‘Jahad Rahman was polite, approachable, friendly and most importantly he believed me. I felt like I finally had someone with power and influence on my side which was a huge weight off my shoulders. I feel very fortunate indeed that I contacted Rahman Lowe. Jahad discussed every part of my case with me, in depth. His professional skill he shared, he explained points of the law which many fall foul of if they attempt to conduct their own defence; at every point I felt we were a team working together, with the help and support of many others at Rahman Lowe, and it was as a team that we achieved the result that we did. The staff are always kind and courteous and you are always greeted like a friend, being made to feel very welcome and safe.’
