I am a carer looking after a young man with very complicated mental health issues. Lisa McArthur represented him on 3 occasion's through granted legal aid. Not only did she show an incredible compassion and understanding for this young man, but also managed to convey his plight and complicated issues to the court. This was done with a degree of sensitivity I have not seen before and Lisa made every effort to help me in respect of timing and communication, so that our waiting times were at a minimum and looking after this young man was as easy as possible. I can honestly say she went above and beyond the call of duty and I am very grateful. The world needs more people like Lisa. Thank you very much.
