Frequently Asked Questions

Why choose us?

Mr Hayward's passion for justice, wisdom, and hard work won our case at the tribunal at Towcester. We will gladly use him again and recommend him to others.

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.
Great service from Mike and the team. I would greatly recommend their services, it was clear, precise and very approachable.

Mike Hayward was exemplary during our current engagement. He approached the case with compassion, dedication and skill to achieve a good outcome. His knowledge of legal matters and best approach are exemplary. Throughout initial meetings expectations where discussed in reality not just it will be fine, for me this was very helpful in what to expect through proceedings. I am also offered the opportunity to speak to other specialists in the firm should I need them. I feel blessed I knew of Mike and put my time trust in him and the firm as a whole. Thank you.

I would advise anybody to use Woodfines as they are very helpful and good at their job.

Jane is the most brilliant person I have met and she is so professional in her job and so helpful and I would most definitely recommend her to other people.

Jane Anderson dealt with my case in a friendly, efficient and totally professional way. She put me at my ease and achieved a successful outcome with minimum fuss.

I found Jane Anderson to be most professional and very down to earth. Her advice was most helpful and I would have no hesitation in recommending her to others who found themselves in a similar situation to that in which I found myself.

I didn't know what to expect, but Jane Anderson showed a very genuine interest, was completely, even "forensically" aware of all aspects of the case, spotting facts and drawing inferences that I had missed.

I can say, without exaggeration, that I have total confidence in her. In the unfortunate event that I should need a criminal lawyer again, I would not even consider anyone else.

All that and she is a good egg too!
