Ms Walsh - GMB Member

Having had our case for the Protection Award against Bezier finalised I just wanted to take time to say a big thankyou to you and everyone at Morrish who has been involved in fighting our corner over the past year.

It has been a long and arduous 12 months for myself and many of my former colleagues who you have helped, and these payments I am sure have been gratefully recieved all round.

So, thankyou for your hard work in getting the result we all wanted, and indeed needed, you have been a pleasure to have been connected with, very approachable, friendly and informative at all times.  I would not hesitate to utilise your services again should I ever need to in future, and I am confident that goes for many of the other people you have assisted with our case.

Once again, a big thankyou from me personally.

Mr Hallett

I want to express our appreciation to you for the exceptional service we were privileged to receive. Your immediate response, particularly at such a late stage in the proceedings, your excellent, continuous sound advice and the accessibility you provided helped me considerably to deal with the whole experience.

Mrs Lambert

Toni at Morrish solicitors gave excellent and clear guidance initially and when Toni went on leave and Paul Scholey took over, the way he advised, supported, negotiated and guided me through the process was exceptional. In a difficult situation and one which I had never envisaged being in, it was made so much less painful with the help of Toni and Paul.

Mr Giles

I am very grateful for your prompt, effective and efficient service. I will certainly use your services in the future if required and will also recommend  to my colleagues.

Dr. Ahmed
