Ipek Tugcu she was so helpful and very understanding in a very difficult time.
Many thanks Alex. You have been a star. Certainly made the correct choice in contacting you. Can’t thank you enough.
I cannot express my gratitude to you both for all your hard work over the past 3 years, I’m glad I found an amazing team able to take on my case and help me win with an outcome I am over the moon with.
I approached BBK just after my Armed Forces Compensation Scheme claim had been refused at tribunal. My case was far too complex for me to prove negligence on my own, even with the help of forces charities.
From the outset it was clear that my claim would take time, compounded by the fact I was still and am currently still serving, also still receiving medical treatment. I knew the treatment I received while in Afghanistan for a newly presented illness was negligible and BBK took the case on and from there they handled my case brilliantly.
I knew I was in good hands. This is not a firm that overloads its staff. The team I was dealing with were always on hand for updates and seemed genuinely concerned when treatment wasn’t working for me or I was having a bad time and compassion goes a long way in my book. They were always professional but always understanding and adaptable to my needs.
I quickly learnt that this is a firm that likes to get things done so we’re on my wavelength. It’s key to keep things moving so swift responses to their questions and keeping them updated at all times was important to me as it makes their job easier being updated along the way rather than chasing people. Claims can be time critical so it’s key to stay on top of it.
Making a claim against the MoD can be a daunting prospect, especially for younger soldiers who may feel they will get in trouble for doing so. This is not something to worry about, especially when dealing with one of the top firms in this sector.
The process took time but ultimately was made much easier by the team being so attentive and proactive and would recommend BBK highly to anybody and in fact have on a few occasions.
You were brilliant from day one and I could not have had anyone better fighting my corner. My experiences through this process have really restored my faith in the legal process.
“Having developed numerous health problems following a work place accident and then being unceremoniously dismissed on capability grounds whilst still receiving treatment for my injuries, I contacted Bolt Burden Kemp. The company had been recommended to me and I was immediately impressed with all the professional advice and help that I received. My Solicitor, Ben Pepper, and his assistant, Tracy Smith, were always extremely helpful and considerate during this difficult time, both helping me to navigate the process of gathering all the necessary evidence and drafting all the legal paperwork towards developing the strongest case possible. They helped arrange invaluable appointments with numerous medical professionals, consistently updated me during what can feel like a daunting process and always provided me with conscientious and essential legal advice. I am extremely grateful for all their help towards seeking financial support for my future treatment and hopeful recovery.”
‘Initially I was wary of getting involved in litigation. I’d heard it could take years and I worried it would rake up painful memories for my family and I; However, Flora, our main contact at Bolt Burdon and Kemp was clear, efficient and genuine from the beginning. Bringing this case against the medical team responsible gave us a more positive way of dealing with this and will now help us make a life for our child. I would recommend Bolt Burdon Kemp and particularly Flora without hesitation.
Niamh went above and beyond to keep me informed, calling me abroad, accommodating my turbulent lifestyle, Niamh was fantastic, she exceeded my expectations.
Serving as a Reservist I was injured due to the collapse of a ladder, while working for my unit. Bolt Burdon Kemp came highly recommended by a friend and lived up to that recommendation!! From start to finish, Kate Roos was a pleasure to deal with, putting up with my questions and providing me with frequent updates. She was always realistic and reigned in my enthusiasm, but was firmly on my side during the negotiations!!! I had never considered litigation before and would wholeheartedly recommend Bolt Burdon Kemp to my service colleagues.
Thank you for all you do. You have gone beyond what I feel you should do to make it alright for us and I thank you for that.
I have no hesitation in recommending Bolt Burdon Kemp as the legal firm any serving or veteran service personnel should contact in the event that they may need to take legal action against the MOD. From initial contact, to my case being resolved almost 5 years later, every person I have dealt with at the firm, from reception staff to partner level, have been professional, courteous and above all respectful and understanding with all aspects relating to my case.
On a more personal note, I wanted to express to you my deepest and warmest thank you for what has been an exceptional outcome and unwavering job well done. It is always a pleasure to work with and align with individuals that hold a similar set of values and determination to see something through. Your support and mentorship over the past years has been second to none and demonstrates a morale justice that extends beyond business. I would also like to forward that sentiment to your team who have supported you and I throughout.
Marlon has been really compassionate and understanding and has at all times taken my feelings into consideration. He has been an excellent communicator.
I would like to thank everyone at BBK for everything that you have done for me…..in particular Siobhan, Selina and Jonathan. While money can never erase what happened it does go some way to bringing some kind of closure and recognition from the school of what happened. Thank you all so much.
“Zahra surpassed every expectation I have ever had and is truly a credit to your firm. Her work ethic and dedication has been exceptional.”
“This whole experience has had an overall good effect of closure, allowing me to proceed with the rest of my life without this skeleton in the cupboard affecting my life in so many ways. Emily was particularly understanding in helping and guiding me through very painful emotional trauma for me. Always making sure I knew that I could indeed call her at any time, should I need help support and guidance. I really did think that this case would be thrown out, thus affirming that I really didn’t matter but that hasn’t been the case, and I thank all of you for that. I have nothing but praise for Bolt Burdon Kemp.”
“Both my mum and I want to thank you for your professionalism and dedication. Despite the difficult circumstances of going through a claim, I felt reassured and supported the whole way. Thank you for also being a pleasure to work with!”
“Siobhan, just thought I would say hi and show you something I am attaching a photo of my little family with our own little house, I’ve lost 8 1/2 stone and things are finally amazing. I couldn’t have achieved any of this without your help and I will always be grateful. Thank you so much again.”
You always dealt with everything with sensitivity and made an unpleasant period of recollection much more bearable. I always felt confident that you were doing your absolute best and pushing for the best possible outcome for me.
I was put in touch with Zara Awaiz-Bilal and immediately understood how caring, empathetic and professional she was in her job nothing was too much trouble for her, she even contacted me when she was away in Scotland on holiday as I had a question.
