"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
