Review from Redundancy client for Sally Hubbard, Managing Director, Specialist Employment Solicitor

I was put at risk of redundancy and needed advice on process and current legislation.

Sally helped me initially via a free telephone consultation. Her advice was professional yet friendly and reassuring and covered all the areas I needed to know about the situation I had found myself in. She covered off all the different areas of employment legislation that I needed to be aware of as I entered my “At Risk” consultation period with my employers. She put my mind at rest and was very useful to be able to speak to a legal expert at short notice and without cost for that initial advice. My confidence in Sally was such that I went on to instruct her to act on my behalf during the final stages of the redundancy process and completion of my Settlement Agreement.

Sally’s help meant I was able to speak to my employers with confidence about the process and the end result was very satisfactory”.

Review from Employment Tribunal client for Sophie Goodwill, Director, Specialist Employment Solicitor

“I had been in long term employment with the same company for over 24 years. Another Management team came in and decided the company needed a shake up even though it was running extremely well. Straight away their mission was move on long term employees earning too much money and by changing their job roles and also trying to change their contracts at work. As a result of this, many of the long-term staff sadly did leave.

I tried my hardest to be happy and enjoy my job, but after constant harassment from the new management team, I decided for the sake of my health I could not do this anymore as I was taking my moods home and it was affecting my family’s life.

Upon leaving, I consulted a lawyer in which I spent an awful lot of money, but sadly this was my biggest mistake as I should have done some homework in employing a solicitor who specialises in Employment Law. I was recommended Sophie Goodwill. I started off with a Fixed Fee Consultation and passed on all my previous paperwork I had collated with previous solicitor.

I was so surprised to hear from Sophie a few days later saying that she thought I had a very strong case. Sophie was professional and more than anything was on the ball. I did need to do further work from my end to help Sophie with the case and I was so happy because this time I felt confident we would have a result at the end of it.

Sophie has kept in touch throughout this difficult ordeal, and finally we had some great news just a few days ago. My former employer’s lawyer has been in touch with Sophie and asked if we could settle out of court.

I owe an awful lot to Sophie. This has been my bittersweet case. Bitter because if I had Sophie fighting my corner from the off, it would have saved me so much money. The sweet part of it is that Sophie won my legal battle in half the time and that we managed to win an out of court settlement …………….. Thank You Sophie.

Sophie made me feel there was something to fight for and gave me and my family some self-belief. I was very happy with the outcome”.

Review from Disciplinary Procedure client for Lucy Stones, Associate, Specialist Employment Solicitor

“Accusations regarding my conduct had been made to my employer by colleagues. My employers were intent upon upholding the allegations rather than finding against them.

Lucy gave clear, honest, and practical advice throughout. She clearly explained the options available to me. Always professional but friendly and supportive throughout. She did exactly what she said she would do, often ahead of schedule. I would highly recommend Lucy. My experience was highly unpleasant and having the support of Lucy made it bearable.

The outcome was better than expected. Unfortunately returning to work for my employers was probably not the best plan.

I cannot think of anything more I either expected or would have wanted”.

Review from Withheld Wages client for Kathryn Bolton, Associate, Specialist Employment Solicitor

“My employer was unlawfully deducting wages.

Kathryn took the time to listen to all of the complicated issues. She understood immediately what was going on and was able to give me excellent guidance and advice. I am very pleased with the outcome.

Kathryn was excellent in how she dealt my case. She took care and attention to the details and did not labour every conversation about her costs which I really appreciated”.

Review from Ill Health Retirement client for Sally Hubbard, Managing Director, Specialist Employment Solicitor

“I had to leave work on medical grounds.  Sally listened and was brilliant in her approach and advice at a time I was really upset and was so confused as to what to do. She made me feel at ease and helped me in a very difficult situation for me.

My advice was good. The speed in which I was contacted was amazing, Well done to Sally and her team for an excellent job and guidance”.

Review from Settlement Agreement client for Sophie Goodwill, Director, Specialist Employment Solicitor

I had to negotiate a settlement agreement to terminate my employment. Sophie gave clear and efficient advice on the settlement agreement after explaining its terms thoroughly. Sophie helped negotiating the pay-out successfully.

Everything was dealt with very quickly and efficiently”.

Review from Redundancy client for Lucy Stones, Associate, Specialist Employment Solicitor

“After 7.5 years in a senior position as Head of Business Consultancy I was made redundant. The outcome of the process had in my view been pre-determined and my treatment by the business was offhand, dismissive and unfair.

