What Clients Say About Jayne

"My experience with Jayne Crawford was first class, I would recommend Jayne to anyone who I know that needs this kind of service." 

"As I’ve never been involved with a claim against any company over my life’s working time, it is, as you know, all new to me. In the end I would like to say that my solicitor, Jayne Crawford, did a thoroughly and wonderfully professional job from start to finish and kept me up to speed in on her progress in my case. It was a really interesting outcome and rewarding for me. I do think Jayne Crawford was very, very pleased as well and I can’t thank her enough. Absolutely well done, professional job!!"

"Thank you very much to Thompsons Solicitors, especially Jayne Crawford and Glen Millar for their efficiency, commitment and perseverance, in their handling of my compensation claim and obtaining a satisfactory settlement."
