What his clients say

‘We have been really pleased with your help & the team’s work at Gard & Co. We also had a higher than expected payout.

Again, thank you for all your work, especially during Covid and working from home. You somehow managed to answer every question and keep us well informed from start to finish. Including through nail biting decisions!

Whilst we would prefer not to be in this situation (no injury is worth the money!) we think you have achieved the best result for us. We really do thank you for this.’ Ms G, Plymouth

‘Very satisfied, with all that Simon & his team had done for me, advice was good & they always kept me informed of what was happening’ Mr I of Plymouth

‘I can’t thank you enough for the help and advice you gave me, I think it went a long way towards the successful outcome of my case.  Should I need a solicitor in the future or have a friend who needs one, I will definitely be contacting you.’ Ms H of Plymouth
