COVID 19 (Coronavirus) Statement

Our Offices

As of 5pm today, 23rd March 2020, our offices will be closed to the Public. This decision has been taken to ensure the safety of both our staff and clients as well as the communities in which we operate. We have implemented contingency arrangements to enable our staff to work remotely and they will continue to provide the best possible service to all clients, existing and new. All staff will continue to receive their emails and their full contact details including their direct telephone numbers can be found on our website.

Client Meetings

As we will be unable to have face to face meetings whilst the emergency continues, our meetings will be conducted by telephone. We are also able to set up conference calls for multiple delegates. In some cases, it may also be possible for video conferencing to be used.

Court Proceedings

Clients involved in Court Proceedings where hearings have already been scheduled or are likely to be scheduled, should contact their Legal Representative because most hearings are still likely to take place – but they may be more likely to be by telephone or video link. Our Legal Representatives are being kept up to date by the Courts of their plans each day.


There may be some difficulties with postal services and it would be appreciated if clients and other professionals could communicate with us by e-mail and telephone wherever possible to ensure we are able to assist you as promptly as possible. If you are unsure who to contact please email info@sillslegal.co.uk and we will be happy to put you in touch with the appropriate person.

Minimising impact of Covid-19 on client services and protecting our staff

We have a designated team who will meet daily as the situation develops in order to ensure that we can adapt to the ever-changing circumstances whilst maintaining the highest possible levels of client service.

Making Payments

For those wishing to make a payment, please, where possible, use our online facility https://www.sillslegal.co.uk/pay-an-invoice/

We would like to thank you for your support at this difficult time.

Thank you so much for today. You did an amazing job and I couldn’t have asked for anyone better to represent me! I’m so happy that it went that way and that I’ve been granted the non molestation order. I can now relax a little bit and actually live my life without having the fear of my ex partner in the back of my mind. Thank you so much once again, I’ll always be grateful for you and your team at Sills & Betteridge. You all did an excellent job and handled my situation perfectly.

Thank you for the professional way that my divorce was handled; a very painful time which was eased by the ‘fuss-free’ approach from yourself and Leanne. Will certainly recommend.

Mrs B.

I would personally not use any other solicitor – Andrew Durkan has been very professional and understanding in the completion of my will. Highly Recommended.