Lucy gave clear, honest, and practical advice at all stages of the process. She was extremely helpful in setting out the options available to me and was clear about the up and down sides of each. She was available when I needed to speak to her and engaged a professional but friendly and supportive tone throughout. She was easy to work with and extremely good at doing what she said she would do, when she said she would do it, which helped immensely when working through this really unpleasant set of circumstances. I highly recommend Lucy.

I have achieved the outcome I was hoping for, in full and with bells”.

Review from Settlement Agreement client for Kathryn Bolton, Associate, Specialist Employment Solicitor

“Kathryn listened carefully to my request for assistance with regard to a settlement agreement for termination of contract; explained carefully the legal aspects of the situation; explained what options I had; completed the legal requirements and documentation, and dealt directly with my employer to ensure the settlement agreement was completed as soon as possible.

I could not have wished for a better service”.

Review from Bullying and Harassment client for Sally Hubbard, Managing Director, Specialist Employment Solicitor

“I believed I was being bullied at work and sought advice. Sally confirmed that indeed I had grounds to believe it, given my employers’ actions. Sally advised on what action I could take, and likely outcome.

The outcome was more than I had expected. Also, I felt relief and justified in my actions.

Sally was amazing with her advice and support”.

Review from Sexual Harassment and Sex Discrimination client for Sophie Goodwill, Director, Specialist Employment Solicitor

“Sophie is professional and a good person. I felt support from first time and I got all answers to my questions. She helped me to understand everything step by step. I trusted her 100%. Sophie did amazing job for me. Highly recommend. Thank You Sophie

The outcome was more than I thought”.

Review from Disciplinary Procedure/Settlement Agreement client for Kathryn Bolton, Associate, Specialist Employment Solicitor

“Realistic and factual advice regarding preparation for disciplinary meeting and then settlement agreement.

Overall, I felt l could trust Kathryn, and had no understanding or expectations, but do feel that she negotiated beyond what I thought was possible”.

Review from Employment Tribunal client for Sally Hubbard, Managing Director, Specialist Employment Solicitor

“I had lost my employment tribunal case and I was looking for advice about the next steps I should take.

Sally provided advice relevant to my case. She was very professional, helpful, and sympathetic. She listened to what I had to say and provided her advice. I wish I had contacted Sally before I initiated tribunal proceedings, I may have had a different outcome”.

Review from Redundancy client for Sophie Goodwill, Director, Specialist Employment Solicitor

“I was unfairly made redundant. Sophie advised of where I stood, legally, in terms of my position.

Although I didn’t get the outcome I wanted, this was not due any shortfalls from Lincs Law. I was advised clearly from day one of the risks, and most importantly to me, as I had just been made redundant, where I stood in terms of costs, and costs for ‘next steps’. Very professional. Would not hesitate to recommend to anyone that requires employment advice.

Everything was very clear, every step of the way, throughout”.

Review from Settlement Agreement client for Lucy Stones, Associate, Specialist Employment Solicitor

“I required legal advice on a settlement agreement and in addition asked Lucy to negotiate the financial terms of the settlement agreement on my behalf.

Lucy provided excellent legal advice on the draft settlement my employer provided. We reviewed each clause of the agreement and Lucy proposed changes that were in my best interests, the majority of which my employer accepted. Lucy also carried out the negotiation of the financial terms within the settlement agreement. Lucy provided clear advice on the various options open to me and drafted responses and counter proposals to my employer that were vital in reaching a satisfactory outcome.

The settlement agreement was finalised and the financial settlement was more than I would have received without Lucy’s advice and support.

I was very happy with the advice and support I received from Lucy, particularly in the financial negotiation with my employer”.

Review from Settlement Agreement client for Kathryn Bolton, Associate, Specialist Employment Solicitor

“I was offered a Settlement Agreement by my employer which I knew nothing about so needed some professional advice.

Kathryn explained clearly what a Settlement Agreement was and offered excellent advice on the options open to me. I ended up signing the agreement with a better offer than I received originally.

Kathryn provided a great service at a very difficult time for me”.

Review from Ill Health Retirement client for Sally Hubbard, Managing Director, Specialist Employment Solicitor

“Sally advised me on how to proceed with an Appeal. Her knowledge of Employment Law was fantastic and she gave me the information I required for my Appeal. The service I received was excellent”.

Review from Settlement Agreement client for Sophie Goodwill, Director, Specialist Employment Solicitor

“Sophie was very thorough and kept the legal jargon to the minimum, helping me understand my rights and the details of my Settlement Agreement.  With Sophie’s professional advice I was able to quickly work through the Agreement with my employer and achieve the desired outcome.

