Following an accident at work, due to having some experience in construction claim process, however, after a few months realised the construction claims and Personal Injury claims process are totally different, I decided to engage a specialist personal injury law firm and chose Slater and Gordon.
The person who would be dealing with my claim would be Jeff Logan Principal Personal Injury Lawyer at Slater and Gordon. There is no doubt appointing Slater and Gordon was a good decision and having Jeff as the person acting on my behalf turned out to be excellent.
Jeff and his team, in particular Helen Ferrell soon got down to business and took all the pressure of dealing with the claim away from me. Jeff kept me informed every step of the way, he did not give me any false hopes. His advice and guidance was both factual and frank. Even the Barrister Jeff instructed was frank and honest and spoke in a language I could understand.
Just over 12 months after instructing Slater and Gordon, my case was settled as a result of me accepting an offer from those I was claiming against. As I had recently been diagnosed with bladder cancer and had two operations, I wanted the case settled. There is no doubt if I had not accepted the offer and the matter had gone to trial there was every probability the award would have been greater than what I accepted. However, given my illness and the stress of this alone, I chose to accept the offer and the decision to accept the offer was mine and mine alone.
Without Slater and Gordon input I would not have had the result I had. I would not hesitate in recommending Slater and Gordon. They not only handle the case competently and professionally, they take time to answer any questions you may have and speak to you in terms you can understand. They even come to your home to meet with you.
Thank you Jeff, Helen and Slater and Gordon.”
“I would like to thank Laura for dealing with my clinical negligence claim. Using her skills and vast experience she represented my interests very well. She updated me regularly on the progress of my matter and was very thoughtful and interested in taking all necessary steps to make sure that my son and I are rightfully compensated. Thanks to Laura’s commitment and professional approach everything ended well for my little son and me.”
“I must say that I very much appreciated your counsel and demeanour throughout. It was a real pleasure to deal with you. You are a consummate professional, but also very human; your empathy and understanding during the darkest hours was appreciated more than you can know. I would have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone who needed a first class employment lawyer.”

“ This has been the most fraught, stressful experience in my working life. So I particularly valued how you clearly communicated my options in your initial advice which gave me the confidence to appeal the grievance. I also appreciated the fact that you worked quickly to try to minimise delays even if my employer didn't! I'd be very happy to recommend you to others who find themselves in need of an excellent employment solicitor.”
