"I am really appreciative of Chris’s passion for disability law and his experience. I found him to be very competent and transparent. He works with integrity and he demonstrated a commitment to me as his client. Chris's relatable, knowledgeable approach was reassuring and much needed during this experience. He went the extra mile and made the effort to ensure I understood where I stood in this case in relation to disability Law and his strategy. This felt supportive as it meant I could match my expectation with a realistic, positive outcome. I would absolutely highly recommend Chris Fry as an excellent solicitor. Thanks for your work on my case." – Lesley
"As a LiP and feeling utterly let down by the legal process, I reached out to Chris at Scott-Moncrieff who very quickly got me the support of a barrister and within a very short time-frame and being flexible with fees helped me to negotiate the appeals process. I'm very thankful for the team's support when I needed it most." – Steve S
“I came to Chris for a second opinion because my Trade Union Solicitors had advised me that my claim for reasonable adjustments would fail. Chris came back to me quickly with a couple of strategies which ultimately led them to change their mind, giving me free legal support and optimism that my work issues will resolve.” - Lou McCourt
"I chose Chris Fry who has a proven track record in discrimination cases to help me pursue a disability discrimination case against a nursery that had denied my daughter access and refusal to make reasonable adjustments. It was an incredibly difficult time for us as a family and to have a solicitor like Chris who saw the people behind the documents made all the difference. We could see that Chris was passionate about the change that was needed in society to make a more inclusive world for everyone. What was really helpful is that he gave us his mobile number and really meant it when he said 'call anytime' Thank you for all your help Chris!" - Vanessa W
