Read what some of our clients have to say…
  • Just a quick thank-you note for the professional and speedy way that you settled my compensation claim. I must admit that I am impressed with the way the case was handled, and to achieve such a large sum, in such a short time was amazing. I would not hesitate to recommend your services to any colleagues that may need someone in the future, so once again Thank-you.

    Mr Holling, Worksop
  • I would like to thank you very much for your first class handling of my injury claim. As you know, I broke my wrist in January and had engaged another firm of Solicitors to handle my claim for over 2 and a half years during which time they got nowhere and advised me that I would not be able to succeed. However, I was fortunate enough to contact Mr. Richard Long, who agreed to have a look at my file from the previous solicitors and then decided to take my case on. Within a matter of 2 months, Mr Richard Meggitt was able to obtain for me an out of court settlement, plus the fee for the medical report which my previous solicitors had made me pay for. Needless to say I am absolutely delighted by the result which you obtained and by your total professionalism in this matter. I would not hesitate in recommending ASD to anyone who has a claim for personal injury.

    Mr Hay, Rotherham
  • With heartfelt thanks for all your kindness and support. It’s been a long couple of years but your help has been much appreciated. Thank you so much

    Mrs Jackson, Rotherham
  • I was delighted to receive my cheque and would like to give my thanks to all involved and I would not hesitate to use your company again but highly recommend not only for the success of my claim but my first interview with Richard Long who treated me with respect and was aware of my concerns and worries.

    Mrs Haslam, Notts
  • I am writing to thank you for the valuable assistance and care that you gave me with my recent Accident Claim. The courtesy and help that I received from your firm is certainly much appreciated and the speed and efficiency with which the case was dealt with is very gratifying. So, I thank you most sincerely for the way I was dealt with and for the very satisfactory result.

    Mr Maxfield, Sheffield
  • I would like to send you and your firm my thanks for everything that you did to bring my claim to a successful conclusion. I have to admit that I was very sceptical about the whole no win no fee system, after hearing of horror stories of people actually receiving nothing. My faith was restored with the way you handled and won my claim and I will not hesitate in recommending you and ASD to others.

    Mr Allcock, Lincoln
  • May I thank you for your negotiations on my behalf over the past 15 months re my successful accident claim. Your professional efforts are very much appreciated resulting in Ralph’s final successful settlement.

    G Nicholson, Ecclesfield
  • I would like to acknowledge receipt of the cheque which you sent to my mum in settlement of her accident claim. Thank you very much for all the help you have given her over the last few months. Also I would like to thank Julie Watts who was very helpful and understanding especially with the frustrations we had with Zurich!

    Marjorie, Cleethorpes
  • I am writing to offer my thanks for representing me during the last year after being involved in a car accident, receiving injuries after a car drove into the back of my car whilst stationary at a roundabout. I have had no problems at all and everything has run smoothly, resulting in being awarded compensation for my injuries, medical costs and additional motor insurance I had initially paid. Thanks again for your time and I would happily recommend ASD to anyone I knew who found themselves in the unfortunate event of being involved in an accident.

    Mr Fallis, South Yorkshire
    South Yorkshire
  • Thank you for your letter enclosing the cheque for £19489 in full settlement of my accident claim. I would like to thank you and your Company for all the help, assistance and guidance in dealing with this matter and for bringing the matter to a satisfactory conclusion. I have no hesitation in recommending your company to my friends etc. who may find themselves requiring your assistance.

    Mrs A, Sheffield
