    Amazing Service!

    I have an unseen disability and felt that I was discriminated against at work I did everything correct and did not breach any law or policy. The way I was treated by my employer made me feel very depressed and extremely anxious and I do not cope very well with any type of conflict.
    I really needed some legal advice; I was becoming overwhelmed and needed someone just to take over and understand that I needed to feel safe and not judged.
    I have no legal experience and I have never been in this position before or have I ever used a legal service.
    I did my research, I looked at reviews and discovered Gorvins!
    I was contacted by Amanda Isherwood – Senior Associate and that initial phone call I will never forget, the instant relief I was listened too, and my journey began.
    Amanda was patient with my fast talking, I often will go off subject and was on occasions depressed, I would make random decisions without any consultation and Amada worked around how I am as person with my unseen disability.
    Amanda was very professional with a good level of emotional intelligence, communicated effectively, knowledgeable, and very focused whilst making me feel valued ensuring that all costs and possible outcomes with risks were discussed and understood.
    I got a positive outcome for injury to feeling and have no regrets paying for the service, I will never forget the feeling of justice!
    I would also like to thank Lea Mansfield – Secretary who also was lovely and supportive especially dealing with my anxieties via email or phone calls.
    Thank you, Amanda, Gorvins have definitely made the right decision with employing you, and if you ever require and educational talk on unseen disabilities for you and your colleagues please contact me.
