"I recently had to take on a 3rd party to recover costs and some compensation for a non fault injury I suffered whilst at work. I am a sole trader so this had a huge impact on me and my business. I was referred to Kerry Gibbs of Geoffrey Leaver Solicitors by a family friend and I must say the response I got was great. Eager to take on the case, extremely professional throughout and the communication was exceptional. I have never had to deal with a Solicitor before but Kerry made the whole thing very straight forward and simple to do and all in all it was a great success with a good amount of compensation awarded and all costs reimbursed. Great result, Thank you."G Ferguson
