Andy was a great help. Guiding trough the process and discussing the option available. He was always looking to get the best option for me. All in all a very smooth stress free process. Thanks.


I approached Andy for assistance over a settlement agreement which i was being asked to sign up to with my now ex employer. Andrew offered an excellent service and took over correspondence between myself and my ex employer. Everything was then sorted quickly and efficiently.
