Mesothelioma Damages Claim


My late brother and I always found all our dealings with Phoebe Osborne to be informative and extremely helpful. Despite the tragic circumstances of the caseload, Phoebe always left us feeling better than prior to her visits. I will always be grateful for all her excellent work and amiable personality. Thank you.

Family Law


Please please do not use Ashton’s Legal for family law I used Stephen Williams Katy Rush Ipswich office and went up against my ex husband who is a conveyancing solicitor and I’m about to be made homeless with my two children one who is very ill with type 1 diabetes and the other with OCD and other mental issues but because no provisions were made in the order that we had to find a home first we are now about to be made homeless. They will not care where end up home it docent matter could be 500 miles away from family friends schools support. Please just spend a little more money and use someone else after all they could not even give me a safe environment against a solicitor that sells and buys houses for a living “ Attwell” they just want your money it’s like they read of a script we all out in one basket. Please don’t use them.

Compensation from the NHS


I have had a great response from Ben regarding my compensation Claim. Ben has been very helpful and has spoken to me in great lengths of what this all entails. Ben has kept me up to date with my claim and has been very helpful with any questions I have. Ben has constantly been in contact with me informing of what stage we are at the claim.

A simple, chain-free purchase is due to complete in almost 4 months. The seller questioned nothing, I questioned nothing. There were *no* complicating factors yet somehow, it took 4 months.
Their phones auto-redirect to VoiceMail, their customer relations answer phone message says they're returning to work on 8th January (it's JUNE).
They *never* send a status update. They had apparently sent chasers to the seller's solicitor but all of this was invisible to me, I was left languishing in the dark.
They received some illegible photocopies from the seller's solicitor, (apparently) but printed and mailed them to me advising I pay "close attention".
I confirmed that there was nothing outstanding and that everything was aligned for exchange of contracts - yup, we're all ready to go. Later, I thought it best to confirm they'd received the contract in the post, Nope, it hasn't arrived - so how could you confirm that everything is ready to go ?

I really wish I hadn't chosen Ashtons.

I would definitely recommend Ashtons, to anyone seeking legal experts, when they come to sell their business, I was delighted with their friendly, open approach and help received. From the start they took what was a very stressful situation and handled it very smoothly, easing the stress on me. At the same time, I was involved at every step of the way, so I knew what was going on. I felt I could rely on them to achieve the best outcome, whilst smoothing what can be a very painful process. Their prices were also reasonable for the work done!
I would have no hesitation in using their services again, and in recommending them to colleagues and friends.

We wont use them again. Having used them a few years ago to purchase a property we were happy to contact again to say we were moving and didn't even consider anyone else. This time though, very different story. Lack of contact, many mistakes, the whole service we received was a shambles. I was even put through to head of department at one stage who said they take complaints very seriously and someone would be in touch but I still heard nothing - that just summed them up for me.
