Adrian Challinor
I have known David for a number of years and have taken his advise and assistance on a number of occasions. David is a unique person. He very quickly understands the employment issues andaddresses them in a very friendly manner. His approach to me was to help me understand the employment issues and legal aspects in a manner that I could understand. He talks in English, and leaves the hybrid legal/HR jargon behind. His insights are clear and concise. Always to the point and helpful. His advise practical and useful. He was extremely quick to respond to my initial outreach and very accomodating about the time when we met to discuss the issues. He took a strategic view on my employment issues, focusing more on the long term aspects rather than short term issues. He is, and will continue to be, the person I reach out to for all employment issues. I have recommended his services to a number of my friends and colleagues. I would not hesitate to do this in future.
