What Clients Say About Natalie
“Natalie conducted herself in a very professional manner at all times. She took the time to explain things I didn’t understand. A credit to her profession and Thompsons Solicitors.”
“My experience in dealing with Natalie has been a very positive one. She has fully explained every step to me and checked my understanding of what has been said. Her level of patience and pragmatism, coupled with her commonsensical and business-like approach, has helped me immensely during the past 12 months as I have overcome physical injuries, and made inroads into my emotional state. Thank you so much.”
“Although my case was fairly small, Natalie always made me feel important and kept me well informed at every stage. I felt I received good advice at every step and if I ever need help again, I wouldn’t hesitate to call Natalie.”
“It truly was a breath of fresh air when you came on to my case. Everything just seemed to click with you at the helm and we got a really nice and fair compensation package at the end without the need to go through a court case. Thank-you once again for all your time and effort (including your own "free" time at the weekends). I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Thompsons in the future, thanks in no small part to your hard work.”
