My case was long and drawn out by the defendants. My solicitor (RJ) was always on hand to give good, honest and practical advice during the frustrating roller-coaster of a 6 year case. In turn I was able to make confident and informed decisions at pivotal moments with these years. I am happy with the eventual outcome and felt supported throughout.
If it was possible to give 11 out of 10 to the professional and diligent service provided by Robert Jones of Birchall Blackburn Law in my recent compensation claim following an accidental fall resulting in having to have a replacement radial head then I would do so.
Throughout the claim Robert kept me informed at every stage and was more than happy to discuss matters over the telephone rather than rely on emails etc.
Through his attention to detail the defendants awarded a financial settlement that given the circumstances arising from the accident was fair and just.
I have no hesitation in recommending the services of Birchall Blackburn Law and in particular to its associate Robert Jones.
I would definitely recommend. After 3 years of inactivity with my previous firm of solicitors, I was passed to Birchall Blackburn Law and Robert Jones took up my case, at the beginning of lockdown! Robert was in constant contact with me giving me updates on my case and awaiting my instructions. Robert has a no nonsense approach which was refreshing and at the beginning of August 2020 my case was settled. I am really happy with the professional way I was dealt with.
Robert Jones of Birchall Blackburn Law handled my claim for compensation following a serious cycling incident. From the moment Robert took on my case he acted with the utmost professionalism, explaining my rights and making each step of the lengthy and complicated legal process simple to understand. Robert’s dialogue was always open and honest and the outcome exceeded my expectations. I will be eternally grateful for the support I received and I would not hesitate to recommend Robert Jones and Birchall Blackburn Law to anybody seeking damages for a serious injury which was totally outside their control.
Tragic circumstance handled with the upmost respect. In September 2018 my younger brother was unfortunately killed in a road traffic collision. After months of independent research seeking professional help and advice, I came across a charity called RoadPeace for road crash victims. It was here on the RoadPeace website where I found Birchall Blackburn Law. I was dealt with by Robert Jones who, from the very beginning was a beacon of hope to my family at a time when we were grieving.
Robert’s professionalism was shown through the way he has always handled myself and my family, with complete compassion and empathy throughout the 17 months he has handled my case. I have also had the pleasure of dealing with Mervin Smith who I can also speak highly of. Both Robert and Mervin are completely professional and are a credit to Birchall Blackburn Law - I can definitely recommend Birchall Blackburn Law for anyone seeking professionalism and respectability.
Very professional service. Clear and honest with regular updates. Excellent result. I want to express my gratitude to Rob and the staff with the way my case was dealt with.
