What others say about me:
Laura Franklin possesses ‘the soft skills necessary to deliver a sometimes difficult message to staff with both clarity and empathy’. Legal 500 2018
‘I was very impressed with Laura’s proactive approach throughout. Her calmness and no nonsense realistic advice made what was a very stressful situation palatable. I would highly recommend Laura & the team at Beswicks Legal.’ Mr L
“I was in a very distressed and difficult employment situation and I was recommended using Beswicks through a friend who was familiar with them in a professional capacity.
As soon as I approached Laura I immediately felt at ease and she listened, understood and grasped the complexity of my employment situation effectively and efficiently. She was able to advise me and was on hand to answer any queries which she responded to quickly. I had previously gone through my home insurance legal cover which did not meet my needs.”
“I felt confident that Laura had given me the right advice and different options depending on what my employment outcome was going to be which helped me prepare. Laura completely took the stress out of the situation.”
“She was amazing and turned round my legal documents in less that 24-hours given a short turnaround time on my part.”
“I would use Beswicks again and specifically I would choose Laura to represent me in any future case should the need arise”. S Darcy
