What clients say about Emily Boothman

I would like to thank the wonderful team at HCC who took on my case and looked after me following the death of my husband in a traffic collision. They kept me updated throughout and were very professional but also kind and empathetic.

They were always willing to answer any questions I had and explained everything in simple terms. They also allowed me to reply in my own time when I was feeling overwhelmed. I’m so glad I chose them, I really don’t think there is anyone better, they definitely do their utmost for their client - supporting and guiding in a calm, reassuring and experienced way.

Above all, they are very caring and approachable and put you at ease straightaway. I thank you so much for taking on my case and the successful outcome of it. Although this will never bring back my husband, it allows me to look at, and move on to the next phase in my life.

Thank you again for everything you have done for me.
