Following a Redundancy at work I contacted a few solicitors to help me review the agreement. I spoke to Matthew Jenkins in their Croydon office and he immediately put me at ease, giving me some pointers. This built trust immediately so I selected Streeter Marshall as a result of this call. Throughout the work Matthew was diligent and helpful working the issues and compromises required to complete the agreement. I would thoroughly recommend Streeter Marshal for Employment Law work.
Professional service, would recommend Matthew Jenkins for clear concise advice
I recently (Sept 2020) used Streeter Marshall and Matthew Jenkins. I found his manor, advice and approach excellent. I would highly recommend his services.
After 32 years of TUPE service I was presented with a Settlement Agreement by my employers. I contacted Matthew Jenkins to seek his advice in negotiating a Settlement Agreement with my employers. Matthew was professional throughout, showed empathy and secured an improved settlement to my satisfaction and resulting payout all within the confines of Covid lockdown. I have no hesitation in recommending Matthew and Streeter Marshall to anyone else who may have employment related issues with their employer.
Very efficient, well organised and informative solicitors - none of this 'we will get back to you shortly' then never doing so nonsense. They are extremely quick in response time if they cannot answer your query immediately. We use Streeter Marshall for pretty much all of our legal needs. Charlotte Holfert is extremely knowledgeable about wills and property. Matthew Jenkins is extremely knowledgeable on employment law and settlements. Will be using them again very soon.
Matthew very experienced and support in a very delicate and stressful situation. Can’t thank him enough. Felt very reassured with his sound advice.
Mr Jenkins advice about my severance agreement was very detailed and explained each point to me. I would recommend your company.
Thank you Matthew Jenkins for a comprehensive and efficient handling of the matter in question.
Went through a Settlement Agreement with them and the lawyer was honest, straight forward, and explained things in terms I could understand.
