“We have used SPH now for about the last three years to do our legal costing and bills work. We have always found them to be a highly professional organisation. There is a very quick turn around in their work and we have never had to chase them for work to be returned. What we have found particularly helpful is if difficulties arise on cases that we can ring and ask them for general advice. That advice is always forthcoming and we have found it to be accurate and helpful. We would recommend them to any other law firm" - Legal Aid Solicitor - Leeds
