  • Bethany was absolutely phenomenal, I cannot speak more highly of her.  On the day of the settlement hearing she just took charge, only using the barrister if she needed backup.  She really impressed me that day.  Her negotiation skills were fantastic and she communicated everything to me at all times. …
  • Beth and Susan [Slattery] were amazing.  They were both really sympathetic in their dealings with me which was much appreciated.  I felt that the service was excellent, they kept me informed throughout.
