Testimonials

“I would like to thank Navraj for her professionalism. Not only did she do everything she said she would in the timescale given, but I found her to be honest and accurate in her advice. From beginning to end, I felt comfortable and secure with her judgement and I have nothing but praise for the service I received.”

Miss Hobbs

When I first spoke with Navraj, I was extremely ill with depression and anxiety. At all times, Navraj explained every step of the way - what will happen next and was more than versed in how to deal with someone who was as ill as I was at the time of our introduction. At any point that involved a legal process deadline, Navraj would explain this and would give as much reasonable time in order not to exacerbate my condition and has the ability to speak calmly and clearly to explain her requirements.

At all times Navraj communicated timescales and milestones and set expectations whether they were what I wanted to hear or not she was always totally honest and up front in her dealings with me. Navraj puts her client’s needs at the forefront and she delivers what she says what she will deliver – to be clear, it’s not about necessarily what you want or what you expect in your head – it’s what she realistically knows what result can or cannot be achieved. Regardless she will deliver.

Navraj is an outstanding solicitor and worked above and beyond in terms of hours and commitment to me as a client. I would trust her with any other case in a professional sense and as an individual her tenacity and work ethic is a force to be reckoned with.

Navraj builds a trusting relationship very early on and I feel like after over a year of litigation she is a ‘friend/ confidant’ and I mean that in the professional sense. I can honestly state Navraj is a legal person with a heart.

Navraj is not to be underestimated and I believe this is one of her major strengths. I can also honestly state that this softly spoken, kind, gentle self-effacing lady showed her steel and that’s her strength. She is one smart lady who should not be underestimated as she is clever enough to know when to show her teeth.

Understated not to be underestimated, honest, reliable, straightforward, kind and understanding. I would never hesitate in recommending Navraj to anyone needing legal representation in her field.

Annonymous Claimant Client

We engaged the services of Navraj in response to an ET claim. We were extremely pleased with the exceptional and thorough communication received throughout. Navraj brought a calming and balanced view to our defence and was successful in the outcome. From my perspective, having the support of such a professional meant that I could get back to the running of the business without too much disruption.

Mr Crabb, Managing Director, Cambridge Online Systems Limited

I would like to thank Mrs Navraj Rai for the extremely high level of professional service provided resulting in a successful, beneficial reconciliation. This involved very efficient monitoring and co-ordination of the procedures and communications directed towards a variety of relevant parties (including myself) which I was not otherwise aware of and could not have achieved myself.

Also the advice and instruction given directly to myself was invaluable - this included an on-going conveyance of correct procedures and timely alerts and reminders of time-scales and deadlines. This, in turn, involved a lot of patience, reassurance, and inspection of details and interpretations all requiring a great deal of time to evaluate concisely whilst still maintaining quick, in-time responses and completions. Thank you once again for the great deal of help and guidance which concluded with very beneficial results.
