I used the services of Legal request for a claim after a recent road traffic accident. Their representative was very helpful and informative, ensuring the process was as smooth as possible and stress free. The fact that they offered to come to my place of work for me to fill the forms in, saved me a lot of time and hassle. Above all legal request made a difficult situation very easy, I would certainly recommend their service to anyone who needs it.Zoe W
