"Following an incident where I was treated with discrimination and judgement from an employer, I decided to head down the legal route to resolve the issues I faced as a result. I initially contacted a solicitor who could help me using a ‘legal aid’ scheme, however I found the person whom I spoke to, to be incredibly rude and ignorant to the sensitivity of my issue. I decided to look elsewhere, and fortunately I stumbled across Laveer Legal.
From the word ‘go’, I was treated with dignity and understanding from every employee I came into contact with from Laveer Legal. My disability was discussed with the solicitors at Laveer, who in turn made every step of the legal process easier, in terms of making me finally feeling heard, and also in terms of updating me on any progress as often as they could, due to my high anxiety levels and, at that stage, my poor mental health.
Laveer Legal empowered me to stand up for what is right, and helped me gain confidence in knowing that my claim was legitimate; I learned that what happened was wrong, it wasn’t my fault, and I deserved some form of apology from those who caused me significant distress.
I honestly couldn’t have asked for more from a solicitor or their team. At the times where I felt anxious about the situation, I was able to contact either the solicitor or paralegal directly, who were always able to put my mind at ease.
I entered my claim on a ‘no win no fee’ arrangement, which in itself allowed accessibility to justice, as without this arrangement, I financially wouldn’t have been able to progress my claim in any form.
The barrister that was recruited for me by Laveer Legal was also incredible. She was so kind, supportive and considerate, which also made the tribunal process much, much easier for me.
I would urge anyone who has suffered from discrimination to contact Laveer Legal. Finally being heard significantly changed me, for the better. I now feel that even though I am disabled, I am entitled to fair treatment, and I will no longer accept any ignorant assumptions regarding my condition from anyone, especially employers. I feel I have regained my power and my dignity, and I am incredibly grateful to Laveer Legal for helping me in such a way.

"“Thank you so much for your assistance with my HR issues. Your expert advice saved me for making poor decisions which would have impacted my business around employee disciplinary. You were quick in responding and provided me with the details to make an informed decision. I felt reassured and had the opportunity to discuss the situation with you personally. You then provided me with the written document and follow up information to issue to the employee. It was professional, time effective and provided me with the solution to enforce my decision in the correct manner.
I will definitely continue using your service and have found it very supportive especially in a fast moving environment whereby legislation around this area is constantly changing and it is a relief to know that I do not need to spend unnecessarily time sorting or researching this. Thank you.

"“I would like to congratulate Sam at Laveer Associates on her outstanding customer service when updating our employment contracts’.
After looking at the old contracts Sam quickly spotted several flaws and amended them quickly, inserting and removing numerous clauses that were required.
After handing out the new contracts a few of our employees had several questions I could not answer. Sam sorted the quickly for me so I could get the contracts signed, leaving employer and employee feeling secure.
Sam’s service was prompt, professional and courteous. I would urge anyone with staff to get Laveer Associates to look over their employment contracts. “

"Laveer Associates initially gave us invaluable advice about employment law and contracts when we were recruiting our staff. They equipped us with the knowledge and confidence to ensure that we were fully compliant and were furnished with contracts that suited our specific needs, to ensure we were fully protected and also had the correct agreements in place which we could enforce should the situation ever arise.
Since then they have been readily available and on hand to give us employment law advice as and when we need it. They are always friendly, supportive and reliable.
We would not hesitate to recommend them to any other businesses as we already do.
Thanks again for your continued support.

"I'd like to thank Samantha Quinn of Laveer for her legal services that she provided for me in regards to self-employment. I went to them with an issue that I had no answer to. I am delighted with the help, guidance and solution that she provided for me, making my work life very simple without the added pressure of having to sort out the legalities.
She investigated details that I hadn't even considered would affect me. The help and advice that I was given was 'above and beyond the call of duty'. The whole experience of doing business with her was very easy and an absolute pleasure. All in all, a very professional, efficient and friendly service.
I know that the next time I need assistance with employment law as an employer I will without a doubt be going to Samantha at Laveer.
Fal Patel, Director of Fal Vehicle Transport Limited, Ashton-Under-Lyne"
""Samantha became a source of great support to me during a time we were making redundancies, some of which were not so straight forward and we had to be extremely careful to ensure we were legally compliant. Samantha went further to advise of potential discrimination claims that may arise out of our decision to make redundancies, so she ensured we were covered from every angle! Her knowledge of employment law meant that I was always sure of my facts and confident in her services at every step of the way. Samantha and her company are a great source of professional guidance. Without her, I don't know what I would've done!"

"“I would just like to say a huge thank you to Samantha Quinn who helped me yesterday in my Disciplinary.
I was very impressed with her as being professional knowledgeable, and assertive when necessary without coming over aggressive, and I felt she was in control in the hearing, with a calm and understanding of the situation from both sides, treated me with respect and understood complexity of the case very quickly, and I if ever I need help from an employment advocate/rep again or if anyone asks me, Samantha Quinn would be the person i will be turning too, thank you for sending Samantha to my rescue. ”
John Blackwood, CAB, St Helens"
"“Samantha represented me through a particularly difficult dispute with a former employer. I found her to be highly professional and very personable, spending time with me during a very difficult period. During my case she was always extremely well prepared and provided me with comprehensive statements of case. During hearings she represented me robustly with her extensive knowledge being evident in the way she presented my case.
This extensive knowledge and her profession approach resulted in a positive outcome in my case that I would not have achieved without her representation. I would recommend her to any professional in need of any employment advice/representation.”
Stephen Smith, Sales Manager, British Red Cross, Salford"
"It is with great delight that I write this testimonial for Samantha Quinn of Laveer Associates who recently assisted us in a complex disciplinary matter with a member of staff.
Samantha and her team were clearly knowledgeable in regards to all aspects of employment law, which gave us the peace of mind of knowing everything was being handled correctly as well as a great source of support to management throughout this process. It was great to just hand everything over to someone else to worry about whilst we were then able to concentrate on our business.
We were more than happy with the services, but on conclusion the FSB who we have our legal insurance with commented on how thorough the reports were during the entire process and were clearly impressed with their work. Not a stone left unturned, every angle was covered and for such a complex case it would have been easy to miss, were the comments made by the FSB who see reports from professionals in this industry regularly and they were very impressed – a compliment indeed!
Our recommendations of your services to others so far have helped our kudos no end as the extraordinary personal service you offer just goes way beyond words to explain how much you can alleviate an employer’s stress and worry when it comes to these things.
We will continue to use and recommend Laveer’s services to all who may benefit from employment law & HR services.
