Testimonials

“I used Stafford Young Jones for both divorce (Karen Wallace) and property matters (Helen Wenham).  Both services were thoroughly consistent in offering steadfast focus, meticulous legal work and a quality of compassionate human support which I think back on with deep gratitude.  I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them.”

“Just wanted to say a big big thanks for everything you have done from day one. The outcome is great and for at least the time being this chapter is closed.  …  Again thanks for everything as this has been by far the most stressful thing I have ever had to endure, and you have helped me though this time, I will forever be grateful for your help.”

“I would highly recommend Stafford Young Jones to anyone in my position.  A larger law firm were handling my divorce and I just didn’t feel ‘looked after’.  I was recommended to SYJ by a family friend who had used them for years, and now I know why.  I really felt that they had my best interests at heart – no request was too much trouble and they took time to explain each step of the process so I understood everything fully.  They were totally ‘on my side’ and offered friendly, honest and professional advice – I trusted them 100%.  I will certainly use them again in the future – whatever my legal requirements.”

“I worked with HW who was outstanding, she was extremely professional, responsive to my requests, took the time to explain things in layman’s terms, she was attentive to details other solicitors would have easily missed. H raises the bar of her profession. I would work with her time and again and recommend her to anyone.”

“Very happy with service, polite, professional at all times – thank you.”

“We have examined the [estate] accounts which we find to be very clear and straightforward, and having no questions return one copy signed by our Finance Director.” A national charity

“I will be happy to share our customer experience regarding our litigation issue, of which was made easy to understand and less stressful by [your] advice and support.”

“You never know when a crisis is going to strike.  Regrettably, I had that misfortune when my wife and I were taken seriously ill and hospitalised at the same time. Panic sets in when one realises that circumstances dictate the need to put one’s affairs in order, and in responding to that need for help I shall be ever indebted to the partners at Stafford Young Jones who, at very short notice, undertook a review and revised our wills, in my case at my hospital bedside shortly before undergoing major surgery. We had both been putting this off for some time, leaving us wishing we had reviewed them more regularly with our solicitors, so learning a lesson the hard way.
Sadly, my wife passed away leaving me somewhat traumatised and desperately in need of professional support to see me through the administration of her estate, something that I was in no condition to undertake after nearly five months in hospital. Thankfully, the partners at Stafford Young Jones again stepped into the frame and relieved me of this burden. In times past I had thought this would be a straight forward process that I could handle if I ever had the misfortune to be called upon to do so. I hadn’t bargained on my own incapacity. They advised on the most appropriate way of taking things forward, relative to the size of my wife’s estate, dealt with everything meticulously and kept me regularly informed as to progress.
Sensitive and caring, not just another another client or administration, is how I would sum up the service I received and would like to put on record my grateful thanks to Bruce Christer, Andrew Strong, Helen Wenham and Andrew Steel together with their support staff for whom nothing seemed too much trouble.”

“Brilliant service and even the estate agents involved were very complimentary about your efficiency and effective communication.”

“My aunts have specifically asked me to pass on their thanks and appreciation for all the hard work you have done for them on [C] Road over the years.  They noted that my mother was also extremely grateful to you.  They have really enjoyed working with you, have come to trust and respect your judgement wholeheartedly and I understand there have been a few laughs as well.  As the new girl on the block I have welcomed your support on [C] Road and also remember your refreshing efficiency in helping my house purchase to go through as smoothly as possible.”

“We have had a look through the [estate] account you enclosed and neither [C] nor I have any problems there.  As you so rightly say, the extra work entailed has been more than compensated by the splendid outcome!  We have felt confident and safe in your capable hands, and thank you most sincerely for all the work you’ve undertaken on our behalf”.

“We would like to thank you for your help with our mother’s estate which we feel has been dealt with efficiently and courteously”.

“I chose to meet with Karen to discuss my Leaving Agreement as she came highly recommended by many ex colleagues.  I found Karen both personable and professional.  Although from my professional capacity as an HR Business Partner I am very familiar with the construct of my company’s Leaving Agreement Karen was very diligent in taking me through all the clauses.  Karen is clearly a subject matter expert in the field of Employment Law, with the innate ability to explain legal terminology in layman terms.  I would have no hesitation in recommending Karen’s services.”

“… thank you for your work here and patience and success in dealing with HMRC.  All much appreciated”.

“I took redundancy from my job in January and Karen Wallace helped me to go through the terms of my Leaving Agreement, giving advice and explaining anything I was unsure of.  I came back to Karen later to help me once more in putting together a brand new employment contract for my next job, which was a start-up situation, and as previously she was on the ball and quick to make recommendations, give excellent advice and was very supportive at the same time.  I would recommend Karen for any employment-related legal issues without hesitation.”

“Once again thanks for all your help.  You really do a great job and take all the stress of selling away which is due to your professionalism”.

“Thanks to you and your colleagues for your patience, and we appreciate the service given.”
