I would like to take this opportunity to express my high praise for the work Mark Copley has undertaken in helping me and in settling my case. I'm a mature lady, who knows her own limitations; I can be quite difficult and have very little patience with people or bureaucracy. I therefore know I haven’t been the easiest of clients, but Mark has been amazing, he has always been polite and helpful, I was always fully updated, the timescales and the processes involved were always made very clear and explained fully. Mark was always contactable and when we spoke, there was a genuineness in him, in wanting and fighting for my rights and for my best interest; he pursued every avenue in achieving this. I cannot recommend Mark Copley highly enough!
Emma Truin develops strong supportive and understanding relationships with her clients and their families; she goes to see them at home rather than making appointments in her office. She is confident and persuasive in her dealings with other lawyers, whilst always being professional, polite and well mannered. But she can also be hard-nosed and effective when seeking the best settlements for her clients. She is approachable and well-liked, and respected by everyone with whom she works. That is the type of negotiator I would want on my side!
Thank you Daryl Robinson and Barr Ellison Solicitors for an outstanding service. You worked extremely hard for me resulting in the best outcome for my personal injury claim. I felt supported throughout a very difficult period and this has made a hugely positive impact on my life.
Mark Copley is ‘a rising star at the firm, who does a very good job on high-value claims‘.

My brother Andrew's personal injury claim had complicating factors and Robert Curry's professionalism and kindness over a prolonged period has been much appreciated.
It is almost 2 years since my accident and I wanted to thank you for all your hard work which was thorough and diligent. I would and will recommend you to anyone who needs a personal injury lawyer.
I cannot praise Barr Ellison's personal injury team too highly. I would without any hesitation recommend their personal injury service to any prospective client. I always felt that we received a very supportive and personal service and were treated with a great deal of respect. The overall level of service was excellent. We were kept informed on a regular basis by email, letter, telephone conversation and face to face meetings. The firm appointed independent, professional experts to offer specialist advice and testimony on matters relating to the case. The advice was totally relevant and went a long way in achieving a satisfactory end to proceedings. Emma Truin was completely professional in the way she handled the case. She was friendly, approachable and always available to answer questions. She provided constant reassurance and was very knowledgeable on legal matters and throughout proceedings Emma dealt with matters promptly and efficiently. She instilled trust and confidence in all our dealings.
You have been a friend, a colleague and a great supporter of Headway Cambridgeshire and all that we do.
Daryl took on Gerry’s case and guided me quietly and kindly through the process we were to follow, all the way up to 4 June 2014 when he rang to tell us our claim had been settled. Gerry has benefitted from an excellent package of care – to the point of near restoration to the man he was. Thanks to Daryl’s hard work we have ended up with a settlement beyond all our expectations. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend your firm to anyone in a similar situation and I am extremely grateful to the person who signposted me to you in those early days. It was also a big plus for me to be able to fit in visits to your office around my long hours at the bedside at Addenbrooke's.
Money surely cannot replace the loss but Robert Curry's help in our personal injury case has been crucial and has ensured not only our father's comfort but also the security and stability of the whole family.
Mark Copley ‘has a gentle touch with clients and can lull even the most obstreperous opponent into a false sense of security’

I really appreciated your help and guidance throughout my personal injury claim. I always felt confident that it was being dealt with properly and it was reassuring to leave it to you and your team and not worry about finer details. It is nice to get a good resolution to this business.
Thank you for all your hard work on this case, Daryl [Robinson]. We are very pleased with the way you managed the whole thing and a big thank you on behalf of Stella in terms of the great care she received following this dreadful accident. She would not have recovered so quickly if it wasn't for you.

Thank you for all your work in getting my personal injury claim sorted. I will recommend you to anyone who needs your services in the future.
Thank you Robert Curry for your patience and thoroughness throughout this difficult episode in my life, which I am sure has led to a higher personal injury compensation figure than I would have achieved elsewhere.
Daryl Robinson has been fantastic throughout my claim. Knowing that I had someone this good in my corner while I was recovering from my injury was so reassuring. He fought hard for a good settlement, and secured compensation that I felt was fair. At the same time, he's very reassuring and calm, as well as efficient and well organised - all the things you need in a very stressful situation. I can't recommend him highly enough.
Dr Caroline Burt
Emma, I scarcely know where to start in thanking you and Barr Ellison for the way you have supported and helped me through one of the most difficult periods of my life. I think that without your empathy and understanding, coming to terms with my life after the accident, learning to adapt to new circumstances and being able to look forwards to the future positively would almost certainly not have happened. For that I will always be grateful. I can only thank you from the bottom of my heart and send every good wish for your future. You are a very special person and I have been exceptionally fortunate to have your support.
Our thanks to Robert Curry for picking up our road accident case in difficult circumstances. We wish that we had come to you first.
Andy & Michelle Cummins
My grandson has received his money all safely in the bank. Thank you so much Daryl for all your work on his behalf. He now has the means to go forward. We can hope for a better future.
We will be forever grateful to you Emma for your support, advice and sensitivity throughout the lengthy process, and wish you all the very best. We certainly know who to recommend!
Mr P Byatt
I am writing this reference in my capacity as an Independent Occupational Therapist and Brain Injury Case Manager. I have been a practising Occupational Therapist for 26 years and within this time have also practised as Brain Injury Case Manager for 17 years. I have worked alongside Emma on and off for approximately 10 years in relation to compensation claims where we have been mutually acting on a client's behalf, Emma in her capacity as a Solicitor and myself in my capacity as a Case Manager. I believe that the world of litigation for families who are acting in their loved ones' best interest can be quite intimidating. Not only are family members or a client’s representative trying to come to terms with the catastrophic and life changing effects of a brain injury but they are also trying to work through a compensation process that will secure the very best outcome for their loved one. It is therefore absolutely crucial that solicitors working within this field have a remarkable quality about them that ensures family members can immediately trust the solicitor who is acting on their behalf and that of their loved one. Emma Truin possesses this ability, she has outstanding warmth of character, she is sympathetic and listens carefully to what her clients and their families and carers are telling her. She is tremendously professional and understands the importance of consistent communication and updates for clients and their loved ones who represent them. Emma is clearly aware that the process of going through a litigation claim can be stressful, upsetting and at times confusing. She is always there and has another remarkable quality of being able to explain what is happening and what is going to happen. I believe that Emma provides calmness and clarity and reassures her clients and their loved ones 100% that they are in safe hands.
A huge thank you, Robert, for all your hard work and dedication with Dad’s case over the past few years. You have been brilliant!
Bron and Oscar Stratton
Having settled my daughter’s case after 4½ long years, I have been most impressed by Daryl Robinson’s professionalism, compassion, patience, understanding and occasional humour despite the challenges faced with us residing half way across the world in Australia. Daryl’s ability to explain in layman’s terms the complexities of the legal process and associated terms have been exceptional. This has also supported me as my daughter Rachel’s litigation friend in making informed decisions in discussion with her.
Thanks very much for the representation of the case, Daryl. I am very pleased with the outcome and the interaction that we have had over the last 6 months.
