"I have to say from the first telephone call with lorna, she was able to let me speak freely about the situation without any pressure or time constraints.
Over the course of the next 2 weeks she gave me valuable insight into the process and gave me confidence. I was kept upto date with how negotiations were going and I was very pleased with the outcome. It was a pleasure working with Lorna"
"I had to get legal assistance for a deal to sign with my old company. I turned to Monaco Solicitors, and I had the pleasure of receiving assistance from the lawyer Nicola Welchman, who was ready to understand the problem and fast and professional in solving it. It 'was a superlative experience that, in case of new need, I will certainly repeat."
"My experience with Monaco was honestly the best, especially at a time I was feeling overwhelmed with information and emotionally drained from my situation. Time was of the essence and my lawyer offered urgency with much needed honesty, to ease my concerns and help me make an informed decision. If you are looking for efficiency, detailed, yet jargon free information with realistic support from someone who takes the baton and runs with your case, then I recommend Monaco purely on the basis of my experience.
I would check their fab tutorials online initially too, to gain advice on the process and templates to assist if you are completely stuck on what to do. I honestly watched and used this free service which helped me focus and ultimately decide on choosing them to represent me. Good luck!"
"I highly recommend Monaco Solicitors and in particular Dippalli who helped me with a settlement agreement. The service was professional, prompt, informative and hassle free. Thank you so much for making a stressful situation that bit easier."
"Massive thanks to Will Burrows who gave me sound & honest advice today. Your expertise shone through, I feel thousands better, as I now have a plan of action. I’ve spent months stressing, trying to find an effective employment solicitor who truly represents the employee, I know now that I’ve found the right one. Thanks so much!"
"Lorna Valcin acted on my behalf with regards to my employer. She was very professional in her approach to this task. Always very prompt to keep me in the loop with details of the negotiations. Very punctual to call me with pre-arranged calls.
I've never been involved in matters like this before but Lorna was able to re-assure me at every level, answered my questions promptly and was very patient with me.
I would certainly recommend her as her work was of the highest quality."
"I can’t recommend Monaco Solicitors highly enough. I was suffering with bad anxiety during a highly stressful situation at work.
I was struggling to get heard in my company and my assessment of the situation was being dismissed as wrong.
Aside from my GP and counsellor Chris was the one person who was able to see my assessment of the situation as accurate and who was in a position take action to fight my corner for me.
I cannot get across how much his support and validation meant to me at a time when I had been made to believe I was going mad.
We often need lawyers most in times of severe emotional distress and Chris is the best lawyer I’ve had in terms of feeling that he was on my side as well as being practical in terms of possible results.
The outcome was brilliant and fast!
Chris was always available to answer questions quickly and supportively by phone or email even when I was probably just stressing!
His fees were very well earned. Thank you!"
"I was going through a difficult and stressful time with my employer and sought the help of Monaco Solicitors when I was provided a Without Prejudice discussion and a Settlement Agreement shortly after.
I was given the expertise and professionalism of Dippalli Naik whom found no problem to be too small and promptly answered any and all queries I had when negotiating a Settlement Agreement amount and made sure I was kept down to Earth when looking at what was reasonable and what was not. She even answered my emails over the weekend and made sure that my Agreement went through on time and removing a lot of stress and anxiety from the whole process.
I cannot thank Dippalli enough for giving me the dignity and strength to go through with this and helping me feel safe in finding new work. I will most certainly be recommending your services to anybody that needs them!"
"First class service - great response times and most importantly advice guidance & tactics - from in my case - Dippalli - (even when she was away on holiday or weekends) - this was especially important during a complex and stressful situation - so I really appreciated the great communication - I without hesitation would strongly recommend Dippalli and the wider Monaco team - as they are true and dedicated experts in this area of the law and a team you can rely on to get to the best and most realistic outcome - based on deep experience and savvy, candid advice."
"Garvey was very professional, courteous, clear and patient throughout the whole process, and allowed us to get a great outcome: he called back quickly, spent enough time understanding the situation initially, ensured he had access to all the relevant information, and created a negotiation strategy that we followed through. During each conversation of the iterative process, he also assessed the situation very well and explained the potential options clearly.
Beyond the good results achieved and the collaborative approach, I would also strongly recommend Monaco and Garvey to anyone as the alternatives that I had found in the market had a fixed fee model which didn't incentivize the solicitors to perform well. Additionally, the attitude from a few others whom I contacted didn't seem very professional.
Finally, you should be prepared that this whole process takes a few months rather than a few weeks."
"I couldn't be more grateful to Monaco Solicitors, especially to the wonderful Nicola Welchman. She is highly professional, competent and sympathetic. She went above and beyond each time, and worked tirelessly to get everything in the best possible place for me (she even emailed me back during her family holidays!). I cannot recommend Nicola highly enough."
"I recently have had the help of Monaco Solicitors, namely Garvey Hanchard.
Garvey was a joy to deal with and was extremely helpful and reliable. He offered advice where he was not obliged to and really helped me. I would strongly recommend Monaco Solicitors. Thanks so much Garvey."
"I wanted to help a friend who felt forced to resign from her job due to persistent criticism and intimidation. She was too exhausted and demoralised to research her options herself. Monaco Solicitors responded straight away to my enquiry and, without obligation, emailed me a range of information and templates. I passed these to my friend who was then able to make an informed decision on what action to take."
"I contacted quite a few solicitors and websites for advice before coming across Monaco Solicitors through their book first of all (an excellent read) and then by contacting Dippalli Naik. Although I had received some good advice here and there from various people, Dippalli really stood out to me; her enthusiasm, energy, and really great advice helped me so much. I was in a very stressful situation at work, and Dippalli felt like my saviour. I feel hugely indebted to her. She was unstinting in her help and advice, and the fixed fee structure felt much more affordable, and with no uncertainties regarding escalating costs. I can't recommend Monaco Solicitors highly enough (the owner for his book, and Dippalli for her advice and professionalism). Thank you!"
"I am very grateful to Garvey as he was very supportive and professional right from the beginning to the end of my case. My case was a Settlement Agreement and he helped me a lot by taking time to listen and explain any little details I didn't understand. I would like to stress on that as I had a quite negative experience with being represented by a union representative before I got in touch with Monaco. And that was a huge difference. I would highly recommend Garvey."
"I got in touch with Monaco in my attempts to resolve a dispute with my employer, and to seek a settlement agreement, as I was being treated very unfairly by my employer. My employer initially agreed to discuss settlement, and then changed their minds. This lead to a very protracted situation, which lasted almost a year, where they continued to treat me poorly, refusing to accept their shortcomings and failings, instead seeking to find ways to encourage me to resign. In this situation, it would have been very easy for me to give up, under the pressure of being encouraged by my employer to believe that I was at fault. Even though there was no sign, or guarantee of a settlement over an 11 month period, my solicitor Nicola continued to encourage and support me, and gave me the huge confidence I need to know that what I believed in and was fighting for was right. Without this, I may well have given up on the case, under the pressure of bullying from my employer. Finally, once my case was escalated up the management chain, my employer accepted that settlement was the only option, their approach to me changed completely, and this was where Nicola came into her own, achieving a better settlement than I was expecting, and concluding events swiftly, and with minimal personal disruption. It is such a relief to be able to rebuild my confidence, and to move on with my life, and I could not have achieved this without Nicola's continuous support and belief."
