I got a lot more than I ever expected.

Divorce settlementJen took my case on after I was using a different solicitor for 3yrs and didn’t get anywhere. She reviewed my case and told me I was entitled to a lot more than I was being offered and indeed that is what she did, I got a lot more than I ever expected. I would highly recommend Jen and will definitely use her again if I ever need too.

Super quick purchase. Steph and Gemma were great.

Shannon Lethaby

I can’t think of any way Slee Blackwell could improve

From my very first phone call right to the end of my case, Hayley and Lee kept me up to date and informed on every aspect of my claim. I can’t think of any way Slee Blackwell could improve as they do a fantastic job already.

Elizabeth Jordan

No one better in the country

Having used Gemma Williams three times now for house purchases and twice for sales, I genuinely do not believe there is anyone better in the country! Gemma kept me informed, responded to emails/phone calls quickly (minutes at times!!) and when everything started to fall apart, she stepped in to save the day. 100% recommended – Slee Blackwell provided with me not only amazing service, but offered great value as well.

Rob Stewart

Darren C

'The Angel of North Devon'

Jen has represented me for the past 2 years. I canvassed about 6 divorce solicitors before making my decision who to represent me, but knew straight away when l first spoke to Jen she was easily the best choice. She was the only solicitor who discussed a strategy and options which we could consider through my divorce process. My journey has been extremely acrimonious, to the extent l needed to take the very unusual step of obtaining an Occupation Oder. I know Jen worked her fingers to successfully obtain the Order. She was passionate about my plight and wanted to achieve for me something which was unusual and something which would change my life at the time, and it did. I can’t express how hard she worked but it changed both my life and well-being at this emotional and difficult time, suffice to say l’ve nicknamed her ‘The Angel of North Devon’, she came to my rescue. Also, at times when l’ve felt l’ve been in the gutter during my divorce, her strong support, advice, knowledge and encouragement has brought me back to life. Jen doesn’t deliver ‘normal’ she gets to know and understand what you are trying to achieve and tailor makes her approach to your goals. Frankly, you would be mad not to have her represent you.

Steve

Always kept informed

Friendly, genuine, easy to talk to. A friendly and helpful receptionist. Always kept informed, given good advice, trusted judgment. Replied to questions quickly and clearly.

I couldn’t recommend them more highly

I used Slee Blackwell for a dog bite claim. The whole process was handled professionally with all stages clearly explained by Jasmine. Quite honestly I couldn’t recommend them more highly and am more than willing to recommend their services for personal injury claims.

Very few people who had the knowledge to take our case on, yours was the only one

There were very few people who had the knowledge to take our case on and yours was the only one who could deal with it.

Lynn Knight

Tenacious, honest and organised.

Slee Blackwell took the case on and steered it towards settling out of court as much as possible. They’ve been tenacious, honest and organised. Hayley has looked after my interests very well and shown great initiative. She’s had great forward thinking and has both a strong overview and a strong command of detail. I cannot praise Hayley enough for her abilities and care towards me and my case. Justice is a good thing if you can get there and you sometimes can’t get there without taking legal action. That’s why you need intelligent and organised experts on your side. I’m grateful to Slee Blackwell for their efforts which have aided me greatly in releasing myself from being a victim.

Roy Smith

I can guarantee that if we need a conveyancing firm again, we will be coming back to you!

Slee Blackwell was recommended to us by a solicitor who works in a different area of law as a top firm for conveyancing needs. Whilst it wasn’t the lowest quote we received, we decided to go ahead with the recommendation and we are so glad we did! We’ve been working with Andrew Woodland, who has been responsive to all of our questions, quick to get things completed and always a polite and professional in his emails. We have really enjoyed working with him to get through our first house purchase! I can guarantee that if we need a conveyancing firm again, we will be coming back to you!

As an estate agent I've dealt with numerous solicitors in my time ...

A huge thank you to Caroline Bulpett. As an estate agent I’ve dealt with numerous solicitors in my time, and the service received and updates as well as hard work has been truly grateful.

The entire experience with your firm was truly commendable in all aspects.

The entire experience with your firm from inception to conclusion was truly commendable in all aspects. Most refreshing to find a law firm comprising comparatively young personnel but without forfeiting either knowledge or experience.

Derek Mears

Anyone who reads this needs to know is you're in excellent hands

After calling Slee Blackwell & leaving my details Hayley (Bundey) promptly called back & was absolutely fantastic from the start. She listened to my situation, gave clear advice, explained time scales, costs & any potential future pitfalls which may create unexpected costs & after the call I knew i wanted Hayley representing me. It would be too long to explain any of my situation here … all anyone who reads this needs to know is you’re in excellent hands with Hayley & her team. Hayley was professional, true to her word & I consider myself lucky to have found her. I could write much more, heaping praise on Hayley & her team, but I’ll end by writing that after my previous solicitor experience (one of the worst of my life) be very careful who you deal with, even if you know them &/or have dealt with them before, & take this review as an end of your search & just call Hayley!

Simon Garman

Best divorce lawyer in Devon

I would like to highlight just how incredibly professional Paul Jordan is. His friendly, easy, manner and quick wit made a very difficult divorce so much more bearable. Whenever an issue arose he was very quick to respond and if I needed anything explained, he would do so in such a concise way that was easy to understand. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Paul to anyone going through anything similar.

Katie Memon

Chris Holten is an absolute credit to your firm.

I would just like to say that from the moment Chris took my case on he immediately made feel more at ease with the decision I had decided to take in pursuing which I thought I was entitled to, even though many people said I would get nothing. Chris from the outcome was always confident, which was what I needed as at the time I was in a very bad way after losing my Fiance. Chris was and is always polite and would explain everything to me in terms that I could understand. I never at any point put the phone down thinking ‘I have no idea what he meant’ which I am sure can happen with Solicitors not of his calibre. I thank him very much for making me feel I was his only case the whole way through. Nothing was too much trouble. Chris is an absolute credit to your firm and I would have no qualms in recommending him to others should they require his expert advice. Many thanks once again to Chris and your firm for making a very difficult situation as painless as it could possibly have been.

Elizabeth Duncan was an absolute God-send.

Elizabeth Duncan was an absolute God-send. Not only was she knowledgable, intelligent and professional, but she was realistically reassuring, encouraging and supportive – and not blindly led by counsel. She also utilized the expertise of other departments where necessary, thus providing an efficient and effective all round service. She was calm, practical and level headed, and made me feel as if she had all the time in the world time for my case, a rare feat in a busy legal practice. So all in all, I was highly impressed, and extremely grateful.

Katherine van Aardt

Great professionalism and promptness

We were, initially, slightly concerned about using a firm that was not local to our home in Nottingham but our concerns were foundless. Everything was dealt with great professionalism and promptness.
