  • I was recommended to Ben Mason and Schofield & Associates for their expertise being a specialist in employment law.

    I went to Ben for some employment legal advice at first which turned to be definitely the right thing to do engaging their service at the early stage. Ben was available for meetings and phone calls straightaway. He is most knowledgeable, also approachable and supportive. He made me fully aware of my legal position and gave me sound and constructive advice. And later when things unfortunately did escalate Ben assisted in negotiating my exit and settled the matter in the best possible outcome.

    Ben dealt with my case with the highest professionalism and efficiently achieved a very satisfactory settlement package for me within a fast turn-around. Ben gave me completely unbiased and sound advice, knowledgeably answered any queries and explained legal terms and issues thoroughly making sure I understood everything. He explained all the possible options and also respected my personal choices throughout the process. Ben always made sure to be available for my appointment at time of my convenience, has been very flexible when sometimes contact needed at short notice, gave very prompt response in every communication and kept me well updated at every stage.

    I could not thank Ben and Schofield & Associates enough for all the support and advice getting me through this difficult and stressful period. They have helped to bring this difficult matter to a close and I could put it all behind me and move on.

    I would not hesitate to recommend Ben Mason and Schofield & Associates to anyone who needs employment expertise in future. Thank you again for everything.

  • 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.
