"They explained and helped me through the mine field of the legal process and have been on the end of the phone and email to answer any questions and worries... I couldn't have been happier with the service I received. I do appreciate the work they have done and the outcome which has now just come to an end and waiting to receive my compensation which will help me get on with the rest of my life. Thanks again Ian Whittaker and his team" - 5* Trustpilot review
"My case took over 3 years before reaching settlement, but I was thoroughly happy with the outcome. Mr. Whittaker, who managed my case at Irwin Mitchell, anticipated any problems and explained it to me with unusual clarity and patience, both on the telephone and in writing. I was impressed with his unusual capacity to make sense of an intricate legal situation to a lay person. I ended up receiving a settlement that was twice what my opponent initially offered. I would recommend Mr. Whittaker for his expertise, perspicacity, patience and courtesy without any reservations." - 5* Trustpilot review
"Professional yet personal - two words I have never put together in describing legal services before. Ian W and Michael T were empathetic, compassionate and patient with my mother, listened over and over when she repeated her account. My mother often found talking to Ian & Michael more like talking to family than talking to people in the legal industry.
They make you feel comfortable, supported and explain the case the whole way through - start to finish. My mother’s case is now resolved and I think she’s a little bit sad that she'll miss her conversations with Ian! I can never thank these two gentlemen enough for their tenacity and doggedness to reach a successful resolution on my mother’s behalf. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Irwin Mitchell to all and we consider ourselves well served by IM." - 5* Trustpilot review

"After suffering an horrendous accident & being in so much pain Ian Whittaker assured me he would do his upmost best to represent me. He has done a fantastic job and thought of all eventualities, after a worrying time at the start trying to get an interim payment. This was pursued by Ian Whittaker and he helped gain this payment in order to ease my worrying times as I was still off work & not being paid.. I would definitely recommend Irwin Mitchel to represent you after any injury or for a solicitor. My outcome has been Fantastic and I am over the moon with the outcome.. Many thanks Ian Whittaker, I really appreciate everything you've done for me." - 5* Trustpilot review
