Great solicitors best I've ever had dealings with , they did all the work
My wife and I recently bought a house using Terry Jones as our solicitor. You hear horror stories about how difficult a house purchase can be, but we experienced no problems at all. Our solicitor Tracy dealt with all the problems before we were even aware of them and I could not believe how smoothly the entire process went. Very pleased and would definitely recommend.
I have been in contact twice previously with this solicitors and both times they were excellent couldn’t fault anything, both Ian and Gaynor were extremely professional and answered all my questions.
Professional, helpful on all aspects I needed.
Emma Wing. I would like to thank you and your colleagues for everything you did in order to resolve my Mother’s estate. There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that you have done far more than is normally expected or required of a solicitor; and that without your kindness, help, understanding and perseverance this matter would still be ongoing. You have my gratitude and admiration for all that you’ve done to help over the many years this has taken to resolve. I am truly grateful for everything that you’ve done to help me and offer a sincere and heartfelt thank you in return.
