CLIENT: Eliot Higgins / Bellingcat
COMPANY/FIRM: McCue Jury & Partners
TESTIMONIAL: The team at McCue Jury and Partners guided myself and my colleagues through a difficult legal experience with a high level of professionalism and expertise that helped end the case rapidly, and in a very satisfactory manner. Their efforts are greatly appreciated by myself and my entire organisation.

CLIENT: Anonymous
COMPANY/FIRM: McCue Jury & Partners
TESTIMONIAL: I cannot commend the legal firm of McCue, Jury & team highly enough. No doubt that they identify their legal input, as: ‘ordinary work’ for them, in doggedly representing me through a complex legacy legal process, it is my opinion that it was: ‘ordinary work, extraordinarily well done’, which exemplified their extremely high standards of the legal work they undertake in support of all of their clients, not just my Case.

CLIENT: Mark Tipper
TESTIMONIAL: How do you sum up or put together a testimonial about the finest law firm in the UK.

It’s 7 1/2 years since I met Matt Jury and his wonderful team, not once have they ever failed in their fight for justice. This shows the dignity of the company when Matt attends the 40th Anniversary of the Hyde Park Bombing and still showing support to these families. He gained us justice in the high court and he is still fighting our corner with other injustices that are still on going.

This law firm is without doubt a credit to the British Justice System.

In my personal opinion I would advise anyone who has lost loved ones to a terrorist atrocity to seek guidance from Matt and his great colleagues.

CLIENT: John Murray


TESTIMONIAL: I have been a client for many years, and I am very glad I chose this firm. I have always found Matthew, Emma, Alex, and the team on hand at any time, and I have always been regularly updated with the progress of my case. The case itself has been protracted and complicated, but this has never been an issue.

The legal advice I have been given is always accurate and correct, and any instructions I have given are always acted upon quickly. I am certainly glad I retained McCue Jury and Partners to deal with my case.

CLIENT: Mark Tipper


TESTIMONIAL: This is just a small correspondence to thank everyone at McCue, Jury & Partners for all of the work, past and present, that you have done for the Hyde Park families. I could not have wished for a finer legal team to have represented us through our darkest times in this case, from our first meeting to our eventual trial at the high court.

The families would like to pay gratitude for all of the time and hard work that went into our civil trial and the outcome that we so much appreciated.

CLIENT: Ali Hamza


TESTIMONIAL: The team has been enthusiastically forthcoming to support us as clients when our cases were challenging and revealed jurisdictions gaps, with very helpful and resourceful international networking to bridge gaps, also very creative and flexible regarding financial needs enabling us a sense of accommodation rarely found elsewhere. The team is very aligned revealing only more encouraging unfoldings and surprises, always listened to feedback including empathetically and very sensibly attending to our thoughts and feelings, making very decent efforts to accommodate our needs whenever possible.

CLIENT: Reg Keys


TESTIMONIAL: About McCue Jury & Partners, I would like to say that they (through the firm) have acted for and represented families of the ‘fallen’ in Iraq with regards to the Chilcot Inquiry with the utmost professionalism and sensitivity. Their determination and support to secure an early publication of the report have been greatly appreciated by the families concerned.
