"I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your team for all your hard work in securing a positive outcome on my claim. It was a long process but I really appreciate all the guidance and explanations that you took the time to give me. It is good to finally have it all resolved." - Mr R, May 2024

"After being seriously injured in a work accident in 2018 my solicitor of choice was Emma Menzies of Dutton and Gregory. I simply cannot praise Emma and her secretary Nicola Dawkins highly enough. They were kind, caring and extremely professional at all times. Nothing was too much for them and my questions and enquiries were always dealt with in a swift and understanding manner. They helped me when I was unsure of what to do and explained things in a manner that I could understand. Both Emma and Nicki went above and beyond for me and I will always be thankful. I would recommend them to anyone finding themselves in need of an injury lawyer. My case was made easier by both Emma and Nicki and they both have my thanks and gratitude." R.L 2023

"Thank you very much for all the effort that you and your team have put in for me, we could not be happier with the result you have all achieved." - Nicholas O'Halloran
