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."
Mrs H

"A great talent in your connection and engagement with people, a unique quality often lacking in the legal profession."

"Thank you for taking the time to work through the settlement agreement with my employer yesterday - and for all the help you've given me throughout the process. Bearing in mind that I was leaving my job on health grounds, I was in particular need of intelligent, balanced and sound advice, which you certainly gave me! Speaking to you clarified my thinking and helped me come to a decision that was in the best interests of everyone involved. It also played a large part in preserving what had been - at least until the last few months - a positive relationship with my employer. So - once again - thank you for your support and most of all for the quality of your advice!"

"I can't praise Jade Linton too highly. Her advice was timely, sound and very welcome - especially as I was leaving my employment on health grounds. She dealt with a sensitive issue very capably!"

"Jade Linton was especially time conscious and tried hard to make the other party comply with deadlines. The service I received was clear, reassuring and made me feel supported at a stressful time. ‘Professional support and personal reassurance’ is a description I have used previously."
Ann Joyce

"Thank you for your excellent service, Jade was very professional and supportive."
Mr William Stevenson

"My acting solicitor Jade was exceptional. Very prompt and professional and responded to my initial query within 30 minutes of me leaving a message. She was efficient in a very difficult period which helped as it was stressful and I needed efficiency to complete the case within the allocated time. She is an asset to Sydney Mitchell."
Ms Zaheera Shariff
