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

The Team at David Gray are superb. They, led by Irfan Ali, were extremely knowledgeable, professional and extremely helpful in dealing with our request for a settlement visa for the UK. We had a fairly unique set of circumstances which they fully understood and were able to advise us accordingly to the extent that the submission was made once, no return questions from the authorities, and visa approved without any problem. Thank youread more

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY

Many thanks to Anne at David Gray Solucitors for her help with buying and selling a house on my Mum’s behalf. Given I was using a Power of Attorney and trying to do this from overseas I was unsure if anyone would be able to help, but Anne and her team made it all so easy. Having struggled in the past to get solicitors to respond to me I was very impressed by how responsive and proactive Anne was in handling my case. She was both friendly and professional, and I have complete confidence in her. I strongly recommend David Gray Solicitors to anyone looking for legal help.
