Ms Forsyth was recommended to me by a business friend as I required a second opinion on a legal matter concerning Employment Law. Following a disciplinary hearing at my workplace, I believed that I had been the victim of ‘Unfair Dismissal’. Although she was very clear that she could give no guarantee of success, Ms Forsyth was of the opinion that it would be worth pursuing the action.
During this lengthy process Ms Forsyth was very easy to deal with and was always available to offer advice and help when needed. I would describe myself as a calm individual, able to perform under extreme pressure, however, on the morning I was to give evidence at the Employment Tribunal, I literally fell to pieces. Ms Forsyth, in her calm, matter of fact way, put me back together again and I was able to take the stand. She guided me through the day in an extremely knowledgeable and professional manner. I managed to express all the points I had felt were very important, ensuring I felt satisfied with ‘my day in court’. This professionalism I believe, did more good for my mental wellbeing than a year in counselling.
Although I have not yet received a decision from the Employment Tribunal, I can truthfully say that I highly recommend Ms Alison Forsyth and believe I could not have received any better service than I have had. At a time when the fees for Employment Advice have to be balanced against a tight budget, I would categorically state that Ms Forsyth would be worth twice her current fee.Anne Marie Macdonald

“The service and support I received from Kerr Stirling's Alison Forsyth was exceptional. As a client going through a difficult time in my professional career I was fortunate to have the expert employment representation I needed to help me get through the tribulations I endured.
Alison was very thorough and proficient in her approach in achieving the best possible outcome for her client. She gave excellent advice and clearly explained all possible options with respectful candour. More importantly in my case Alison was totally professional, supportive, and non judgemental. I felt that she believed in me as an individual and this filled me with confidence and helped me to continue to be strong through times of adversity. I knew that she would do everything she could to ensure a successful result.
Alison was accessible and easy to communicate with. I appreciated that she followed up on the outcome of my case sometime after her involvement had passed; she is genuinely sincere and has the best interest of her client at heart. I am grateful in particular of the time she takes to provide advice whenever I have needed further assistance. I am totally satisfied with the employment information and guidance I received and delighted that ultimately there was a positive conclusion."Mrs S.F, Stirling.
