Helena Woodward


What people say

"I wanted to say many thanks to you for your invaluable councel during my recent departure from my employer. I was very impressed with the aplomb with which you addressed the various challenges that were presented along the way, and with your professional, helpful and patient manner when liaising with me.

 Thanks to you a conclusion was swiftly reached with which I was extremely satisfied, despite the complexity of the matters in hand.

I will certainly have no hesitation in recommending Howell Jones Solicitors, and especially you personally, if I am ever asked whether I know an extremely talented employment solicitor."
