Client feedback via The Legal 500
I have secured the services of Claire Brook previously and was very impressed with the way Claire represented me and my interests. I recently needed help again regarding employment matters and I went straight to Claire at Aaron and Partners. Again, Claire was fantastic and along with Michael Redston my issues were dealt with in a professional, compassionate and caring manner with a very fast outcome that was to my complete satisfaction. I would recommend Claire and Michael at Aaron and Partners to anyone with any employment issue. They are incredibly knowledgeable, efficient and caring.
