highly recommended

If you are looking for a solicitor to represent you in a divorce settlement then I would not hesitate to recommend Gary Watson at Boyce Hatton. Gary represented me in a contentious divorce lasting nearly three years; throughout which he remained the consummate professional. His communications with me were always prompt, concise and candid. His communications with the opposition robust but never inflammatory.
Gary is well informed, calm and measured. If all solicitors were as effective as Gary I'm sure divorce matters would be concluded swiftly and equitably - Unfortunately they are not - The needless aggression and tardy communications of the opposing solicitor (Fiona Yellowlees at WBW - not recommended) created a lot of ill feeling and undoubtedly added to the cost and duration of our proceedings.

Much appreciated

This will be of limited value for you because Kate Barton was acting for my step-grandaughter and my role was to support that grandaughter who has a long term illness. I was a sort of PA to her handling the paperwork, paying the bills and helping/advising her throughout her dialogues with Kate (An important point here - Kate was excellent in understanding this situation and establishing a very much appreciated dialogue with the grandaughter for what turned out to be a very long series of Court matters).

Exceptional service

We used Cheryl Baxter for the selling of our guest house business. Despite all the difficulties selling during a pandemic and never being able to meet Cheryl in person we were very impressed with the service we received. Cheryl and her assistant kept us informed during every stage of the process, was proactive in chasing the chain when needed and keeping us calm when things got frustrating! She explained the process and legal jargon clearly so we were able to understand the legalities and terminology of all the different processes.

Have used Peter Lewis on a long running contentious commercial legal dispute where he provided pragmatic and sensible advice achieving a successful outcome whilst avoiding what could otherwise have been a hugely expensive court action. Have used Joe Pengelly on a complex multi-party commercial property purchase and lease contract renegotiation, where he prepared a 27 page lease contract for a very competitive price.
