Testimonials

  • "Rachael is a very brilliant and tenacious lawyer who leaves no stone unturned. She has excellent client skills and has a thorough understanding of the area of law she works in. She is a great pleasure to work with." - Samantha Knights QC, Matrix Chambers

  • "We worked with Rachael Davis in 2017-18, when she and her head of department, took up a few of our Criminal Injuries Compensation Scheme appeals. This was a planned strategic legal action to put pressure on the Scheme and ultimately on the government to change both its rules and how the rules are applied in claims for sexual offences. Unfair rules were exposed as having resulted in hundreds of victims of sexual violence being denied any compensation. These particular appeals were an important tactic in challenging both the devastating individual injustices and also to build national pressure for change to the whole Scheme. Throughout our work together Rachael worked well under pressure, was kind, patient and thoughtful, and willing to explain legal details where we needed this. WAR’s campaign including these appeal cases and others, brought together applicants who were previously not in touch and enabled them to actively participate in a national campaign, adding their weight to the national movement of victims demanding justice and compensation, and putting pressure on charities, politicians and government institutions to support their call for reform. As a direct result, the government is conducting a review to work out what changes to propose." - Lisa Longstaff, Women Against Rape