It was a pleasure dealing with Sophie and I feel the service and advice offered was as close to perfect as possible to achieve – I can offer no areas for improvement – well done Sophie and LincsLaw!”

Review from Unlawful Deduction From Wages client for Kathryn Bolton, Associate, Specialist Employment Solicitor

“Kathryn provided options of potential claims and advice. Helped with negotiations during the Early Conciliation stage with ACAS and writing my defence for a County Court case that the employer brought against me.  Kathryn was there for support and guidance whenever needed.  Kathryn did everything that was asked”.

Review from Discrimination client for Lucy Stones, Associate, Specialist Employment Solicitor

“Lucy offered excellent legal advice, explained all my options and legal rights and treated me (and my situation) with the utmost respect and kept me informed and provided options throughout.

In fact not only is she excellent at her profession but a thoroughly nice person and I now regard her as a friend!”

Review from Redundancy client for Jasmine Stewart, Specialist Employment Solicitor

“Jasmine listened very patiently, collating a great amount of information, calmly guiding me through my options, making it very clear to me that I was under no obligation and that I still had a choice.

 I am extremely impressed with Jasmine’s knowledge and ability to take over the discussions on my behalf. She was able to increase my settlement and provide an outcome I am happy with”.

Review from Settlement Agreement client for Sally Hubbard, Managing Director, Specialist Employment Solicitor

“Sally Hubbard, was easy to talk to. She communicated clearly and explained the issues and how to address them. Sally works efficiently and with integrity. Her very strong technical expertise meant that the matter was dealt with expediently and to my satisfaction. I would highly recommend Sally Hubbard. 

The outcome was what I had hoped for and proceeded without a hitch.  Sally did excellent work in getting me the desired outcome. There is nothing more she could have done”.

Review from Unfair Dismissal client for Sophie Goodwill, Director, Specialist Employment Solicitor

“Sophie has helped me tirelessly from start to finish with the entirety of my legal proceedings. Sophie made sure that my claim / relevant documents were submitted on time to ensure we could continue and not make any silly mistakes. My instructions were always followed but I would often receive advice on different ways we could approach certain subjects to improve our chances of success. In times where I would be frustrated or angry at the circumstances, Sophie would keep a level head and help me refocus on the task in hand, also making sure I always fully understood the impact any of my decisions may have on my case. Sophie made sure that I had full understanding of any documents or events that we were dealing with, there was never any surprises. Finally, Sophie gave me hope during a time where everyone was trying to take it away from me. It was refreshing for someone to believe me 100%, this support helped me through some very dark times.

I honestly believe there is nothing more Sophie could of done for me”.

Review from Discrimination client for Lucy Stones, Associate, Specialist Employment Solicitor

“I had a situation at work which resulted in me raising a Formal Grievance. Due to the nature of the grievance I needed support and guidance to understand my position both legally and personally. It was a very difficult time emotionally, mentally and physically. I decided to look for legal representation online and found a blog that was relative to my situation.

From the outset Lucy had my wellbeing as number one priority, whilst ensuring I received the legal guidance and advice relative to my circumstances. I was kept informed, and provided with options throughout. All the information was clear and concise. I felt I had a friend watching my back.  I never imagined that I would get the outcome that I did. It was more than what I had hoped for”.

Review from Contract Dispute client for Jasmine Stewart, Specialist Employment Solicitor

“Jasmine went through all my contracts and agreements I had with my actual employer. She took time to read them all and then ask me to clarify all the details and working aspects. Very professional, supportive, very friendly. She pays attention to all the small details of the matter.

Jasmine did a fantastic job, quick and to the point. She didn’t waste my time nor my money. If life will bring me more challenges, she will be the one I will contact first”.

Review from Voluntary Redundancy client for Sally Hubbard, Managing Director, Specialist Employment Solicitor

“Sally advised me on the Settlement Agreement I had been offered. Although I was keen to sign the Agreement offered, Sally scrutinised the Agreement and saw how some ambiguous wording could be improved upon to make things crystal clear. My employers were in agreement with Sally and took on board her suggestions and amended the wording.

There is nothing else Sally could have done. I am pleased that I chose to consult a specialist solicitor, rather than a general practice”.

Review from Settlement Agreement client for Sophie Goodwill, Director, Specialist Employment Solicitor

“She was a tremendous help right from the off, I cannot speak highly enough on her capability and competence to undertake the role I engaged her. Sophie’s advice, progression, pace and above all deliverance was excellent.  We achieved what we required, through Sophie’s strong attention to detail and determination to get the right result we achieved a good result.

