Recent Client Testimonials


"Beltrami and Company were recommended to me approximately 5 years ago, when I found myself the subject of a criminal and professional investigation. Once the criminal investigation was concluded I was referred to Alistair McGarvey, who specialises in professional conduct hearings as I was subject to proceedings on the grounds of gross misconduct.

One of the most unexpected things for me was how complex and legal in nature and language the whole process is and especially the actual Conduct Hearing itself. I would never have been able to represent myself in such a forum. My impression of Mr. McGarvey throughout the SSSC proceedings has been of someone who is very professional, efficient and knowledgeable in this arena.

Mr. McGarvey dealt with all the documentation and legal aspects of my case. He was direct and open about possible outcomes, his view on how the case should be conducted and the costs involved. During the Hearing, he was extremely well prepared, informed and supportive. I could never have managed the process without his representation.

The outcome was substantially more positive than I had originally expected and I retained my registration. This I solely attribute to Mr. McGarvey and his skill in preparing and presenting my case. I am delighted with the result. I would highly recommend him to anyone who finds themselves subject to conduct proceedings by their professional body." – SS

"Alistair McGarvey provided me with legal services including representation and counsel regarding an investigation by a professional body.

Alistair exhibited an exceptional level of diligence when reviewing evidence and provided sound advice which led to a successful outcome in difficult circumstances. Had I not instructed Alistair I would not be in the position I am today.

I would recommend Alistair to anyone who is facing the difficulties of a legal matter be it criminal, civil, or regarding an investigation. Thanks again Alistair, your help is very much appreciated. " – RC

"Whilst, as you said; you were just doing your job, we want you to know, and perhaps reach a little deeper in your thoughts in order to acknowledge the impact you have had on us and our lives.

On first meeting with you, and thereafter, you were compassionate, caring, genuine, and above all professional and honest. You carried this sincerity throughout every meeting we had, including court attendance and when awaiting decisions by the Judge.

Your endeavors, have kept our family together, and for that we feel truly blessed. Our future now has chances and choices that we may not have had without your efforts." - FM
