Recent Testimonials for Patrick Maguire

“Thank you for your support during the process, to you both and to all the Slater and Gordon team. I cannot thank you enough.  My special thank you to Patrick, who has been beside me on this journey from the beginning, thank you so much for your patience and support in hard times.  I will now hopefully be able to move forward with my life and although I will never ever forget, it's an important chapter that closes now. ”

Ms M

“My husband and I would like to say a heartfelt thank you for all your help with his claim. When your life is turned upside down on a normal March day, it’s difficult to find a way forward. Things come at you in phases, the initial shock, the injuries that my husband suffered and pain he went through, the massive changes to our daily life and not knowing what the future holds. Many people have helped us, all helping to make sense of the problems we faced and building a new picture of the future. You have been the very human face of helping us get the best financial settlement and for that we thank you. My husband always enjoyed his chats with you and was noticeably up beat following your phone calls. Please pass on our thanks to Dominic, it was a pleasure meeting him. Once again we really appreciate all your hard work with this case.”

Mrs R, London

“I just wanted to say a big THANK YOU to you and all of your team for the work you have done to get some justice for Andrew. We have now put things to bed and will try and get on with lives, but I will still be supporting 'BRAKE' in their campaign. Once again many thanks, and keep up the good work.”
