My clients love what I do

“I wrote a review in October 2021 with regard to a minor employment law case ‘withholding wages’ by a previous employer. I am very pleased to say that today I received an agreed settlement. This was only made possible by Mr. Andrew Bryan, who have me excellent advice on procedures that I should follow to take my case forward. This case was not about the monetary value, but showed, that employers, ultimately have a responsibility to their employees and that they should fulfil their legal, but above all their moral obligations. Once again, I would like to convey my gratitude and thanks to the Churchers team for their advice and help in this matter. My very best wishes and Happy New Year. ” Jan 21
“I have been dealing with Andrew Bryan at Churchers Solicitors regarding a recent dispute. He has been professional throughout the process always providing me regular progress reports. His relentless attitude and perseverance towards a rather difficult situation meant we achieved our goals and aspirations set out in our first appointment. I would recommend Andrew and Churchers for all aspects of Law. He is a true gentleman and is a credit to his firm.”

“After trying my usual solicitors, Walter Gray, I was concerned to see they had been taken over by another company. I need not have worried. My dealing with Andrew Bryan was efficient, helpful and sensitive. I thank him for his expertise and, if my circumstances change, look forward to working with him and the Churchers team again.”