It is rare that I cannot find constructive feedback and areas in which to improve upon, but I have to say I cannot detail anything that would help enhance her personal development – she is a credit to her company”.

Review from Discrimination client for Lucy Stones, Associate, Specialist Employment Solicitor

“I met with her for an initial appointment and she gave me time to fully explain what had happened. I felt she really listened to me. She then asked me what my objectives were and set out about giving me the options available to me. Once I confirmed how I would like to proceed, she took it all in charge.

She was incredibly helpful and put me right at ease. She’s very knowledgeable on any questions I had and I had full faith in her abilities”.

Review from Settlement Agreement client for Jasmine Stewart, Specialist Employment Solicitor

“Jasmine explained the terms of my agreement clearly and advised me on my rights including clauses and entitlements. Her service was outstanding, Jasmine went above and beyond to help me.

I am very pleased with the service I received from Jasmine and would thoroughly recommend her to anyone”.

Review from Bullying and Harassment client for Sally Hubbard, Managing Director, Specialist Employment Solicitor

“Sally listened to my situation and gave really valuable advice. She made me feel like I had taken back some control over the situation and fought my corner, which made me feel better. Sally kept me up to date with the situation regularly, which helped lessen my anxiety, and explained all the options thoroughly so I could make an informed decision at each stage. She was approachable and supportive all the way through to a positive conclusion.

I am not sure there is anything else Sally could have done better. The situation was a difficult one for me, but she provided good advice and support and was really understanding all the way through, which helped me feel much better about things at a difficult time”.

Review from Contract Dispute client for Sophie Goodwill, Director, Specialist Employment Solicitor

“My employer had made attempts to change my contract of employment during a period when I was caring for my sick partner. Sophie was very easy to talk to and helped me focus on the right issues at the right time. Her support and advice was priceless in ensuring I achieved the best outcome for me. She was always available to help me navigate through some tricky times and allowed me to focus on caring for my partner.

Sophie was excellent and I cannot think of anything she could have done any better. I totally recommend her”.

Review from Settlement Agreement client for Kathryn Bolton, Associate, Specialist Employment Solicitor

Review from Discrimination client for Lucy Stones, Associate, Specialist Employment Solicitor

Review from Coronavirus Health and Safety and Unfair Dismissal client for Sally Hubbard, Managing Director, Specialist Employment Solicitor

“I contacted Sally after my unlawful dismissal. I had no contract, no holiday entitlement, and my employer had acted in contravention of government advice regarding coronavirus. She helped me reach an agreement and settlement through ACAS. This is the second time that I have needed Sally’s services. Need I say more, I would not use anyone else”.

Review from Settlement Agreement client for Sophie Goodwill, Director, Specialist Employment Solicitor

“Sophie is fantastic. You can’t go wrong with her. She is a good listener. She asked for more details to understand the case better. She offers sound advice based on the case.”

Review from Settlement Agreement client for Kathryn Bolton, Associate, Specialist Employment Solicitor

“I felt unfairly treated and needed legal advice. Kathryn was extremely benevolent and understanding. This was an extremely low point for me, and she was articulate and precise with all of her advice and recommendations. I was clear of my options and felt totally supported, whichever avenue I chose”.

Review from Maternity Discrimination client for Lucy Stones, Associate, Specialist Employment Solicitor

“I felt I was treated unfairly by my employer when returning from maternity leave. Lucy gave excellent advice from the start and encouraged me to formally raise my concerns with my employer, supporting me throughout the whole process. She is very knowledgeable and made me feel supported throughout the difficult journey. Her communication skills were excellent, and she thoroughly explained everything to me clearly, allowing me to explore and understand all my options and the possible outcomes, without sugar-coating anything. Professional, reliable, and responsive. I am extremely happy with the service Lucy provided.”

Review from Redundancy client for Sally Hubbard, Managing Director, Specialist Employment Solicitor

Sally reviewed all details of my case, reviewed documentation, and walked me through various options and recommendations. I now have a suggested approach and understanding of why that approach was recommended. Sally was great!”

Review from Unfair Dismissal and Disability Discrimination client for Sophie Goodwill, Director, Specialist Employment Solicitor

“I initially made an appointment with Sophie as I felt incidents beyond my control caused my dismissal. During the initial consultation, Sophie gave me reassurance that this was most likely correct. She took extensive notes and guided me on the next steps to take in appealing the dismissal. After the appeal was upheld, she provided advice on how to move forward with this through ACAS Conciliation and lodging a Disability Discrimination claim with the Employment Tribunal. At all steps, throughout the distressing formal process, Sophie provided guidance and reassurance that a positive outcome was most likely.

