“I contacted Cheal Associates after being told by my employer that my role was to be outsourced to a third party. I was immediately impressed with Danielle’s knowledge and understanding of the situation, as well as her demeanour which instilled confidence and took the sting out of a stressful situation. After contacting my employer, Danielle negotiated an acceptable termination agreement which was concluded in an efficient manner. I can recommend Cheal Associates to anyone with employment issues.”
Alan R, Dorset
“Danielle of Cheal Associates represented me at the unexpected end of my employment. It was a particularly challenging time and without doubt I wouldn’t have felt so secure and confident had it not been for Danielle’s professional, sound advice and assistance. Danielle assisted me to a conclusion that was entirely satisfactory. She is a consummate professional and I highly recommend her services. ”

John S, Dorset
“Dani acted as my legal representative during the termination of my employment and her friendly demeanour immediately put me at ease and it felt like I was talking to my friend rather than my solicitor. Dani was the consummate professional taking me through the contracts point by point so that I was fully aware of my position at each stage of the process; she made it so easy for me! The result of Dani’s hard work was a satisfactory outcome for me and I cannot thank her enough.
If you are in need of friendly, professional, legal advice then look no further than Danielle Cheal, it was a pleasure working with her and I have no hesitation in recommending her to you.”
Roy C, Dorset
“Following your call to me and advice, I sent a letter to my former employers, and surprise surprise today I have received a cheque and a short letter stating it is to cover the accrued holiday owed. So, a successful conclusion.
I would just like to thank you very much for your advice, although possible simple and straight forward, but it helped me.
Although I did not use your full range of services I would have no hesitation in recommending you.”
Steve B, Dorset
“It was recommended that I talk to Dani when I started having problems with my employer earlier this year. My company was under financial pressure and being in Sales the focus was on downsizing. It was a time of much uncertainty and when unrealistic targets were imposed on me I started to feel very isolated.
Dani was immediately able to put me on track as my legal adviser but more importantly at the time, she reinstated my self-belief during a very difficult time. Dani gave me the tools to help put me back in control of the situation and she guided me to a position where I was able to negotiate very favourable redundancy terms. I would definitely recommend Dani and I would stress that it caused no issues using a lawyer in Dorset even though my company was London based.”
N Porcher, London
“I instructed Dani to be my legal representative for quite a significant issue I had with my employers. From the outset, Dani was extremely supportive and took on the role of confidante (almost counsellor) as well as solicitor. Dani offered practical and straightforward advice surrounding all issues and always put me at ease during the crucial and stressful points in my claim timetable. An unrivalled mind of information surrounding employment law; what she doesn’t know about employment law isn’t worth knowing.
While I’m grateful that the outcome of my claim was more than satisfactory, it saddens me to think that I will not have the opportunity to deal with Dani on a more frequent basis in the future. I would have no hesitation in recommending Dani and I would be more than happy to reiterate as much over a phone call to anyone thinking of instructing her.
An absolute pleasure to deal with. ”
B Culleton, Leeds
“Being made redundant after 10 years with my employer, where I was a Regional Manager, I was only being offered statutory compensation package when previously a precedent had been set with peers for a higher offering. I needed a professional in employment law to act on my behalf with the Director of Human Resources. The timescales were very tight and there were no opportunities for face to face meetings. Danielle Cheal undertook full research into previous compensation plans and provided professional and appropriate advice, undertaking necessary correspondence by telephone, mail and electronic mail.
The result was that the case was completed within two weeks with the appropriate package being offered.
Danielle was extremely professional and efficient whilst acting for me against my previous employer. I have since referred Danielle to colleagues in similar situations and would certainly use her as a consultant or for personal representation in the future.”
