It has been a real pleasure to deal with you and your team throughout this long journey and am pleased that it has finally been completed. I would not hesitate to deal with Royds Withy King again in the future.

I make it my priority to get to grips with the particular needs of each client. My aim is to give practical advice at every stage, guiding them through what is understandably an anxious and frustrating time. Clients need someone to champion their cause; for example, it’s rewarding to secure payment for the client’s medical treatment from the opposing side. Without it they might not get any medical treatment and it can make all the difference.
