Ian Jones is an excellent professional solicitor, I found him quite easily through the local website. He offered advice immediately over the phone by asking questions about the case with my employer, so he could prepare for my first convenient appointment. He conducted a thorough job explaining the legal document from my employer and what options are available to me. Ian acted as my advisor and was able to consult with my employer on my behalf to develop a better clarity of the legal document. I would hire Ian again as my legal advisor; also recommend him to friends and family.
