My family was recommended Edward Holmes at Forest Edge solicitors after a claim was made contesting my late fathers will. The claimant spent a lot of time and money refusing to co-operate and it was a very difficult situation. Thanks to Edward Holmes we managed to get the claimant to attend mediation and the will was settled out of court. I have no doubt that Mr Holmes was instrumental in getting us to a point of resolution and his tenacity and caring, professional attitude got us there. I really cannot speak highly enough of Forest Edge, it really was a very complex case. I would highly recommend them.

Edward has acted for us on a wide range of commercial matters and his friendly, yet no-nonsense approach to legal advice is most refreshing. However complex our problem may be, he always takes time to fully understand the commercial objective, set out a clear strategy and deliver the right result for our business.

We instructed Matthew Parker to act for us against a customer who hadn’t paid their invoice. We found Matthew to be efficient and professional, ascertaining that there was a case before we incurred any unnecessary costs and subsequently guiding us through the process, which was not always straightforward, with a clear explanation of each step. The case went to court and we won a full settlement including costs. We found Matthew’s fees to be reasonable and would not hesitate to instruct him again, or to recommend him to others.

I have used Matthew Parker and Forest Edge Legal in a personal capacity and have recommended him to my business customers. His practical, friendly and approachable style combined with his determination to provide you with a professional and quality service is always evident. He handles matters very efficiently and effectively and at all times explaining things in a refreshingly practical way. The feedback I have had from my business customers has also been very positive and highly complimentary about Matthew and his work. I have no hesitation in recommending him.

I would like to write this testimonial about Forest Edge Legal Practice as my husband and I have found Matthew Parker, the Principal, to be an excellent solicitor and would happily recommend his services to anyone wanting help and advice about the legal system.

We found him very approachable and would always take time to explain anything we did not understand. He has a good knowledge of the law and we are very glad that we took his advice at our first consultation when we were unsure of our situation. He was very efficient, always replying to my emails and returning my telephone calls.

We can therefore recommend, without hesitation, this solicitor to anyone who might need help with the law.

When faced with redundancy, Forest Edge adopted a positive and pragmatic approach, ensuring the Compromise Agreement looked after my interests whilst securing a fair compensation sum from my employer.

At all times during what could have been a stressful few weeks, Forest Edge kept me informed of progress and importantly helped me to stay in control of the process to achieve the optimum settlement available.

Forest Edge were able to bring their experience of dealing with a wide variety of Compromise Agreements to my case, ensuring that the terms eventually agreed with my employer protected my interests going forward.

I have no hesitation in recommending Forest Edge to anyone needing legal support following an employment dispute, and have already done so!
