What Clients Say About Marina

Marina was fantastic.  I was kept fully aware of the proceedings from start to finish.  Her professionalism was never in doubt and I was very confident that she would try her best to bring my case to a conclusion.  Very happy client. Mr G

I would highly recommend Thompsons.  The service was second to none, could not have asked for anything better.  Marina made sure I understood all the process.  S Huddart

I consider the service which I received from Thompsons Solicitors and Marina Urie in particular, to be of the highest possible standard.  At all times I was kept informed of the progress of my claim and every step was explained clearly.  I was impressed by Marina’s confidence and the fact that she did not quote figures which could create unrealistic expectations. Never having been involved in a claim for injuries sustained at work, I had to be guided through the process, which Marina did professionally, but with understanding and compassion. I am very happy with the settlement which was secured for my claim.  I would have no hesitation in recommending Thompsons to others.  Fred T

Excellent service always helpful and good communication anytime I called, will definitely recommend to family and friends.  I would like to thank you and your staff for all the hard work on my claim.  D Paterson.
