Saika was instructed by a father in his successful Court of Appeal case of AA v NA and Kab in which Mr Justice Mostyn gave detailed guidance on the circumstances in which a court should consider an appeal against findings of fact in domestic abuse cases.
She was also instructed by a father (a professional footballer) in the case of Re TW and TM (Minors). This was a successful appeal against an order for child maintenance top up.
Saika Alam has provided me with invaluable advice in relation to matrimonial matters during the last few years. I have valued her patient, client-centred approach and ability to remain calm in the face of adversity. I would highly recommend her.
Saika Alam is the only person I would ever go to. She has always advised me in the most professional and honest way possible. She works in a way that makes you feel comfortable and you feel you are in good hands. I have referred so many people to her and will continue to do so.
