Although Junior in call Matthew is already a confident and tenacious advocate (appearing on his own and succeeding in a permission to appeal application). He has a meticulous approach to the planning and presentation of arguments on paper and is naturally comfortable with clients from different walks of life due to his innate interpersonal skills.
