Thank you so so much for all your hard work and support!!!! You have an absolutely brilliant team, they did an amazing job and they did so so well in court! Through all our stress it was nice to have lawyers we could put our faith in. Thanks again, we truly appreciate it so much!!! Mrs G - London
Thank you for all your hard work and help with my mum. You [Erin Cowley] were brilliant! Miss K - Cumbria
I was highly impressed with the way in which my case was handled by Jonathan from my initial instruction to its conclusion, Both my partner and I were treated with the utmost courtesy and no query was too small nor too great for Jonathan and the team. He went above and beyond to help me. Jonathan explained the whole legal process in relation to my case in a clear and comprehensible manner. He also treated me with respect and total honesty ensuring that I fully understood the available options open to me and their possible outcomes. With his guidance and support, I was able to face up to and make some difficult decisions…I would not hesitate in recommending Jonathan and Burton Copeland. Testimonial - Mr C - Oct 2017 - Manchester
I had to write because it is very rare in these times to be able to say thank you and mean it. Unfortunately my son found himself in trouble and...we instructed one of your solicitors to represent him. In the first instance, Laura Ward Jones attended court and I found her not only to be highly competent but very understanding of mine and my families distress and I thank her very much for her support. The case was then handed to Suzanne Dooley. I can't praise her enough! Her standard of professionalism, understanding and support were second to none. She made herself available to me day and night and kept me informed throughout the whole process. She worked tirelessly until the outcome we expected was achieved..... This has been a very trying time for me and when difficult times present themselves, to have the opportunity to be represented by people who treated the case as if it was one of there own family members was heart warming and gave me the strength to get through all of this. I thought in this horrible world we lives and the fact that I know you deal with difficult issues on a daily basis that it was appropriate to send this letter to you so that you could see that the work you and your colleagues do really does make a difference to people's lives. I thank you all from the bottom of my heart. Mr M - Bury
