“..an approach that was clear and realistic, putting my interests first at all times..” Karen Burton

“Nick Phillips recently acted for me and not only is he a first rate lawyer he was more like a confidant than a lawyer. From the very first meeting he quickly understood and assessed, advising of an approach that was clear and realistic, putting my interests first at all times. I cannot recommend Nick highly enough, he is a credit to his profession and I am most grateful to him”.

Dear Nick, I would like to thank you for providing me with legal representation recently. The advice and support you gave me in relation to satisfactorily resolving the settlement agreement with my employer following my unexpected redundancy was excellent. At the time I was struggling to come to terms with the situation and as a result really appreciated the professional way in which you handled the matter. It was clearly apparent that my interests were your primary concern. You explained everything very clearly to me and were always quick to respond to any of my queries or concerns.

I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone who finds themselves in a similar situation and wish you all the best for the future.

“approachable, professional and succinct in their advice.” Anonymous

“I have used Beswicks a number of times as have many family members and always found them approachable, professional and succinct in their advice. I would have no problem recommending their services.”

“She was amazing and turned around my legal documents in less than 24-hours.” S Darcy

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 around 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.
