• Thank you so much for acting on my behalf and will be using again for sure and will telling family or friends of the company.

  • Oakwood Solicitors team are always most helpful and proactive. They have provided me with invaluable legal advice in personal injury. Oakwood Solicitors was my fourth attempt to try to get my claim off the ground. Once I provided them with the specific details required they understood my claim and guided me through the process every step of the way, to successfully win my case on all points.The aftercare and closing of the claim were equally attentive. I am particularly indebted to Madalina Dobrean who lead me to success with my claim within 2years. A tremendous achievement. Madalina is a professional lawyer who helped and guided me through the detail of my claim, even through the challenging times to bring about a realistic prospect of success.

  • Oakwood from the outset of my application to make the above claim, have treated me impeccably throughout the entire process. Advising and keeping me fully informed. I realise that to achieve a satisfactory outcome in these long drawn out processes must involve a team which need to be efficient in all departments and your company certainly must be so. Not withstanding the teamwork, My particular contact was Cameron Potter. He informed me of the progress all the way through the process. It would be remiss of me not to thank him personally for his commitment. I would recommend Oakwood unconditionally, based on my dealings with the practice. Thank you and Best Regards P. Sellars

  • Service was very good, and the treatment I have received has been very good too. Thank you

    Mr Starkings
  • You are an absolute star! Your reflections on my case are really helpful. Thank you!

  • Thanks for all your hard work it was worth every penny!

  • Thank you so much Sarah you have been brilliant! I started back at work this week and everyone is surprised at how quick it's gone through, I've told them all I had the best solicitor. Take care!

  • With Sarah's help, advice and encouragement I am not fearful of the events ahead. She gave me the opportunity to see forward again. Her input has helped me in more ways than I can mention, not just the legal issues which I can't thank her enough for. I feel like I've climbed out of a hole and I am no longer the person I was when I walked into Sarah's office. I simply couldn't quantify or understand what was needed, to put all the things into place to move on, Sarah did this for me. Once again, a huge thank you for everything. I can't say much more than that.

  • I instructed Sarah in relation to my divorce as she was recommended to me by a friend. She impressed me with her knowledge of the divorce process, her understanding of the issues I was facing and her speed of response. Above all, it was her guidance and sensitivity around how to approach/manage some difficult discussions with my ex-wife (especially in relation to matters impacting on my children), that I valued most. A first class service that I would, and do, highly recommend.

  • Thank you for all your help and support! You're a star!

  • I would like to take this opportunity to thank Natasha Hardy of Oakwood Solicitors for all her hard work dealing with my claim. She is a very professional lady and has worked endlessly on my behalf to achieve a satisfactory outcome. I would be very happy to recommend Miss Hardy and Oakwood in the future.

  • I was impressed with the straightforward, focused and professional service that I received from Sarah. The quality and clarity of the advice that I received were excellent. At each step of the process I felt informed and supported. I also found the billing process very transparent and the monthly accounts helped with budgeting. Overall the service I received represented excellent value for money. Thank you again for helping things to go so smoothly.

  • 100% Satisfied with your service, Jessica Grainger was friendly and totally professional and replied to my calls and emails promptly, thank you so much.

    K Bennett
  • I am very pleased with the outcome of my claim and have always found both Emma Piorkowska, and previously Jessica Thompson, to be extremely professional and very helpful in answering any questions which I have had. It has been an ongoing situation and very stressful but you have always been extremely reassuring and have kept me informed at every stage. I would have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone who is need of legal advice.

    Mrs L Mitten
  • Just wanted to say thank you for your help (and patience) in processing the payment and purchase of my house!

    Steve Gill
  • Womens Health Matters have used Oakwood Solicitors for a few years and our current contacts Ben Palmer and Charlotte Harman have provided us with excellent support. They are knowledgeable, professional and efficient; whether advising on a particular HR issue we have sought their advice on, or supporting us on the development of internal HR documents, or a wider discussion on personnel structure. We have recently renewed our HR and Employment Law package with them and look forward to their support in the year ahead.

    Mrs R Mulryne (Womens Health Matters)
  • Rebecca's help was much appreciated. I'll be sure to recommend and use Rebecca and Oakwood Solicitors in the future.

    Mr J McDonald
  • I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your team for all the hard work you have all put in on my case. Thanks Charlotte!

