    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.


    We've dealt with many areas of law with Jolliffes of which they have always been knowledgeable, helpful, quick to respond and acted with us in mind. We continue to use them 5 years on!


    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.


    Great from start to finish … speedy and great communication … much faster completion than expected in this current climate so would thoroughly recommend
