Hardworking, supportive, approachable, patient and smart. Simply the best solicitors I have ever come across.Mark
As always Rose, Many thanks from all of Jean’s extended family for your help, support and compassion. You are truly a very special person and a credit to your profession. From my own personal standpoint you have made this whole experience so incredibly simple and guided me through every step of paperwork, I’m not sure there is anyone who could have been so easy to work with. Stay safe and keep doing what you do so incredibly well. Matthew
One of the best!! I am so glad I went with this company. I met Rose where I work, explained my situation and she was so helpful so I decided to go with her. Every time I was in a panic or didn’t fully understand, Rose explained everything to me in a nice, calm professional manner. Rose will fight for your claim and she won’t back down and that’s what you want. Shamila Akhtar
Very good service...Rose is the bestLeonardo

      • £5.75 million for a below -knee amputee in his 40s who lost his leg and badly injured his arm in 2017 meaning that he could no longer run his business. The claim was delayed by medical setbacks and a prolonged recovery.
