Mr A. S, Uxbridge Lay Client
I found Mariam to have a superior balance between being professional and personable. She immediately made me comfortable with her presence and exhibited warmth and understanding within the bounds of maintaining professionalism required to the circumstances and her role as a barrister. i am not a legal professional but I noticed that Mariam had expertise that I found to be far superior to other barristers i have engaged in the past. Some of whom were called to the bar many years before Mariam and who have had much greater experience in dealing with cases. I have been represented poorly in my opinion with the very first solicitors i engaged for financial settlement and the barristers they recommended simply did not explain in detail the proceedings, what is expected of me with certain case outcomes. In contrast, Mariam took time to explain to me the entire process, what is expected of me, what I should be doing to help my case and how the process will likely turn out provided I commit to the outcomes of the hearing. I found myself to trust her and her advice and felt she had a very good understanding of the law and legal proceedings. As mentioned above, Mariam is warm, friendly and made me feel at ease immediately on a day that was a culmination of a long, tedious and stressful process. Not having worked on my case before, she made me feel like she understood not only what had transpired to date, but also how stressed and upset I felt about it. She managed my expectations expertly and i trusted that she would represent me with a knowledge of what I have been through emotionally and mentally. Mariam juggled aggression in how she represented my case, with warmth and understanding in a way I haven't seen during my case. I even mentioned to her that no counsel has fought for my case in the way she had. I truly appreciated how she seemed to take my case on, at relatively short notice, with passion and belief. She did no exhibit any judgement on my faults, my doubts or mistakes I had made, but gave me sound advice and fair criticism where required. I believe there is a difference in understanding the law and understanding the law in how it works for an individual. Mariam has an excellent grasp on the latter. She advised me and guided me on matters that I dont have expert knowledge in and managed to advise me in a bespoke manner accounting for the strategy imposed by the other side. I would definitely engage Mariam again, in fact I would insist my solicitor tries to ensure Mariam is available for any future hearing where i require representation.

It is true to say that Mariam has saved both mine and my family's lives. I contacted Mariam at the very last minute giving her literally a matter of 3 weeks to help me with the most appalling of situations. Mariam told me "you have me now, I've got you and I will fight for your family as if they were my own". And she did. I have not felt like 'another case' for Mariam, she gave importance to my situation, made my problems her own and has breathed passion into her work for me. Mariam has worked relentlessly for me over the last 10 weeks and has encouraged me to contact her at anytime. she always responds... and with both encouragement and advice. Nothing has been too much trouble for her. Mariam has held me up emotionally, has given me hope and strength and has listened intently to everything I have said. She has left no stones unturned. Mariam is brilliant, certainly as a forthcoming, smart working barrister but equally as a human being who has helped to restore my faith (and my family's) in humanity during this immensely crippling time for us. No amount of money can buy or repay what Mariam has brought to our lives. Thank you Mariam, for everything.

Just a quick email about Mia, from day one of speaking with and then later meeting her in person, Mia she has been professional, knowledgeable and approachable. Nothing is to much trouble for her and her advice and support have been of the up most value to me. She has replied to all my many questions in a timely manner with responses that have allayed my fears and put my mind at rest. But for me above all this Mia is a nice person who genuinely cares about the people she is representing, I have never had the feeling from her that I am just another client. I would have no hesitation about recommending or using clerks room direct in the future and especially Mia. Thank you for your help so far with my case.
Mr AC Lay Client
Dear Mariam, I just wanted to say on record a massive thank you to yourself and to Sam for setting the meeting up. I was so stressed as you’re aware but your help at such short notice was nothing short of biblical. I can’t put into words how much easier you made the situation and I’ll be forever in your debt. Your professional approach was outstanding and I would recommend you to anyone. If there is anywhere I can assist to put public comment to recommend you please advise. The most many of Thanks
Mr SDB Lay Client
I wanted to thank Mariam El-Sobky for her kind and professional support in reaching conclusion of a very difficult civil litigation situation. Mariam rapidly understood what was a complex case incisively finding and then communicating the critical points to the court which resulted in the outcome that we all hoped for. In addition Mariam has provided key information in the context of my representing solicitor being closed down by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority enabling me to communicate directly with the county court and maintain visibility in an opaque environment as I patiently await the finalisation of papers and resolution of what has been a horror story. Mariam I am extremely grateful for your representation through this difficult time.
