“I can't thank Jenna enough for all that she has done to settle my case. It took two years of Jenna tirelessly pursuing my case but she managed to get me the compensation I needed to get the right treatment after years of neglect by my dentist. I would have no reservations in recommending Jenna and the Howells team.” Aug 2021
