Recent Testimonials for Nicola Rostron

“Nicola was absolutely professional throughout my case. She is certainly a wonderful credit to Slater and Gordon Lawyers. I'd just like to add that Nicola was polite and brilliant. I would recommend to anyone with similar circumstances as myself to contact Slater and Gordon.”

Mr A, Swansea

“In 2014 I was involved in a malicious incident overseas which naturally made the process of claiming compensation a lot more difficult than normal. Nicola managed to get all of the documents, statements and information required. This was a long process for Nicola but she continuously worked so hard and persevered. Throughout the entire process Nicola kept me up to date via email and telephone calls at times that were most suitable for me. I would highly recommend Slater and Gordon, particularly Nicola as I have first-hand experience of their efforts, honesty and professionalism from start to finish making the claim as easy and minimal (form filling/work wise) for the claimant as possible.”
