These are some of the testimonials provided by clients of Moray Employment Law about the quality of service they have received – mainly from our principal employment law solicitor, Adelle Morris, who undertakes the majority of work for clients.
See below the comments our clients have made.
“After looking at many of the national employment law companies including Peninsula and Empire, I felt that the long tie ins typically of 3 years were something that I was not comfortable with. I believe that you should always prove your worth whether a supplier or employee and I was pleased that this was also the attitude shown by MEL
MEL invited me to meet with them to discuss what they offered and I was exceptionally impressed with that initial discussion. All my concerns were addressed –
Local solicitors with a good local knowledge yet very aware of the latest legislation and cases.
The idea of the business being locked in was quickly eliminated with a 6 month initial period agreed and then the opportunity to serve notice with one month.
The ability to handle all contractual and staff handbooks is included in the price. This included varying the standard contracts to protect my business against issues such as the loss of key staff and confidentiality.
All letters/drafts provided quickly to deal with rising problems.
Easy access to 2 key members of the MEL team by phone or in person to discuss any issues that were urgent.
Frank discussion to find the right solution to each situation. One size does not fit all.
I could elaborate but these were without doubt the key points that caught my attention. Now 3 months in I am pleased to say that all of the above and more has happened. Would highly recommend the firm as it gives you a sense of security and a feeling that you have someone that can guide you through the minefield of being an employer at this time”.
David Robertson, Employer, Elgin
“Moray Employment Law have provided me with invaluable support and advice ever since I first met them. All members of the team are a pleasure to deal with. Adelle Morris in particular provides exceptional service and makes potentially stressful spells much more manageable to deal with. I’d wholeheartedly recommend Adelle and her team.”
Lloyd Griffiths, Employer, Elgin
“From the first phone call, I found Adelle to be very helpful and knowledgeable. I had no doubt throughout the case that I had chosen the correct solicitor.
Adelle was always available to talk through my concerns and it was more like talking to a friend than a solicitor. I was made me to feel at ease and Adelle and her team always took the time to answer even the most trivial of questions. Throughout the tribunal I was reassured and guided through every step. I was never left wondering what would happen next, as Adelle prepared me for every eventuality.
Ultimately, we won our case. I can never thank nor praise Adelle and her team enough. They made me feel part of that team and we celebrated the success together. I have recommended Adelle to several friends and would not hesitate to do so again. As much as I would never want to go through this again, I am glad I did as I got to meet a very special team whose priority is always the person that they represent.”
Joanne Batham, who consulted us in relation to an Employment Tribunal claim for sex discrimination, equal pay and wrongful dismissal.
“I was very pleased with the whole service provided by yourself (Adelle) and Moray Employment Law. Although you only work part time, you do still reply to emails in your own time so I never felt there was no way of contacting you. All information provided was in an easily understandable format and any queries were dealt with promptly. Fees charged are appropriate for the quality of the professional service provided. Hopefully I will not have any further employment issues, but if I do then I know exactly where to go and would highly recommend you to anyone.
Once again I would like to thank you for all your hard work in achieving a successful outcome.”
Employee, Moray, who sought advice on contractual entitlements which resulted in the successful recovery of monies owed to the client by the former employer.
“I am writing this email as a small gesture of appreciation for the service Adelle provided.
I’m an employer running a small business and went through a traumatic time with a staff issue. Adelle was there every step of the way, providing expert advice and breaking everything down in detail to give me options of approach.
Adelle successfully defended a difficult employment tribunal claim. She took the pressure off me and provided support throughout the process. No words can describe how grateful I am that it is now over and was affordable. I highly recommend Adelle and her company and will use her again in the future.”
“I highly recommend Moray Employment Law. Adelle was fantastic!
I couldn’t have received a better service. She was dedicated and highly proactive throughout my claim. Moray Employment Law truly care about their clients, and offer a top class, professional service.”
C Timms, Grantown on Spey
“The service I have received during my redundancy by settlement has been professional, personal and dealt with the highest level of integrity at all stages.
I feel that the case was dealt with logically and in detail which was explained to ensure I had full understanding of all correspondence from my employer.
Communication was regular with instructions taken from myself before each response so that I was constantly kept in the ‘loop’ with what was going on. Also, in Adelle’s absence I was always assured that a colleague (Peter) would be on hand for support and advice. However, Adelle, working during both her holidays and days off, ensured that she was constantly aware of the stages of the case and this showed real commitment and service. I was especially grateful for this.
As a new company MEL have shown the professionalism and integrity of an established business with outstanding service and support to myself as a client.”
G Gutherson, Lossiemouth
“Before I went ahead with contacting Grigor & Young / Moray Employment Law about my employment dispute, as I was still employed by the company in question, my main concern was nervousness about my employer’s reaction / attitude to me.
After speaking with Adelle at G&Y / MEL, I felt more confident with someone on my side. It was good to have support of professionals.
I appreciated the personal and efficient service I received. Emails were always answered quickly and concisely, giving all options available to me with no pressure to pursue a particular course. All conversations were honest and whoever I spoke with appeared to genuinely care.
The fact that the office for G&Y / MEL was local to me was also a big plus.
I would recommend the employment services of G&Y / MEL to others because you can be confident of receiving an excellent service.
The whole process was dealt with sympathetically and honestly. I was never left in any doubt as the choices I could make and the possible consequences. I always felt supported, whatever I decided.”
“I employed the services of Moray Employment Law to provide advice on redundancy procedures, and to assist in the interpretation of consultation documentation (which resulted in the negotiation of a Settlement Agreement). I found that I was kept well informed via phone and email throughout the whole process. Whenever I had a query relating to my employment predicament I could rely on a prompt and efficient service. Their due diligence meant that an agreeable outcome was realised, and I would recommend them highly.”
“Thank you so much for all your help and support. It has really helped me to take a stand and whilst I haven’t ‘won’ anything financially, it was well worth the investment of time. Moray Employment Law offered a friendly and very professional service.”
AM, Moray who sought advice on the interpretation of the obligations contained in her Self-Employed Contract for Services.
” I contacted MEL when I was offered a Settlement Agreement. I felt confident that my case was in good hands and the advice I received was very thorough which helped my situation to resolve quickly without any undue stress. I would recommend MEL to anyone who is looking for Employment Advice.”
“I would recommend Moray Employment Law. Adelle was understanding and professional throughout the whole process. She was always able to offer advice and helped ease a stressful situation, negotiating a COT3 Settlement as I faced redundancy whilst on maternity leave. I received an expert service and was glad that I chose MEL.”
“Thank you very much for all your help in dealing with my situation, so intricately, courteously and professionally. You are a real asset to your company.”
