5 star review  I would highly recommend Gillian to anyone in need of employment advice. She offers a highly professional as well as caring service, listening sensitively to understand a person's individual circumstances and offering experienced and well-considered advice. She manages the process through very attentively which leaves you feeling that you are in very good hands. Her fees are very competitive and represent very good value for money.

5 star review  I instructed Gillian Patch of Patch Law who is a Grade A Solicitor during the Pandemic/Lockdown. I always check the SRA website to check how long someone is qualified for before I instruct them to ensure they are regulated. She was made aware of my personal restrictions in leaving my house. Several documents were sent to her and due to her extensive experience she was able to identify the relevant documents. She was also able to respond remotely in a tight timescale and there were no delays in her carrying out my instructions as a Client despite probably being very busy dealing with other Clients. She acted in the best interest of the Client by considering both the financial issues of leaving and the practical issues of leaving but also recognised the difficulties for a Client not being able to see a Solicitor in-person and the trust needed in the Solicitor-Client relationship. Instructions were provided remotely email and telephone and Geography was not a problem in terms of acting in her professional capacity. It was easier to discuss issues over telephone given that when I do go out I am conscious of wearing a face mask and that does create a barrier to communication. During the correspondence she was able to provide an objective opinion on the issues. There is often a saying an individual cannot be their own Doctor, the same is true an individual cannot be their own Lawyer. Your not objective on your own life. Having extensive experience myself with Solicitors I tried to keep the Legal costs to a minimum by responding quickly but also ensuring everything that needed to be covered was covered.

5 star review  An excellent Professional service with great advice and support. Superb and speedy communication enabling a quick drawing up of a contract, happy to highly recommend.

5 star review  Brilliant, brilliant service. Gillian genuinely cared about the outcome, and was in regular contact to make sure things were going OK. She took great care to explain legal documentation to me in a way that made it easy to understand, and identified areas where I could get a better deal. Being made redundant is never going to be the nicest experience, but having Gillian on hand gave me confidence and made it much easier to deal with, demonstrably improving the final result. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Patch Law to anyone in a similar situation.
