  • I have dealt with Ben Garbett at Keystone Law for more than two years I have found him to be honest, knowledgeable and inventive in his approach in that he will always assess a case well and will only take it on if he thinks that you his client can win, more than that he is always there for you, late at night and even weekends.

  • Would just like to thank you for the awesome job you did again for us. Once again getting everything spot on. The way you work is methodical and precise. You have always answered your phone even when I called you on your day off (sorry) I was in a state of panic! Someone once said to me "The most expensive thing you can buy is a cheap solicitor" how true that is.
