“Your service and expertise on dealing with my case was exceptional. You were always on the end of the phone, supporting me and giving me updates regularly, which made me feel reassured and confident, that I was in safe hands. Thanks for your 5* service and bringing a successful outcome to my case. Your help was really much appreciated.” – Georgina Jacobs
“Straight away from the first time we spoke you were so reassuring that everything would be ok. Your help and support was such a strength through this time. I will be recommending you and Farleys to all my friends and family!” – Ms K
“Kelly secured the funding for my son’s Inquest, which meant I could concentrate on the case. The help we had from our legal team was second to none.” – Mr S
“I just want to extend my warmest thank you to [Kelly and the team] for your help over the past few years. This has been a long and difficult journey for my family and I, and in Farley’s I’ve had people to trust with my experiences. I realise in latter stages, I’ve perhaps been ‘on a mission’ but I appreciate none of this could have been achieved without your professionalism and help.” – Ms R
“Not only did we find Kelly an exceptionally competent solicitor. At all times when dealing with us on the phone or face to face, she was caring, showing concern for our family and our well being, considerate of our needs and compassionate. While no one would ever want to be faced with the needless loss of a child, we consider ourselves very forutnate indeed that we found Farleys to guide us through the process.” – Mr J
