Sheila was appointed to represent a small family firm who were had allegations of constructive dismissal and disability discrimination against them. Sheila was appointed under the direct access scheme and not only won the case and the family were awarded costs but she did so in an empathic, sensitive way. She managed to communicate the legal technicalities of the case in way which was wholly understood by laypeople – a skill many legal professionals lack these days.
“Sheila taught me to see my situation in a different way and helped me to focus on the positive aspects at a time when I could no longer see them. She is very patient and understanding, and gave me the confidence to not only deal with this situation but with whatever comes my way.”
“Miss Sheila Aly is a polite and courteous lawyer. She is always calm, composed, confident and nothing seems to faze her. Her knowledge of Law would appear to be extensive. Miss Aly was meticulous in her preparation of our brief and conducted herself professionally in court – an attribute which instilled confidence in her already stressed clients! She was commended following the verdict for an excellent presentation by the Tribunal Judge. We would retain Miss Aly’s services should the need arise in the future.”
“Sheila has a small arsenal of tools, methods and advice to break down and solve the problems you are experiencing. She took me through a few of her methodologies to help my working relationships over a few hours. Shay was able to help me understand where the successes and problems lay and also offered many helpful suggestions on how things might be improved”.
“As a Women’s Refuge Board of Trustee’s facing an Employment Tribunal claim against us, we couldn’t have asked for better legal representation than that we received from Sheila Aly. We found her to be sensitive to our needs, to grasp the complexities of our case quickly. Her cool, calm approach that helped to build our confidence whilst seeing our situation clearly was invaluable to us. Sheila’s thorough presentation that brought out the relevant detail of our case ensured that we were successful in our response to the claim. We are more than grateful for the fact that Sheila didn’t disappear as our case ended but stayed to see some extra issues through for us making sure that she competed our case fully. We felt well supported and represented by a true professional who knows her job.”
“Sheila showed me a new way to look at my particular problem by getting me to see things from a completely different angle – a truly liberating experience! She also taught me practical exercises which I continue to use often and therefore I have gained an invaluable and ongoing way to cope and manage my situation. She has a wealth of knowledge and more importantly, the amazing ability to share this in the most patient, professional and caring way.”

My experience of Sheila was that she listened and explained and with calm and careful reasoning represented the facts of my case. No gimmicks, no confusion and a strong legal mind.”
“Sheila is a wonderful empathetic listener. She creates a safe, supported space where her clients can think, explore and find the answers they need. She is a professional, warm, inspirational coach who works skilfully to get the best possible results for her clients.”

She knows what is required to hold an audience and can see what small shifts you need to make within yourself to create the type of presence you want to embody. I LOVE working with her.
