“Thank you for the thoroughly professional way in which you mounted my defence at the two GMC hearings”
"Many thanks Michael for the excellent support I received from yourself and the firm."
“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.”
"...Mr Ryan’s advice still echoes in my mind as it was so true and appropriate (if you hire a dog don’t bark yourself). I wish someone had advised me before me landing in trouble. And I assure you Ryan Solicitors don’t bark. They protect and defend you.”
"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.”
"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."
"Thank you for your advice and assistance with this from when I was first referred to the GMC to now. I'd be grateful if you could also pass on my thanks to Julie Hesketh for her excellent and reassuring support."
"Many thanks for representing me so well. I am delighted with the outcome & needless to say, an immense relief."
“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.”
"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.”
"...Thank you for your expert help and support over the last 20 months or so, leading to the successful conclusion of both the police and GMC cases. Thank you in particular for your calm reassurance at the police station, when we first met."
"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.”
"Please convey my thanks and gratitude to all at Ryan for your support and confidence in me."
“I would like to take the opportunity to thank you very much for your advice, support and professionalism over the past few months. It was an extremely stressful time, on top of my other stressors, but you lessened this considerably"
“We were delighted and slightly overwhelmed with the speed with which you took on the whole case and the veracity with which you defended me. I am in your debt.”
"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 hope never to call upon your skills again, but I would do so, if necessary, with the utmost confidence.”
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you personally for your help, support and advise during my GMC investigation and decision. You were able to guide me through a very difficult process and for this I am extremely grateful.
"I am extremely grateful to you for your preparation, guidance & support. You were excellent."
“The Ryan Solicitors team were truly fantastic and I could not wish for any better representation.”
"You were thorough and professional and honest, and because of all that, reassuring.”
“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!”
"Thank you for all the work you have put in and above all thank you for the support and advice during a most difficult time for me. Your calm and supportive attitude was the main factor in getting me through…you are a credit to your profession!”
"...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.”
“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."
"…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."
"I am very grateful for all your support over this difficult time. The good outcome would not have been possible without your hard work."
