“After a malicious accusation against my Son, who suffers from anxiety, Rojin represented him at his interview with the police station where she very quickly and skilfully extracted the bare facts of the matter and presented them in a statement, such that there could be no doubt of his innocence. The notice of “no further action” was promptly received within hours. She was able to perceive was Son’s learning difficulties and constructed the interview in a manner which placed him at ease and protected his vulnerable nature from being exploited with difficult and provocative questioning, which undoubtably could have led to self incrimination due to his difficulty with language. This level of skill, understanding and professional care is rare indeed. She is an asset to this firm and she will, without doubt, excel in her profession. I have no hesitation in recommending Rojin for similar cases.”
