“I cannot recommend Kate Milton highly enough. Over the course of 5 years, Kate was on hand to support and guide my wife through my case. Her experience and expertise meant we always had total trust in the advice we received. No amount of money can heal the injury I have sustained, however, the damages I received take the worries out of the future and mean I can get on with my life without having any ill feeling or regret.”
“I had a road traffic accident in 2016 and Kate Milton didn’t just secure my very satisfactory settlement but also put everything in place to make sure my long recovery was made as easy and comfortable as possible. Kate was knowledgeable, professional and compassionate. I had total faith that she would deliver all my target outcomes both financially and physically. Hopefully, I won’t need Kate again but if I do, I’ll know who to call”.
Jeremy Ford, Barrister at 9 Gough Square, London states “Kate has a fantastic manner with clients which, coupled with her keen eye for detail and excellent grasp of personal injury litigation, makes her a formidable litigator”.
