Fantastic service, I felt that Jemma was totally committed to my case from our very first meeting and I'm sure that it was this commitment allied to her great knowledge and understanding of the legal system that led to my acquittal. I have never been to court before, and Jemma's expert and patient explanation of the law and the court process was first class.
Thanks again for all your help, you and Alice have been amazing. Best solicitor experience ever, we just wished the rest of the chain was like you guys.
Always been the best and has best reputation especially Ben. Always been brilliant and everybody I know uses hpjv says the same.
We can't thank you enough for all your hard work and help through our first property purchase. When it comes to moving again, we will definitely be in contact!
As always when previously using hpjv, we have received an excellent overall service which is customer driven and produces good quick results and explanation of events.
I would rate my Solicitor five stars as I could approach him easily and he was so nice and friendly from day 1. I was kept up to date from the start and if anything got changed, I was told straight away.
I wish to add that during my working life a lot of my clients used solicitors for the purpose of buying, transferring property or obtaining loans for the renovation of same. I could count on one hand the number of solicitors who came in on budget in line with their original quotation, at this late stage in my life you have restored my faith in solicitors.
