What were the circumstances that caused you to initially look for a legal adviser?

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 there mission was move on long term employee's earning too much money and by changing there job roles and also trying to change there 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 for 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 effecting 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, And i was recommended SOPHIE GOODWILL , I started off with an 1 hours free consultation then 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, Yes 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 this, Sophie has kept in touch throughout this difficult ordeal, And finally we had some great news just a few days ago , My former employee's layer has been in touch with Sophie and asked if we could settle out of court , A few days later this was all agreed , But for me this was not only about the money , it was why should any employee be treated this way and get away with it like they did on so many occasions ( So this is for so many who sadly lost there job for the same reason ) I owe an awful lot to Sophie , This has been my BITTER SWEET CASE , Bitter because if i had Sophie fighting my corner from the off It would have saved me so much money , 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

I was dismissed from my position at work and felt I had a strong case that it was unfair and unjustified.

How has Sophie Goodwill helped you?

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.

How has Sophie Goodwill helped you?

Sophie listened to me carefully and asked relevant questions. She was clear in her explanation of every single aspect of the agreement, making sure I understood the legal language and legal implications and she answered all the questions I asked her promptly and thoroughly. She had deep technical knowledge and immediately spotted several mistakes or inaccuracies in the draft agreement which she revised thoroughly, asking for specific changes to vague or imprecise wording in order to protect my position, and the changes were implemented. Importantly, she always checked that I had understood her proposals and I was happy with everything before acting on my behalf. She was quick to deal with all matters, chasing all the parties involved (including me!), and delivered to exact deadlines. She was also friendly which was important to me as redundancy was a difficult experience.

What were the circumstances that caused you to initially look for a legal adviser?

I was dismissed from employment due to circumstances beyond my control

How has Sophie Goodwill helped you?

I initially made an appointment with Sophie as i felt that 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.

Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for?

Definitely, yes.

What could they have done better?

Nothing. A professional Advocate, who genuinely cares about her clients

What were the circumstances that caused you to initially look for a legal adviser?

A workplace dispute which led to the lodging of grievances and Employment Tribunal claims and ultimately resulted in a settlement.

How has Sophie Goodwill helped you?

It goes without saying that Sophie is an extremely professional and experienced Employment Solicitor with excellent legal knowledge, but on top of that she listens, she's easy to talk to and she cares about her clients. At an incredibly stressful time in my life, she treated me with kindness and gave me the strength to keep fighting when I felt I didn't have a voice. All her advice was given with my best interests at heart, she updated me very quickly by phone and email with every development in my case and I could almost invariably speak to her on the same day if needed. I can recommend Sophie to anyone without hesitation. A word of thanks to the whole Lincs Law team too. From my first contact with Sally and my dealings with Julia during the process, my experience has been an entirely positive one.

Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for?

Sophie secured the best outcome that was practicably achievable.

What could they have done better?

Literally nothing.
