What Clients Say About Stephanie

“Thompsons have provided me with truly outstanding service - from the start of my claim to its successful conclusion.

I had never had cause to use a damages claims specialist before - and I thought long and hard about who would best suit my needs. I am so glad that I selected Thompsons - their team, in particular Stephanie Young and Laura Connor, could not have been more understanding and supportive during my case.

Taking legal action for a damages claim is clearly not something you do every day and it was a world that, generally speaking, people like me have not encountered before - so expert knowledge and support is absolutely vital.

I could not have wished for a better legal team and I would 100%  recommend Thompsons services to anyone looking for a thoroughly reliable, results focussed and caring legal team” -  SVR Client

“Excellent service”

“Miss Young was very thorough throughout the entire procedure. Polite, courteous and very understanding. This made the whole experience a lot easier on me. I will be recommending Thompsons to anyone that asks me for advice about legal services. I cannot thank all of you enough for help and professional services. I expected this to be a tedious and stressful experience but thanks to the way Thompsons walked me through each step I found it was much less worrying than I thought. Special thank you to Stephanie Young”
