Dr, Kent

“I recently had cause to engage the services of Slater & Gordon to help protect my interests as I was experiencing a particularly difficult time at work. I was advised by Sarah Evans throughout a challenging process of defending my employment record and negotiating a way forward. I'm pleased to say that I have largely reached a successful conclusion and wanted to formally pass on my grateful thanks to Sarah for all of her hard work and sound professional advice. Sarah was always available to help, often at short notice, and displayed a warm touch and an uncanny ability to summarise a jumble of information into a small number of effective points for me to use. The flexibility and personal touch Sarah showed throughout my experience meant that I felt I has someone was genuinely on my side - no mean feat as I'm sure Sarah is always juggling a huge workload. Sarah is clearly a credit to both herself and your company. I would have no hesitation in recommending her to someone in a similar position to me and I wish her very success in the future.”
