Business Advice
We are most indebted to you for the invaluable service, advice and guidance that you gave us and most of all your commitment.
Michael Gibson – Crime
Housing and Property
Cliff Veitch, both my father and I we would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your kind assistance in this matter which is greatly appreciated. As always Cliff, we have been very impressed with the high standard of service together with exceptional customer service. Whether it has been a same day response or quality legal advice, you have delivered the best possible service to us. I look forward to dealing with you again with regard to the re-letting of the property.
Cliff Veitch – Property
Wills, Probate and Trusts
This was a potentially very difficult time for me, and your family services (including the additional work done by your conveyancing dept.) were exceptional. It wasn't just that they were efficient and effective, it was that the divorce was carried out in a friendly and human manner. I really felt like Jane understood the emotional as well as the legal side of things and that made a world of difference. I achieved the relatively painless amicable divorce and housing resolution that I was looking for, and I attribute this in no small part to your services. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend your firm to anyone else in my circumstances.
Jane Wilkinson
Tenancy, Eviction and Disrepair
I want to say how lucky I was to choose your firm to represent me in this difficult case relating to repairs to my home.
Paul Harbison
Claims, Debts and Consumer Disputes
I would like to thank you for the service you have provided over the past few weeks. I believe that you’re prompt intervention, with regard to legality, and the professional manner in which you presented at the hearing played a key part in the other parties’ claim being dismissed.
Lucy Mead – Family
Accident and Injuries
I know you have put a lot of work into the case thank you for all you have done for me.
Rebecca Boniface – Family
Public Authority and Human Rights Claims
As all my legal affairs appear to be in order it is time for me to say 'Thank You'. The last three and a half years since my husband died have not been easy...I am so very grateful for all you have done for me. Your patience and understanding have helped me on numerous occasions when I couldn't see a way forward. Three years ago I couldn't anticipate a life without my husband but I now feel able to face the future without him. You have helped me so much.
Cliff Veitch – Property



Thank you to you and your staff for help selling my late Fathers property. You made a difficult process easy to understand and your staff were both helpful and easy to deal with. I would be happy to recommend your professional service to my remaining family in the UK.

Paula Harris – Civil
Legal Assistant
I just wanted to say how very grateful I am to you. You've been a calm and supportive presence during what has been an enormously difficult time, and your advice has been invaluable. I'm very glad that we went down the collaborative route, and I think that your experience did much to smooth the path for everyone. Thank you.
