Stala is extremely knowledgeable in her field, she is willing to pick up the phone at any hour to reassure or clarify client concerns and will go beyond the call of duty to ensure her clients are cared for and confident in their position. Her calm yet strong demeanour and talent in front of my barrister and judge was particularly impressive.
