Client Feedback

“I have been instructed by Caroline Morris for many years and I am able to say, without hesitation, that she is one of the best lawyers that I have worked with in representing such clients”

Mr Simon Kilvington KC

“We had interviews with three or four other firms but chose Fletchers because of Caroline and Aimee; I could see immediately that Caroline is a fighter. I saw that straightaway and I knew she was the best person I could have to help my son. She made it an obvious choice.”

CMA by LWA v Vella v RSA

A case brought by the mother of a protected party after her son was involved in a catastrophic motorcycle accident.
