Community Impact

We channel the energy of our public-spirited people and clients towards improving our local communities.

I’ve found Fiona [Tinsley’s] attention to detail and compassion towards my being and case astonishing, to a level above and beyond what most would present. Fiona finally concluded my case, negotiating a substantial settlement on my (and my wife’s) behalf, helping to secure our future. I view Fiona as such an asset to your business. If ever asked, I would happily recommend Fiona and Brabners in regard to any clinical negligence claim in the future. You could not get a better service.

Anonymous client 'MP'

Firstly, l would like to thank you for your persistence and hard work on behalf myself and the girls. We can now have closure on what happened and at least some admittance was better than none. I just hope it doesn't happen to anyone else... It has been a long and tough road, but you have been caring and very easy to talk to and always had time to answer my questions. I will definitely recommend your services if the need arises in the future to friends and family.

Anonymous client 'JH'

Thank you' is just not enough to express my gratitude. You are a lovely person with a kind heart and you have helped me more than you know. I’m proud to be a part of the NHS and it truly saddened me that I had to consider taking legal action against an industry that I love, but you helped me understand how to channel those feelings in the right way. You have been a part of my life intimately, talking about issues that are very personal… I really can’t say ‘thank you’ enough.

Anonymous client 'TC'

Many thanks again for the fresh and professional you have taken to my claim. It has clearly made the difference that was needed and got things over the line.

Anonymous client 'JC'

I couldn't be more impressed with the service I received from Becky Addison. She took the time to thoroughly understand my situation, patiently listening to all my concerns and questions and providing clear, insightful explanations every step of the way. Her communication skills were outstanding, ensuring that I was always kept informed of developments and promptly responding to any questions I had. Thanks to Becky's expertise and unwavering support, we were able to achieve a favourable outcome in my case, exceeding my expectations. I'm immensely grateful for her guidance and representation and I wholeheartedly recommend Becky and Brabners to anyone in need of legal assistance.
