    As an employee, you will have legal rights governing your employment which may provide you with legal protection when things go wrong.

    I chose your company because of all the great online reviews you have received. Laura Roper is professional and knowledgeable in her field. She would assess a question and think "out of the box" which is great. Phone calls were very courteous, relaxing but engaging at the same time. Laura will always go the extra mile as I would be receiving information after work hours. I could go on and on. She is an asset to Porter Dodson.

    'Adrian Poole is an outstanding employment lawyer who is also a master of tactics. He generates high-quality work, which he is able to retain because of his exceptional client care skills. He will always go the extra mile for his client and is never afraid to take on ‘the big boys’ – usually successfully. He thrives in this field and never fails to give 100%. It is a testament to Mr Poole`s dedication to the firm and its clients, that he is still there, leading the team, when he would clearly be an obvious target for many of the bigger firms in the South West and beyond.'

    'Sarah Young was incredibly helpful, personable and took temporary charge of the case at a critical moment. She carefully thought out a solution to the issues at hand and deployed this with skill and expertise despite the delicacy of the situation, helping ensure an optimal outcome. I was delighted to work with Sarah and she displayed great empathy and understanding, both during the case and afterwards. I would highly recommend Sarah.'
