What our clients say

"I truly appreciate everyone's efforts in completing the transaction very quickly. Everyone was a pleasure to work with and should I be asked to recommend any Solicitors in the UK, Sydney Mitchell will be at the top of the list."
Knoxford Ltd

"We were impressed with Kam from the moment he walked into the room. His professional, friendly, but no nonsense approach was perfect. He grasped the complicated family dynamics surrounding the claim against us, vehement rebuttal of it and our suggested defence immediately.

He explained options regarding the nature of our response in simple terms, very quickly agreeing the wording  there and then. Two letters and only this one meeting saw the claim against us emphatically defeated.

Kam was very professional, concise and gave sound and effective advice. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him and his team at Sydney Mitchell."

"I was delighted in the first instance with Mr Majevadia's instantaneous check via IT on the validity of the bond:-dubious! Secondly with Hayley-Jo Lockley's logical approach to the detailed information I provided"

Mrs M

“Kam & Hayley-Jo were very helpful. They managed our expectations. Gave us excellent advice on our best course of action. With the evidence we had, the best advice was given. Even though this chapter in my life was very sad, I have no regrets on the actions taken.”
Mr Davies

“A massive thank you to Hayley and Kam. You explained the legal jargons to us patiently and guided us throughout the case, always kept us informed. A delightful experience under a difficult circumstance.”

Mrs Davies
