  • As a first time buyer I was faced with a lot of firsts. First mortgage and first time needing a solicitor. With their expert advice and guidance McGale Kelly removed all stress from the process allowing me to concentrate on the tough decisions like colour schemes and which sofa to choose.

  • I suffered discrimination in the workplace and felt my position was left untenable due to the actions of management over a sustained period. Thanks to McGale Kelly I received a compensation package to allow me to continue with my life and most of all give me my dignity back.
