Charlotte is an excellent employment lawyer. When helping me recently, Charlotte was at all times professional, responsive, and supportive. Her advice is extremely clear and pragmatic owing to her extensive experience. I can highly recommend her
I found Charlie by word of mouth because I had never used one before other than for a house sale, so I asked someone I trusted for a referral. I was ill and anxious because of work and the thought of seeing a solicitor was very frightening, but Charlie is smart and warm and understanding. She managed to unravel all the strands of my story until she has extracted everything. Then she was able to identify all the important points. When I read her summary I felt validated. She briefed me before important meetings so that I went into them strong and confident. At every stage we discussed all the options,scenarios and possible outcomes, and talked through every decision. I describe Charlie to everyone as my Champion – someone who defends my honour and fights for me. I didn’t have to be strong because she is. I have been able to. Stand up for myself and maintain dignity and I have come out of this feeling so much better about myself, my life and my future. I hope to never need a champion again but if I do I will go straight to Charlie.
We had a thought provoking and interesting day when Jake and the team from Schofield & Associates came to visit the practice to provide us with training on Equality & Diversity. As a large dental practice with a diverse group of patients and team members it was a really valuable and thought provoking exercise to us all and we have all learnt something from the day. The training was engaging and interesting and thoroughly enjoyed by the team. We would recommend this to any organisation wanting to put people at the heart of what it does!
“Eileen was highly recommended to me by several people and I now understand why she and her company are held in such high regard. Eileen provided not just professional advice but a ‘hand holding service’ talking us through each stage and explaining, clearly, the situation and potential outcomes. At a time when you need robust advice, a clear mind and someone who can distill a difficult situation with clarity, Eileen was always there and responded to queries at any time of the day and night.
“Working with Schofield & Associates is very much a partnership approach. They’re intelligent, values driven, professional; just what you need from a legal adviser.”
Elisabeth Lewis- Jones
CEO We Are Liquid Pr
My employer had suggested an early retirement settlement agreement which looked reasonable to me. As I had used Eileen before I asked her opinion of what had been proposed. She very quickly responded with a number of very helpful adjustments which resulted in a very different and much more favourable outcome for me and my employer! A very pleasing outcome. Once again it proved the value of using a specialist employment lawyer rather than a high street ‘jack of all trades’.
John Miller, former Director Tipton & Coseley Building Society
Schofield & Associates provided us with integral support during the launch of our business. They were extremely proactive and were able to guide us through complex legal issues with ease. Their service was second to none and provided excellent value for money – we have already recommended them to a range of our clients and business associates, and will continue to do so.
Schofield & Associates has provided us with clear and professional advice and respected their proposed time schedule. I will work with them again without hesitation.
Eileen Schofield has acted for me during the past 12 months culminating in a successful Employment Tribunal. Eileen advised me of my position with my employer while I was suspended from work and during my disciplinary hearing. Following my dismissal and during the Employment Tribunal process Eileen advised me of the options available to me and the best course of action to take. My case was high profile and attracted both public and press interest and at times was difficult due to the actions of my employer. Eileen not only corresponded with my employer on my behalf but also supported and assisted with managing the press interest. Her guidance and choice of counsel for the Employment Tribunal was invaluable and again her support got me through what was a daunting experience.
Along with her colleagues Eileen made what was at times an extremely stressful and worrying period manageable through her support and practical advice. Her realistic approach was vital when making decisions and allowed me to see the whole picture concerning my situation. Eileen also assisted with job applications I was compiling following my dismissal and helped me deal with my situation with potential new employers.
My success at the Employment Tribunal was down to Eileen’s diligent work over the previous 12 months and I am very grateful for this.
Having contacted Sarah at Schofield and Associates with an urgent employment matter, I was met with an immediate, professional and courteous response. My business was concluded in a timely and exemplary fashion and I cannot recommend Sarah highly enough.
Good efficient service, all questions answered promptly and sensible cost!
