    • My accident happened right before covid, so there were loads of delays and even a hand over in solicitors. With all the interferences, Belmont never let me down. They stayed in touch and stayed very honest throughout the whole thing.

    • The team at Belmont has been great. They went through the information with me as often as I needed to understand all the legal bits and feel comfortable proceeding. I was given an update as soon as it was available, which meant I didn’t have to constantly call - which in my experience is not always the case with solicitors. Overall very happy with the service received.

    • Good service. Kept me informed about my personal injury claim - which took about a year to settle, which was due to the other party in the accident's insurer going into liquidation, but they kept at it and eventually succeded in getting the payment. Would definately recommend.
