Mentally and emotionally battered after a 2 year Police investigation and Crown Court trial against my historic abuser, I approached Bolt Burdon Kemp to seek damages against the Scout Association and Essex County Council who failed in their duty of care to me.
This is when I met the delightful and incredibly talented Zahra Awaiz-Bilal who became the lead solicitor in my fight for compensation. Throughout the time she acted for me she provided support and understanding and kept me fully informed throughout.
Both defendants were difficult and evasive but Zahra cut through all their bluster and belligerence and won substantial compensation for me in an out of court settlement.
Zahra, backed by the team at BBK is a first class lawyer with considerable experience in dealing with large organisations. Above all she is genuinely fighting for her client and takes a great personal interest in them. I always felt that I was not just a client but someone who mattered.
Thank you Zahra – you really made a difference.
