Client testimonials

  • We decided to use a local solicitor for our recent house sale and purchase. Despite it becoming a much more complex and pro longed matter. Christopher Taylor provided excellent service throughout his advice was clear and concise and he always found time to talk through options and next steps. He dealt very well with the less than helpful solicitors used by the other parties too. Highly recommend.

  • I was looking for a firm to assist my mother, my sister and myself with the drafting of new wills. I am so pleased we chose this firm. Tom Maxted-Pettman put us all at ease, talked through our options in language we understood and arranged it all with the minimum of inconvenience to us. We got a highly professional service for a reasonable fee. I would recommend this firm to anybody needing legal assistance.

    Theresa Jackson
  • Thank you for all your support and advice over the last 24 months. It has been truly appreciated and you have all worked hard to make things as simple and painless as possible whilst maintaining my intention to keep things civil in order to preserve the best relationship for our daughter. Your support and guidance has been truly invaluable.

  • I instructed Julian Cole at short notice for some legal advice on a Settlement Agreement which was carried out swiftly, helpfully and efficiently. I was recommended you by a family friend and wouldn't hesitate to recommend to anyone else enquiring.
