Client Reviews

Adrian is an outstanding barrister; we cannot recommend him highly enough.

His knowledge of the law is encyclopaedic, this combined with his work ethic and attention to detail ensures that his advocacy in court is both to the point and persuasive. His written arguments are equally as impressive and fantastically detailed.

Whilst his intellect sets him apart from others he also has a wonderful manner with lay clients and their families, he really cares for them.

Put simply he is a pleasure to work with and we would not hesitate to instruct him again.

I can only give Adrian top marks.
I am an Investigation company who was assisting a client pre charging decision. It came to the point where we needed a QC and we were directed to Adrian. He didn’t disapppoint.
Adrian is approachable, has loads of empathy and really grasps the problems quickly.
Adrian did his magic and we got the result we deserved and hoped for. He is now on Fedora’s ‘Go to’ list. Thank you Adrian.

Adrian Eissa is friendly, approachable but most of all a true expert in fraud, financial crime and regulatory law. He is very highly recommended by anyone who has worked with him, including colleagues and former clients. I’m happy to be contacted by anyone to confirm this view.

Our family will be forever grateful to Adrian. If you are looking for a criminal QC, look no further.

We retained Adrian after a very bad experience with another legal team.

Our son was charged with an indictable offence and as you could imagine the strain on our family was unbearable, as we were in another country. We put our sons fate in the hands of Adrian and let me tell you, we are so glad we did.

Adrian guided us through the process, keeping us updated constantly, nothing was a trouble, emails, phone calls and video conferencing, which included us in the process.

Our sons trial went for 4 days. He received a unanimous verdict of “Not Guilty” within 5 minutes!

Adrian is an outstanding Criminal QC, he thinks fast on his feet, has every detail of the case locked in and ready to defend.

We as a family could never repay our thanks to Adrian and we will never forget the kindness and compassion he showed our son.

I originally approached Adrian Eissa QC via the Public access scheme, when my parents were the victims of fraud, which traversed two continents.

The Public access scheme via the Bar Standards Portal is excellent. It allows lay clients to directly instruct Barristers.

I cannot recommend Adrian highly enough. We received excellent help and advice. He was approachable, thorough and compassionate. He patiently guided us through a process which was extremely difficult. Adrian has been outstanding. His professionalism and expertise is of the highest standard.
