"I needed a local solicitor at very short notice to look into an employment matter for me. I knew of Bennett Oakley through my work.

I was lucky enough to be able to use the services of Marc Hartnell for employment law advice. Marc was amiable, courteous, informative and took a stressful situation out of my hands and resolved it quickly and efficiently to my benefit.

I would not hesitate to recommend their services, in particular Marc Hartnell, in fact I already have twice since last month to my colleagues and friends." - GW
