    This is one solicitor I can thoroughly recommend. She has stuck by us and helped and guided us through several court appearances and complex financial matters over the last three years when we went through the most difficult and challenging times of our lives. Her knowledge and experience is second to non and is a kind and understanding person as well.

    Ian was picked to help with a Trust fund that my late nan wanted to be set up. He was honest and thorough when it came to what she wanted in her Will. He went through all the available options and provided the best advice. He kept in constant contact and no question was ignore nor did I feel stupid asking them. I would highly recommend Ian and Jolliffes.

    Jean

    Ryan Marr was great from enquiry to completion. He’s friendly, easy to get in contact with and responsive. He knows his stuff, but crucially knows how make the technical stuff easy to understand. Reception desk staff were lovely too - friendly and helpful. Couldn’t recommend Jolliffes more.
