Recently I had the need for urgent legal advice in relation to my employment. I contacted Hall Payne and was directed to Luke Forsyth who give me direct, clear legal advice which brought my matter to conclusion within 48 hours.

This was a clear example of a group of solicitors who wanted to serve their client by thoughtful advice at a minimal of costs.

I recommend you contact them. It will be worth your while.

I had the pleasure of working with Craig Joshua to help me with my fairly complicated workers compensation matter, and I do not think I could have found better support during this difficult time for me. Craig not only put together a watertight case, but he was always there when I had a question and took me patiently through the whole process from start to finish. On top of that, he went above and beyond by giving me advice how my claim would affect other proceedings and vice versa, which I am grateful for. The icing on the cake was of course the big win at the end!
