John and Barbara Gilmurray


We are very grateful to you for your patience and sound professional advice during the drawn-out assignment process and have no doubt that we will need your services again in the future. We were so fortunate to have Jane Winfield’s help.

Bursar, Brentwood School


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

Mr Jeganathan


We approached you after 6 months of difficulties with our old solicitors and we were directed to Jane Winfield - who has been tremendous from the offset. She made instant progress and kept us informed on a daily basis, exceeding expectation. The service provided was excellent and efficient from start to end. If you are looking for a very professional friendly service that provides prompt results then look no further - highly recommend Jane Winfield.
