What Our Clients Have to Say


‘My solicitor Mr James Bradford of Gard & Co was very professional and I found him extremely helpful in all facets of my case.

I would recommend Gard & Co to my friends and family.’ Mr A of Wadebridge, Cornwall

Silly really, and not very professional, but I’ve got to add that I feel like I’m losing a friend!!’  Ms H of Modbury


‘Thank you so much for your letter notifying me of your final negotiations in the sum of £9,500 on my behalf, with regards to my personal injury claim.  This is good news, and I look forward to receiving the cheque.

I feel that I should do something with regards to reporting my previous solicitors (name withheld).  As you know, I never even got to meet them, and yet they said that there wasn’t enough to go on to make a claim and closed my case.  Thank goodness I found Gard & Co.’  B of Ivybridge


‘We would just like to say a few words about the professional attitiude of your staff that dealt with my case.  The receptionist for her calm voice and attitude on the phone; she greeted us when we came into the office and made us feel somebody cared.  You must be proud of her as your first point of contact.  Mr Jim Bedford for his soft spoken voice and the knowledge of the law that helped us through all aspects of the case.  He kept us informed from beginning to end, arranged all the necessary medicals and other appointments and was always at the end of the phone if I needed him.  The man is a true professional and he must be a real asset to your firm.  Once again, thank you and we would highly recommend Gard & Co.’  Mr & Mrs J of Plymouth


‘I would like to say how happy I am with the level of service I have received. Everything went so smoothly.  All I had to do was explain what had happened to me and you did everything else whilst keeping me informed of progress throughout.  I can honestly say I cannot think of anything to improve the service I received.  You did everything for us from start to finish.  I will definitely recommend you to anyone I know who may need your help.’  Mr B of Plymouth


‘My involvement with your company, and with Jim Bedford in particular, was quite a difficult and complicated affair which lasted for about four years.  Throughout all of that time my case was dealt with in a thoroughly professional manner.  At all times we, my wife and I, were treated with respect and empathy and were kept informed of progress at all times, and any questions we had would be answered in language that we could understand and identify with.  Jim did his best to reassure us and put our minds at rest when some difficult decisions had to be made.  At the end of the day, after a lot of hard work by Jim…we won the day and things turned out well for us.

I now entrust your firm with all of our legal issues, from the conveyancing of our lovely new home to the making out of our wills and powers of attorney.

On our numerous visits to your premises we have at all times been made to feel welcomed and comfortable at all times.  Thank you [receptionist] !!’   Mr F of Kingsbridge


‘What can I say!  How happy happy am I?  Really, thank you so much for all your hard work, understanding, patience and kindness.  You have made me feel at ease and confident.  Certainly a wonderful outcome from a rather awful incident.’  Ms W of Plymouth


‘I would like to thank you for today’s appointment, and for the way you explained everything to me regarding how the ‘no win no fee’ works. You were very professional yet very human, and certainly didn’t talk down to me.’  Ms H of Plymouth


‘Your fast and hassle free approach has been greatly appreciated, and whilst I still bear the scar of what happened, the claim procedure you conducted and the manner in which you proceeded was of great comfort.  I hope I shall never need the services of a solicitor again, but if circumstances forced me to, I would not think twice about going to any other solicitor or company other than yourself and Gard & Co.  You have been fantastic.’  Mrs B of Ivybridge


‘I acknowledge safe receipt of the cheque in the sum of £4,570 in full and final settlement of my claim. May I thank you for all your help in this matter and should the need arise, I will certainly recommend your services to any friends and acquaintances who need any legal advice in the future.’  Mrs C of Estover, Plymouth