    Mr M Jones
  • Thank you for all your help and support through this process. Couldn't have done it without you. Thanks again! Take care.

    M Mitchell
  • "I retained Ben to represent me on an employment matter, which had the potential to progress through to a tribunal. He was not the first lawyer that I spoke to, but he was certainly the last. He instantly put me at ease and made me feel like I had someone onside. He was empathetic, professional and understood all of the details. He gave me expert advice from the very first call I had with him and allowed me to start to feel more in control of a situation that I didn't feel I could handle without him. Ben clearly explained what the process would be for me, and guessed at the way my former employer would respond. He was completely right on all accounts. Whilst I didn't fully understand the legality of the situation without Ben, I knew that I had been made to feel small and ignored in the face of something that I felt was so obviously unjust. Having someone as competent as Ben taking on the argument for me meant that I could remove the emotion from the situation and, with his expert guidance, make the right decisions to bring the matter to a resolution that I was happy with. He kept me closely updated, offered recommendations and protected my interests beyond the confines of the specific case. He was doing his job, but he is exceptional at it and his job really matters. I wholeheartedly recommend him.

    Mrs L Menson
  • Many thanks for your help in dealing with my Will and Lasting Power Of Attorney during what has been a difficult time for me.

    Mrs S Howe
  • Throughout the claim I have been given excellent help and information from the people at Oakwood Solicitors. They were very professional all the way especially Natasha Hardy. Natasha was so friendly and helpful throughout and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the company to friends and family. Thank you very much for all your help.

    Mr K Kaneo
  • I wanted to say thank you for all your alterations regarding my Will. You have been so kind, thoughtful and patient. Thanks a million!

    Mrs C Friend
  • I just wanted to thank you very much for doing the wills for me and Sharon, and for guiding us through the sometimes tricky process, especially as we are South African and unfamiliar with the English Law way of doing things.   I also wanted to let you know that we have recommended your services to a friend of ours. Once again, thank you for everything.

    Mr and Mrs Bank
  • The level of service I received was excellent. Thank you Colin for your help.

    Mr Adams
  • Our client suffered a 4.5 hour delay from Manchester to Las Palmas. We successfully obtained 400 euros each (from Thomson Airways), this was offered following the issuing of Court proceedings after the airline failed to provide a response to the letters of claim.

    Mr and Mrs McAdams
  • The L family's case was settled in April 2017. The family was struck with a 3 hour 15 min delay from Budapest to Luton. We successfully obtained 250 euros each (from Wizz Air Hungary), this was offered following the issuing of Court proceedings after the airline failed to provide a response to the letters of claim.

    The L Family
  • Mr and Mrs F's case was settled April 2017. They were struck with a 12 hour delay due to cancelled flight from Manchester to Malaga. We successfully obtained 400 euros each (from Norwegian Air), this was agreed only 9 days after we sent the letter of claim.

    Mr and Mrs F
  • Quality service, no improvement needed.

    Mrs Jones

  • As a new Head coming in to a school during a turbulent period, I found Ben Palmer’s guidance and advice invaluable. I would not have been able to achieve the required changes within the school as quickly and as smoothly as I did, without having the benefit of his expertise in Employment Law and experience in resolving HR issues.

  • Rosedale & Jones Property Consultants, as part of the very reputable Keller Williams brand take great pride in the image that we represent to the outside world. I personally believe in going above and beyond for our clients every single time. Communication, a strong sense of integrity and a proactive results driven attitude are absolutely key to maintaining this approach for the long term. I have worked with Keira numerous times now, with each being a pleasant experience! I’ve also recently had the pleasure of working with one of your conveyancers, Megan Neethling, on a residential sale in Leeds. I was extremely impressed with Megan’s general attitude, communication and most importantly, her dedication to the client’s needs. There were frustrations with the buyers legal representation on this particular sale, both myself and the client were far from impressed, Megan and Keira however performed their duties to the highest level throughout. I very much look forward to our next interaction with your company and will be making a continued recommendation to all of our clients in your favour based on the service and standards I have seen.

  • I would like to thank you for all your initial help and would recommend you to my family and friends in the future.

    Miss M Begum
  • I just want to thank you for all your help. What was an incredibly frustrating and upsetting time for me, it was made e easier having you on the case. The feeling I had when you advised you would accept the case was amazing as I was genuinely hurt that this had happened to me and didn't agree with it, so having you behind me really eased the situation! I really cannot thankyou you enough Tiffany!

