I have found all the staff and the solicitors that I have seen have been very kind, thoughtful and very helpful. I cannot praise them enough and I would not go to anyone else at all.
Easy, regular and relevant communications both written and orally.
The entire process from my claim being taken was dealt with in a highly professional and more importantly timely manner.
I have used Forbes when pursuing a claim for a friend, along with every other legal matter I have been involved in, both personally and professionally. I cannot rate Forbes highly enough.
My Solicitor always returned my calls promptly and set my mind at rest about all of my concerns. Thank you!
I was extremely happy with David Mayor. Absolutely excellent in every way. Thank you.
Very satisfied with everything. Very helpful would recommend you to my friends.
Robin Bower and his secretary were very easy to talk to and always friendly.
John was fantastic through the whole process giving clear, sound advice.
I was very pleased with the outcome and would recommend Forbes Solicitors to anyone in the future.
The legal process can be difficult, complicated and very testing. I was involved in a contested claim against 2 Defendants and Leonie helped me through every step of the way through to trial.
I am happy with the way things progressed, the service was professional, quick, and my solicitor Leonie Millard was very approachable and explained things well.
I approached John Myles when I was at rock bottom and felt that I had exhausted every possibility of proving my case.
The service I received far exceeded my expectations.
As a person who is unaware of the law, I never felt at anytime overwhelmed, as your dealings with me were clear and professional. This has been very much appreciated.
"I was very happy with the service provided by Forbes, the Solicitors always kept me informed and they were very prompt and practical."

The service I received from Mr John Myles is second to none. Very many thanks John and I will be in touch on another matter
