"I couldn't thank you more for what you did for me, I turned my life around after that. You helped me carry on and get through the situation. If it wasn't for Emmersons, I wouldn't be standing where I am now. If I ever needed any advice from a solicitor I would always use Emmersons and would always recommend them. The duty solicitor I had was awful and told me I would get 10 years. You always pushed for answers and I appreciated that you did that for me".

"I am so pleased I came to you, as I have never needed a solicitor before I didn't know what to expect, I felt so nervous. But even on the first day I felt happy when I left as I felt I could talk to you, I was at ease. You were very helpful and a big thank you to my solicitors and the rest of the staff."
Ms EM.

"I was recently found not guilty of two extremely serous sexual offences that would have resulted in me spending the better part of my adult life in jail. My case was extremely complex involving two accusers, My Solicitor John from the Sunderland office could see my innocence and fought passionately to save me, he comforted me through two and a half years of sheer hell and made sure I got the best barrister to represent me. I quite literally owe my life to Johns decision making".
Mr. SG.

"I needed to find a solicitors to represent me in court and after ringing many places I decided to go with Emmersons Sunderland. This was the best choice as the service was second to none from start to finish. I firstly met with John Griffith and I was represented in court by Michael Robinson, both did a great job and I would highly recommend this firm to anyone."
