At Thompson’s we would like to reassure all our clients that as far as possible we are operating as normal. The health and safety of our staff and clients is our primary concern during this outbreak and as such we are reviewing the situation on a regular basis and will be adapting our working practices following government guidelines. However, we have had to make some minor changes to how we are doing things.

Following Government guidelines, we have temporarily closed all of our offices and our staff are now all working from home using secure technologies to ensure they are able to continue to progress with existing and new cases as normal. All face to face meetings have been cancelled, however we are continuing to hold these meetings via phone and video calls. All the team are contactable on their direct dial numbers and email should you need to speak with your solicitor, please do not hesitate to talk to us about anything during this time.

We know these are uncertain and unsettling times for many of our clients, and the wider population, and things might look a little different for the foreseeable future. But our focus remains on our dedication, knowledge and strength that we provide to all our clients. We will continue to provide updates over the coming days and weeks in accordance with official guidelines and to keep everyone informed of the situation.

As always, for any concerns, advice and updates on your case; Talk to Thompsons.

What Clients Say About Marina

Can I say I am beyond pleased with the service that Marina Urie has given me.  I have been kept up to date all the way to the final outcome and I can't thanks Marina and Thompsons Solicitors enough.  I would recommend your great service to all. Mr B, Galashiels

Was very impressed with Marina's manner, hard work and expertise.  C Stewart

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.
