  • "The service I received was first class and would recommend this company for their outstanding hard work and dogged persistence throughout my claim and to ensure that I received the compensation that I so justly deserved. As always in these cases there were people in the background carrying out the works for the solicitor who added to a most successful outcome, well done all at Simpson Millar Manchester and thank you."
