Customer Testimonials

Excellent service. Professional, prompt and efficient. Very knowledgable and I felt reassured with advice given. Highly recommended.

I would definitely recommend anyone to work with Lawrence and his dedicated team, the receptionist was a great help, not forgetting to mention Nikita and Vijay, especially Vijay who dealt with my case. He was very smart, precise, welcoming, understanding, approachable and above all very elliquent and professional throughout my case. They deserve every bit of praise. Thank you to Vijay and the entire team for your excellence in law practice.

I would highly recommend Lawrence and his team; they were professional and sympathetic during a stressful litigation with my employer.

Lawrence and the team went into action immediately and the years of experience was evident.

Thank you again.

My experience here has been totally positive. I have been helped and supported throughout the litigation process. Mr Rodkin and his staff were highly professional, returned calls quickly, and reached a very satisfactory solution to the problem on my behalf. I can wholeheartedly recommend them.

Lawrence helped me with an employment contract. He spotted several potential problems that I never would have thought of, kept me up to date as things progressed, and made sure I always understood what my options were. I'd definitely recommend him.
