  • I lost my son in the most devastating way in a road traffic accident.  He was 16 years old.  I got in touch with Ben Pepper at Bolt Burton Kemp.  From the first conversation with Ben I felt so comfortable.  He guided me through every step of the civil claim.  I was never left wondering what was going on.  He also offered me support through my grief, listening to my sadness on the phone.  I cannot thank Ben and the whole team at Bolt Burton Kemp enough for their hard work and constant determination to resolve my claim.  Thank you to you all.  I would highly recommend them.  Thank you again.
