What our clients say
I was contacted by Andrew Zajac who was to look after my case over the next few months. His professionalism, attention to detail and personal service was first class. I couldn't recommend Leigh Day and Andrew in particular highly enough, excellent service throughout what was a pretty traumatic time, thank you for everything.

What our clients say
I can not thank Leigh Day enough! From the first day I picked up the phone whilst still laying in a Hospital bed unable to walk and not knowing what the future might bring to being fit again, Andrew and his team phoned me with support and the information I needed also with compassion keeping me up to speed with my claim - 10/10 service
