James has been the most fantastic help throughout my claim and although it took a lot longer than expected due to complications beyond his control, he always kept me up to date and explained things to me in a manner which I understood and his knowledge of medical negligence claims is exceptional.

He has gone above and beyond what I expected of him and he has always acted with the utmost professionalism. The nature of my claim was incredibly sensitive and personal to me and James was always sure to make me feel comfortable and I could tell he genuinely cared about the outcome of my case and did everything he could to ensure it was successful, even in the face of adversity.

I would like to thank James for everything he has done and express my most sincere gratitude, I would recommend him to anyone who requires assistance with a claim in medical negligence.Close quote
