Testimonials

"It is always a pleasure to deal with Yvonne and her team at SME, they have a way of cutting through the broader points and addressing the finer detail which is refreshing. A very results driven team that keep one informed thus making the experience a lot less stressful. I would highly recommend SME for both business and personal legal solutions"

“Ian offered a great service during the short time he dealt with my divorce.  He was prompt in responding to my queries and questions and explained things clearly to me every time.  I felt comfortable dealing with Ian face to face and over phone and email.  I would recommend him to others in the future”

Mrs L, Worcester

“To finalise …it’s been a painful 10 months, a learning curve where a better understanding of what is deemed fair. You’ve taken time to understand my position and I consider the work you have done for me as being the best possible given my circumstances. It is difficult not to get bitter and twisted and with your help I’ve managed (almost!) to see things more clearly…”

Mr N, Worcester

 

"I used SME solicitors through strong recommendation from professional friends that are in the property business and SME have always been my parents solicitors – I was not disappointed.

 I had what I thought was going to be a difficult move, my chain had 4 properties in it, me being the end property. I also had another property that had to be sold before I could move on in my chain, it was all happening at the same time. Elizabeth Meddings was the solicitor dealing with both of my property chains, she was brilliant!
We had our up’s and down’s in the whole process but due to her very professional approach, always being on hand to speak to and answering emails straight away! She made it happen, all with very little stress for me. It is all down to Liz for all the reasons above.

I would not hesitate to recommend SME solicitors and their services to anyone."

Mr B, Tewksbury

Mr Davies

 

“You did a sterling job for us with the house – thank you for everything. I type this from the (grandly named, but very small) office – an achievement in itself! If I could find someone as reliable and conscientious to help me with the mountain of DIY jobs, then I would be a happy man…..”

Mrs L, Worcester

"I have no hesitation in giving a testimonial to your firm and you in particular. As a family company owner I was faced with a Managing Director that thought he could arrange an MBO by taking money out of the company for his private benefit thus virtually bankrupting the business and I guess, if he had not been found out, would have offered to buy the business to save the day for next to nothing. Fortunately I found out what was going on and I was given Guy Salter’s name as an expert on  employment law. Not only did he give first class advise but he also supported myself and my team through what was a very challenging and worrying time and from virtually the first meeting, when he was shown the evidence of some of what was happening, he took control and assured me that he would handle everything in conjunction with my accountants.

This case took nearly 12 months to come to Court and get a successful conclusion with recovery of most of the monies but the stress was greatly reduced by Guy’s professionalism, support and yes, good humour when required.

If any employer has an employment problem, however big or small, I cannot think of any other firm of solicitors, and particularly Guy as a partner, that I would recommend to advise and see you through it."

 

Mr B, Worcester

"A recommendation took me to SME and despite my low morale and thoughts of giving up, I was persuaded to meet with their employment lawyer.

When Guy walked in, I was initially desperately embarrassed as we had been at school together and this was not the situation one wishes to have when one is reintroduced to a former classmate. However, my embarrassment quickly disappeared as Guy treated me with professionalism, empathy as well as honesty and determination.  He is someone you want on your side and would not wish to be facing in a legal battle.

Guy was realistic at all times and made no promises he could not keep. He reassured me when I had bleak moments and his attitude instilled me with confidence not only in his ability but in myself. Needless to say Guy was successful for me and I do feel indebted to him for his support which allowed me to regain some of my self esteem

My only regret is that I had not contacted SME at the start of my dispute with my former employer. I have little doubt that had I done so the dispute would have been resolved in a timely fashion and without such a harrowing impact on my life.

I would recommend anyone contemplating legal action with regard to any employment case should contact Guy Salter at SME for a professional, reliable, honest and human approach."

Mrs H Worcester

"I have enjoyed working with Guy as he has carefully steered us through the minefield of employment legislation.  He provides thoughtful, pragmatic and helpful advice with a commercial view.  I would not hesitate to recommend him to any other company for employment advice."

Mr C, Newport

"I had all but given up hope of pursuing my unfair dismissal case until I was introduced to Guy Salter from SME.  Guy has been a real inspiration and has handled my case with great sensitivity, professionalism, perception and deliberation.  I had the benefit of support from Lisa and an incredible Counsel too, thanks to Guy, and it was an amazing team effort that succeeded in securing a positive outcome for me.  Facing a legal system for the first time can be very daunting, but with the support of Guy and his team and their confident and industrious approach to pursuing my case, it certainly lessened the burden and my anxieties.  My sincere thanks and appreciation to you all."

Lynn from Warwickshire

"We are so pleased that we contacted Stallard March & Edwards and in particular Elizabeth Korner and are delighted with everything that has been undertaken on our behalf. An essential requirement for the family at a difficult time is trust; knowing that you are working with people who understand your needs and circumstances and who can deliver in sympathetic and professional manner. Elizabeth and Stallard March & Edwards offered us just that.  Thank you."

Mr S, Worcester

"Thanks for the great service I've received. As the man from Honda says, it's nice when things just work. I'll be back in touch next time I buy a house."

Matt, Worcester

"Thank you for all the excellent sound advice throughout the last two years. From day one your professional knowledge and support has been outstanding."

Mr H, Worcester

“The only ray of light in this nightmare has been meeting you. Thank you for all your guidance and wonderful work. Please say thank you to your secretary and Mr Stirzaker as well.”
