Our client testimonials

“Over the festive period a member of my family needed swift and critical employment advice. From the moment I made contact with SE and my phone call was transferred to Angela I felt in safe hands… Angela then organised at very short notice a telephone call meeting with Philomena… At the phone call meeting Philomena was an absolute star. Philomena listened and made my family member feel at ease during what is a very turbulent situation. Philomena explored lots of avenues and options, was considerate, calm, professional and empathetic. Through Philomena’s guidance and thoughtful phrasing it helped my family member see clear options… Having met and worked with many lawyers I was extremely impressed with Philomena and more importantly Philomena was able to help my family member to get to a point where she could think more clearly and take action. Philomena made her self available at very short notice. Thank you to both these wonderful individuals.”
