“Legal practice is a calling. A client’s trust is a privilege.”
The firm’s motto has always been to make every claimant count and to champion the cause of the lay person against large and sometimes intimidating companies and organisations. Our clients are our best marketing resources and the firm continues to take on deserving cases, frequently deferring legal costs to the end when the bulk of such costs are recovered from the Defendants and their insurers.
We believe in building relationships and when we are entrusted with a client’s case, we do not take it lightly.
Our solicitors take the time to meet each client personally as many times as required, usually beginning with a free initial consultation where the prospects, process and likely outcome are explained in detail. Clients are regularly updated so they are confident and assured in the handling of their case and better understand the process. That way, both client and solicitor can work hand in hand to ensure the best possible outcome.
