Samira Cakali Named as a UK Top Rated Solicitor

Samira Cakali is pleased to announce that she has recently been named as a UK Top Rated Solicitor. She has received this commendation thanks to the outstanding reviews written by her clients on VouchedFor.co.uk, the review website for professionals. 

Aside from being a ringing endorsement that she is among the most respected in the legal profession, Samira was featured in a guide to the UK’s Top Rated Professionals which was distributed in The Sunday Telegraph newspaper.   

Samira has expressed her joy at being labelled as the most renowned in her field: “Being selected as a Top Rated solicitor means a lot to me, because I’ve been selected as a result of the support from my clients. This demonstrates that I am achieving what I set out to achieve when I set the firm up– to provide excellent client care.”

Almost everyone will seek the services and advice of a solicitor at some point in their lives, but it can be difficult to know who to trust. Client reviews are a powerful resource when it comes to identifying the right person in the legal profession therefore Samira is delighted that her reviews are now easy to find on VouchedFor.co.uk.
