We have just completed the purchase of our first home and used David Gray for the conveyance. I cannot recommend them highly enough. Nicola Fisher and her assistant Beccy Corr were fantastic with us, answering all... questions in simple terms and guiding us through the process quickly. We were kept up to date with progress throughout the entire purchase and it was completed quickly. I would have no hesitation in recommending their services to anyone.read more

Matthew Smith was my solicitor for the purchase of my property. It was an absolute pleasure dealing with him and he did an amazing job, acted promptly on everything, explained everything to me clearly and most... importantly made my purchasing experience flawless. In what can be quite a lengthy and stressful time buying a property, Matthew took care of everything for me and made it stress free. I would have no hesitation to recommend Matthew to my friends/family and will most definitely use him again in the future where required.read more

Sophie Allinson and the team were excellent. I went to them with a small and pretty mundane case that I needed some advice on. Despite this they still went above and beyond for me, and gave my issue just as much... attention as they would have done with a bigger case. I was amazed at the value, and quality of service - having worked with many Solicitors in the past I was very skeptical. If anyone is looking for any assistance, big or small, I cannot recommend these guys enough.Thank you for all your help.read more

I had an initial problem, but as soon as my negative review was seen, I received a phone call straight away. The issue was rectified professionally and quickly. Therefore I would definitely use them in the future.

Thanks to Irfan Ali for guiding us through the complex UK spouse visa application process, which was successful on the first try and my wife is now in the UK with her Biometric Residence Permit despite being from a... difficult (African) country. It might not have been possible to succeed without Irfan's expert guidance, so it was money well spent. No hesitation in using the David Gray firm and Irfan Ali again to secure permanent UK residence after 5 years on spouse visa. Other immigration agents may be cheaper, but it's getting the desired end result without hitches that matters. For professionalism and complete up-to-date knowledge, you have to pay what it takes when your family's future depends on it.read more

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY

I would like to pass on my sincere thanks to Hannah for all her help and support in this matter.  As an individual whom has never had any need for any legal advice or similar, Hannah dealt with my situation as well as I could have ever hoped.  She took the time to listen, to not judge and to offer sage advice in return.  When something was promised to be done, it was not only done, but it was completed within the agreed time and communicated in a clear and concise matter. As much as I would never wish to need legal advice again, my first port of call would be Hannah and if not, one of her colleagues at David Gray Solicitors.

Client testimonial about Bryony Rest - Immigration

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY

It's really only in hindsight that I fully appreciate the support Amy gave me through the whole rather protracted business. Unsurprisingly perhaps, there were times when feelings of shame, regret, of having let everyone down, in particular my family, turned towards self-loathing. But Amy, by just sitting having a chat while we were waiting around, helped me hang on to some semblance of a positive sense of who I am. I am immensely grateful to her.
