Jessica's testimonial

  • 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
  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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
