A few of our client reviews

J. Thrower

I would recommend Devonshires. I have had loads of help and Karen could not do more to help me. She was always friendly and always giving me the best advice possible.


I would certainly recommend them to anyone I know. They still believed in my case even when the other side declined neglect. They were willing to go to court but luckily the defence paid out without this being the case. I am extremely grateful for the support they gave all the way through the claim.


What had been an anxious and frustrating 10 months, bought me to the most incredible lady, who worked tirelessly on my case and fought my corner, culminating in a very successful resolution. I simply cannot thank Karen Cathcart, and the firm enough. Karen was incredibly friendly, accessible and straight-talking, in the most perfect and professional way. I have, and will continue to, recommend both Karen and this firm to anyone I know who is in need of some good, solid legal advice.
