Client testimonials (not exclusive)

‘The service that you provided was superb and the outcome due primarily to the case that you put together …

You were realistic, and incredibly supportive in what were very difficult times for me.

You were recommended to me by a friend of mine, …, and getting in contact with you was probably the best decision I have made in many years.’

- Mr P Wells

‘We/I have worked with Marc Jones since 2009 and have always found that he quickly gets to the core of the problem and provides sound solutions or options. His extremely prompt advice is thorough, helpful and explained in layman’s terms when needed. We have found the seminars on employment law run by Marc and his team to be both practical and enlightening and a very beneficial bonus to us as a Turbervilles' client, as are the regular http://www.mindanews.com/buy-effexor/newsletters. I would thoroughly recommend Marc Jones and Turbervilles to any SME needing guidance through the complex mine field of employment legislation.’

- Nikki Evans, HR Manager AIT Limited

‘My experience with Turbervilles has been on two different areas. The first is their informative and easy to understand seminars and materials one area of which are the newsletters which enables the delivery of the important case law or changes in legislation in a practical way. The second is in the use of their legal expertise through Marc Jones (at Turbervilles) who always provides constructive advice whilst aware of business timelines and potential constraints. I would highly recommend them.’

- Alison Peck, UK & Ireland Human Resources Executive Future Electronics Limited

 ‘The training was professionally delivered but was delivered in clear (non-legal), easily understandable sections. The Q & A feedback was very helpful. Marc Jones addressed all our questions and queries promptly and the presentation was pitched perfectly.’
