My clients love what I do
“I found Matthew very efficient and easy to deal with, very pleased he was on my side! It was a very difficult case that took sometime but the outcome was very very good.”
“I recently used Matthew Bailey to represent me in a clinical negligence claim. I found him to be an excellent solicitor, strategist and negotiator. His network of contacts and wealth of experience, particularly in recommending an appropriate medical expert, proved crucial in securing a successful outcome against a very intransigent defendant. Both Matthew and his secretary were a pleasure to deal with.”
