Testimonials

‘I have dealt with Fisher Jones Greenwood for many years, but have recently had to call on them after the sad loss of a family member. Everything is dealt with in a professional manner and explained including all the related costs etc. They always reply to your emails and calls promptly. They are very knowledgeable and approachable and answer any questions or issues you may have. A very professional firm.’

‘Susanne Grimwade has been excellent in all the dealings we have had with her in the past two years, sorting out the probate for our father, and now our mother. She has been compassionate and caring but also efficient in sorting the estates out.’

‘Our major contact was Amy Burton. Amy dealt with everything to do with our business. Everything Amy did was perfect and produced on time and to a very high standard. We could not fault anything Amy did for us.’

‘Lauren Hancock was the solicitor who dealt with my late father’s estate and I was the executor. This was very daunting for me as I had never done this before and I was grieving. Lauren was very professional and friendly, she has empathy and I felt I could call her at any time for advice and nothing would be to much for her to help me with. I felt that the whole practice had strong family and community values.

‘Lauren Hancock has provided an exceptional service, from our first meeting to discuss my mother’s estate. Lauren’s manner, communication and skills have been second to none and I would not hesitate to recommend her to friends and family.’

‘They are extremely efficient and caring. Always polite on the phone and as helpful as they can be.’

Testimonials

We have used FJG for a variety of tasks across different specialisms. When working through legal contracts, these tend to be time critical. Regardless of the partner involved, or the assistance supporting, they have always provided timely and detailed support with obvious understanding of their specialism which gives us the confidence that we can rely on them regardless of challenge‘.

Great value for money, always prompt and thorough responses, and happy to provide fixed fees which are much easier to gain sign off for in a business. The support team are always friendly and helpful‘.

Tony Fisher’s advice and guidance has been instrumental in a number of changes we have made to the company, and the detail that we have put in to our contracts to secure and derisk our growth. Tony is reactive, and available at short notice and you can see he has an ability to flex his diary to accommodate us when needed‘.

Ashton Carter always goes out of his way to assist, working late if our query is urgent. We would never expect anyone to do this but the fact that he is willing to do so when necessary is a great help to us. His responses are always thorough and clear, and I rarely have to ‘translate’ his responses to relay them to the business. We have had reps previously whose responses were very ‘legal’ and I have had to put them into layman’s terms for the board to be absolutely clear on what is being said‘.
