“My case, being a medical negligence one, took nearly 7 years - how these people kept track of my case was fantastic. Everything shown and discussed with me and my wife. They arranged all visits to witnesses, hospitals, etc and had regular meetings to keep us updated on costs etc. I would use these any time, they have become like family.”

“We have been involved with Bridge McFarland (Grimsby, Medical Negligence department) for some time on our case. Throughout this time the service we have received has been amazing. Whenever we needed to speak to the legal team or had any issues/problems nothing seemed too much trouble for them. We were made to feel like not just clients but friends too and that kind of atmosphere put us at a lot more ease. We have recommended this firm to several of our friends over the years, not only for the service but also for the dedication we felt that was put to our case. ”
