  • Recently, faced with redundancy for the first time in my career, I engaged the services of Ben Mason, who was recommended to me, to assist in negotiating my exit, and am very pleased to have done so.
    Ben’s calm and supportive manner helped me a great deal and his patience in explaining the legalities meant I could be confident both in my decision making and in communicating with my employer more clearly.
    I would strongly recommend the use of Ben’s services to anyone who finds themselves seeking employment legal advice, they will be guaranteed a very professional service as well as a friendly, reassuring and personal one.

  • Ben was able to assist me in a very satisfactory settlement within a 48 hour turn-around. Due to the timescales Ben was willing to provide advice outside of normal working hours, and took me through the process step by step. He was professional and very knowledgeable and assisted me in avoiding some pitfalls that could have been costly. I have no hesitation in recommending Ben.

  • 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.

  • I would highly recommend Schofield & Associates to anyone who finds themselves in the unfortunate position I did in April 2014. Ben Mason dealt with my case, he was extremely professional, personable and understanding, he went to great lengths to go through all the details of my case with me explaining everything step by step. I was greatly encouraged by his professionalism and personable nature, he gave me completely unbiased, sound advice and put me completely at ease. I felt a whole lot better about my predicament by the time I left his office and was able to make a sound decision regarding my next step.

    Fortunately, things were settled swiftly, Ben made sure I got the absolute best possible outcome, keeping me up to date as and when things happened. Losing your job is grim but Schofield’s helped ease the situation. I cannot thank Schofield and Associates enough for how they treated me and dealt with my case. Thankfully, I moved on very quickly to another job and was able to put it all behind me.

    Thank you again.

  • I would highly recommend Ben Mason to anyone in a similar position. I was recommended to him by my sister, who couldn’t sing his praises enough. I put myself in a very difficult position at work, and although I was in fact technically at fault for my dismissal, Ben secured me an outstanding tax-free compensation package, along with references, expenses etc.

    There is a big difference between believing you have a case, and proving it, and Ben was outstanding in explaining all that was involved, and then dealing with the case. He made it clear, not only what could be achieved, but also when I was being unrealistic, in a polite, swift and professional manner.

    I wish him all the best, and know who I’ll be calling if it happens again.

    Mr A.H.

  • Ben assisted me when I left my previous employer last July.
    He was very professional and supportive and addressed all areas of concern in a very tight timescale.
    I have no hesitation in recommending Ben’s services and wish him all the best for the future.