    Kelly B
  • Everything was spot on. Thanks, Sarah Jane for your support throughout!

    Mr H
  • We would like to thank you for all you have done for us. Your work is incredible - all the support, help and quality of communication was extremely helpful; massive credit to you all. Special thanks to Tiffany Whitwam - our claim handler for been so operative and professional !!!! We are incredibly happy with the communications and timing.

    Mr and Mrs Radosa
  • I don't know how to start off but Oakwood solicitors are a fantastic company. The reason for this is because they process all the claims very fast and always kept me updated every step of the way which I was very grateful for. Moreover, my heart goes out to Lindsay Slater who was very much in control of the entire claim. She was fantastic in her role and I give her and the company a big credit for everything they have done to win my claim. Finally, I would like to say, keep up the good work you guys do for everyone and will definitely recommend you to my friends and others.  

    Mr Banjamin S
  • First class service. Great contact, was not a local law firm in my area, I was still able to easily communicate even when abroad. I am very grateful to Oakwood Solicitors, and I would use this firm in the future. I would always recommend to my friends and family.

    Adrian P
  • As my case is closed now, I got my entitled compensation but without your help, it wouldn't have been possible. I would like to thank you, Tiffany and Oakwood team for looking after my case and for their help. Wish all the best and good luck in the future

    Mr Edmond L
  • When faced with an unenviable task of potential litigation, Richard and the Oakwood team were able to offer sound legal advice. The speed at which you were able to get to grip with the Terms Of Business and the litigation case reassured me that we were in safe hands. Real people doing real work and making a real difference - what a refreshing change it is to be supported by pro-active lawyers from the start to the end of a transaction. I would not hesitate to recommend Richard and the team to both small and large clients alike. I don't profess to know much about commercial law, however the results speak for themselves.

    Emma Easton Managing Director, Strand Recruitment
  • Level of service excellent no need for improvement.

    Mr Timpson
  • I have had the privilege of working with Keira Rawden for a number of years. Keira and I worked on a number of major highway projects where Keira acted as our legal officer in land assembly, preparing s278 and land agreements. Keira also acted on our behalf on the legal issues in the funding agreements for the West Yorkshire Transport Fund. She has a detailed understanding of what is required and made the legal process of our schemes flow smoothly. Keira is a lovely person to work with and I would recommend her for any senior role at any organisation that is fortunate to employ her.

    Miss T Brewer WYG Global Management
  • Keira supported my team on a number of procurements of complex services and for various other legal matters. She was clear, concise and focused on all legal matters also bringing incitefull challenge to procurement processes.

    Mr D Cooper Consultant in Public Health
  • I had the pleasure of working with Keira whilst she was Senior Solicitor at Wakefield Council. Keira is very professional in all aspects of her work and is approachable and friendly. Her advice as a Legal advisor was excellent and Keira pays attention to detail, which proved invaluable in supporting a number of high profile Council projects and teams.  I would highly recommend Keira as a highly competent and capable Legal advisor and a valued colleague.

    Ms J Hall Commissioning and Business Development Manager - Wakefield Council
  • At Rosedale and Jones Property Consultants we take great pride in the high standards of customer service we represent. Because of this it is absolutely vital that any recommendations we make to clients uphold those standards.  Keira has been a fantastic asset to us in the time working with her, she is always so enthusiastic and extremely meticulous in her approach to her work. She has gone above and beyond what we expected by introducing us to key individuals that have actually assisted in the growth of our business.  Keira seems to possess a genuine desire to help the people she meets and I would not hesitate to recommend her in a professional capacity.

    T Samad
  • I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for an outstanding service. Your speed and professionalism have been impressive and the good will gesture is much appreciated.

    Mr C Rivers
  • Oakwood were really understanding and listened. Despite me having no injury, I did have a brand new car that I thought might have been effected. I wanted to be listened to and Oakwood Solicitors were reassuring and confident that they could help me.   If you have invested a lot of money on a new car through no fault of your own you’ve had an accident but not injured yourself, if your car has been repaired it will not have the same value it had prior to the accident. You have a right to claim that money back. Approach someone who will take you seriously. I was curious and followed this up, and was really happy to know that it could be done.

