Making Clients Happy – Mark’s Testimonials

“Mark Lafferty totally transformed what was an incredibly negative experience – being wrongly let go for gross negligence. Within half an hour I had been reassured. I walked away with my reputation intact, and a redundancy package that far exceeded my expectations.”

“I recently used DPH Legal, I found them to be efficient and very helpful. They were sympathetic towards my case. I would like to thank Mark Lafferty and the rest of the DPH team for their assistance with my case and for delivering a great result.”

“I received outstanding service from Mark at DPH Legal when dealing with my employer: the clear explanation given about the process and the guidance about what could be expected was invaluable in negotiating a more satisfactory settlement. Disputes are, by definition, stressful but a swift response underpinned with extensive professional expertise goes a long way to alleviating the pressure and providing reassurance. Although my case was relatively straightforward, I always felt my interests were a priority. Very impressive customer service: Many thanks.”
