"Many thanks once again for all your help with the employment tribunal. It certainly helped a great deal to have a solicitor on side who was very knowledgeable, helpful and approachable."
"I wish to express my gratitude for all your hard work and advice these past weeks with our tribunal hearing. You handled proceedings with a relaxed confidence, which kept me in a positive and focussed frame of mind on the day. I felt well prepped, confident you knew the issues involved and had faith in your judgment and advice. I feel we could not have been better represented. Thank you very much indeed. It was and is much appreciated."
"Laura, I'd like to thank you for all of your kind support and extremely careful work. Also for working so late last night. Brilliant result in my view. Well done you!"
"I would like to say thank you very much for all of your help and professionalism during a particularly stressful time. After a long period of time, I really do feel that this was the best result for me. Thank you for all of your responses and advice."
