The service you provided was excellent. It provided me with the explanation I needed to complete my will. It was delivered in a plain understandable and professional manner. Thank you.
Absolutely fantastic, very helpful, and friendly. Couldn't recommend it highly enough!
Absolutely fantastic solicitors who dealt with complicated probate/trust cases efficiently and swiftly. It is clear Colin is definitely an excellent solicitor and I would have no hesitation recommending both him and his firm. Could not be happier with the service we received. First Class Solicitors. Highly Recommended!
Human and friendly as well as professional. Complex matters are explained well. Matters completed during the difficult COVID-19 epidemic.
We recently instructed Freeman Jones Solicitors again to assist us with a high-value complex contract negotiation. The service we received was exceptional, with practical advice being given throughout and at a reasonable cost. We have used Freeman Jones before and will continue to recommend them to others as our first port of call for anyone who needs cost-effective, excellent legal advice.
