My best experience of solicitors to date.

Both the selling and buying of our properties were carried out with great efficiency by Mark Hill & Celia. All questions and replies were all answered promptly under some difficult circumstances. We would not hesitate to use you again.

Mr Veasey was a very sympathetic man, who was very supportive in my dark days.

A special ‘thank you’ to Helen and her secretary Kelly. They have been (as always) extremely professional and efficient whilst remaining friendly and helpful. A top class team – thank you for your patience and understanding too.

The staff we came across was very friendly and Mr Veasey made us feel confident and relaxed.

Every question was answered in plain, easy terms and in a warm and friendly manner. Not once did I feel anxious or uninformed.

I can’t praise M&B enough, nothing was too much trouble. Mrs Pacey gave me the help and advice I needed in making my will. In fact she gave me advice I hadn’t thought of so I am sure when the time comes my family will know exactly my wishes

Just to say thank you very much to Richard, who provided a thorough and carefully considered taxation advice service, I will certainly use again.

Helen Pacey proved to be a very efficient person at the job. She made it all make sense and helped me personally through a very difficult and emotional time. In my mind she became a friend and knew exactly what I was feeling every time we spoke.

My special thanks to Helen Pacey for her professional yet empathic manner and for easing us through a very difficult time following the death of my late mother

Richard Stoppard provided excellent advice and support. I was fully satisfied with the service provided.

I found Mr Richard Stoppard very professional and helpful, who came highly recommended.

Everything from my first call to my last call was everything I could have wished for. Very satisfied.

No nonsense approach by Mr Veasey. He explained everything in layman’s terms for me and re-assured me. Thank you very much for all your help.

Mrs Helen Pacey was recommended to me by a neighbour. Having been recently bereaved I needed a lot of advice. She was extremely helpful, explained everything clearly and made quite clear what the costs might be. I was very satisfied with all the work.

I have known this firm for many years and my experience has been excellent service “the old fashion way” – well done!

Mrs Pacey saw me at short notice. I was incredibly impressed by her rigour, attention to detail and courteousness. I will always use her for my legal work in the future.

I found Mrs Pacey to be very helpful and efficient in the preparation of my will, her expertise and guidance was very much appreciated.

Having dealt with Mr Veasey and Sue, I couldn’t have wished for a more caring and sympathetic team of people.

Both John Veasey and his secretary are excellent. I would, have and will continue to recommend. I cannot thank them both enough.

Client care was excellent, you could not be faulted. Moving house is very stressful but the kindness, reassurance and care we received from everybody within the company was second to none.

As usual we could not fault any of the staff. Helen being a very caring person makes making a will a lot less stressful, she does not rush you and explains everything very carefully – we would certainly recommend her to anybody.

As a first time buyer, the impression given to me from you was one of
being in control. I particularly liked the speedy response to all of my
questions, emails and enquiries. Very happy with all parts of the service,
including cost.
