  • Olivia definitely gave me exceptional service – the whole thing was handled as efficiently as it could be.  I am really happy with service, communication was excellent.  I also want to mention Susan Slattery – she was really helpful and kept me informed during the costs process.

    W.G.

  • After receiving the compensation I decided that because the trauma as a child had such a large impact on my life I decided to use the money to change my life again, I left a 30 year career in the printing industry and used the money to go back to college and retrain to become qualified within the financial industry and that’s just what I’ve done. With the help and support from your company, in particular Olivia, who was just incredible at every stage, I’ve managed to take my life on a completely different path and I can’t thank you all enough. You were all so compassionate and handled my case with respect and consideration and exceeded my expectations on every level. Please don’t ever underestimate the difference you can make to people’s lives by doing what you all do, keep support people like myself because you really can help victims put their life back together, and for that, I shall always be eternally grateful.
