Client Feedback

  • “Thank you very much for everything you’ve done for me. That is a great news for me, I don’t know how to thank you Mr Wilson

    Mr G Kaci
  • Dean

    I just want to say a huge thank you to you today for the way in which you dealt with Ryan and myself and of course the case. I have no doubt without your representation we wouldn’t have achieved this result. Ryan, his mum and me are delighted and relieved it’s all over. Our very many thanks

    We don’t have a solicitor and although I assume your expertise is crime and therefore hopefully won’t need you again, I will certainly be using your firm for any other work in the future

    All the very best 

     

  • ‘Thank you very much for seeing us through the trying process of buying and selling property; only made much easier by your guidance.’

    Mr and Mrs Watt
  • Chloe, we just want to take this opportunity to thank you. There are not enough words to describe just how amazingly you have handled this whole process for us. We can’t thank you enough for supporting us through what has been a challenging few months!!

  • Hello Mr Baker and Matthew

  • I asked Sharon to look into carrying out some debt collection and from the very first communication, Sharon took away all the stress and hassle which this situation can bring. Sharon kept me fully informed with what was going on and carried out the work in a professional yet personable manner. It was great when Sharon told me all the debt had been collected with late payment interest added and for me, it was a stress and hassle free experience and I would highly recommend Sharon’s services.

  • May I thank you for all your care and hard work. In all matters you proved to be most helpful in what was a most difficult and at times trying set of circumstances.

    Keep up the good work, thank you again.

  • I wanted to say a huge thanks to Wendy for the help and assistance she and her colleagues have given me over the past few years, on a personal and professional level.
    Wendy is at the top of her game and has a wealth of experience which can only be gained through proven work experience. The legal advice you get is second to none.
    I have used Wendy’s services for the buy out of my previous business partner, a commercial bad debt and the conveyancing of a property sale and purchase. Throughout all of my dealings with Wendy, she has been professional and treated my cases with the upmost priority and has always had my best interests at heart.
    Thanks again Wendy for all of your help and I would have no hesitation in recommending your services.

  • I just wanted to send you a message of thanks for your work over these past 4 and a half years. It has certainly been a tough time period in my life, but your support has made things so much easier. Knowing that there were people who understand me, my needs and most importantly believed in me means everything to me, i really can’t thank you enough. The case was certainly not a straight forward one, but you fought my corner at every step. Thank you.
    I would also like to thank Alison as well for making me feel relaxed on the day should i have had to go into court. I would have gone in with 100% confidence and that could have made all the difference on the day. In the end it wasn’t necessary and we got the result. For me it was never about the money, it was about the effect it was going to have on my future life and career, so the result is a good one.
    I would not hesitate for a second in recommending Sills & Betteridge

    L.P
  • Thank you for all your help with this matter and the efficient manner in which my case has been handled. As I am sure you will appreciate, it was quite distressing and stressful to have had a second accident in such a short time frame but the way in which you handled the case and provided me with advice and kept me updated throughout has been very reassuring and I have nothing but praise and recommendation for both you and your company.
