“ Jennifer Seavor at Royds Withy King dealt with my mother’s compensation claim. The service I got from her was excellent. She kept me fully informed of progress at all times and was there to explain any issues that arose. She is a true professional. When my mother passed away she was so kind and thoughtful of my feelings when making contact either by letter or by phone. I would not hesitate in recommending her to anyone looking for a professional and personal service. ”
“ Jennifer has been totally professional and caring with our situation. She knows what she is doing and gets things done. A very caring firm; genuine people who are there to help. No false promises, just professional people. ”
“ From our first contact, Jennifer treated us with great sensitivity, care and understanding. She guided us through the claims process, kept us regularly updated and supported us with regular monthly meetings at the ‘Swindon and Wiltshire Asbestos Support Group’ meetings hosted and sponsored by RWK. We are sorry that Jennifer did not meet Dad, but know that he would have been pleased that she had managed to get compensation to support Mum. ”
