Client Feedback:


Guy was instructed after the death of my father in 2012 due to a misdiagnosis of cancer. It was a distressing time for all of the family but the case was handled sympathetically and informatively taking away a lot of the stress. Guy met my mother and treated her very compassionately and explained everything in simple terms. He managed to win damages for my mother. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the firm. Once again, thanks to everyone at the practice, especially you.


I would like to emphasise that Guy’s professionalism was of the utmost throughout the entire time my family and I worked with him. Emails were always responded to promptly. Guy worked so hard to push the Defendants towards reaching a suitable outcome. We would recommend Guy to anyone needing help with a civil claim, not only is he professional, hard working and determined to do the best for his clients, he has a way of making everything feel like it will be ok.


I was very happy and very impressed for all your help with my case. Guy applied great skill fighting the cause.

Guy is passionate about improving standards of care within the NHS and has and continues to “blog” widely on healthcare topics (see links below). Outside of work he enjoys cycling and classic cars.
