  • "Sean Harrison, my solicitor throughout the LA care proceedings, did a terrific piece of work throughout my entire case. I was so very stressed because I felt my disability needs were being overlooked by the LA but Sean decided to handle seriously ensuring I understood every detail and that I had the right people to support me. I had a successful ending to my case and I recommend Sean highly."



  • "The solicitor dealing with my family case, Sean Harrison, was very timely in his responses to my queries, and went out and beyond to help with the case. I felt 100% supported and would not hesitate to recommend the firm."



  • "I highly recommend Simpson Millar Solicitors. They dealt with my case and helped me throughout the process until everything was taken care of. They explained everything in detail and made the process a better learning experience. Sean always responded within 24 hours and kept me updated. I am grateful for the help I received from Sean and his team. If I ever (which I hope I don't) get into any other trouble, Simpson Millar are the ones I will call. Thank you so much for everything."
