Peter is the firm’s Welfare Benefits adviser and a qualified solicitor. Peter has always had an interest in disability and equality rights, which stems from family circumstances and which led to him becoming a solicitor.
He has worked predominantly in the public and charitable sectors previously. This included working for six years as a Caseworker for the Disability Rights Commission and five years as a Welfare Benefits Peer Reviewer for the Legal Services Commission.
As an avid Manchester City fan and Sunday league footballer himself, Peter loves to watch the game at the weekend. His perfect day would involve him being in a pub drinking Hydes bitter after another City success. In fact, Peter’s dream job would be a striker for Man City, regularly scoring goals.
Another of Peter’s likes are films and if he was stranded on a desert island he would take a portable DVD player along with some of his favourite films: Dead Man’s Shoes, The Big Lebowski and Apocalypse Now.
Thank you for all you have done for 'M' and our family Peter. We are deeply indebted to your great professionalism, compassion and kindness. You have made such a difference to our lives and given M a secure future.
I would definitely recommend PotterReesDolan as the service is brilliant and I have recommended to friends in the past and they have also been very pleased and have recommended to other people. The case which Peter Renshaw has done for me is unbelievable and Peter won. I would recommend Peter who is a brilliant person to do their case. I recommend the company as well as I know they specialise in head injury. Stay as you are - a very caring company - thank you for all the hard work you do and your understanding of the problems I have. Thank you.
Mr D, Stalybridge
PotterReesDolan were very efficient and were very sensitive to my needs and condition. From start to finish, they dealt with all the paperwork and took the stress and pressure of me. I was extremely satisfied with the outcome. You did a fantastic job and I couldn't ask for a better, more professional Solicitors. I just want to say a big thank you to Peter Renshaw for everything he has done. he is a fantastic asset to the PotterReesDolan team
Mrs F, Cheadle Hulme
The service was first class. Peter kept in touch on a daily basis during what was a very stressful time. Through his expertise, our case was resolved very quickly. Peter worked on our case pro-bono. For this and all the work he undertook on our behalf, I cannot thank him enough. I am aware that, had we had to pay,as it was very time-consuming work, the coss would have been prohibitive. Both my son and I will never be able to thank him enough!
Mrs D, Chorlton
As you can imagine, it is a huge relief, both from a financial point of view and from the point of view of not having to go to the job centre for interviews, I can start getting on with my life at my own pace without any pressure. Peter, many many thanks for all the work you're putting into supporting me, I appreciate it a lot.
Mrs Davies, Sheffield
Thank you so much for all your help and support with this Peter. Without your help we would have really struggled and most certainly would not have had a successful tribunal, no one else in this process has been as helpful as you and we really appreciate it.
Mrs P, Cheshire
Peter has a good understanding of the nature of the problems I've had with my sickness benefit and how to deal with the forms. He has worked extremely hard, both this year and two years when I had similar problems to get my case sorted out. Without Peter's help, I would have struggled. Both times the appeal decision has gone in my favour - which is a great relief!
Mr F, Greater Manchester
My husband's case was referred to Peter through Headway South Cumbria. Peter has been extremely helpful and patient explaining all the possible outcomes and benefits. He was very supportive when Vinny had to return to work but was then found unfit to continue. We have both been very pleased with the support and advice and would like to pass on our grateful thanks.
Paula and Vinny, Lancashire
Peter, I would recommend you to someone else because the help we received was very good and I don't know what we would have done without it. Thank you very much.
Mrs Y, Stockport
I have been very impressed with the high standard of service and professionalism of the staff and am very encouraged going forward.
Mrs D, Cumbria
Staff at PotterReesDolan were supportive, understanding, knowledgeable and were prompt with their responses and all the literature provided was very informative. Without the help of Peter Renshaw and Headway, my son and the family would still be struggling financially and emotionally. With their help and guidance we have been able to secure new accommodation and rectify the benefits that were wrongly withdrawn from my son.
Mr W, Cheadle
Free, efficient, quick, methodical, detailed, committed, friendly. Did not need to be local. Peter was continually interested even after my current conclusions. Did not attempt to take me away from Citizens Advice Bureau but complimented them as I was far away.
Mr Farrant, Basingstoke
Peter was extremely thorough when providing information and advice and was very efficient with regard to responding to emails and queries.
Miss B, Denton
With multiple problems in recent years with illness, in and out of hospital, anxiety and mental health issues, with no knowledge of where and how to get help and the complex benefits system, I don’t know what I would have done without Peter’s help.
I have never met anyone that has been so dedicated, hard-working and professional but still kept a sense of humility. Both Peter and Carol, his secretary, have work so hard to help me and others, especially the vulnerable and isolated, I cannot comment you enough. I am forever grateful.
There is nothing that could be done to improve the level of service that Peter provides, unless there was a way of cloning him as many people would benefit from his invaluable help. Both Peter and Carol go beyond the duties of the job and they are a credit to PotterReesDolan – I cannot thank them enough!
Mrs S, Glossop
PotterReesDolan and Peter Renshaw in particular gave fantastic communication and were helpful in terms of explaining things. He made me feel very confident and I was able to rely on very good advice. I don't think the level of service can be improved upon. The service provided was very professional and I would definitely recommend anyone to this firm. Thank you to all the help and advice provided to me.
All the dealings I have had with this firm have always resulted in positive results. I need to point out the professionalism of your staff, even if you are extremely busy, you always find time to communicate and put me at ease regarding any queries I may have. I know I would not have achieved the same conclusions without the help and advice I have been given and the hard work carried out by Peter Renshaw.
The judge dealing with my Hearing made reference to PotterReesDolan and stated that this input made the appeal so much quicker and clearer in respect of dealing with the points that Peter put forward. The help has been invaluable and I could never thank you enough.
