"After a traffic incident, I was told to get a good solicitor, and was recommended Switalskis Solicitors. I gave them a call as was put through to Katrina Elsey. From the very first meeting it was clear how professional they were. No matter how small my enquiry was throughout the process Katrina, was on hand to help and advise. I would fully recommend Katrina and Switalskis Solicitors to anyone looking for a good professional service."

"During my claim, solicitor Katrina Elsey worked tirelessly in trying to get me the best possibly outcome, she constantly kept me updated with everything that was happening, and was always there if I had any questions or query’s about things I wasn’t sure about. Would highly recommend to anyone who’s unsure about claiming for something, you could miss out on a lot you’re owed. I would definitely use them again in the future if needed."
