Recent Testimonials for Clare Armstrong (Parkinson)

“Clare was fantastic in explaining everything to me clearly and resolving a potentially difficult situation efficiently and professionally. I’d recommend her to anyone.”

Professional Copywriter, Manchester

“Thank you for all of your help, you've been excellent. Actually you've been the only person who I've found in this whole process who has appeared to apply the same level of care and thoroughness to their work as I would have done myself. This has meant a lot to me as it allowed me to trust your advice and judgement without difficulty, which in turn really helped to take the strain off me. I also appreciate your efficiency where we have needed to work within payment limits, and that you have always responded to my communications promptly.”

Civil Servant, Manchester

“The huge effort and support afforded to my colleague and myself by Clare Parkinson at Slater Gordon has gone well beyond the expected level of service to assist and advise over recent months. I am aware that Clare has been involved in lengthy discussions with the Force in an effort to reach resolution and furthermore when those efforts failed she delivered a high quality evidential bundle for use at the ET this week. Having assisted Officers in several such cases in recent years this level of service certainly makes my life a lot simpler. I would happily utilise or recommend Clare for such cases in the future.”
