Consilia Legal Spoke with Andy Boyde for some legal advice, he couldn't personally help me with my case, however he spent 20 minutes of his time on the phone with me offering advice and he followed up by sending me an email with very helpful information. I would highly recommend Andy, he was professional and very helpful even when the situation wasn't benefitting himself or the business he worked for, so I can only imagine his level of service if it was.

Cannot recommend this company enough. Seriously on the ball, ring you back when they say they will and completely exceed expectations. Thank you Andy and all at Consilia. When my autistic son was suspended from work, we felt he had been treated unfairly in the workplace because of his disability and needed help and advice from a specialist employment lawyer.

Consilia Legal were highly recommended to me. I dealt with both Marie and Vicky and I can honestly say they were both amazing. They were both very professional and caring. Initially, I was worried that I would find speaking to a solicitor confusing and complicated but they simplified things so I was able to gain a better understanding of employment law.
