A really professional company to deal…


A really professional company to deal with, we were recommended to JMW by a friend and although our case was complex nothing was ever too much trouble. Claire was a pleasure to deal with from start to finish and we would highly recommend her clinical negligence services.

We've worked with James Lindsay on a number of transactions over the past 12 - 24 months' and have been particularly impressed with his communication and work ethic.
James has throughout been instrumental in keeping us up to date with how transactions are progressing, and is able to advise on appropriate solutions for complex queries. He is also always willing to pick up the phone and talk you through sales progression which is hugely beneficial for all parties involved in the buying/selling of property.

I have been working with James Lindsay on several transactions and he is always great to deal with either via email or just picking up the phone to give me updates on the progression of sales.

Working within a sales team I deal with a lot of solicitors and paralegals and I find James to be professional, efficient, knowledgeable and very easy to talk with.

This all helps greatly to ensure that our sales go through quickly; I would recommend using James.

Awful company avoid like the plague. Was referred to these cowboys by my mortgage broker. After having my case for just under two months and despite me contacting on regular intervals, they now decide that they don’t deal with my type of purchase unless I pay £1500. This is after initially being quoted £600. Would urge anyone to go elsewhere.

We really appreciate all the professional and high-standard service and guidance from our solicitor Sophia Liu @JMW. She was always contactable, happy to inform and explain to us every detail throughout the process. The excellent service she has provided went much beyond our expectations. Such a lovely and dedicated person to work with! We will happily recommend JMW to any friend who want to buy a house!
