Client Testimonials

  • A very compassionate and caring solicitor, works effectively for and with brain injured clients.

    Client of Paul Brown

  • Thank you for all your help and expertise and for getting my husbands claim settled. I thank you so much you have been wonderful and so have all the lovely ladies in the office.

    Client of Spencer Knaggs

  • Megan Hughes looked after me all the way through. So kind to me explaining things I wasn't sure about or didn't understand. Megan is an asset to Burnetts.

    Client of Megan Hughes

  • "Paul is an exceptional person. I’ve known him for a number of years because of his work across the north of England and his support for my clients living with a brain injury. He is a skilled legal advocate with a most supportive and empathetic approach. He is hugely well respected and a great supporter of smaller groups like mine, in remote areas. He communicates extremely well and his role with UKABIF nationally has been both innovative and politically skilful. We were delighted when he came to Burnetts with whom we already had strong connections".

    Glenys Marriott Chair of Headway South Cumbria, Trustee Cumbria Victims Charitable Trust & Cumbria Community Foundation and Board Member of Lancashire and South Cumbria Critical Care and Major Trauma Network

  • My son was a passenger in a car accident, which caused a serious spinal and brain injury. We wanted a specialist solicitor and after research I contacted Burnetts. After an initial meeting with Spencer at our home, we instructed him to take on the claim as we felt confident that he would be successful in getting the rehabilitation and support our son needs.

    We are happy with the continuing service and guidance that Spencer is providing and feel well supported throughout this difficult process.

    Client of Spencer Knaggs

  • “When I think about experts in our field of acquired brain injury, the first name that comes to mind is Paul's. He (seemingly) tirelessly advocates on behalf of his clients and provides outstanding support for people living with brain injury generally supporting Headway and UKABIF in so many ways. It's always a pleasure to have chance to work together”.

    Andrew Bateman Chair of UKABIF and Reader, School of Health and Social Care at University of Essex; Director, NIHR East of England Research Design Service

  • A big thank you, top work all round.

    Client of Paul Brown

  • Thank you so much for all your hard work and much needed support throughout this difficult time. We'll never forget your kindness.

    Client of Michelle Armstrong

  • Thank you very much for all your hard work much appreciated by all of us

    Client of Paul Brown

  • Spencer was very helpful and gave good, clear advice. Megan dealt with my questions and she was fantastic, really helpful and quick to respond. I would absolutely recommend Burnetts to others.

    Patrick Gorrill

  • Extraordinary attention to the detail of my case - I felt my case was important to them despite it not being a case that would bring in much revenue for them. I was treated with respect and kindness and the wealth of knowledge and experience Paul Brown showed in terms of traumatic brain injury cases was extremely impressive. I recommend them unreservedly.
