Latest testimonials"The Solicitors dealing with our case have all provided an excellent standard of work and high level of expertise in bringing a long and complex case to a conclusion. Many thanks to you all."
"Tiffany Benson was entirely professional and efficient in her handling of a difficult situation I found myself in trying to deal with another firm of Solicitors. Her approach was direct and supportive and she always kept me up to date with each step. I would have no hesitation in recommending Tiffany."
"We found Hewitsons helpful and informative in our initial discussions, with costs and benefits of various approaches made clear. Once engaged, they were proactive and kept us well informed of progress. Although our particular claim was reasonably complex, it was pursued rigorously, and with a very satisfactory outcome".
My enduring impression of Hewitsons is that it is a professional and client-dedicated organisation with a great deal of expertise. No stone was left unturned in pursuing my case. Soliciting legal advice has been a more complication and, at time, personally stressful process that I had initially expected. However, with the support of Tiffany Benson and her colleagues at Hewitsons I have felt supported all the way through this. thank you.