There was nothing she could have done better. A professional advocate, who genuinely cares about her clients”.

Review from Unlawful Deduction From Wages client for Kathryn Bolton, Associate, Specialist Employment Solicitor

“Kathryn took the time to listen to all of the complicated issues. She understood immediately what was going on and was able to give me excellent guidance and advice.

Kathryn was excellent in how she dealt with my case. She took care and attention to the details and did not labour every conversation about her costs, which I really appreciated”.

Review from Settlement Agreement client for Lucy Stones, Associate, Specialist Employment Solicitor

“I had received a Settlement Agreement which I had not been expecting. It was a bit of a shock, I was told to go and see a Legal Adviser and a friend of mine recommended Lucy.

She asked me to go through everything that had happened and, once she had listened to it all, she gave me some really great and logical advice. I have now left my employment, but Lucy negotiated a great result for me.”

Review from Redundancy (Disputed Suitable Alternative Employment) client for Sally Hubbard, Managing Director, Specialist Employment Solicitor

“Sally has been outstanding. From my first conversation with her, she demonstrated her breadth of experience and expertise in this area. She was quick-thinking, fantastic at communicating her thoughts, both verbally and in written format, and easy going and approachable. She was always available for advice when needed and maintained a professional but approachable demeanour throughout.

I was completely satisfied with every aspect of her work. I highly recommend Sally – without reservation.”

Review from Wrongful and Unfair Dismissal client for Sophie Goodwill, Director, Specialist Employment Solicitor

“I lost my job and needed help in fighting against what I believed was a case of Wrongful Dismissal. Sophie spoke to me clearly and was so understanding of my position. She took the time to go through the procedure and always kept me informed of the progress of the case. She was incredibly efficient and always in my corner. I could not fault the service I received.”

Review from Settlement Agreement client for Kathryn Bolton, Associate, Specialist Employment Solicitor

“Due to an employment issue, I was offered a Settlement Agreement and needed a legal adviser to go through the details of the contract with me before agreeing to it. Kathryn asked for and took the time to understand the background events leading up to the offer of a Settlement Agreement. Using this information, she was able to achieve a better outcome than was originally offered by my employer.

I can’t think of what she could have done better in my case”.

Review from Disability Discrimination client for Lucy Stones, Associate, Specialist Employment Solicitor

“I was encountering difficulties at work and I believed it was in relation to my disability. Lucy allowed me to explain to her, in my own time, exactly what had happened. She listened to the events and what my concerns were. Once I had finished explaining everything to her, she then provided me with clear advice on what to do next and what my chances were should I bring a claim forward. Lucy really helped me. I couldn’t have done it without her.”

Review from Performance Management Procedure client for Sally Hubbard, Managing Director, Specialist Employment Solicitor

“Sally initially provided me with a free consultation call, during which she advised me to take a particular course of action to protect my position. This was something that neither of the two other solicitors (from other firms who I also had free initial consultation calls with) advised me to do, and it proved to be the correct advice. Throughout the whole process, Sally provided solid and comprehensive legal advice, was always honest about potential scenario outcomes, and provided sound strategies for dealing with the matter in hand.

One very important service that Sally also provided was that of emotional support, providing a sympathetic ear and always having my mental and physical wellbeing as a priority. For an individual to take on their employer (part of a large corporate) can be a daunting task – Sally fully understands the gambit of emotions that can entail and manages to provide positive support in an excellent manner”.

Review from Settlement Agreement client for Sophie Goodwill, Director, Specialist Employment Solicitor

“Sophie was fantastic in what was a very surprising (in a negative way) employment experience. Sophie’s knowledge and expertise clearly outlined my position and put my mind at ease, taking control of the situation and dealing skilfully with my employer. There was nothing she could have done better, the experience was five star.”

Review from Settlement Agreement client for Kathryn Bolton, Associate, Specialist Employment Solicitor

“Kathryn listened carefully to my request for assistance with regard to a Settlement Agreement for the termination of my employment contract. She explained carefully the legal aspects to the situation, explained what options I had, completed the legal requirements and documentation, and dealt directly with my employer to ensure the Settlement Agreement was completed as soon as possible.

I could not have wished for a better service.”

Review from Redundancy client for Lucy Stones, Associate, Specialist Employment Solicitor

“I was at risk of redundancy. Lucy guided me through what was happening and what I should expect to happen. There were some problems with the redundancy calculations too, which she spotted for me. Lucy gave me clear advice and was very helpful.”
