What our clients say

"I am extremely satisfied with the service that has been provided by Jade Linton regarding an employment dispute that I was unfortunate to have to go through. Jade provided the necessary clarity throughout the process that allowed me to understand the legal jargon and to feel confident as the matter progressed. She dealt with myself, my employer and their solicitors with the utmost professionalism and expediency. At the time of the dispute I was undergoing two other major challenges, which made it quite a stressful period. However, the stress was alleviated in the knowledge that a competent Jade was dealing with my employment matter - we had a positive outcome and I am very thankful."
