Had an absolutely fantastic experience with David Gray Solicitors. They managed to get everything with my mortgage sorted at a fast face, they were always on hand to talk if me or my partner had any questions and the... cost of service was more than fair.Would particularly like to shout out to Jordan Garvin who was an absolute pleasure to deal with. So glad we chose these solicitors, chosen down to the Google reviews too 🙂 definitely paid off. I've already recommended them to family, so do use these guys if you want affordable and very helpful advise. More than worth it!Thanks again for all your help!read more

Our property conveyancing was handled by Andrew Tague at the Newcastle office of David Gray Solicitors. Andrew was lovely to deal with, very helpful and professional. He went above and beyond to ensure that we were able... to exchange on the planned date, despite a number of set backs, and he kept us informed every step of the way. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.read more

I had a very pleasant experience with Andrew Tague from David Gray Solicitors. We had a really fast turn around of approx 8weeks from mortgage offer to completion. I was extremely nervous due to being a first time buyer... however Andrew was very responsive with his communication and reduced those anxieties. Overall very happy with the professional service we received and would use again in the future. Thanks Ashleyread more

We have dealt with Nicola Fisher at David Grays on a number of occasions now for conveyancing matters and we couldn't be happier with the service we have received. Nicola is extremely efficient, very knowledgeable in... her field, professional and easy to work with. The quality of service we have received has been far superior to any other conveyancing firms we have previously used. Highly recommended!read more

I recently used David Gray’s mental health team to get advice for a relative who has been sectioned under the Mental Health Act. Mike Bishop was really great - making a complex area of law simple and helping me navigate... through NHS and legal processes. He was professional, supportive and very responsive, going above and beyond to get things sorted. Since the initial advice he provided, his colleague (Emma Silburn) has picked up the case for my relative and Cliff Veitch has given advice on powers of attorney and financial matters. The letters sent to my relative were really well written -explaining things clearly and sensitively, without any of the usual cold legal jargon that you can sometimes get. This has all been seamlessly co=ordinated inside the firm. I’ve been very impressed and would definitely recommend.read more

Client testimonial about Claire Hunter - Family

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.

Brilliant firm, June Holmes was amazing for me. She dealt with my case professionally and her knowledge in the area was fantastic. June showed care and empathy through a very difficult and important period of my life. I could not recommend her and the firm more. Having such a great solicitor makes a big difference. June puts time and a lot of effort in; her communication skills throughout the process were faultless. This was my first experience with this firm and I will always know where to come first.

Bryony, thank you from the bottom of my heart for the assistance you have provided. I have been to [my UKVCAS appointment] at the Library and everything went quite well. [The officer] said everything looked perfect and she did not have to see any hard copies (thanks to you) because she believed whatever you had uploaded was good enough. Thank you again for doing all the hard work for me. If I had to do all this I would have collapsed.
