Recent Client Feedback:

As an elderly person I was treated with respect. Very satisfied client.


Anya Hoyland is always incredibly prompt in her responses, and her letters to my adversary were polite but incredibly incise. Her knowledge is superb and she always explains the cost/loss benefit with care and consideration. I would not hesitate to recommend her to everyone. Her kindness to me whilst I was under incredible strain and heartache cannot be expressed sufficiently. I will be forever grateful to her.


I was extremely satisfied with the level of service provided by Slee Blackwell Solicitors. My case was dealt with efficiently and effectively. I never had to ‘chase anything up’ because everything was dealt with in such a timely manner. I would definitely recommend [Anya Hoyland] for her knowledge and expertise.
