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

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 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

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

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

I had two successful (Tier 2 (general)) applications in the past with Bryony Rest. Very straightforward and never let you down. One of the best immigration adviser in the Northeast of Newcastle. Thank you so much.
I came to David Gray in relation to property conveyancing after having issues with another "conveyancing conveyor belt" company. I dealt with Anthony Moscrop who kept me informed periodically without me having to chase matters. Not only was the service better, but it was cheaper than the Estate Agent recommendation I was using before. Brian Hegarty also was also very helpful on informally clarifying some other unrelated matters. I would happily go use David Gray again. Their broad reach of disciplines and excellent service is what makes them respected regionally.read more

David Gray has a group of accommodating and dedicated staff from reception to solicitors handling your case.We commend June Holmes for her exemplary service and professionalism. Since she started handling my wife's immigration case, she collated everything in order without missing anything. She's very meticulous and gave us advice accordingly with detailed information. She's very sympathetic to our situation and you can feel it when she works with you. With her skills, experience and dedication, it is guaranteed you are in good hands and we thank her for her endeavours in helping us to secure my wife's further leave to remain. During the final process of our appeal, June moved to a new department in her practice and transferred our case and all documentation to her colleague Irim Ali. Irim took our case to its final stages with absolute professionalism with the same very high standards as her colleague June. We felt very confident that we would win our case because of the professionalism of both Solicitors. Their expertise and sympathetic understanding of our situation made us feel very relaxed.We would have no hesitation in recommending David Gray Solicitors and all their colleagues to anyone who needs legal advice of any sort. It has been a trying and stressful period in our lives and we are glad that it has come to its conclusion. We thank them sincerely from our hearts for all they have done to help us. We could not have done it without them.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

June puts time and a lot of effort in. June's communication skills throughout the process was faultless. I cannot thank her and Irim Ali enough.
