I was very happy about the service I have received. Although it has taken some time to finally go through, I have been kept informed by letter and telephone calls.

I was very satisfied with the service provided by Simpson Millar in the dealing of my personal injury claim. My solicitor kept me informed with all developments and arranged all the medicals I required in a timely fashion. I would have no hesitation in recommending Simpson Millar to family and friends in view of the excellent and courteous service that I have received from them.

We wanted to thank you for making our claim, we could not possibly have done it ourselves, we also felt you went the extra mile to help us validate our claim.
