5 Stars PhD Student Awarded MPhil.  Appealed and now reworking thesis for Resubmission for Award of PhD - Testimonial - October 2015

 

It is with great pleasure that i write this testimonial in support of Rosanna and her team.  I found myself in a very difficult situation with my higher education institution and had no previous experience in dealing with such a rare problem.  My wife sought out Rosanna and her team who very swiftly demonstrated that they could help.  The legalistic jargon of the rules and regulations and deadlines in which I had to appeal were unfamiliar to me and added significant pressure which was handled by Rosanna entirely.

New Testimonial for Employment Law - September 2015

 

5 Stars Settlement Agreement  and Negitations

 

I approached RT Coopers because I was faced with a very stressful situation at work. The employment lawyer's genuine kindness and honesty are second to none and I felt being taken care of from the very start. The help that the firm provided me with was nothing less than outstanding. Their experience and the confidence of the employment lawyer were very welcome when I felt down and vulnerable. The result was that I felt more confident during the process and I was given a much better deal with my settlement agreement. More

 
 
 

 


New Testimonial for Education Law - August 2015

5 Stars Final Year Student. Withdrawn from course. Back at medical school after winning appeal

 

'I came to RT Coopers in my hour of need as my last ditch effort to salvage my career as a final year medical student. I was hesitant at first but I could feel the warmth and care Rosanna had for me and my plight through our first "consultation" on Skype. My overall feeling about our firm is that RT Coopers is a team of very competent lawyers led by an outstanding lawyer who is willing to fight for the rights of others.  Rosanna is an artist and expert at dealing with people and delicate issues surrounding the matter presented to her. She worked day and night (even weekends) to make sure my tight deadline was met. The work ethic and dedication shown to me, as though I was the only client at the time, is above and beyond what I could have expected and certainly exceeds the time I was levied for. Rosanna spent hours on the phone with me to ensure I was coping with the stress and believed in myself. To me she has been an absolute rock through the tough time. In fact Rosanna still checks on me ever so often.

 

Through working with Rosanna certain aspects on my life which had been having a negative effect on me were highlighted which provided a new direction and dimension to my case. Rosanna's approach is one of firmness intertwined with a soft approach getting one to accept responsibility for one's shortfalls as well as not placing any unnecessary blame on the other party. I was at a loss when I first came into contact with Rosanna as to why certain things had happened the way they had for so long. After meeting with Rosanna I have become aware of so much about myself and conflict resolution. That is the nature of the holistic approach to the services provided by RT Coopers. It was an absolute pleasure to find that regardless of what time of day it was one always got a reply to text messages, emails and calls.

 Through my contact with the firm I learnt the importance of debriefing after every event.  Not only does one learn from any mistakes made but it reinforces positive behaviours. Rosanna debriefed me on various examinations and periods of my life which highlighted the areas that needed extra attention to overcome my difficulties. Words cannot describe how much I appreciate what Rosanna (and her team) have done for me. She has given me the light back into my life. I know she'll remain a member of my family forever. Should I ever need her again or come across anyone who needs legal assistance, I would not hesitate, even for a second, to call upon her. I know she will help. If you are looking for a firm to help you in your hour of desperation choose RT Coopers. Not only will they win your case for you, but they will support you throughout the whole ordeal. I rate RT Coopers a 5 (if I could give a 10 I would).' N.B More Education Law Testimonials

 

 
New Testimonial for Product Regulatory Law - August 2015
 
5 Stars Ultinate Cosmetics Ltd 
 

'As the owner of a start-up company importing cosmetic products into the EU, the regulatory process appeared quite daunting for someone with no experience in these matters, and who just simply wanted to sell their products. RT Coopers have guided us step by step through the maze of the EU Cosmetics Regulations. In fact by discovering some differences in USA and EU Regulations, RT Coopers saved us from something which would have proven very costly. Its certainly money well spent.Dr Rob Davies, Director More Testimonials regarding Regulatory Law Advice

'RT Cooper is a reliable law firm. I am an international postgraduate student from China who studied in the UK. Unfortunately I was undergoing a tough academic appeal. After the initial attempts by myself, I finally turned to RT Cooper for professional help. Before I decided to choose RT Cooper, I consulted several firms, but RT Cooper made me feel most comfortable. I had my first consultation with Rosanna Cooper who made me feel she was really relating herself with my experience and circumstances. The compassion she showed me influenced my final choice. She was really willing to help me and spend her time on the case. She is very sharp. She knows what the key arguments are which can help us students to get better chances in our appeals. ...'  XLL. For More Testimonials about the work of our Education Lawyers

5 Stars PhD Student, OIA Complaint 

 

 

RT Coopers  Solicitors have brilliantly and tirelessly represented me in a medical/disability discrimination complaint that was filed with the University and OIA.  After a year of getting nowhere on my own against an uncompassionate School and Faculty, I was fortunate to find this legal team to represent me.  Their compassion and understanding of my situation was overwhelming.  For the first time, I felt like someone listened and understood.  Their knowledge of University rules and regulations has allowed them to move a complaint forward that appeared to have been dismissed by the highest levels of the University.  Rosanna was always willing to speak to me when a decision was made that she feared I would find distressing and explain the true ramifications of the situation.  This would put my mind at rest and focus me on the next step in the process.  More Testimonials on Education Law
