CLIENT: Raymond Chandler
TESTIMONIAL: My case handler is Aimee Ratcliffe and I am so glad with how well we get along. She understands me too, I don’t always like reading long emails because of my dyslexia and countless amount of times she has sent me a email and I’ve then rung her to get her to explain it to me. Definitely makes it easier for me.

CLIENT: JL (anonymity order in place)
TESTIMONIAL: I can’t stress enough the professionalism the whole team showed when dealing with my mum’s claim. I am over the moon with the help, support and guidance in what Fletchers provided to me and my family. A really good relationship was built over the 4 years and I’m sure will continue while working with the Court of Protection team who again can’t be any more helpful in providing their support and knowledge. I will personally like to thank Caroline & Claire who I have had the most communication within the team and show my appreciation for everything they have done.

CLIENT: James Thornhill
TESTIMONIAL: I can’t thank Julia Eyton and her team enough for what they have done and the result they achieved for me has been life changing. From the outset they have kept me fully up to date with every aspect of my case. They ensured that I got the best rehabilitation possible. The care I have received from the experts they sent me to has been unbelievable, I can’t thank Fletchers enough. Finally I would like to mention the barrister they appointed for me Andrew Ritchie, he has been amazing for me and has financially secured me and my family’s future.

CLIENT: Harold Davies
TESTIMONIAL: I really appreciate all the help that I have received throughout this case. Fletchers Solicitors have been fundamental in my recovery after my accident. The counselling and physio sessions proved to be a great help.

CLIENT: Konrad Zajac
TESTIMONIAL: Gerard Horton and Gemma Roberts are doing an amazing job. I was surprised how well they understand what has happened to me as a result of my motorcycle accident. Sometimes they understood it better than me, probably because I just couldn’t accept the way I am since the accident. Every conversation is at a top professional level, simplified or explained. I always get updates, so I am aware of every stage. Due to my memory problems I receive reminders if I forget something. I couldn’t get any better support than the one I am getting from Gerard Horton and Gemma!

CLIENT: Gracie Sumner
TESTIMONIAL: Hannah was very helpful and patient handling the case. She always went above and beyond to answer my queries. She always listened to my concerns and responded in a timely manner. She understood the importance of the claim needing to include an award for the emotional impact caused to Gracie. Thanks for your support and navigation through this case so far. I wish Hannah and the team continued success in the future.

CLIENT: Tracy Dawn Clough
TESTIMONIAL: I am very thankful to all who were involved with my case, Emma Sharples, Iain Dodd, Richard Allbeson, Especially Daniel Finney, from the day he took over my case he made me feel like a person and not a statistic, he was easy to talk to, to let him know exactly how I felt, even through tears at times. He was always empathetic and listened, reassured me even when I had teary moments. Thank you all for fighting my corner and winning.

CLIENT: Dr Mark Chandley
TESTIMONIAL: I am aware I scored your service highly. I am constantly struck by the high emotional intelligence of your staff, the competence of my case worker, the eloquent way in which he operates and the gracious manner in which I am treated. Thank you.

CLIENT: Oliver Thomas Johnston
TESTIMONIAL: Stephanie, my case handler was fantastic throughout, and I could not be happier with how the case has been dealt with. The advice I received was great. Stephanie also kept me in the loop on timings at all times. She even informed me when she was on annual leave, and therefore out of the office and for me to expect a delay in response. This was fantastic, as one of the key things in ensuring a case is being dealt with is being kept in the loop on what’s going on (in my personal opinion!) – this was certainly the case. Huge thanks, please do ensure to share this with Stephanie.

CLIENT: Alexandra Holden

CLIENT: Charles McNorton
TESTIMONIAL: I would like to thank Juliette Griffiths, Francesca Paul and Andrew Hesketh for their help and support over the past two years. Each has been professional and thoughtful in the way they have dealt with me. Throughout communications have been timely and left me feeling totally involved and informed in the process. Also they dealt with me in a sympathetic and empathetic manner and at the same time made sure I understood the reasons behind the processes involved. All in all, a service which will be a pleasure to recommend.

CLIENT: Sundeep Kaur
TESTIMONIAL: Katy Link and team were exceptional in handling my case. At all times I received a very professional, prompt and compassionate service and I am so grateful and pleased I had Katy acting on my behalf. I absolutely would not hesitate in recommending Katy and the team at Fletchers Solicitors.

Thank you to Katy from the bottom of my heart.

CLIENT: Elizabeth Sarah Webb
TESTIMONIAL: Francesca Paul was brilliant – I am truly appreciative of her empathy which made a difficult situation so much better.

I feel very fortunate to have had Francesca look after my case.

CLIENT: Elaine Catherine McGowan
TESTIMONIAL: I gave a 10 as there was no score 11 for over and above!! Jennifer Corcoran completely surpassed any expectations I had, in the way she fought my corner, and got results even when the case seemed hopeless. Would highly recommend her to anyone and thank you so much for supporting me throughout.

CLIENT: Sehrush Suqleen Butt
