‘I was so lucky to find Charles Price when I needed urgent professional help for a very complex appeal. In addition to being incredibly professional, Charles had a friendly and down to earth approach when dealing with very complicated and technical issues. He was very dedicated and always available when I needed him throughout the whole process.
I cannot thank Charles enough for his dedicated help and support.‘
Stephanie Millward MBE
‘I first came into contact with Charles at no.5 chambers seeking legal advice on a particularly complex and bitter employment dispute.
From that time I have found him to be nothing other than an absolute gentleman. He has a wealth of employment law knowledge with the necessary wherewithal to completely engage with any challenge that may come his way.
Charles has an empathetic passion for people and a genuine compassion for their employment related problems. This, coupled with his loathing of injustice within employment have created the perfect balance of legal know how and dogged determination to see that justice is served.
I cannot recommend Charles highly enough and am honoured to now have the honour to refer to him as a friend’.
‘Charles took my case upon first phone contact. Even though I did not meet Charles face to face, I could feel that he will be the right representation for me in my “accreditation dispute”. Charles helped me in every step of the appeal process in a manner so professionally that words cannot describe. He was morally and mentally supportive in times that I was in distress and was feeling very very low. I called him several times in such a distressful period of my life and he answered my call even when he was having family times. Eventually, we won the appeal and my membership was re-instated. Many thanks Charles! Will recommend you to anyone. 5* rating. Best regards! Sam’
‘During handling of my case Charles was sincere, empathetic, honest, dedicated, prompt, open and transparent , understanding, realistic and practical, approachable and easily accessible.
