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.

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!

Our solicitors are experts in their individual fields and have a wealth of knowledge and experience to help you. We are proud of our hard-won reputation for a no-nonsense, direct commercial ethos.
