How We Work

Keeping you informed

Is it too much to ask that you are kept informed regularly about how your case is progressing? We don’t think so. We think it is your right.

Contacting Your Solicitor

Do you have difficulty contacting your Solicitor? If you agree to pay for legal services, the least you can expect is a prompt response from your Solicitor.

Moving Cases Quickly

It’s bad enough that you have to get a solicitor in the first place! Our job is to get your problem solved fast! That means we have to do things quickly

Value for Money

We charge based on the value of our work to you. Many firms charge based only on the amount of time they spend on your work. In this way, the slower they are, the more they charge!

"We rate the service 10/10. We received an excellent service from Elaine when completing our sale and purchase. Elaine is a consummate professional with great communication skills. We were always kept up to date with the progression of the sale and purchase and matters were at all times dealt with in an expeditious manner. Elaine is extremely courteous and we would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Elaine to friends and family. She is a "safe pair of hands". "
A.D., Conveyancing Client
"I didn't expect my case to end this quickly. Helen's communication in relation to my case was excellent. I was always up to date with all the information. Appointments were always arranged in a way that suited me, her client. Overall, this is a great team to work with."
H.B., Personal Injury Client
"As the entire process was new and unnerving we found that Helen always made the process seem a little less stressful. The overall case was a difficult one due to the complex nature of it and we always felt that we were very well served. Helen's insight and knowledge and overall understanding of our own personal circumstances made it easier for us to manage. Some of the discussions I needed to have with Helen were very tough for me as they all related to my ongoing health and future prognosis, this Helen managed with extreme care and compassion and made me feel like I was understood and I had someone in my corner."
R.C., Medical Negligence Client
"Elaine was incredibly prompt in her response to our queries and readily available at all times. The last few days of closing were tense due to a delay on our behalf but Elaine continued to keep in constant touch even over the weekend via email. Elaine was very personable from our first interaction. We had gotten quotes from other solicitors but the minute we spoke to Elaine we knew we were going to get excellent service. She shared her wealth of experience and all the insights she has gained over the years, everything from letting the broker arrange the mortgage protection for at least the first year to carrying out a pre-closing check of the house. She made buying our first house so much easier.

"Let me say that in over 20 years in business, I have never interacted with a Solicitor who has demonstrated such dedication to duty above and beyond what could have been expected. Helen is an exceptional ambassador for your company. a real lady who dealt with my complicated legal issues in a manner that has forever enhanced my perception of the legal profession. She was competent for sure but it was the added value in her approach, she took it personally, she cared and she really did try to bring out the humanity underpinning any and every legal action. To Helen and my barrister, I am forever in their debt for the way they treated me with compassion and the skillful way they dealt with my case to minimize hurt and pain. A credit to their profession and a credit to your firm. Please be sure to take note of my e-mail /contact details because I would be very happy to stand over these comments and recommend your firm to anyone."

"The service was very professional and courteous, but both solicitors I dealt with [Evelyn MacKenzie-Smith and Helen Coughlan] were also very warm and empathic, making a very painful situation somewhat easier. Every effort was made to accommodate my needs and my wishes. My ideas were listened to and no decisions were ever taken out of my hands.
