Our teams work together and are made up of legal and financial experts providing the advice, plus we have our client-care people who  make sure the paperwork progresses smoothly. They are knowledgeable about your case – so useful when you want an update or a bit of reassurance.

Thank you very much for all your hard work on what has been a protracted and difficult sale, particularly conducted at a distance.

Mrs Mary Pope

Gilston, Herts

Toni Chalmers-Smith and her colleagues define "where there's a will there's a way". Toni demonstrated tenacity, drive and an ability to think round problems and find solutions to deliver a result. Toni and the team at Tees are a must for anyone considering financial advice.

Mr Lawrance Lucas

Hunsdon, Herts

I'm very grateful for the professional service that everyone at Tees has shown me: Cathy Izzard who drew up my late mother’s Will and obtained probate; Toni Chalmers-Smith for care fees planning and Allan Wright for the conveyancing. They're knowledgeable, approachable and have empathy.

Mr Jason Herring, Benfleet Forwarding Ltd

Basildon

It has been a pleasure working with Lucy Folley and her team. Lucy’s understanding of the complicated process of selling a business became the overriding factor in reaching a completion. Lucy’s guidance and support to all shareholders throughout the sale process has been greatly appreciated.

Mr G

Bishop's Stortford

You did a great job countering barristers engaged by my then wife, to conclude a reasonable settlement for me at the Court. Thanks very much for your help and advice all those years ago - it has proven to be excellent!

V. Smyth

Bishop's Stortford

A huge thank you to Caroline. I can't thank you enough. I honestly never thought I would ever see any of my money again. When I told my children last night the first thing they said was "what a wonderful solicitor to have." I'm so very grateful and very happy. You are a real lifesaver.

The Fisher family

Janine works with empathy, understanding and compassion. She handled our mother's inquest with skill and sensitivity and guided us expertly. She kept us informed continually via email and multiple meetings and phone calls. Janine completely took the sting and the stress out of our case.
