    Mr H – Mesothelioma Client
  • I should like to thank you for your excellent service throughout the progress of my claim; you have been very personable and professional. More specifically, you very quickly got to grips with the detail of my accident, which allowed you to form a very accurate opinion of the eventual outcome. I appreciated not only your advice, but also your willingness to be guided by my objectives. The fact that the defendant made an offer so quickly, and at a level you had intimated to be a reasonable expectation at the outset, is testament to your expertise. Finally, your pleasant manner made the whole process painless and even enjoyable!

    Mr A, Cheshire
  • Poole Alcock were the first solicitors I contacted when I was looking around and Anna Burns was the first person I spoke to. As soon as I had that initial contact with Anna I knew I had made th right choice. Anna’s calm, reassuring manner instantly put me at ease and she was just amazing throughout ther whole process. Anna met my late father on two occasions and dad was very impressed by her professionalism and friendly nature and it took a lot to impress dad!

    Thank you Anna for everything you did for us!

  • I would like to thank you most sincerely for the way you have sensitively handled every aspect of my case, particularly in light of the difficulty I encountered for the first few months.

    Kathryn Leonard
  • Poole Alcock were my first choice of solicitors and throughout my claim from start to finish Anna Burns was so supportive to me. She showed me a great deal of empathy due to the nature of my claim. I feel we built an excellent professional relationship and Anna was always available to speak to if I needed to ask any questions. On the rare occasions that I could not reach Anna, all of the supporting staff at Poole Alcock were equally supportive and helpful. The claim ran as smooth and as stress free as it possibly could and I was always well informed of any changes or upcoming appointments. I would highly recommend Poole Alcock.

    Thank you for everything Anna. I literally could not have got through all of this without you and all your support.

  • A very big thank you and my appreciation and best wishes for all your hard work and dedication in my case for compensation.
