Settlement Agreement Shirley
Settlement Agreement

“I went to Wadsworths Solicitors desperate for help in dispute.  After a long time trying to get my money back directly and then trying to dispute it through my bank, everything failed so I saw no choice but to get a solicitor involved and I’m so glad I did. Hannah Halden dealt with the claim and she was amazing, she proved them wrong and managed to get all my money back to me.

I’m so thankful to Hannah and Princee for their help.  They got me out of a really dark place and I’m so grateful to them – worth every penny I spent. I went to Wadsworths because they have a brilliant reputation and I wasn’t disappointed. I highly recommend Wadsworths Solicitors and I highly recommend Hannah Halden for consumers rights she smashed it! Thank you so much again!”, March 2024

“I recently worked with the Wadsworths team to finalise a Settlement Agreement, and I am pleased to say it was a smooth and efficient process. The team promptly confirmed the receipt of my employer’s signed Agreement and assured me of the binding nature of our agreement.

I want to express my gratitude for the professional and timely manner in which my case was handled. The entire team, especially Hannah Halden and Princee Patel, demonstrated a commitment to excellence, ensuring that all aspects of the Agreement were addressed with precision. I highly recommend their services and appreciate the seamless resolution they provided.

Thank you once again for your outstanding service.” and TrustPilot December 2023
