Howard Robson was excellent.  He explained the process at every stage, was very swift in his responses and made me feel at ease with what was a very upsetting period in my career.

I don't know how it differed to pre-Covid but it seemed easy to communicate via email, phone and letter.  Solicitor was very quick - no faffing unnecessarily and a long, impressive legal letter went out very quickly.  It was easy to understand.  We felt supported.

A step above the rest!  Honestly, couldn't have been better.  Patient, understanding and very professional, thank you!

Great personalised service in my hour of need. A settlement agreement was proposed; Warner Goodman wasn't the first law firm I approached, but it was the first that seemed to offer the personalised service I was looking for when others gave the impression of an impersonal production line covering the basics only. Howard Robson was incredibly supportive and he took over the stressful negotiation process on my behalf. It was an incredibly difficult period, but Howard's support was just what I needed to get through it.

Efficient and professional service. From start to finish my case was handled professionally and courteously.  My solicitor responded to any queries promptly and comprehensively.  Very pleased!

Excellent and speedy response to our legal case.  Very professional, guided us in the right direction and ensured we had the correct representation at the time.

Howard has been and continues to be more than just my solicitor – he is my calm and is there when I need reassurance.

Excellent support. Howard dealt with an HR case expeditiously and in a totally professional manner. I always felt he was working to get the best outcome for my business, 100% satisfied with the service.
