Over the last 6 weeks or so, Sadie and Belinda have been working incredibly hard on our conveyancing matter. We would just like to express our enormous thanks to them both . Their experience and knowledge of the process was exemplary and hastened the process. There was some urgency to completion of the purchase and it is with much appreciation that completion was actually earlier than anticipated. We highly recommend their services and would like to pass on our sincere thanks for the professiona...

I dealt with James Woods who was nothing short of brilliant. Lisa Allbutt dealt with the conveyancing & was efficient & approachable. The reception staff were always cheerful & courteous.  Whitehead Monckton is, without doubt, the best out there. 
I thank you for your care, compassion and understanding during what has been a form and emotion filled roller coaster. You have made the process bearable, simple and I have felt held every step of the way. I’m so glad I chose you to help me.
We would just like to thank you for your work on our first house purchase.  We have found you efficient, patient and professional at all times even when under sudden time pressures.

As a result we would have absolutely no qualms recommending you and your firm to anybody else seeking the same service, and would happily use your services again should...

You have been exceptional in all the help and advice you have provided. 
When I embarked on the project of sorting out my will and the other matters, I did not really expect the process to be so positive, so I have to thank you for the fact that everything was so straightforward and indeed rather enjoyable. It is a relief not to have to worry about such things any more. 
Suzanne Head
I really must congratulate you on the precise and thorough way in which you have, from start to finish, carried out the handling of the estate, and also for the courteous way in which you have dealt with all my queries.

You set out my choices regarding the different ways of coming to an agreement clearly and in a language that was easy to understand, and were clear as to the potential costs involved. You took time to understand my wishes and it was clear that you took those into account when giving your advice, and you discussed what for me, were emotive subjects, in a relaxed and yet professional manner.
When a potential problem arose I felt able to ring you, and you helped enormously in sorting it out quickly. I knew I could trust you to keep my best interests at the heart of all that you did.

Brigette
We were extremely satisfied with the way you dealt with our Will arrangements recently. You listened intently to what we wanted to achieve in replacing our existing Wills.  Your professionalism and knowledge in advising us, gave us complete confidence in your abilities to produce our new Wills.  We were impressed in the timescale it took to put the new Wills in place. Thank you 
The advice I was given was precise, and clear explanations given as required. In addition the process was completed within a week as requested by me and at no additional cost. I have no hesitation in recommending the Tax and Estate Planning department of Whitehead Monckton. 
We thank you very much for all of your help and advice in drawing up these Lasting Powers of Attorney. Until we consulted you regarding drawing up our Wills and you suggested putting Lasting Powers of Attorney we had not even heard of this and I must admit that initially undertaking this seemed rather daunting. However, the matter in which you explained everything to us and gave us the benefit of your advice made the process very straightforward and a pleasure to do.
Mr and Mrs B G Thompson
Thank you so much for your hard work and helpful attitude towards the sale of our business - it is really appreciated. I would most definitely recommend you. 
I cannot thank you enough for what you have done for me. I was in a very dark place when I came to see you but you helped me so much for that I am truly grateful. I hope I will never need you again but if I do, I will make a point of coming to you and I will of course recommend you to my friends.
Tina
They're extremely positive and proactive in engaging and supporting charities - they're professional, helpful and focused on the needs of the client.
They're thoroughly accessible and understand the local situation, but with the service of a larger firm. 
I would like to thank you for your invaluable help and advice over the last 16 months.  I wish you every success and all my very best wishes.
It has been a very difficult time and I would just like to say a very big thank you for all your assistance and advice. Your cooperative and objective approach to matters, availability and flexibility have, in no short measure, made what has been achieved possible. Thankfully, you were the ever present voice of reason. I am very grateful to you and I will have no hesitation in retaining your services again.

Maggie Thorogood
Thank you so much to you for all of your help and brilliant assistance. 
I want to thank you for all of your advice, and particularly the sensitivity which you brought to the process. I think you could see from the outset that both (my wife) and I were coming at this from a constructive angle and that we didn't need anything other than coaching, guidance and your professional experience. Allowing us the space to develop the divorce particulars essentially between ourselves meant that we have maintained a level of communication and trust.
Tom

Thank you very much for your help and advice this morning. It was so smooth and professional that we will definitely look to use Whitehead Monckton in the future. 
This whole situation was a shock and, due to the logistics, a nightmare for us to deal with. Having had just that one meeting with Garry, he took absolutely everything on board and led us through every step of the way, superbly.   Simply they made our journey a pleasant one.  
Keith Anthony Hayward , Southend
Absolutely delighted at the level of service I received recently.  I had an extremely urgent probate to obtain and it was delivered before I thought possible.   I was always dealt with professionally and efficiently.  Well done.  Good job!
