Recently used Irwin Mitchell and I highly recommend them. I dealt with Lewis Black, Abbi Copson and Leah Webb and I must say I cannot recommend them enough. Always professional and offer advice, getting back to you quickly. Would highly recommend these guys and Irwin Mitchell. - 5* Trustpilot review
"I went through a difficult time with my previous employers who had dismissed me wrongfully. Abbi and her team were extremely professional, helpful and compassionate to my case. They went above and beyond for me to help bring justice to my matter. I am utterly grateful for their assistance and could not have asked for a better solicitor and team. I would recommend Irwin Mitchell to all. Thank you!" - 5* Trustpilot review
