Kind words
I found the service of Price Slate Gawne to be of a high and efficient standard. My mother’s case was handled by Victoria Price and I can’t speak too highly of her expertise, professionalism and compassion when handling this. I would certainly recommend Price Slater Gawne to anyone who needed this service.
BB, Littleborough

There is nothing you can do to improve your excellent service. I would like to thank you for your help you gave me.
RF, Wolverhampton

It was a well executed case. I had good service from Price Slater Gawne. I was kept up to date and well informed. Victoria’s advice was easy to understand.
RH, Nottinghamshire

I received a real, personalised service. I felt that my best interests were being looked after by Victoria and my health and well being were at the forefront of all decisions and communications.
LM, Swinton

I found Victoria Price extremely approachable. The action required for my case was explained clearly so I understood at every step of the way what was being done and why. I had every faith in the advice given and had no hesitation in following it.
Mrs W, N.Ireland

I was initially hesitant about ‘no win no fee’ – “there must be a catch” was my initial reaction. Having made contact however and arranged for a home visit, which impressed me as I was spared the drive to the South Manchester offices, my scepticism began to waiver. Victoria was excellent, providing detailed information regarding how the fees would be paid following a successful claim, and notifying me of the processes involved in pursuing a claim.

Throughout the claim process, Victoria contacted me regularly, asking my opinion before progressing wherever there were decisions to be made, and dealing with the processes and paperwork efficiently. I like to communicate via email and Victoria as well as her assistant Louise, sent regular email updates to advise me of progress, meaning I always felt part of the case that Victoria was fighting on my behalf. I say fighting because the case was far from straight forward, requiring appeals and questioning of regulations, all of which Victoria accomplished with a high degree of professionalism.

I’m a stickler for good customer service and demand high standards from those whom I choose to recommend. Would I recommend Victoria Price, certainly, I honestly believe that my case could not have been in better hands.
Mr D, Lancashire

Older people and people who are unwell must not be frightened of litigation. I am pleased I brought this claim on my husband’s behalf and I am pleased with, and grateful for, what (Victoria Price), my solicitor did for us.
Mrs M, Preston

I had a serious accident at work. Vicky was always easy to get hold of and she explained things so I understood them. She provided a very good service.
Robert, Wolverhampton

My trade union solicitors let me down and after two years in the darkness I felt like I was getting nowhere. I was so relieved when Vicky Price took over my case.

The difference changed my life. After just two meetings with Vicky she understood everything about my case. She knew where I was coming from. I got the compensation and apology I desperately needed and I got my life back. Vicky Price made the difference. That is how important it is to get the right solicitor.
Carolyn, Cheshire

Victoria Price represented me in my case with a professional but friendly approach. Everything was explained in a clear way and Vicky was extremely supportive through a difficult time in my life. I would highly recommend, and she would be the first I would call on if ever the need arose.
AS, London

I am very pleased with how my case was dealt with. I would like to recommend Price Slater Gawne to anyone who needs good solicitors.
Mrs SO, Manchester

I first contacted Vicky Price after a serious road traffic accident,they were recommended by a close friend of mine. My case was very complicated. Having worked all my life, my accident had left me with serious mental issues and post traumatic stress I was unable to work and this continued to my retirement age. Vicky Price who had taken my claim on a No Win No Fee basis had kept me informed of all the twists, turns and complications. Vicky came to see me at my home to personally explain as the case progressed. Throughout the case I could always turn to Vicky for advice, I am proud to call Vicky a friend. To me, and my family’s relief the insurers finally settled the case and after all the years of worry, heartache and trauma my financial future was secure.
Mr A Hughes, Malvern
