Efficient service


No problems whatsoever with completing my remortgage. Efficient service, good communication and great value for money. One of the cheapest but still one of the best!

False Accusation of Assault


My solicitor did a very good job for me. She gave very good advice. She put a lot of work in with regard to looking at the available evidence. She was very meticulous and she relayed all the information necessary to my barrister for my defence.

The case was a long and protracted one and required both patience and tenacity.

Thank you for everything.


After phoning around a number of solicitors and been quoted crazy money I was advised to speak to Poole and Alcock by a friend of mine. Best decision I could have made. Tim Edgley was refreshing to deal with and made me feel extremely comfortable in a worrying time. The outcome of the case was 100% better than expected and can’t thanks Tim and the team enough. Highly recommend.

Highly recommended


I would recommend Poole and Alcock because I found them to be very professional and extremely efficient. They quickly dealt with any issues and always put me at ease.... nothing was too much trouble for them. Big thank you in particular to Dan Brooke’s and the team for helping me through a very stressful time.

A representative from Poole Alcock LLP responded to this review on 13 March, 2019

Great Service


Used Poole & Alcock in Crewe for some work in our office. Our Solicitor was Dan Brooks and we cannot praise him highly enough. Work was carried out efficiently and effectively. Would definitely use again and would recommend

Genuinly Amazing


I approached Poole Alcock not knowing what to expect. After having my initial meeting with Dan Brooks I immediatly felt refreshed and all stresses left me. I was assured I would be looked after and that they did. I went into court with Dan and come out with the best result I could imagine. I now have my Son very regular and get to live my life with my little boy. Honestly Dan without your help I dont know where I would be right now.

Thanks again

Engaged to transfer a parcel of land but did not work out that we might not have legal access to it


We discovered that there was a small piece of no man's land between one piece of our property and the road. Someone else acquired that and is now threatening to stop us accessing our property unless we give them a large chunk of our land in a different place.

Avoid this shower at all costs.

I think when getting Legal advice it can be a real mistake to go for the cheapest price!

I am glad I did not do that and instructed Pool Alcock to act on my behalf in a land dispute.

Everything was left to them and this resulted in winning my case - it looked like the person I was in dispute with went for the 'cheaper' Solicitor...

A special mention for one of the partners Daniel Brookes who was superb from start to finish.

Highly recommended..........

Great dissapointment with service given. Lack of competency.
I've needed a solicitor to act as a witness while we will sign paperwork in regards to transfer on an equity.
I've rang and been priced up so made an appointment. Couldn't attend so rang again to rebook it. There was no record of my appointment at all. When we went there on the agreed day and time I have been told that again there is no record of my appointment. That's twice!!
The solicitor that we suppouse meet wasn't even bothered to come out and see us.
We wanted to see office manager, but there was nobody on duty.
Someone came out and told us that they are not able to help us anyway.
Please avoid.
