"I hope never to encounter a similar experience within my professional life but if I did, or a colleague underwent a similar experience, I would recommend Mr Pollard to represent any doctor in this difficult and challenging situation.”
“Whatever way this case ends, it’s been a pleasure working with your firm and Julie Hesketh. She is always professional, knowledgeable and clearly knows her game well!”
"You were thorough and professional and honest, and because of all that, reassuring.”
“Thank you for the thoroughly professional way in which you mounted my defence at the two GMC hearings”
“At a time when I felt most exposed in my professional career you instilled confidence and provided support that allowed me to carry on with a semblance of normality.”
"It was the warmth, the friendship and supreme understanding allied to your expertise and logic for which I will be so grateful to you and I will carry that with me through my remaining years.”
"Without your dedication, engagement and thorough understand of the case, it would not have been possible to achieve such an exceptional outcome of ‘no action’, following a finding of ‘fitness to practise impairment’ by the GMC.”
"...I must thank you very much for everything you have done. Your skills and professionalism have helped a doctor desperate to get back to his patients, having faced the fear of losing everything altogether.”
"…when I met Mr Rowley I realised there was indeed a light at the end of the tunnel. Indeed, his comment was: “there is not just a light, there is a huge spotlight!” His words were phenomenally reassuring."
“The Ryan Solicitors team were truly fantastic and I could not wish for any better representation.”
“It has been an awful time but with your clear instructions and help it has been made easier. I wanted to express my thanks for support.”
"Mr Luke has been very professional, engaged thorough and helpful during the conduct of my case. He always addressed my queries/concerns promptly, suggested me to address any gaps and issues in my portfolio, and was very supportive and sympathetic during the course of this hearing."
"I hope never to call upon your skills again, but I would do so, if necessary, with the utmost confidence.”
"I really appreciated your wholly professional approach, expert advice and support at the IOP hearing. I have absolutely no doubt that I would not have had this positive outcome without your efforts.”
“I am so grateful to you for your non-judgmental response to my difficulties and for your very expert and knowledgeable approach to the case. I am obviously aware of how fortunate I am to be able to avoid the full process of the GMC and possibly worse."
