"We had a very serious car accident and the service which we received from Irwin Mitchell has exceeded our expectations in all aspects. I have especially valued the sympathy, kindness and sensitiveness of our solicitor, Simon O'Loughlin, throughout the whole process in this very difficult period of our life. Highly recommended!" -5* Trustpilot review
"Despite the longevity of the case we always felt that Simon kept us up to date, had our best interest at heart and was working hard towards a solution that we would be happy with. Simon maintained a professional and friendly disposition throughout protracted negotiations. Discussions about our accident have brought with it lots of angst and trauma, but dealing with Simon was always an absolute pleasure. Simon was hard working, tenacious, professional and humorous and we were so lucky that he was assigned to our case. His guidance assured a successful outcome to our case."- 5* Trustpilot review
"With only a six week window, Simon O'Loughlin Solicitor took over my case and prepared it for a County Court Liability Hearing. During this period he navigated both a Barrister case conference and empowered the client. He did all this with effortless professionalism, a sense of humour and a no nonsense approach which inspired me with confidence. Having secured the desired outcome it is onto stage 2. I have no hesitation in recommending Simons specialised legal representation for all who suffer personal Injury abroad together with the marvellous Irwin Mitchell Team to whom I am so grateful to get this far." - 5* Trustpilot review
