Recent Client Feedback:

Outstanding service: Clarissa Ellerington has been my solicitor for quite a long time now due to the nature of my claim. During this time Clarissa has shown great professionalism, support, understanding and empathy. Clarissa has outstanding knowledge in the work that she delivers. This has been a very important factor for me. Any questions or worries that I may have are always responded to with great detail, in a timely manner and in a way that I can understand and feel confident with. Clarissa has always kept me well informed during each step of my claim via email or telephone call. I always feel at ease when contacting Clarissa with any concerns because i know that she has my best interest at heart. We have gained a very good relationship throughout this process, this is extremely important as this builds up a great deal of trust. I would highly recommend Slee Blackwell Solicitors. They have been an absolute pleasure to work with.


Professional, honest, supportive and empathetic: I moved to Slee Blackwell to continue working with Clarissa Ellerington on my long standing medical negligence case. She took over my case after a very stagnant period where no progress was being made. In the 14 months she has managed it, she has made vast amount of progress. Always giving me good clear advice, communicating always within a timely manner and having an empathetic kind approach to my questions and concerns. I feel 100% confident that Clarissa has my best interests at heart and is working for the best possible outcome for my case. She has now secured a joint settlement meeting, something that 14 months ago seemed so far away to the point I’d actually given up hope. Swapping legal firms is always a hard decision to make, but the team at Slee Blackwell did all the work on my behalf and made the transition easy. Going through a medical negligence case is emotionally draining and more difficult than I ever imagined. Clarissa and the team have made the end of my case less stressful by their levels of communication and answering all my questions no matter how trivial. I’m so glad I went with my gut and swapped legal firms when I did.
