Geoffrey (Mott) is always approachable - whether it's on a matter upon which I've instructed him or when I just want to get on the phone and pick his brain. He will often go above and beyond to assist me and, most importantly, our clients. Geoffrey is efficient, professional and thorough. I would highly recommend him.

Candice Rochford Avadis & Co Solicitors

I began instructing Geoffrey (Mott) having first encountered him as a formidable and ultimately successful opponent on a complex costs matter. He is approachable, deals with paperwork promptly and thoroughly, and quickly establishes a highly detailed understanding of the intricacies of cases put before him. Tactically astute, and unshakeable on his feet, I would recommend him most highly and would certainly want him fighting my clients’ corner.

Mark Carlisle, Director Deep Blue Costs

Geoffrey (Mott) is an excellent advocate who is genuinely willing to fight in Court. His attention to detail and evidence results in successful outcomes each time. I often receive good feedback from clients who are impressed with Geoffrey’s impressive advocacy skills as well as his ability to build a good rapport with clients.
