Client Feedback

"I have been working with John and Lisa for years and will continue to do so as the service is excellent, friendly and they totally understand my requests and requirements."

"Consultant, John O’Connor, was diligent and proactive at all times with an impressive wealth of legal knowledge. His suggested recommendations and resolute negotiations were key in securing the best outcome for me, and my family, and I wish to thank him for all his help and support."

"We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the excellent service received in selling our 2 properties, which completed on Friday. In particular, we would like to praise solicitor John O Connor who certainly went the extra mile, as both sales were not straightforward ! His direct approach with the bank was fantastic, and saved the day. I personally felt safe in your hands, under the difficult and stressful circumstances that the properties were sold. Fishers Dewes is clearly a team approach, from reception, admin and secretarial staff, everyone is efficient and welcoming. We would not hesitate to use your firm again. A sincere thanks to all of you."
