This was my 1st time seeking legal advice and to make the matter i had breached my employment contract. From the moment i spoke to Abigail I felt comfortable and in safe hands Louise and Colin advised me clearly on my options and path each of my decisions could lead me to. i followed their advice and was very happy with the outcome of my case. Once again thanks Louise for your knowledge, help and time. I would recommended Brachers. Expensive but very professional and straight to the point with no wasted time.
