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