    Mr Bangi
  • Melanie Taylor was great. She informed me of everything and was very, very helpful. She is a credit to your company.

    Mr K. Fortis-Carter
  • I attended a JSM yesterday in Leeds at which Roisin Paterson was present. I had taken out a personal injury claim against my employer, the Home Office, for which Roisin was my legal representative accompanied by the lawyer she instructed. My own observation is that Roisin has provided me with invaluable legal expertise and advice and throughout a three year period she has not only kept me informed but also fully involved allowing me to make informed decisions and when doing so being aware of the consequences and likely outcomes. I believe her calm and sensitive  behaviour belies a steely determination and resilience to deliver the best value for her client and in my instance this was achieved. At times I can be rather combative but Roisin was able to deal with any volatile emotions without losing sight of her brief and always in a professional and considered manner. I doubt I could have coped with the obfuscation, delays and deliberate prevarication my employer used without her. She was able to provide re- assurance when necessary but more importantly helped me focus on the achievable rather than the wishful. Roisin is an absolute credit to your organisation and her profession. I would have no hesitation in strongly recommending her to others. I am so grateful to her and thankful that I chose Oakwood as my legal representative.

    Mr J M
  • I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you so very much for the excellent work that you have done on my behalf. Your tenacity and the way in which you have kept me up to date throughout this long process is a credit to you and to your company. I hope that they appreciate the person they have working on their behalf. Once again thank you very much.

    Mr R Rose
  • Thank you so much for your help and supportive guidance through what was a difficult time for me. You were in regular contact with me by phone which I greatly appreciated. You always kept me informed, up to date with progress and provided excellent advice. I would have no hesitation in using you again and recommending you to my friends.

    Mr P James
  • From the outset of first contacting Oakwood their professionalism in every aspect of the process was flawless and courteous. Customer service at the highest level. I had never experienced the event of going to court and this was made all the more easier by the utter trust in my case from the company personnel dealing with it, which in turn gave me the capability and confidence to face the ‘enemy’. I would recommend Oakwood to anyone in need of their excellent professionalism and customer service.

  • Ian provided straightforward and practical employment law advice to me and was of tremendous help during a stressful time. He is willing to go that extra mile for his clients and he is able to see “the bigger picture” and able to find solutions to complex legal issues. I highly recommend Ian and would certainly instruct him again, should the need arise

    Stephen C
  • I was first introduced to Ian when I required urgent advice on a very serious and unpleasant employment issue. The introduction was not what I wished, as my insurers had insisted that I use a solicitor of their choice rather than seek advice from the firm which I had previously used for all my private work. However, in spite of my unwillingness, Ian quickly won me over with a combination of professionalism, an ability to listen well and very sound advice. He is an excellent lawyer to work with, and is ideally suited to employment issues; he displays a sensible degree of controlled aggression allied to a very commercial approach to reaching a good settlement. He knows the law well and has the courage to apply that knowledge firmly to his client’s advantage. He also does as he says he will do – letters are drafted, schedules prepared and calls returned in a timely manner. In all, Ian is a pleasure to work with and inspires confidence at a time when his client is often under considerable personal and professional pressure. I have recommended Ian’s services to friends and colleagues and shall continue to do so.

    Former Company Secretary of a large PLC based in Leeds
  • I only had to tell Ian Abel something once, I realise that now – he has the ability to dissect all the facts out of a long and in my case repetitive story. He did this without making me feel silly, insignificant or overemotional. His professional but empathic manner was refreshing and encouraging. He gave detailed advice along with options, strength, self-worth and direction, in a time when I was too emotional and stressed to find any of them myself. He completely took the emotion out of the situation and made me concentrate on the facts. In doing this he gave me the strength to continue and see my dispute through. His knowledge and ability to guide you in the correct manner with constant support in and out of normal working hours was priceless to me. A true gentleman, an ardent listener but above all a top class solicitor. I without hesitation would urge anyone struggling in the workplace to trust in Ian Abel.

    Miss J Hornbuckle
  • The level of advice and help I have received from Anthony Fox has been outstanding. He has been the only person I have been dealing with and I spoke to him before I was actually dismissed. The advice I received about the procedures I should follow and what an employer is legally obliged to do would later prove to be vital in being able to make a claim and be successful with that claim. He has always been available to give me advice and explain all the legal jargon in terms that were very easy to understand. This has made the whole experience easy and stress free, he is a credit to Oakwood Solicitors and a true professional.

