We used David Gray to help us sell our old home and buy our new home. We are very grateful for the support from Kay Cowell. She answered my calls and emails almost immediately and didn't seem to get annoyed with my requests. Buying a house is a weird, stressful business but this was lessened by Kay's professionalism and niceness.read more

I’ve recently used David Gray Solicitors, and had the pleasure of dealing with Samantha Farndale. Her professional and friendly approach was balanced perfectly with her extensive knowledge, and attention to detail. She was able to provide high standards of guidance and direction, leaving me feeling comfortable and reassured throughout our interactions. I would have no issues recommending David Gray, specifically Samantha, who in my opinion is a credit to the firm, and a rising talent.Thank you.read more

I would fully recommend David Gray solicitors and I would like to give a big THANK YOU to Matthew Smith specifically. My family had recently sold their business and Matthew had been very helpful, professional and informative throughout the process. Selling a business is naturally a stressful process and in our case, Matthew had been very communicative which gave us reassurance and he always made sure to get back to any questions which I had. I would definitely go back to Matthew and David Gray's for future services! Many thanks again for all of your help!read more

We were helped with our Further Leave to Remain (Marriage) application by Irim Ali. Application was submitted online 4 Jan 19, documents were sent around 25 Jan 19 and the application was approved on 20 Feb 19. Irim gave very clear and easy to follow advice which allowed us to get the application and documents sorted first time. We were also very pleased with the 4 week turnaround from the home office receiving documents to approving the application, which is a credit to Irims advice. Will probably use this service again for our next application.read more

I used david gray solicitors for a family law dispute as a respondant. As any mother would agree receiving a court summons is a frightening and upsetting time! Samantha farndale (who I must highlight specifically) made the whole process from first phone call to final hearing an easy and calm process! Highly recommended solicitors from me now, reasonable pricing, professional conduct and extremely friendly to deal with. If ever I need law support I will be returning to david gray at my earliest convenience!read more

Over the last year Mary Shaw has been my solicitor as I have gone through the process of divorce after 30 years of marriage. I cannot rate her highly enough (if there had been 7 stars I would have given that!). She has listened, advised and talked me through every step in such a way that I have felt completely confident that my case was in really expert hands. Because Mary really listened at the beginning to what I wanted, we have managed to get to a settlement with extremely reasonable legal fees, but also, due to her expertise, she has been able to advise me about things that I had not thought of. She has had amazing understanding and compassion about how one struggles during the process of divorce. I cannot thank Mary enough for making a really painful, difficult process so straightforward.read more

I am enormously impressed with David Gray Solicitors. Lesley Monkhouse’s exquisite attention to detail, in-depth knowledge of family law, extraordinary emotional support, professional excellence, unique emotional intelligence and supreme client care is exceptional. Regarding client care, prompt and immediate email response, even up to 9pm is surely beyond her call of duty, but Lesley is unique. Lesley’s excellence is replicated by the enormously talented Barrister, Elizabeth Callaghan.David Gray’s excellent client care include the intelligent Amy Lamb, who accompanies me to hearings and Amy will make a brilliant solicitor, as the world is her oyster. Amy has been a confidant, source of strength in an emotionally sapping proceeding, highly knowledgeable about family law and I consider her a friend. I highly recommend David Gray solicitors.read more

David Gray Solicitors are fantastic, very professional and extremely helpful. My partner recently attended court and had Samantha Farndale as his solicitor, we can not thank Sam enough for everything she has done, from the very first day She was brilliant, she was so helpful and very understanding. My partner felt at ease knowing he had Sam with him, she was amazing in court and explained everything that was happening every step of the way. We felt Sam was incredibly professional and so friendly, it was such a comfort knowing she was there to guide my partner through such a unsettling situation. We would definitely recommend David Gray to a friend and would 100% use them again in the future if we ever had to.read more
