The Department was praised for it’s client service: “Words can’t explain how excellent it was. The team was so caring and it felt like a really personal service.” It also gained recognition for it’s expertise and specialist nature… “It was the expertise we appreciated – it is a truly specialist team. There is a nurse who goes through the records with a fine toothcomb and raises the questions that need to be answered by experts.” Technical ability is also a strength of the Department… “As a regional firm it punches well above its weight. It is very good on quantum and looks for avenues that haven’t been explored.”
The ranked lawyers in the Medical Negligence Department were Department head David Kerry who received a wealth of positive feedback, with many sources stressing his thoroughness: “He is very precise and meticulous, and questions things more than most” and Madeline Seibert who was said to remain a popular figure with clients, one of whom said: “She was an absolute stalwart and stuck with me through thick and thin. The empathy she showed was unbelievable.”
