Recent Testimonials for Danielle Parsons (née Harnett)

“I have been lucky to work with Danielle on both of my redundancy positions. Danielle has a relaxed and helpful manner and made me feel valued even at these low points in my career. I was able to understand the settlement agreements and ask for information from my previous employers that I would not have thought of had I not had the support from Danielle. I will definitely return to Slater and Gordon should the need occur in the future - hopefully though not too soon. ”

“Danielle provided helpful and straight forward advice in a timely manner in response my Employment Law enquiry. She was professional and very easy to deal with, and I was able to satisfactorily resolve the matter knowing that I had a firm understanding of the legal contract that I was being asked to sign. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Danielle Parsons and Slater Gordon.”

Anonymous, London

“Slater and Gordon were excellent at matching my case to Danielle Parsons. She had the exact area of expertise I needed help with. Danielle and I had an initial conversation at a time that was difficult for me. She was understanding, and quick to grasp the issues and provide next steps. The issue is now resolved, with a much better outcome had I not had Danielle's advice. I cannot recommend her highly enough.”
