  • Bethany was always available to talk to me.  She had great communication and gave me peace of mind.  BBK made the process really painless and easy.  I couldn’t fault the service, it was excellent.


  • Beth was superb, very helpful and professional.  I couldn’t fault the service I received from her.


  • Bethany was absolutely phenomenal, I cannot speak more highly of her.  On the day of the settlement hearing she just took charge, only using the barrister if she needed backup.  She really impressed me that day.  Her negotiation skills were fantastic and she communicated everything to me at all times.  At no point did I ever feel that my trust in her was misplaced.  I would not hesitate to recommend the firm, this experience has given me more clearance in my head than the criminal trial ever did.

  • Thank you very much Bethany.  I'm extremely pleased it's now all over and I can move on with my life and soon be able to pay for some cognitive behavioural therapy...... I'm very very greatful to you.  You are a credit to your profession.  Thank you for your time, work and the effort you have put into my case.  It is in my opinion a fantastic result. I wish you nothing but success in your future and all that you do for victims of child sexual abuse.  We need people like you to fight when we can't.  Not all heroes wear capes...... You have just helped give my wife her husband back and my children there father.


  • Beth and Susan [Slattery] were amazing.  They were both really sympathetic in their dealings with me which was much appreciated.  I felt that the service was excellent, they kept me informed throughout.

  • This is the end of a 30 year narrative and I want to thank you properly.  I really appreciate all your hard work and your patience and your kindness.  I couldn’t have asked for a better person to lead me through the process and I am of course indebted to you for helping me back onto my feet after all these years and giving me my life back.  So thank you, thank you, thank you.
