If you need help in Court and are stuck as to what to do next then I've found this firm to be very approachable and forthcoming, and have found myself better off after using their legal team.
Fantastic service, personnel were brilliant. Highly recommend.
Woodfines are an outstanding firm of solicitors! If you want the best person with you in court get a solicitor from Woodfines. The situation of being charged with a crime is upsetting enough; don't make it worse by employing a solicitor from elsewhere!
Offered great service and was very understanding of my son's disabilities and kept us informed with his case and offered great support.
Compassion, understanding and totally approachable. A real "people's solicitor".
The best legal advisors ever! 5 stars to Mrs Michelle O'Garro!
