Through dealing with Ms Burzio, it became clear that she is an exceptional Counsel; I found that she has a profound legal knowledge and she was able to apply this knowledge to the all the cases she was instructed on successfully to maximise my client’s damages without fail. Ms Burzio is also a great communicator, she always reviews our instructions in good time prior the hearing providing advice and seeking clarification if need be and her communication is always clear and precise. She has always provider outcome within the agreed timescale in a comprehensive attendance note clarifying the arguments submitted and the Courts’ reasoning for decisions.

“Having attended one of our Stage 3 hearings with Christy I was extremely impressed with the amount of work that she had done on the file exceeding what we normally expect of Counsel. As well as having an excellent grasp of the brief Christy was extremely constructive in her advice and had picked up on issues that we had not considered. Christy then went on to settle the claim on very favourable terms and her firm discussions with the Defendant Counsel were in stark contrast to her pleasant manner in dealing with us. I was very impressed all round by her performance and we now seek to instruct Christy as one of our favoured barristers.”
