Recent Testimonials for Remziye Ozcan
“ 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.”

My Settlement Agreement was dealt with exceptionally quickly and efficiently (beyond my previous experiences and expectations of a legal firm). Remziye's attitude, candour and empathy helped a great deal in a scenario in which was unsettling and unfamiliar.”
