“We instructed Glaysiers to assist us with a claim against a previous tenant in a rental property who had done huge amounts of damage. We had got to a certain point in the small claim process and felt that although it was very unlikely we would be able to claim back legal fees, it was worth investing in to give us the best chance of being successful in Court. Charles Hughes was brilliant from day 1. We sent him over all of the information along with a summary of where we were up to. His knowledge and advice were exceptional and with his meticulous guidance we felt very reassured having him dealing with our case. Glaysiers represented us at the hearing and the Judge ruled in our favour, even awarding us our legal fees from the Defendants.”
