"I cannot recommend Tara Lyons highly enough. She has represented several clients at final hearing and on each occasion her preparation and advocacy has been second to none. The results she has achieved for my clients have been exceptional and on every occasion at the very high end of what I could have expected a Judge to award. This is down to the thoroughness of the preparation, the energy and care she brings to her work, her ability to work well under pressure and Court deadlines, and the fact that Judges really like her. I particularly appreciate the way she keeps me as her Instructing Solicitor in the loop. She will always telephone me to discuss the case prior to a hearing and will consult me throughout appropriately. She has a very good manner with clients who love her."
"May I please firstly comment on the tenaciousness, attention to detail and professionalism that Ms Lyons has displayed both in respect to us as clients and in her role as our Barrister. She has undertaken our case, which was extremely challenging due to a number of complex issues and has successfully secured a judgement in our favour. Ms Lyons is a credit to both the legal profession and Pump Chambers"
