  • On July the 1st 2009 I was exposed to asbestos in my home. I attempted to seek the help of several local solicitors to claim damages compensation for me, but unfortunately none of those solicitors thought that I had a chance of winning any future court case or reaching any settlement out of court. Mr Richard Beaman, at DWS, spoke with me via telephone and he agreed to work to pursue compensation for me. He has worked tirelessly for me. He has shown that there is a case for compensation for me in his correspondence with the legal representatives of the negligent parties. It appears that Mr Beaman has left the defending parties no place to manoeuvre. In all correspondence with me, Mr Beaman has been very professional. He has answered my queries patiently and politely. Because of the excellent work of Mr Beaman, what once seemed a hopeless chase […] read more

  • I made a claim after I was involved in a road traffic accident. I was a passenger in a bus which collided with a car. I approached DWS after a friends recommendations. The solicitor I dealt with, Richard, was clear, simple and efficient when dealing with my claim. He provided me with advice and how he could help me initially at all times including advising recommendations and I found him to be truthful and very reliable. He was consistent and I never changed hands or dealt with anyone else throughout my 9 months of my claim. Richard was available at all times for me whether through emails and telephone. I never had to wait for his calls! He was prompt in his reply and I strongly believe he is a great asset to the company! I am very satisfied with my claim and have recommended other friends to your company […] read more

  • My conveyancing solicitor was hard working and committed to personally ensuring that the sale and purchase of my new home was completed effectively and more importantly on time and to the agreed schedule.  It was a real pleasure dealing with DWS and I found the staff to be most professional, courteous, reliable and furthermore available should the need arise to contact them….I would not hesitate whatsoever in recommending DWS to family or friends.
