Mrs Lacy, Bolton
Helen Shaw and her team are the best - always kept me updated with the progress of my case. Even when I was unsure, she would take the time out to explain everything to me. Thank you Helen and all your team, you've helped me through the last three and a half years. You can't improve on perfection.

Helen Shaw's demeanor is incredibly welcoming and warm but you know that underneath she has the knowledge, expertise and the drive to do her very best to get as much as she can from the case. She is extremely professional and hardworking and it helps that everyone that she met whilst taking statements said that she was incredible. She has totally challenged the stereotype of a lawyer. I have had a traumatic brain injury and Helen's knowledge and understanding through her experience with Headway has been invaluable. She always explained things in a way I could understand because of the complications of my recovery. Thank you!
