He has always provided extremely sound and pragmatic legal advice and on every occasion with a positive outcome from our perspective. He has a tendency to gain an immediate grasp of the issues and shows an exceptional level of support in relation to any employment dispute. I wholeheartedly recommend him to other employers regardless of the nature of the business.”

“We engaged DPH Legal when we were taken to an employment tribunal by a disgruntled ex-employee. We were going through a period of restructuring and made over 15 redundancies without any problem but this one got personal. The claim was a particularly nasty attack on the business and at times they tried to involve our customers. dph legal’s approach was calm and professional from the beginning. The case eventually went to court where, again, David Harris of dph legal demonstrated his experience and knowledge in cross examination of the complainant and, eventually, the case against us was dismissed. I would have no hesitation in recommending dph legal to employers or employees requiring employment law advice”

“I had to employ the professional services of DPH Legal at a time of tough decision making. David was quick to respond and always proactive with regards to managing information related to the case. The result was good and the process stress free in as far as David took ownership of the process and calmly resolved issues with some ‘difficult’ personalities. I have recommended his services to others and received very positive feedback.”
Wayne Skinner, former Group Sales & Marketing Director at AlanDick & Co Ltd
“Extremely clear and helpful advice from David Harris and his assistant Denise. They always acted quickly and followed through in double quick time. I would really recommend this firm for a trustworthy, fair, clear and efficient service. They deliver and thoroughly deserve 5 stars on every point of contact I’ve had with them.”
“When I first made contact with DPH Legal I wasn’t even sure why I needed advice regarding an employment issue, but having held the briefest of telephone conversations with David Harris it crystalised for me what the issues were.
The whole service was faultless, swift, efficient, effective and I still felt that I was being listened to and was able to get the employment law background explained fully. None of this “I’m a lawyer and you wouldn’t understand” stuff that you can sometimes get. Always available and always willing to offer advice that meant that a potentially stressful and traumatic termination of employment became less so and actually put me in the driving seat rather than be the victim.
I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending DPH Legal and David Harris to friends and colleagues who found themselves in the same situation.”
“I contacted DPH for some guidance around a settlement agreement. From the second Paul answered the phone, I knew I had made the right choice in calling. His evident experience, candor and honesty, were exactly what I needed, to make the decisions required of me, to achieve the outcome needed to move on with my life. He is not only a fantastic lawyer, but one with sensitivity and the human touch. My experience with DPH was efficient and reassuring, I could not recommend the team enough. Thanks for everything!”
“DPH Legal’s service was second to none. David Harris was very professional, knowledgeable and supportive. He took his time to fully understand my circumstances and provided me with clear and realistic advice. David also guided me through the whole process and kept me fully updated. I appreciated his responsiveness, professionalism and expertise. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend David and his team to anyone in need of advice on employment matters.”
