    Andrew Jackson, Head of Collections & Recoveries, Funding Circle

  • “I was referred to DTM Legal, specifically Kate Roberts by a trusted partner. From the outset they spoke in language I understood, were response and easy to deal with. The matter I engaged with them was a very sensitive issue, that could have had a massive impact to my business, and therefore was a very stressful time for me. It was dealt with in an efficient, excellent manner, at times I was available, when I am often unavailable during working hours. They attended court on my behalf and received the successful outcome I had hoped. This was all dealt with by Kate and her team and at a very cost effective price. I would not hesitate in recommending Kate and her team to business’ needing legal assistance.”

    Andrea Jones, Managing Director, Jomu
