After 5 years of constant dispute we contacted Go To Court Lawyers and after our first meeting we left feeling completely relieved. Our lawyer took care of all of the correspondents, completely relieving us of any stress associated with the case and we trusted him to take care of us and he did not disappoint. He managed to get our case settled out of court and we have returned to our normal lives after 5 years. My only regret is that I didn't contact them sooner.

Communication was great from start to finish. I cannot fault them in any way, the only solicitor to go above and beyond. I would recommend anyone to use this firm, incredible. Such professionalism, they are right on top of getting you JUSTICE, not stealing your money like all of the others. They know their law, they show it in court and they advise you every step of the way, your never in the dark. I wish we had of found you before wasting money on countless other solicitors. You're only as good as your solicitor, that's the best advice I can give anyone. They have given so much of our life back, we were going to give up, we thought we had lost, then we found them, how lucky were we. Thank you so much.
