I couldn’t fault the team at Brachers for their help with a compensation claim regarding my late husband.

Efficient, friendly service

Jeremy gave me straight forward honest information and advice. He was very knowledgeable on the subject and took our case over after we had received useless information from a local solicitor who had cost us dearly and basically told us to settle. Jeremey fought our corner and successfully got the case withdrawn. Efficient, friendly service. Always answered the phone and emailed back swiftly. Spoke in simple terms and explained things thoroughly.

The team was led by Jeremy Horton who undertook my case of depression against my employers. This ran over 10 years and Jeremy and his team was brilliant. They kept me up to date as what was happening, the preparation of all the legal paperwork that seemed to run into volumes. The barrister they employed was fantastic and even when it was necessary they went back to court and appealed. Working continuous for such a long period and never giving up, always having the end result in mind. I cannot see anyone could have asked for better.
