I engaged the services of Smith Partnership to help me with an exit from my employment which had been instigated by my employer whilst I was on maternity leave and trying to return on a flexible working basis. My case was handled by James Johnson who I found to be meticulous, articulate and thoroughly knowledgeable throughout. James dealt with my case with care and understanding, doing his best to minimise any costs for myself whilst being fully transparent regarding fees. I found James to be extremely reliable, honest and client focused. My case was dealt with very quickly and reached a satisfactory conclusion to what was a very stressful time. I would not hesitate to either use Smith Partnership again and I highly recommend them, as I cannot imagine any other practice dealing with my case as well as they did.