    Mr S
  • I was made redundant at the end of September and felt it was done in a rather underhand way so was interested to know if I had a claim against the Company. I had tried local Solicitors in the area but they weren’t interested or very expensive. I had seen the adverts on TV for accidents at work for no fee no win so thought I would go on Google to see if there were any Solicitors that would do the same thing for Employment claims and Oakwood Solicitors was the first one on the list with no win no fee. I contacted them straight away and told them about my redundancy and they were happy to take my claim on. They were so helpful and kept me informed through out my claim. I would recommend them to any of my friends and will use them again if I have need of a Solicitor as they were excellent.

    M Moran
  • I have worked with Richard Coulthard of Oakwood Solicitors with my case regarding my ex employer since January 2012 and would highly recommend them as the service I received was of a very high standard. Richard was always friendly and helpful as were the office staff and Barrister that I also met with. I would have no hesitation in recommending to anyone who requires legal help.

    Mrs L Conifey, Durham
  • I would like to thank everybody involved in this matter. Special thanks to Danielle Lightfoot for her understanding of my frustration. Thanks. Your service was first class.

    RTA Client
  • I found Emma Davison very easy to talk to and I wouldn’t hesitate to get in touch with her if I need advice through having an accident or anything that needs sorting. Thank her very much for her help.

    RTA Client
  • Dear Jessica Thompson. I don’t think I can thank you enough for the help in my work related stress claim. Technically I know you are doing your job,but it was so nice and reassuring especially with my first contact with you, to have someone I could talk to, someone who I could sense was with me and on my side with a sense of the appalling treatment I had received. With your help I could return to a more stress free life and new job knowing my case was still being pursued  without my life being taken over, as it had been since 2011, and all this help from my wife picking up the free Metro paper on the bus one morning. Your advert does work and if I or any of my friends are in need of any assistance, legally,in the future I can assure you that I or they will definitely contact you. If any local or national press are interested in my story I would love so much to entertain them into the despicable actions of my former employers. I will close by wishing you Jessica your family and all your work colleagues the very best for the future and if you are ever in or near Hexham please get in touch, I owe you a very large drink. Thanks again

    Mr S Kane
  • Mr Coulthard took to represent me in a case that was complicated but resulted in a favourable resolution.  Mr Coulthard  always acted on my behalf with no bias. I provided instructions and he responded in a timely manner. Mr Coulthard explained the law to me clearly and in concise fashion with no bias. His kindness and concern helped me in my recovery to which I’m very grateful.

    Stress Client
  • Thank you Jessica for your continued support, kindness and empathy throughout a very difficult time, which I will always remember with gratitude.  Your hard work, attention to detail and ability to collate relevant information from vast amounts of documentation is second to none; all completed in a timely manner.  You treated me with respect right from the start and never failed me throughout the whole process, continually impressing me.  I was kept up to date every step of the way in an efficient, professional, clear and courteous manner, with the added bonus of a caring, personal touch.  All culminating in a successful result and a substantial settlement.  You are a credit to Oakwood Solicitors and I wish you well.

    Miss L Carr
  • Given that I had never encountered this situation before I had a lot of questions about the procedure, etc resulting in numerous contracts with you. Even though this must have interrupted your workflow & thought pattern you gave the impression I was receiving your undivided, exclusive attention at all times. The guidance & support you provided was greatly appreciated during what was a troublesome & traumatic 8 months (from the submission of my claim to the verdict of the Remedy Hearing). Then when it came to my representation by Barrister at the hearings you had 4 contacts that were highly suitable, reasonably priced, for me to choose from. The one I picked did a first rate job & I could not have been in better hands. I would happily recommend you & your firm to anyone. Thanks so much again.

    Miss C Shirley
  • I would like to thank you for your knowledge, support and the manner in which you dealt with my claim as quickly as possible – knowing full well the other party works to their own time scales – I truly couldn’t have done it without you and would without hesitation recommend your services to others.

    Mr I Tagg
  • I would like to thank Katie Bell who did a really great job on my case. She kept me informed and really fought to get me the best deal. Thank you Katie.

    G Turley
  • What a fantastic result! Thank you so much for negotiation a fair settlement. I will recommend you to any friends who have had trouble with airlines.

