"Antonia is the most efficient lawyer I have ever worked with" - Gary McAteer
"The team at Beltrami and Co were sympathetic to the circumstances of my case; carried out an efficient, yet full, analysis of the facts; and swiftly recommended a course of action which I was happy to follow. As a result of thorough preparation and excellent negotiating skills, Gary McAteer and Antonia Crawford achieved the best possible outcome on my behalf. Thanks for your support during a difficult time." – AB, Leeds.
