I have had the pleasure of working closely with
Tosin for over five years. We would not hesitate to instruct Tosin on any
family matter. I have attended several court hearings with Tosin and he is a
very confident and respected advocate. His focus and attention to detail and
level of preparation, are second to none. The feedback from clients is always
hugely positive. – Sallianne Cockerham, Southampton Row Solicitors.
I have instructed Tosin for at least ten years. I
consider him to be a very able and conscientious Counsel. He has represented
many of my clients over the years and I have never received anything but praise
for him from them. I have attended court with him and consider him to be an
extremely able advocate. By the same token, he will also attempt to negotiate
whilst presenting a calm and kind influence to the client. – Lynn Philpott,
I have known Tosin for a number of years in his
capacity as a Matrimonial Counsel. At all times I have found him to be
dependable, hard-working, conscientious, honest and courteous and most
importantly professional; I trust him to carry out my instructions to the
letter and to do his very best for my clients. He has an excellent legal mind;
he is astute and methodical without being dogmatic. I have been advised by our
local District Judges on more than one occasion that "the Counsel you used on
the case of X was extremely good.” – Jon Charles, Richard Wilson Long
I have known and have instructed Tosin for over 10
years. My clients, over the years have often asked for him to represent them
after meeting him stating that they find him calm, patient and knowledgeable.
As I undertake primarily care work, I act for many young and vulnerable
clients. He is always kind to them, well prepared and ready to fight their
corner, no matter how weak their case may be. – Shabnim Desouza, T G Baynes
My case load is primarily Publicly Funded Care
Work. I have instructed Mr Tosin Oguntayo on a regular basis for the last
eleven years. I have found him to be extremely conscientious and hard working.
The feedback that I have from my clients is that he is very well thought of by
them. Other Solicitors/Counsel have also made favourable comments to me when
working alongside him in long running Trials. – Susan Diplock, Griffith Smith