    Mrs K Winslade
  • Thank you for representing us very successfully in the compensation claim for our delayed flight and the cheque £ 359.43 enclosed in your last letter. We will pass on your details to our family & friends if they find themselves in the same situation as us in future.

    Dr. V Antao
  • I approached Oakwood Solicitors at a very difficult and stressful time for me personally. My initial enquiry was handled by a very helpful, patient and pleasant lady over the phone, who took brief details. I then received a call from Crystal Bolton Employment Solicitor who I found to be non-judgemental, dedicated, truthful and friendly, using her expert knowledge of employment law to guide me. Nothing was too much trouble for her, including having to go over things several times when I was getting stressed. I was pleased with the support provided and the polite manner in which all my enquiries were handled and would use Oakwood Solicitors again.

    Ms C Groves
  • Hi John, Just wanted to say thank you for helping with my case and finally getting things moving along. I think you have been a great help and made it easy for me to understand and kept me informed. The cheque has arrived so thank you for all your hard work.

  • During my period of trauma I could rely on Oakwood Solicitors to fight my case for me. They were helpful, advisable and discussed what was going on with everything that was happening. Richard Coulthard was the solicitor that was fighting my case and he was brilliant. I can easily say that I trusted Richard with the case and he did a very good job in getting me compensation for my claim.  I would like to say thank you to Richard and Oakwood Solicitors for brilliant service, 10/10. If i were to ever need a solicitor I would contact Oakwood Solicitors without fail. Each time I spoke to Richard he was informative, kind and very professional; he earned my trust. I felt comfortable when leaving the claim in his hands and contacting the other side. As a whole, I can guarantee that Oakwood Solicitors are trustworthy, professional and comforting.

    Mr D W Mansell
  • I contacted Richard Coulthard at Oakwood Solicitors as I had been subjected to bullying and harassment at work, which resulted in sickness due to work related stress and ultimately my resignation. I found Mr Coulthard to be extremely professional, being both candid and approachable at all times – a true expert in a complex field of litigation. His knowledge and expertise secured me a most favourable outcome for which I am very grateful. Mrs CS  

    Mrs CS
  • Many thanks to Jessica Thompson and Oakwood Solicitors for taking my case and for the success that I have had. My case was dealt with professionally from beginning to end. It had been ten year of enduring the unfair treatment, harassment and bullying from the manager and team leader. When I saw the advertisement in the news paper I decided to call to see if you would take on my case and was very happy when you agreed to take it on. As a result of you taking my case things have changed at the work place, as the then manager has now been removed and the team leader has now been stopped form bullying, harassing and treating me unfairly. Thanks Oakwood Solicitors I could not have had the success without you taking on my case as I was not able to find the fees upfront. Things are much better now at work and I am now moving on with my life.

    Miss A Addison
  • During a very difficult time whilst being mistreated by my employer during my pregnancy and maternity leave, I came across contact details for Oakwood Solicitors. From the very first conversation with Ian Abel, I knew that I was in the hands of a professional, straight talking and highly knowledgable solicitor, and this gave me the confidence to take my case forward. Ian guided me through every step of the process, giving advice as required and was always extremely approachable and accessible, returning calls promptly and keeping me updated. The positive outcome that was achieved on my behalf by Ian of Oakwood Solicitors enabled me to move on from the ordeal, and I would highly recommend them for any employment matter. Thanks for your help and support

  • I have dealt with Crystal concerning employment issues and descrimination. She has offered me advice in a professional, yet easy to understand way. I have found her to be efficient when dealing with me by email or over the telephone and I found her to be friendly. I would recommend Oakwood Solicitors for employment advice and guidance and definitely would recommend Crystal personally

  • We recently contacted your solicitors regarding a potential no win no fee claim against our former employers. It was something we have never done before. We had no idea what to expect, how long it would take or even if the claim was worth pursuing. Crystal was upfront and explained everything to us, sometimes happily going over the same thing more than once! Her replies and correspondence were always prompt, polite and clear. We are extremely happy with the way that Crystal dealt with our claim and would happily recommend her services, especially to anyone unsure of the way the legal system works. Kind Regards Karen Lewis

  • A few months ago, I discovered Oakwood Solicitors at a critical juncture of my career.  My work environment was negatively impacting my health and I needed urgent, concise, honest advice regarding my legal position. A member of the Employment team called me the same day and discussed my workplace problems at length.  The solicitors at Michawel Lewin were very approachable, empathetic, personable, genuine to speak with and in an instant, I felt relaxed and confident of a solution.  After going through the relevant documentation, Oakwood Solicitors provided me with all my options to address the situation.  I decided on one of those options and this became the turning point for my career resulting in resolution and an exciting new role. My sincere thanks to the team who was there for me during that awful time, was backing me and was 100% reliable.  Should my family or friends need any legal advice, I can only suggest Oakwood Solicitors as a true professional law firm who will provide a result and solution.  Thank You.

