“Let’s be honest, embarking on a medical negligence claim is not for the faint-hearted – you need to be brave. In an ideal world, nobody should have to go through this. But after plucking up some courage, I embarked on this journey with Sally Gleeson and the rest of her team at Turner Freeman. They were patient and diligent, and always treated me with respect and dignity. I felt lucky to have them on my team. I am extremely grateful for the outcome and pleased to now put it behind me and move on with my life.”

Throughout the whole process Sally was empathetic, but also totally honest and upfront about the complexities of medical negligence legislation. Despite my case being very difficult and challenging, Sally never gave up on me. I had lost a lot of trust in people given my medical experience, however Sally has assisted in rebuilding this trust, by being kind; listening to my story and treating me like a human being. My family and I have a much better future thanks to Sally and her team.”

Turner & Freeman were recommended to us by another lawyer, and it is now clear why. Their professionalism, experience and attention to detail is second to none. They took their time to listen to us and thoroughly research our case. They did everything to make the whole process as stress free as it can be. We felt completely comfortable with Sally as one does with a close friend. She was cautious not to overpromise but importantly she overdelivered in regard to the compensation that we received. We highly recommended her expertise to anybody who was a victim of medical negligence.
