However, Marie`s interaction with me made me feel at ease and very relaxed. I found Marie to be easy to talk with, caring, compassionate along with being very honest and a true expert in her area of expertise with regards employment law. Marie also believed in me which gave me a great sense of comfort, in turn, helped to boost my confidence and my emotional wellbeing.

"When other lawyers told me there was no case to answer to Marie Macdonald took the case on. As my husband is no longer with us, sadly he passed away April 2014, Motor Neurons Disease, this case was unique as he wasn’t able to represent himself.

Marie was honest with me from the start. It was a time where emotions were running high with no certain outcomes, but we decided to go ahead and fight. Marie was brilliant. I was overwhelmed at her dedication and determination to pursue justice not just for my husband but for us as a family.

Although in a case like this the ‘win’ is bitter sweet, at the end of an eighteen month battle I can finally say I carried out my husband’s last wishes. This was only possible with the support, professionalism and a belief in what is right shown by Marie Macdonald."
