“I have worked alongside Emma on and off for approximately 10 years in relation to compensation claims where we have been mutually acting on a client’s behalf, Emma in her capacity as a Solicitor and myself in my capacity as a Case Manager. I believe that the world of litigation for families who are acting in their loved ones’ best interest can be quite intimidating. Not only are family members or a client’s representative trying to come to terms with the catastrophic and life changing effects of a brain injury but they are also trying to work through a compensation process that will secure the very best outcome for their loved one. It is therefore absolutely crucial that solicitors working within this field have a remarkable quality about them that ensures family members can immediately trust the solicitor who is acting on their behalf and that of their loved one. Emma Truin possesses this ability, she has outstanding warmth of character, she is sympathetic and listens carefully to what her clients and their families and carers are telling her. She is tremendously professional and understands the importance of consistent communication and updates for clients and their loved ones who represent them. Emma is clearly aware that the process of going through a litigation claim can be stressful, upsetting and at times confusing. She is always there and has another remarkable quality of being able to explain what is happening and what is going to happen. I believe that Emma provides calmness and clarity and reassures her clients and their loved ones 100% that they are in safe hands.