  • I was dismissed from my job several months ago, and needed some impartial advice on the process that had led to my dismissal and to enquire if there was anything legally I could do as I knew the process of dismissal was not carried out correctly. I consulted Oakwood Solicitors and received a call from the Employment team and they were professional, approachable, knowledgeable, and had a warm and caring attitude. Oakwood Solicitors agreed to take on my case and believed from the information that I had provided we would win my case against my unfair dismissal. The solicitors had a knack of taking the legal language and turning it into a language I could understand. Their knowledge of employment law, professionalism and reassurance, encouraged me to carry on pursuing my case and believing. I am pleased to say that we won the case, and would like to thank Oakwood Solicitors for their tireless effort and support in fighting this case on my behalf.

  • I contacted Oakwood Solicitors when I was unfairly made redundant. The company agreed to take on what I thought was a relatively straight forward claim against my previous employers. They immediately started to deal with my claim but when all the information was in their possession it appeared my claim wasn’t as clear cut as I had thought. The Employment team continued to fight my corner and a settlement was swiftly agreed without the need to go to tribunal. I would not hesitate to recommend Oakwood Solicitors, they take their clients situations very seriously and do their utmost to achieve the best possible outcome for their clients. Thank you so much for everything you have done for me. Thank you once again for everything you have done.

  • I would like to say thank you to you for taking on my case for unfair dismissal and winning. The help and advice I received from you was fantastic. I was very pleased on how quickly and efficiently you worked on my case. The communication and updates on the case were brilliant from the employment team and I always felt they had my best interests at heart. I will definitely be recommending your company to my family and friends and would like you to put this email on your website for other people to read so they can see what a great job you do. A big thank you for everything you did for me and my case.

  • I contacted Oakwood solicitors on a no win no fee basis, looking for advice regarding an unfair dismissal from my former employer. I gave my details over the phone and within a few days I was contacted. Oakwood Solicitors understood exactly what my requirements were and without delay started the legal process. They were able to explain all the technical jargon in a language that was easily understood. All emails were replied promptly, without delay, with all questions answered extensively. The advice received was professional and ALWAYS in my best interest. It was nice to have someone on my side during a time that proved to be very difficult and stressful, to say the least. The outcome achieved exceeded my expectations and I would without any hesitation recommend Oakwood to any person finding themselves in my unfortunate position

  • May I thank Oakwood Solicitors who went above and beyond in their duties in helping me achieve the best possible outcome regarding my settlement. Very approachable and kept me up to speed throughout. Well done!

    John N, Manchester
  • From the outset of my case I was very impressed with the manner and professionalism I was dealt with, and any questions I had were always answered promptly and thoroughly. I would certainly recommend Oakwood to anyone who feels they have a complaint against their employer, especially when the employer is large organisation that ordinarily you would presume would be too big to fight, and I won! I would also like to add my thanks to Jessica Thompson who has had to deal with my many many questions but has always remained professional throughout.

  • I really am truly grateful for your help and extreme professionalism during the course of the claim and wish you all the best for the future. You (Jessica Thompson) are a massive asset to your company and would certainly recommend you to to anyone in the future.

    Ms Davenport, Hull
  • I found myself in an uncomfortable situation with my employer, a big corporate financial giant, which resulted in potential grounds for sustained discrimination. From the moment I contacted Oakwood Solicitors, I was heard and represented superbly and I quickly felt alleviated from the stress of the situation I found myself in. The Employment team listened to my concerns and communicated promptly with empathy and a caring attitude, whilst determined the facts. Throughout the entire process, I was kept well informed, ensuring I understood all the facts of the case completely A totally satisfactory settlement was reached in an amazingly short space of time, impressive work!  I would, without hesitation, recommend Oakwood Solicitors.
