"We have been working with Patrick Nicholls and Paul Dyson for a number of months, on what we thought was a rather complicated business transaction between multiple companies. Patrick and Paul were always available throughout the process, on the phone and email, with sound, reassuring advice and they were very good at putting legal terminology into simple, plain English for us to understand - turning a complicated transaction into a much simpler process. We cannot recommend Scott Richards Solicitors highly enough and will be back for all our future needs." Adam Carter, Director of Vanaways

Mr Harrison, Dawlish

The big bonus for us is that he was able to come with Rachel to our home, to sign our wills and check our IDs, as I am disabled and your offices would have been quite difficult for me to access. We were so pleased we Scott Richards. Everybody we spoke to was professional, pleasant and reassuring. Thanks especially to Ollie Johnstone. We wish him all the best in his career in law. His work with us was exemplary." Mr & Mrs Morris

“Everything from your service was excellent. Quick, easy, explained in layman's terms. A really good experience with all the team members we dealt with. The coffee in Reception was great too, along with brilliant mural surroundings and planting. Very friendly! A special thank you to Christine Shute who was impeccable, as were all the team.” Chris and Elaine Bamby
