I can't thank Simpson Millar enough, and particularly Sarah Holdsworth, for how they handled my very long and complicated negligence case. I was very happy with the outcome, as what I received was a lot more than I originally expected. Sarah treated me and my claim with empathy and understanding and I could not think of anyone I would rather have deal with it. I would highly recommend her if you are looking for a medical negligence solicitor. Thank you Simpson Millar and, more importantly, thank you Sarah Holdsworth. L Cooper
My insurance company allocated me to Simpson Millar and to be fair I had never heard of them before. I am extremely cynical about solicitors and somewhat nervous of dealing with them at a distance and by email. Sarah Holdsworth was my allocated solicitor. I have to say straight out that Sarah Holdsworth was incredibly professional throughout. She kept me informed, responded to my emails diligently, explained what were often complex legalistic matters in simple terms and kept things on track.
Most importantly Sarah never over promised, managed my expectations, but ensured, despite the NHS, we made progress. I could not have hoped for a more professional solicitor and am delighted with the final outcome. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Sarah Holdsworth as an expert solicitor in medical negligence claim matters. Robert Della-Sala
