How can we help you?

We offer a comprehensive range of legal services for both private and commercial clients.

If you have a matter you would like to discuss with us, please get in touch and have a chat with one of the team. You can then decide for yourself if we are the right choice for you without any obligation. The majority of our clients come to us through recommendations from family and friends and from our reputation in the local area; therefore we must be doing something right!

Client care is at the forefront of everything we do and we understand the importance of good communication. We will always keep you updated of any progress or developments as your case progresses. We also appreciate that every client has different needs and even the most straight-forward case is unique and will be dealt with as such. We treat our clients the way we would want to be treated ourselves – as a person and not a file reference number.

We can also guarantee that the solicitor who takes on your case will be the one who works on it throughout – we do not pass work down to junior staff members as is often common practice in other legal practices. Throughout your time working with us, you will have a constant point of contact with a direct telephone number and email address to reach them on.

Testimonials

Find out what our clients think about us.

"I work with a few lawyers, and Rhian is definitely the best and the most reliable solicitor. She is diligent, quick in response, professional and above all of excellent integrity. During COVID lockdown, she continued to provide uninterrupted service; When there are questions on the mortgage procedures, she took an extra mile to clarify for me. She is very knowledgeable on property lease, from the latest EWS1 requirement to multiple layer of leasehold structure. She also kept proper records and filing, including the communications with the bank. I would definitely recommend her to my friends and family. "

Residential Property

"Jane has a wealth of experience in the area of residential leasehold. Combining this with Jane’s practical and friendly approach enables her to provide clear and concise advice about all leasehold matters. We have benefited from the support and advice provided in dealing with a number of complicated leasehold issues including short term holiday lets, specialist service charge debt recovery, service charge apportionment and leasehold enfranchisement. Storrar Cowdry legal support has enabled us to develop and grow our property management portfolio."

Residential Property

"I just wanted to write quickly to say that Daniel was recommended to me and I have to say he's been brilliant!! I've bought a few houses over the last couple of years and so have a fair few conveyancers to compare him with. In particular I didn’t feel rushed or confused (yet we've exchanged really quickly), which has almost made the process pleasurable. "

Residential Property

"Dan was professional, prompt and excellent throughout. His advice was pragmatic and his efficiency in dealing with his counterparts (and my own numerous questions) was impressive."

Residential Property

"We would highly recommend your company.  Jane Devine was excellent at all times, made things easy to understand.  We couldn’t praise her enough.  Thank you."

Litigation & Family Law

"We wanted to say a huge thank you to you both for sorting all this bout for us so smoothly as you did, with as little stress as possible for us, which is very much appreciated. The sale of mum and dad’s bungalow and the closure of their Estate means we can now move forward with the next chapter of our lives. We would not hesitate to recommend both of you to anyone in similar situations. Thank you so much and very best wishes."
