Jan Willem heeft mij zeer deskundig en op heel betrokken wijze bijgestaan in mijn zaak (een arbeidsrechtelijk conflict). Hij heeft er, ondanks een begrensd budget, veel (extra) werk van gemaakt om er voor mij het beste uit te halen. Ik kijk terug op een goede, plezierige samenwerking, met een prima eindresultaat.

Jan-Willem was recommended to me by a friend: “If you want optimum results and a strategic partner in legal matters, call Jan-Willem”. This turned out to be exactly the case in mine.

I was so pleased with his services that I’ve on my turn recommended him to all my relations in need of legal assistance. In all of these cases Jan-Willem acted very thorough and provided top-knotch advice, always in the best interest of the client.
