“The service offered has been most professional, they always respond promptly (often out of hours). Commercially astute, providing a clear and concise advice, keeping me well informed of developments and a balanced approach to explaining options. The team is knowledgeable and experienced – they deal with all issues in meticulous detail and ensure common sense approach is taken to choices/ options. Their rates are more than competitive for a city centre practice. Their greatest advantage is the personal approach – they care about each client; whilst providing a professional service.”
“I just wanted to say thank you for today’s webinar – I thought your approach was wonderful and I learnt more in the half an hour webinar than the hours I have spent researching the topic!”

Andy Boyde was very helpful helping me sort out my employment issue.
Emma Cartlidge (Employment Solicitor) and the Team were absolutely fantastic to work with. Clear communication/informative. She got the job done to an exceptional standard and was very quick about it. Thank you so much, you were amazing! 🙂
Excellent service from Laura Clapton guiding me through a difficult divorce process. Super efficient, professional and carries out the work with understanding and compassion for your situation. Would highly recommend and have already recommended.
Superb professional, supportive & friendly service by Laura and her colleagues.
Their responses to both emails and telephone calls were quick and precise.
I could and not of asked for a better service during a very difficult period, and would not hesitate to use again.
Consilia were fantastic helping me deal with a redundancy issue. They were helpful and professional. Really put my mind at ease knowing I had their help
I recently had occasion to require the services of an employment lawyer and was recommended to this firm by a professional colleague. I have dealt with many lawyers around the world in the most complex business transactions and personally. I can honestly say I have never received the level of consideration and service from any other legal firm to match that of Consilia Legal. From the moment they picked up the phone to my initial call to the matter being finalised in record quick time; their service and attention to detail was never less than exemplary. Their legal advice was also spot on. It is extraordinary to see this level of service across every aspect of a business and it is a huge credit to Marie Walsh and her team (especially Emma Cartlidge) that they are all able to make their clients feel so welcome and so cared for. I would heartily recommend them to anyone.
When I found myself requiring legal advice for an employment issue Victoria was definitely the best choice. Victoria was very responsive extremely professional and explained the process to me in a clear and easy to understand manner. She made what could have been a stressful situation an easy and straight forward process. Highly recommend!
I found Consilia on LinkedIn when having trouble with own ET. Victoria was my assigned solicitor and she was amazing. She guided me, lobbied on my behalf and gave me emotional support when I was feeling angry, upset or defeated. She gave me a metaphorical hand to hold and guided me through the bureaucracy.
I would highly recommend Consilia Legal. Their staff are professionals with compassion and understanding. I can honestly say, I would not be heading to ET without them.
Thank you so much!
Working with Andy Boyde was just what I needed, a person who could respond quickly, professionally and get to the crooks of the matter and explain in plain English what it all meant and what we needed to do.
Great experience and customer service just when you need.
I would highly recommend Andy and Consilia to anyone.
Professional and received good customer service. I would really recommend them as they helped me to negotiate my way out of a difficult work situation on the best terms possible. Andy was very polite and knowledgable.
Being in a situation where you require legal advice and action in an employment situation is never easy. However Victoria was absolutely fantastic. She didn't skip a beat, she made the law easy to understand around certain actions I could take, and she delivered all of the service in a truly personable yet professional manner. Being in a situation like that can feel so daunting, but having someone like Victoria by your side, you feel invincible.
Thank you again for everything.
Marie, Andy, Victoria and Emma were exceptional in their help, advice and support – all done with a non-nonsense super friendly approach. Really took the stress out of a difficult corporate employment process. I felt safe and confident in their capable hands, recommending them highly.
Thanks so much to Marie and the team for such a top class service for helping me out of a difficult situation. Would recommend to anyone in how quick everything was, always felt like my best interests were taken care of. Marie is truly an outstanding lawyer and wish her all the best!
Laura and the team have been an incredible help in my divorce. Through a very difficult time they have always been on hand to offer exceptional advice and assistance. I have always felt reassured by their professionalism and care. Thank You.
Marie and Matthew have been so professional through knowledge and understanding. Would recommend to anyone needing their expertise.
Highly recommend this team that punches well above its weight. Good leadership, communication & advice. All round pleasure to work with. Have known them for over 6 years and would use them every time.
I had a great service from Laura and her team at Consilia Legal and would certainly recommend them to others. The service was very friendly and informative keeping me up to date in a timely manner and been on hand to offer advice when needed. Thankyou.
Consilia have done a good job of mediating the discussions across family and financial matters. Quick responses, good communication and a helpful/flexible approach.
Sarah Manning was great - really efficient and supportive. I would recommend her to anyone.
Marie and her team are brilliant. They are always professional whilst being personable and great fun to work with. Their updates during the Coronavirus Pandemic have been a lifesaver. Would definitely recommend!
Sarah Manning has been fantastic with our family law matter. She is very good and professional with a very quick response time.
Sarah has put my mind at ease on many occasions, given ongoing support and is attentive to special needs too.
I recommend her services to everyone as she puts her heart into it for you.
I emailed Sarah at Consilia and received a very quick response.
Sarah agreed to call me the following day and called me at the agreed time so no waiting for the call!
Sarah was fantastic, she offered great advice and left me feeling alot more positive and informed on my situation.
I cannot recommend highly enough, professional and caring and highly informative.
Spoke with Andy Boyde for some legal advice, he couldn't personally help me with my case, however he spent 20 minutes of his time on the phone with me offering advice and he followed up by sending me an email with very helpful information.
I would highly recommend Andy, he was professional and very helpful even when the situation wasn't benefitting himself or the business he worked for, so I can only imagine his level of service if it was.
What an excellent service and experience Sarah Mannings at Consillia delivers to both personal and professional clients.
I have been able to send my own clients to Sarah with the peace of mind that they will receive a quality service that is also cost effective. Feedback from them has been that aside from the points mentioned, she is able to 'talk to me clients as person and takes a genuine interest in my circumstances to offer the best solution'.
If you are needing a friendly, reasonable and professional service then Sarah is the person to speak to!
Excellent personal support, advice and understanding from Marie, Emma and the Team, thanks for all you have done.
