‘I had a road traffic accident in 2004. While on a work trip to Australia from the UK. My 4-day visit turned into 11 months of hospital treatment in Melbourne. I had no friends or family.
My first memory of Peter Burt when he visited me in hospital was of a kind, reassuring professional. He provided clarity, guidance and support in a time of total chaos. He understood my needs and limitations. Particularly, at a time when my life and health had been turned upside down. At such a vulnerable time, his presence was crucial. He gave me the confidence that I was in safe hands, despite my limited physical and mental capacities following my accident. This allowed me to focus on my recovery. Not suffer the exhausting worry about the legal side of the situation.
Throughout the process, Peter guided me through the options, complications and tasks with the utmost skill and care. He remained in close contact after I returned to the UK, despite the distance and time differences. He and his warm team were always very accessible and responsive whenever I was in touch.
Ultimately my case was resolved. I received the best possible financial outcome I could have hoped for. It has made an enormous difference to my life now. The difference is something I could not have realised whilst still in the acute physical recovery.
I would not have achieved this without his outstanding professional expertise. His guidance and encouragement through a long, complex, exhausting and emotional process was invaluable. He was undoubtedly the best legal counsel I could have wished for. I would wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone needing the surest ally in their time of greatest need. I am eternally grateful to Peter for his major part in easing me through the most challenging years of my life. And for ensuring that the challenge was followed by some recompense and comfort.”
