Hi David, please allow me to take this opportunity to thank you for all you’ve done sorting out my late Aunt’s Intestacy. I’m sure her Estate is nothing compared to some that you deal with but I do know it came with numerous issues of complexity. Sorting this out is not our skill set so we know we made the right choice in asking you to deal with this from the outset for our family. You’ve been steady, fair and proactive throughout and your professionalism has been absolutely impeccable so from myself and my family, thank you for all you’ve done for us. Michael C, Sussex- June 2018
“David dealt with my mother’s personal injury claim following an accident and who is in her mid- 80’s. David was all times very professional, courteous and easy to deal with. He kept on top of the case and achieved a really good result for my mother. He also did not take any costs from the award and never sought to meaning my mother received her compensation in full.
We found David very trustworthy and straightforward and we have no hesitation in recommending him.” Mr J Bostridge Jan 2018
"I was awarded more than double the amount of compensation to what I was actually expecting. I also kept 100% of my award and David managed to achieve this while most other solicitors were trying to persuade me to use them but at the cost of having a Success Fee of 25% off whatever compensation I was awarded being paid to them.
David handled my claim in a very personal and professional manner from day one to final settlement and I felt like I was completely involved in the whole process and that my views were always given paramount importance whenever decisions had to be taken. I would not hesitate to recommend Crosby & Woods Solicitors to my friends and family if ever they need legal advice."
J Thorley, Sussex
"The service provided by David was faultless, I was always made to feel supported and communication was constant and clear. I got an amazing result without feeling as though I had to do much at all. Highly recommended."
Miss A Friel
"I can honestly say that for the first time I have been entirely happy with the services of a Solicitor! May I thank you David for your most friendly, helpful and successful work on my behalf in my personal injury claim."
Ms A. Lalor, Brighton
"I would most definitely use David and the firm again. I was quite amazed at how smoothly and easily everything was handled, I felt I was being treated as a personal friend."
Mr Cyril Mount, Brighton
"My cleaning company based in Brighton suffered a bad debt, as a result of a customer cancelling their contract before in ended. Mr. Crosby dealt with the matter very efficiently, resulting in a satisfactory settlement being reached. I was impressed that my calls were returned promptly and that all enquiries were dealt with in a very efficient and professional manner."
Mark Vroobel - Director, Brighton
"Letters, calls and emails replied to on same day – frankly very impressed and very pleased too as that’s not my past experience of other firms."
'Dealing direct with my solicitor at all times, rather than a secretary or assistant taking messages – well that was most unusual but a very pleasant change indeed!"
Mr. C. M, Brighton
"Plain English, no airs and graces, just sensible and practical legal advice that sees the bigger picture and how to achieve the desired result with the least amount of stress."
J Harwood, Brighton
"The service I received was exceptional and significantly superior to any I’ve experienced in the past – thank you"
"I hope of course that the need to instruct a solicitor again on a personal injury claim does not arise but if it did I would know that I was in safe and capable hands at all times at this firm."
Mrs C Vinton, London
