Quote from satisfied client:

“Our initial emotions when contacting Lanyon Bowdler were chaotic to say the least regarding the resultant injury and complications that occurred from the actions taken by the medical staff that were caring for our daughter.

“Throughout the process and involvement with yourself, and the company as a whole, we have been treated with respect and empathy and this, I believe, led to a relationship of trust; whilst you maintained a professional attitude to all aspects of our daughter’s claim. We were very appreciative of the help and advice that you gave us and would like to express our thanks once again for the guidance that you provided.”
