“As a very satisfied returning client to the practice we had no hesitation but to consult Wadsworths again. Mike Wadsworth did an excellent job with our Wills and Lasting Powers of Attorney so when we had an Employment contract issue they were our first call. Friendly, approachable, thorough and professional, Hannah Halden dealt with our issue quickly and effectively to our total satisfaction. Fees are sensible too, always a bonus! From reception to solicitor they are so easy to deal with. Finally, we mention Sarah-Jayne Bucknall, trainee Solicitor, who took our first phone call. Great service. Thanks to all at Shirley office.”

Highly professional , supportive and positive assistance with employment law request

I approached Wadsworths solicitors requesting advice and assistance regarding a matter of employment law, where I believed that i was not being treated in a fair and just manner. I had a meeting with Hannah Halden, an employment lawyer within this firm. She was extremely thorough and patient, listening and obtaining all relevant information in a very professional, supportive and empathetic manner. Hannah then wrote a detailed yet succinct letter to the company with whom I was in conflict. Subsequently, all the issues were resolved to my satisfaction, and it is my belief that the involvement of Wadsworths played no small part in the ultimate resolution to my case. Excellent service from start to finish and great value for money in my opinion.”

“From day one Wadsworth’s solicitors have been first class in our dealings with them. A special mention should go to Farina Saddique for the splendid work she has put in on our behalf. Thank you to all that have been involved in our case.”

“What an outstanding Solicitor Farina is along with her team Molly & Sophie-Ann. Anyone in need of a Litigation Lawyer (in my case contesting a Will) then I can’t praise and highly recommend Farina enough, she’s extremely bright, very professional and gave me so much confidence and belief, always keeping me up to speed with developments. I walked out of Wadsworth in a much better position than when I walked in all thanks to Farina and her amazing team. Special thanks to Sophie-Ann who always returned calls/emails, communication was very good. I’d have no hesitation in using Wadsworth (Farina) again and would highly recommend her to others.”
