or mental ability, ethnicity, and perspective are proven to create a stronger and creative work environment that delivers better results, More importantly, creating an environment where everyone, from any background, can do their best work is the right thing to do.
We have a global, multicultural following. In our recent pupillage application process this was demonstrated amongst ethnicity, sex, age and religion.
