His advice is reassuring without being unrealistic. His case preparation is thorough and shows both a keen eye for detail and a determination to explore every possible angle”

David Barnes, Barrister 3 Temple Gardens

“Harry Charalambous is a great solicitor with exceptional legal knowledge. I found Harry to be very thorough in his work and he covered all the bases in my case. I found Harry to be very supportive, understanding and generous with his time. He communicated well throughout my case and was always easy to contact which was of great help to me. I received an excellent level of service and the best outcome. A big thank you Harry for all your help and assistance.”

Sharon Dibosa


“I am still in a state of disbelief at the verdict, although I always believed in his (capability?) this would not have happened without the amount of work you put into this and your incredible patience. From our first contact with you in dealing with all of our questions and communications.

The amount of time you gave us and making yourself available to us is very much appreciated. One of your key contributions was to secure the services of David Barnes. He kept us all on an even keel and his summing up for the defence was masterly. We did thank him at court but please let him know again that we are very appreciative of the extra time he also gave on our behalf.

I suppose it has restored my faith in the justice system although the police did not emerge with flying colours. More particularly it has made me much more appreciative of the legal profession. Thank you so much again. This must rank as one of your greatest achievements.”
