    "The day after I was told that I was going to be made redundant, Laura, on a friend's recommendation, took on my case. The combination of her empathy, her toughness (concealed and only brought out when needed), her understanding of the finer details of employment law and her willingness to burn the midnight oil on my behalf meant that I could stop fretting, while she entered into negotiations with the company. They didn't know what had hit them once she got into her stride and the outcome for me has been more positive that I could ever have imagined. I heartily recommend her. Thank you Laura."

    "Laura, acting for me in an employment-related matter, did not simply provide sterling - and successful - legal service, she also provided wise counsel, constructive advice and continual moral support beyond any expectation I could have had. I was able to hand over the day-to-day negotiations to her with complete confidence that she was giving them her best attention, fighting my corner and reporting back to  me regularly and without delay. She was reachable and accessible to me at any time, regardless of the hour and with endless patience (and good humour). To anyone seeking a superlative employment lawyer, I would recommend Laura without hesitation."
