Employment Law
I was being harassed and bullied at work because my team discovered from HR I had HIV. I was humiliated, scared and depressed. Karen worked magic getting me out of the environment and settling on a payment for me, but it was more her compassion and fight that kept me going and has allowed me to face interviews again for a new role. I am in a senior position and have faced many hurdles in life , but this was very personal for me. Karen really does know what she is doing legally but as a support she was a real rock.
Transgender Discrimination
After working for my employer for some 22 years of loyal service I was made redundant without any due notice or suitable settlement agreement. I was in a total shock and dismay with the company attempting to bully me into taking the unsatisfactory settlement. After contacting A City Law Firm they arranged a meeting with myself they immediately made me feel at ease and took over the negotiation with my former employers, they were extremely professional and efficient and achieved a good settlement for minimum cost to myself. As a member of the LGBT+ community I would fully recommend them and although I hope never to need them again I would certainly consult them in the future should the case arise. 2017
Employment Law
I contacted the City Law Firm when I had to confront a very difficult and stressful employment issue. From the moment I entered their offices I was made to feel very comfortable and supported. My solicitor kept me informed of the progress of my case, I found Laura to be very professional and friendly, she gave me advice and very useful guidance when I had to enter meetings with my employers and line managers. The outcome of the situation was very satisfactory. I have moved forward from a very distressful situation and have begun to build a new life for myself with the help and support of Laura. I have advised friends to call the Firm when they find themselves needing legal advice.
Surrogacy is a long, expensive and scary process especially when we were flying to and from the USA. The family team really made us feel as ease, they knew their stuff and the court seamed on their side. They got us everything we needed swiftly and within the budget set. Cannot recommend or thank them enough.

We will not hesitate to use A City Law Firm and their team in the future. 2016
