My son can now look forward to his future. You fought hard for him, believed in him and you succeeded in getting him a life changing compensation. It’s been a hard, long and emotional road. You have both been amazing and we really appreciate everything you have done. Paul, you have been there throughout it all. You have been patient, supportive and so kind. Thank you again and keep fighting for injured people; what you do really matters to people’s lives.

Just wanted to put down in an email that you have been amazing, and I cannot recommend you and George Ide LLP highly enough.
What was for me a difficult, emotional and stressful situation was made so much easier with your help.
I felt informed, reassured and guided from start to finish, with super fast communication and advice throughout.
You also achieved a great result for me too!
Thanks so much again,
Paul Lewis

I’d like to express my sincere gratitude for all your assistance and advice regarding my mom’s claim. Your support and efforts are greatly appreciated. Ewelina

Alice provided an exceptional service throughout the year and a half that I used her. She worked tirelessly on my behalf while I went through an extremely painful divorce and child separation issues. As well as her diligence and hard work, she demonstrated a compassion towards me, and a human side that showed that she truly cared about my situation. She has been exemplary in every way throughout the time that I have required her services. I recommend her to anyone, particularly anyone going through a painful legal process that requires an empathetic lawyer who treats you like a friend. She was also very good at explaining complex legal issues succinctly, which was incredibly helpful.

I would just like to thank you for all your hard work in settling my father’s case and in coming to an agreeable settlement with the insurers. Thank you for being so patient with us, and taking time to explain things in layman’s terms. You have led us through this process with ease and my father is very happy to have reached a conclusion in this matter . All your efforts are very much appreciated. Wishing you all the best.

Marisa was brilliant from start to finish. We instructed her on both our sale and purchase and she was always quick to respond to our queries. We always felt that nothing was too much trouble, and she really went the extra mile in order to get our completion through as quickly as possible. If you are buying or selling and want efficiency and professionalism from someone who really knows what they are doing, then look no further

Nicholas Smith was highly professional, focused and responsive. He worked to a very tight timetable to
complete the purchase of our house and I would strongly recommend him to prospective clients

I can enthusiastically recommend Alice Leadbeatter/George Ide. I was extremely grateful for the clarity of her communications and for demystifying many of the processes. Alice was prompt in her replies and very professional – both of which were appreciated in navigating a difficult time.

Right from the beginning of my journey to claim for compensation for my injuries after being knocked off my bike by a car driver, Paul Lewis has been a tower of strength. His advice, guidance and care in ensuring my claim proceeded smoothly has been First Class. Always promptly keeping me informed of progress by email. A friendly, compassionate listening ear when needed to my worries and concerns. Helping and guiding me every step of the way. I have received the best possible advice throughout, resulting in an excellent outcome, expertly and tenaciously negotiated for me by Paul. Thank You.

Paul Lewis

Alice has always replied promptly to emails/telephone calls. She was extremely helpful and made the whole process go smoothly. I would definitely recommend her to anyone thinking of a divorce.

Alice Leadbeatter

Thank you for your continued support and due diligence. I accept it is business for you but the challenging way this sale has progressed from beginning to now has been made somewhat more comfortable due to your help and advice.

Lynsey Sizmur-Hall

Thank you seems such a trivial word and yet without your tenacity, we would not be here today. For all the medical providers you sought out and your words of stability at each and every stage I cannot thank you enough. You will never know how much of a difference you have made, without your constant reassurance and steps of transition to medical assistance especially during Covid I know I would not be at this stage on my journey.

Paul Lewis

Maddie was incredibly helpful throughout the whole process.

were very efficient in delivering documents and always cordial. Absolute
pleasure to work with. Anon.

Thank you so much Danii for all your work on this and the other sale, we really appreciated all your guidance and hard work. Also very many thanks to Stephanie for all her help along the way.

I was involved in a traffic accident as a pedestrian, being hit by a car. My family were recommended to George Ide regarding personal injury, and what a great choice this turned out to be. Words can’t express how thankful and grateful I am for the service and support that I received from everyone at George Ide. My case was handled by Paul Fretwell with the help of Karen Jenkins, and the genuine kindness, care, and professionalism that they provided throughout my claim from start to finish was second to none. The experience of Paul and his team really shone through, and this was obvious from the very start when I first met Paul for an initial chat at home. The thoroughness and dedication to getting me the best possible outcome was clear throughout. Paul fought to the nail making sure that no stone was unturned, this allowing me to feel less anxious and to be able to concentrate on getting physically and mentally better. For anyone that goes through a traumatic event, the support from the people around you is key, Paul and his team were no exception to this, and I felt that I had a true friend and ally on my side. George Ide and Paul should be the first port of call to someone in need of a personal injury solicitor, I can’t recommend them enough!

Ian Oliver and Paul Lewis of George Ide Solicitors, and their appointed barrister, were outstanding in helping us defend an HMO licensing prosecution by a local authority. This was a complex matter which should never have been taken to trial by the local authority. However, thanks to the care, knowledge and tenacity shown by George Ide, the correct judgment was given. Thanks again for guiding us through this stressful experience.

Ian Oliver / Paul Lewis

Alice was reassuring, kind, easy to talk to, very clear in her advice and very efficient. What more does anyone need?

Alice Leadbeatter

Thank you for all your effort and excellent advice and work in this matter. It’s very much appreciated and I will certainly use you and your firm again in the future should I require legal services.

Paul Lewis

I contacted George Ide LLP by recommendation when my husband was involved in a severe accident as a pedestrian almost 4 years ago. In the very early days Paul Fretwell visited us at home and was an immense support through what turned out to be a very difficult case. Paul immediately knew my husband’s injuries were life-changing and throughout he dealt with it in the most holistic way possible, including instructing the best counsel and experts, to ensure the most positive outcome for us.
Paul takes a practical and pragmatic, but supportive approach. For the duration of our claim he was unfailingly responsive, always communicating legal detail clearly and concisely, which was important given my husband’s cognitive restrictions and fatigue issues. We would absolutely recommend Paul and George Ide LLP to anyone dealing with the legal aftermath of a severe accident.
