Tahir Ali (Duty Solicitor / Higher Rights Crime & Civil

Reference

I have worked with Mr Hussain for over four years. His practice areas were civil litigation, family and crime. He combines hardwork with efficeincy, he is very competent and a quick learner.
He has a client focused, logical approach to problem solving and an assidious mind. I have worked alongside him on routine as well as complex criminal and civil matters.  During his time with the firm, I saw him grow into a leading member of the team and he would often be asked to supervise and assist office juniors. 
Mr Hussain works well on his own or as part of a team and he is personable. I am sure he will be an asset to any firm.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

To whom in may concern,
I have been asked to provide a short personal reference for Mr Azhar Hussain.
I have known Azhar for several years during the period that he worked at MB Law Solicitors.   The firm regularly instruct me in the civil / common law field. When I have come into contact with Azhar, he has always struck me as conscientious, professional and diligent in advancing our lay clients’ best interests.  
We met from time to time in conference and it was clear that Azhar was on top of the detail of each case and never afraid to put in additional preparation work. 
Significantly, Azhar was always able to receive positive or negative advice in good grace and to pass on the same to clients.   He was well regarded by all those he came across.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Azhar to a prospective employer. Please note that this is a personal reference and the views expressed are not those of Lamb Building Chambers.
Yours faithfully

Dear whom it may concern,
I have had the pleasure of working with Azhar for a year (2016-2017) throughout my employment at MBLAW Solicitors Ltd.During such time not only was Azhar a pleasant colleague to work with but also an excellent mentor who introduced myself and a number of other new employees to the legal profession.
Despite having a heavy and challenging workload, Azhar was always happy to provide invaluable advice and support; often being the first point of contact for all the employees, even by those who were much more senior to him.
Other than bringing a wealth of knowledge and experience to the office, Azhar provided the office with a dynamic and positive energy, which was fully appreciated by everyone, especially at challenging times. Azhar’s admirable work ethics and exceptional ability to truly connect with colleagues and clients alike made working with him thoroughly enjoyable.
I would strongly recommend anyone who is presented with an opportunity to work with Azhar to do so. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me on the email provided below (info@aquadebt.co.uk).
Yours faithfully,
Masuma Ahmadyar Director Aqua Debt Resolutions Ltd

My experience of working with Az has been both eye-opening experience and very beneficial. I had learned a lot and received more support than was needed, which has really helped build my confidence.
I looked up to him as my Senior, and if there was anything I did not understand, I felt I could speak to him and he would clear my issues in a way that I understood.
He is a team player and very knowledgeable in the area of law he deals with. Any advice I need, he would be the person I go to. Highly recommended.

I am happy to provide this reference for Azhar Hussain. I previously worked in the same firm as him.  I have moved on but do fondly remember my time. Az is a helpful, caring and supportive individual.
He would always work hard to ensure the morale in the office was high and would often deal with difficult issues faced by the firm. I know him to be a point of support and assistance for many other staff junior to him. 
I know Az is well spoken and writes particularly well.  He is experienced in many areas of law and would often work under pressure handling matters in different areas of law daily. I believe he would be a great addition to any firm and would be beneficial no doubt!
Regards 
 Sadaf Hussain, Paralegal.

To who ever it may concern
Azhar has been very helpful to me during his time working with me. I consider him to be a smart, helpful and caring person who has helped me and other staff to progress.
I wish him all the best and consider he would be very beneficial addition to any team.  If there were any issues during the day Azhar would be the point of call and would try his best to help sort out any problems.
He is a thoughtful person and always wanted to help staff to progress by always being available to listen and guide. This includes any new staff (including those he interviewed) who he then trained and helped to be able to handle the high-pressure role. His experience is very vast that includes the area of criminal law, family law and civil law.  He will be  an asset to any firm.
I wish him great luck in the future. 
Thanks.

I had worked with Azhar whilst I was a Paralegal at MB law for a year. This was my first ever legal job and first opportunity to be hands-on with official matters.
It was overwhelming and difficult to get my head around. Azhar, who was a Trainee Solicitor at the firm,  assisted me on many occasions without hesitation. He had a friendly and positive attitude, this was reflected by the number of clients he had within the firm.
A skill which I have adopted from Azhar and still use every day is organisation/file management. He explained the importance of these and how this can be achieved with ease. Whilst I was working at MB Law, Azhar had assisted me greatly, i.e. with Crown Court applications, statements – and even for general enquiries, he was my “go to” person.
“…I learned a lot from you and it was a pleasure working with you. I wish you the very best Az…”

I provide this short reference for Azhar Hussain. I have known and worked with Azhar for over four years.  Azhar has worked on high profile and complex criminal cases. I consider Azhar to be an intelligent, hard-working and driven individual. He is capable of undertaking responsibilities and a workload beyond his years whilst communicating effectively both in writing and orally.  His ability to remain motivated, take responsibility and be a quick learner (often digesting large volumes of information) makes him an effective and leading member of the team.  I recommend Azhar as an asset to a future employer.

To whom it may concern,
I have been asked to provide a personal character reference for Mr Azhar Hussain. When I started as a Trainee Solicitor at Mb Law Ltd, Mr Hussain provided me with help and guidance within Criminal and Civil matters. It became immediately apparent to me that Mr Hussain entailed an extensive amount of legal knowledge and was diligent, professional in his approach.
Mr Hussain has assisted me throughout my training contract, and has always provided a ‘helping hand’ in all legal matters. Mr Hussain has extensive legal experience and is an efficient, hard worker and experienced Solicitor. I would class Mr Hussain as an exceptional lawyer and ‘Top notch’ Solicitor.
I would most certainly recommend Mr Hussain to any prospective employer and he would be an valuable asset to any Law Firm.
Yours faithfully,
Mr Suraj Vasdev
