We were delighted by the prompt, efficient and very professional service we received. We must commend Fiona Sinclair, the Paralegal, who was our main contact. It was touch and go whether we would get into our new house for Christmas but with the help of Tees we managed it. Thanks very much!



I recently used Joshua Coombe to guide me through a difficult divorce. He was extremely knowledgeable, approachable and responsive to my needs. His calm, professional and clear advice provided much needed reassurance throughout the process. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to others.



Thank you seems inadequate for the very conscientious way you've helped me. To be treated with such unbelievable kindness and generosity of spirit is, I think, hard to find in any profession today. I feel truly privileged to have known you. I'll never forget you and will forever be grateful.

Victoria handled the very difficult communication with my-ex partner with the utmost professionalism and pragmatism. I felt so supported throughout the process and her care and compassion allowed me to relax and maintain confidence through such a challenging time. An absolute all rounder. 10/10.
