Serving the Community for Over 100 Years


Thank you for making us feel comfortable as we discussed our Wills and requests.

Mr & Mrs Jones


We were very pleased with the professional and kind service we received from Paul Dyson and his assistant.

Ms Collins & Ms Penny


Adam and Lorraine have been nothing short of brilliant from the start. All questions answered and have helped make us feel relaxed throughout the journey. Would not hesitate to use them again.

Mr Bowden


Kirsty was extremely helpful, efficient, prompt with fantastic interaction skills with elderly mother, very astute and carried out instructions perfectly. Would highly recommend.

Ms Atkinson


Divorce can be a very frustrating, emotionally driven and long process, so under these circumstances so regular correspondence on progress was really valued. Sarah always responded to telephone and emails in a very timely manner.

Ms Burgess


Caroline Jennings recently dealt with a complex conveyancing matter for me and my partner. From start to finish, we felt we were in the best of hands. She worked efficiently and to some very tight timescales, kept us appraised of developments as they were happening and delivered an exceptional quality of service, for an extremely competitive price. I will recommend Scott Richards to anyone I know, as their client care, attention to detail and standard of service was second to none.
