"Injury at work - Shahina Sakeria (Associate Solicitor) and her impeccable team were always on the end of the phone politely pointing me in the right direction, when I was injured at work through no fault of my own. Yes it took over a year to finalise the claim but there were many people associated with and included in my recovery. I couldn't praise them any higher for their expertise in dealing with my claim. I would recommend their services to anyone who has/going through similar issues." - View from a satisfied client
