My first point of contact with First4lawyers was the call agent, who was very understanding and professional in handling my call. I was nervous about talking to someone because the incident was still raw and the call agent put me at ease. They explained what would happen and made sure I understood the procedure. I felt pleased that I made the decision of phoning First4lawyers.
