Shaw Graham Kersh, Laura Porteous, Solicitor SGK Solicitors TEL: 020 7734 9700 24 HOUR POLICE STATION ADVICE: 07074 959594 35 GREAT MARLBOROUGH ST, LONDON W1F 7JF LAURA PORTEOUS Solicitor (Admitted 2010) Email: email@example.com Secure email: firstname.lastname@example.org Laura joined this firm in 2010 from another Legal 500 ranked London firm. Since then she has developed a reputation for being an incredibly hard-working, intelligent and unflappable lawyer who will do all she can to achieve the right result for her clients. She is a qualified duty solicitor and is on the Central London Magistrates', Youth and Extradition Court rotas and appears daily in the Magistrates' Courts where she has garnered much praise from the bench for her skilful advocacy. Laura also manages an extremely busy case-load covering the full spectrum of criminal offences and extradition matters. Her ability to quickly identify the issues in a case and get to grips with matters at short notice has resulted in her regularly accepting late instructions in cases where Legal Aid has been transferred from other firms. Laura has a particular interest in Youth Court work and has dealt sympathetically and conscientiously with children and young adults charged with the most serious of matters. Laura is also a committee member of the London Criminal Courts Solicitors' Association. Client feedback: "I found Laura Porteous to be really supportive throughout the process, she offered good advice, was responsive and professional at all times. I would definitely recommend Laura". "Thank you for seeing the honesty in me. You treated us with kindness and empathy. If all solicitors were like you it would be good" "I found Laura always clear, sympathetic and a good explainer of the issues and law. [Her] time efficient attention to detail…impressed me. In all my nervousness, I felt confident in her good work". "Laura was very knowledgeable and thorough, for all my cases it felt like I had someone guiding me throughout" This case was transferred from another firm one month before trial, following which Laura requested previously unrequested items of disclosure which directly led to the defendant's acquittal.
