Selling a business


I have recently sold my cafe and used Gemma at John Donkin Solicitors.
From start to finish Gemma has dealt with all my enquiries and stress levels in a professional and efficient manner but at the same time been a rock through the whole process.
I would highly recommend her to anyone and would not hesitate to use this solicitors again.

Excellent Service and great communication


We have just had our house sale conducted by John Donkin Solicitors and had to write a review. We were a little worried as they were the most reasonably priced and there’s always a risk the service therefore might not be great. However, I shouldn’t have been worried. The service was excellent. They were on top of everything and really pushed the sale through for us quickly. I definitely felt that John Donkin Solicitors were the driving force. We were also updated regularly which was important to me as I hate sitting waiting not knowing what’s going on.

Outstanding service


I was recommended to use John Donkin Solicitors about 6 years ago for all my legal matters for my Business and I have got to say I have never been so relieved to find a company who is willing to help me so much and offer an outstanding and friendly service not only from John himself but also his valuable staff. As you can imagine when you need to seek advice from a solicitor it is generally a worrying time but I can honestly say John and his team put your mind at ease straight away, acts very quickly to resolve any problem or dispute at a reasonable cost.
I would recommend anybody to use John Donkin Solicitors as I believe their work ethic, knowledge is second to none!!

No communication


Absolutely disgusted with the appalling customer service of John Donkin Solicitors Limited. Don't waste your time or money. Incompetent colleagues and found manager ( John Donkin) very rude and obnoxious not willing to solve issues or communicate throughout my case pushing blame to others. When paying high values of money this not what you expect. With out even an apology found to be very unprofessional and would highly recommended NOT to use them.
