RC states:-


When I first came to Greg Nolan for advice I was out of my comfort zone  in the sense that I had never dealt with solicitors or even that many doctors before. I was in bad health after being stuck by a car and my whole life went from moving so fast to a total standstill. Mr. Nolan put himself in a position to deal with everything he possibly could from dealing with all the legal and medical issues to assisting me with my own paperwork which I was unable to deal with.I felt that I had a friend that knew what he was doing and who was on my side. He is the epitome of professionalism and he helped me to get my life back on track.
