I was very impressed with the friendly and courteous attitude of Mr. Nathan Taylor-Allkins, your Solicitor who acted on my behalf. He was very presentable, well mannered and very understanding. He addressed the Magistrates in a confident and very respectable way and achieved a reasonable and gratifying outcome to the charges against me.
I was very pleased with all you did for us on the day and you reassured, guided, and made us both feel much more comfortable with the situation. Your advice was greatly appreciated.
Outstanding, will never use another company!
Brilliant service, care and understanding of my needs and situation.
Nathan was excellent throughout the full duration, in our meetings and in court. Outstanding!
Confident, assured and calm. Nathan was very quick to key into my concerns and noted the salient points early. Desired outcome achieved by your firm having specialist knowledge in the relevant field.
Mr Taylor-Allkins was stellar. His professionalism, expertise and court room demeanour was first rate! Please ensure all associates take a page from his lesson plan. I will recommend the firm solely based on his performance.
I felt safe with Nathan there, my anxiety was through the roof but his calm presence & his efficient manner quickly settled me. I don't think I would have achieved the same result without him, he really knows his stuff.
Nathan was highly professional, motivated and thorough in his approach to my case. I chose to go with Woodfines due to the methodical and realistic approach he presented in our first meeting.
On the day of the trial he was reassuring and greatly helped minimise my anxiety towards a very stressful situation. Overall I couldn't have asked for better service, many thanks.
My particular case was very sensitive and emotional for both me and my wife. I first visited your Milton Keynes office in October 2015 and was seen by Nathan Taylor-Allkins. He was supportive and showed real empathy from our first meeting until the very end when he personally rang me to let me know the successful outcome.
Nathan was always highly professional but made himself available to speak and comfort me as my case dragged on. He always remained realistic but continually made me feel positive throughout. His common sense approach was very much appreciated throughout the 2+ years.
Finally, I would have no hesitation in recommending Nathan to anybody in need of a "highly professional, empathetic & supportive solicitor." My personal thanks to Nathan and his team.
