Nicola Fisher at David Gray has managed a sale and also a purchase of a lease hold property for me. Nicola's work was fantastic from beginning to end. All queries were dealt with quickly and clearly. The service is... truly the best professional service I have received in any sector. I can't rate Nicola Fisher and David Gray highly enough.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

Enormous thanks to Cliff Veitch of David Gray Solicitors who guided us through probate so excellently. Cliff and the company are a highly professional body who provide a fast and efficient service and are highly... respectful at a time which is difficult for family members. I recommend Cliff and David Gray Solicitors wholeheartedly.read more

My medation appointment at David Gray was very helpful Mary is a lovely lady very welcoming and lovely to chat to. Coming from an offshore back ground I was very sceptical about my appointment thinking this is a waist... of time. However upon leaving I felt having someone who was not involved in the situation to talk to helped me massively to put things to bed. Thank you for you help Mary.read more
