Case Manager (Criminal and Regulatory)

Ruxandra Marina Pitu is the case manager handling mainly Magistrates’ Court and Crown Court cases.

Previously part of Kingston University Law Clinic following completion of her degree, Ruxandra obtained a wealth of experience advising people on a pro bono basis. This allowed her to hone her client care and interpersonal skills.

Ruxandra had worked in compliance at her previous firm but chose to move on due to her passion for criminal defence and regulatory based work. Ruxandra also speaks fluent Romanian and can assist clients that are of Romanian origin in communication and is particularly popular with these clients, but experienced across the board in managing cases from the beginning until the conclusion.

“I am sending this e-mail today because I would like you to realise what an asset Ruxandra Pitu is to your company and how pleasant, caring and very professional she is”.

Nelson Guest have been acting for my grandson and because he suffers from Autism and learning difficulties and has been going down "the wrong road" so to speak, I wanted to try help him when he appeared at Court for sentencing with a letter to the Magistrate.  I first got in touch with Nelson Guest and spoke to Ruxandra asking for advice as to how to go about doing this.  Ruxandra sent me an e-mail for guidance.

I rang Ruxandra continuously asking various questions and although I was probably "getting on her nerves" she was never rude to me always very polite and helpful.   She did not have to advise me at all as your company was not acting on my behalf.   Even if I called her and she was on the phone when I called, I would leave a message asking for to call me back and she always did.

I was really worried about my grandson as he has not had an easy life and Ruxandra made me feel confident and at ease.

Ruxandra is absolutely amazing and I hope your company recognises her amazing qualities that must be absolutely beneficial. to your company.

Thank you very much for all your help Ruxandra.”

“I was represented by Nelson & Guest. I highly recommend their service. They were professional, respectful, and non-judgemental throughout. Extremely thorough and caring and went the extra mile. Always kept us informed, and instilled us with faith that our case was being handled by respectful professionals. They helped achieve a more than satisfactory outcome, resulting in our vindication. Thank you to all at Nelson Guest. We are eternally grateful.”

“Ruxandra and Greig were excellent in my drink driving case. From start to finish. They kept me informed throughout the case and made me feel at ease at a very worrying time. I would highly recommend Nelson Guest solicitors and their fees were very reasonable. The outcome was I kept my driving licence - excellent result - could not have done it without Ruxandra and Greig at Nelson Guest.”

“I was in a bit of trouble not long ago; Nelson Guest really took care of me from the first phone call and through the COVID-19 pandemic.  I was also lucky to be represented by Mr Nelson himself and everything went fine, and I was happy with the outcome. Thank you.”
