“Going through a workplace dispute was such a daunting and emotional time for me. When I contacted Etheringtons Solicitors I felt like some of the burden immediately lifted. The solicitor was up to date with current legislation and sympathetic in her dealings with me. It was important for me not to feel judged. I felt at ease that my outcome was important. You returned my calls promptly and explained everything in basic terms. People often say solicitors aren’t worth the expense but I found their fees were very reasonable and the resolution achieved for me far outweighed the expense. I’m glad I used an expert rather than living with the thought of what may have been I would highly recommend anyone contacting Etheringtons Solicitors to assist with any workplace issues.”
