A snapshot of client feedback in 2016, includes but is not limited to the following:

Amber Melville-Brown and her team at Withers delivered a top class and professional service, going well beyond the call of duty, they always went that extra mile to ensure I was fully briefed, protected and supported at all times. Combining empathy and concern with a forensic knowledge of the law is a rare gift, Amber has in abundance. Amber's tact and diplomacy helped to negotiate a way forward when it seemed impossible to find a solution, she was also capable of showing iron determination and resolution when necessary. Her sense of honesty and integrity was inspiring. Amber and her team enabled me to maintain my dignity and protect my reputation, without reservation I recommend her most highly.'” - Artist.

I have never forgotten the quality of both service delivery and communication generated by Amber. [The team] were detailed in their legal communications, but also immensely humane in their personal communications. They were strategic, yet attentive to particular issues. I believe, as a firm, they have maintained a unique capacity to understand the implications of destructive allegations on individuals as well as the agency they work for. Consequently, their client care is exemplary; this is important in a culture where human interactions are increasingly becoming secondary to generating profit. Amber inspired confidence in her team and in her clients, she did it with integrity and flare. If I was ever asked for a legal department to recommend, the team led by Amber Melville-Brown at Withers would be my number one choice.'” - Charity Founder.

I am so grateful for the support and time you have offered in this horrid experience!... Could not be more grateful and thankful for the service you provided.'” - Restaurateur.

Many thanks for helping me bat away a very unexpected curve ball. Hopefully, it has been dealt with and all parties can move on as you say. Thanks again to Rupert and yourself for your sound advice.'” - Businessman.

Thank you so much for working so hard on this and for giving the best advice. I hope I never have to go through this again but I'm glad that when it happened I had you on my team…. It's been a great experience working with you.” - Philanthropist.
