‘A very friendly professional attitude, and help has been available on each occasion the need for a solicitor has been required.’

‘My solicitor was so helpful from the very first appointment. I was so pleased, my solicitor was reassuring, diligent and persistent throughout the case. Constantly making me aware of the state of play with my solicitor concluding with winning my case and I could not thank her enough.’

‘I have had several dealings with Hatch Brenner and have always found them to be thoroughly professional and efficient. I was particularly impressed with the speed with which they finalised my late wife's estate. Similarly a nephew's purchase of a house was concluded within weeks. Procrastination is not for Hatch Brenner! In football parlance Hatch Brenner are "on the ball".’

‘I have used Hatch Brenner in the last three times that I have required a solicitor. I have used your services for unfair dismissal, an insurance claim after a cycling accident, and the most recent in divorce and remortgaging my home. In all cases I have felt comfortable that everything has been taken care of efficiently. Thank you.’

‘I am extremely happy with the prompt professional service and clear expectations and advice received.’
