What Our Clients Think of Gavin

  • "Gavin really does care a lot about his clients and is always there when you need him. I can’t thank him enough for everything he’s done for me and my family over the years. It can feel a little daunting at first, but he’s always there to help clear things up, and make things as simple as possible. Gavin and his team are all very professional and you are always made to feel like their number one priority. All Gavin’s hard work and commitment has helped towards providing me and my family with a home, and I’ll be forever grateful to him for it."



  • "I first contacted Gavin in December of 2016. I found his approach to my situation and circumstances to be both empathetic and understanding. He was tremendously supportive throughout the evidence gathering process and had fantastic insight through his years of experience of who to get involved and how to approach things regarding my case. He has always only been a phone call or email away and I find it remarkable how invested and knowledgeable he is. We could go a few weeks or months without talking and for him to be able to pick up on my case exactly where he left of, with the level of detail retained is quite impressive. He secured a fantastic result for myself and my young family and we are now in a position to move on with our lives. Thank you Gavin and Simpson Millar. "



  • "I highly recommend Simpson Millar. I had a personal Injury claim that was not the simplest to claim for. However despite this, my solicitor Gavin Hughes dealt with this with the most professional and ideological approach. He always kept me informed with any updates and was polite and courteous. He cares about you as a person and not just a figure as some solicitors do. Thank you to Gavin and his team for helping me! Would highly recommend!"
