What people Say about us

I just wanted to write to say how much I appreciated the help and support of Byron and Rachael during the sale of the residence and cattery and the purchase of my new property in Cottingham. These matters can be somewhat daunting especially for an older person but these two lovely people made it seem so easy!!! Their refreshing and caring approach was very welcome.

‘Absolutely terrific company, easy to get to, spacious car park and a lovely and fresh modern office with friendly and helpful staff who always carry a smile! Sara Brown was friendly, funny, kind, so fast responding to my many queries and explained every facet of legal jargon in easy to digest chunks. Very happy is an understatement to say the least! Would not hesitate in the slightest to use again or with recommending them to everyone I know!

Thank you so much to everyone there and especially Sara! You have a fantastic atmosphere and staff who are clearly incredibly passionate about what they do https://static.xx.fbcdn.net/images/emoji.php/v9/f4c/1/16/1f642.png:) Keep up the amazing work!’

Cheryl was recommended to me by a colleague and we used her services for the sale of our London flat. The service provided by Cheryl was exemplary and was by far the best we've ever experienced. It was reassuring that Cheryl would be available to speak to and she went above and beyond to ensure our sale went through smoothly. Many thanks Cheryl!

Cheryl was outstanding with her efficient service on a conveyancing matter. We were kept informed and very little was needed from our part. Delighted the stress was totally taken from us on this process!

Cheryl Leaning has been a fantastic support for me, competent, very friendly and very quick in answering all my questions.

I cannot thank you enough for progressing my divorce, you exceeded my expectations professionally and the empathy you showed kept me focussed.

I was new to Hull and buying a place and didn't know any solicitors. I googled Hull Conveyancers and James Legal was one that came up. I compared it to the others and James Legal had a cracking website, spoke my language and had an up to date Facebook page which seemed to care for its own staff as well as its customers. Cheryl's profile/bio stood out on the website as the person I needed!

I was buying a flat which I'd made an offer on in November, and Cheryl made it all happen and I completed in just under 6 weeks. The service I received from Cheryl was outstanding. - I'm so grateful for all the time and effort she put into getting things done by the very tight deadline and I know this was down to her professionalism, expertise and the relationships she's built up with other solicitors, conveyancers and estate agents. Thank you so much again, it's very much appreciated.

A huge thank you to Cheryl Leaning & also Jaime Burton! Fantastic service and will definitely recommend!

I have dealt with many lawyers and legal bodies during my professional career and I must say I have been extremely impressed by the services offered by Sara. Sara gave clear and concise advise and answered my questions with clarity and tenacity. She also made allowances for my anxieties relating to the legal issue and was patient with listening to my many thoughts. Sara repeatedly sought assurance from me that she was acting correctly on my behalf and I saw from some of her correspondence that I was being represented with loyalty and respect. I feel sara is a credit to your firm and I would bring my business to her should I need to in the future, The legal situation I was in was quite unpleasant however my experience with James Legal was pleasurable, flexible and accommodating.

We used James Legal to purchase our first house, Cheryl Leaning helped us through it all. Answer any question and put our minds at rest when we was so worried! Thank you for everything and you are always recommended to friends and family.

Thank you for your help and patience throughout this lengthy process. Your service has been excellent, the best conveyancing service I have ever received.

Very quick and extremely efficient conveyancing service. I was kept informed every step of the way. I will be using James Legal whenever I need a solicitor.

Fantastic customer service with very friendly knowledgeable staff. Personally I dealt with Jaime Burton who does conveyancing. Couldn’t fault Jaime’s work, made the process extremely easy and dealt with everything for me. 100% recommend her 100% use her again.

James Legal were recommended to me by my previous solicitor who was retiring, as a result of this I was introduced to Simon approximately two years ago. We had an initial meeting and we seemed to strike up a good rapport with each other. As with all business relationships, I believe any success that is achieved is down to the dynamic established between the individuals. Simon and I developed a good understanding, and more importantly the trust of each other, and that helped the relationship. Simon has handled all of our legal queries since we met, in particular, a difficult commercial takeover/purchase of one of my businesses. Everything is always set out clearly by Simon, with different options, recommendations, and details of all potential costs, so there is never a surprise. I have found his help invaluable and his support has allowed me to concentrate on growing my business while he deals with any distractions. As we grow and whenever we need legal advice, Simon will always be my first point of call.

' have for many years used Simon Young of James Legal in connection to my property management business and I have always been very impressed with in the way Simon deals with our instructions promptly and always communicates with us on a regular basis. My staff have always praised Simon on how easy they find dealing with him and how he always delivers on his promises, his approach is exactly what I would expect from a professional lawyer and offering a swift and prompt service is key to his success. James Legal are in my opinion one of the city’s top law firms and we always recommend them to our clients with the reassurance they will deliver every time.

Would again like to thank Cheryl Leaning and the James Legal team for a first class service over the past few mths. Excellent service and speed. Let’s hope the next 12 maths brings a lot more reasons to use a company that is a breath of fresh air in the la industry.

I would just like to take this opportunity to thank Cheryl Leaning for all her hard work and support through the purchase of our new property. I can honestly say as a young couple who were literally going in to our purchase feeling completely blind, Cheryl made everything so easy for us, nothing was ever too much to ask and often she was either emailing or calling as times when we never would have expected a reply. There were a number of occasions when we were unsure of things and Cheryl would, without fail reply to us immediately. I often think people applaud other behind closed doors but we feel Cheryl should be acknowledged for her hard work. We are completely over the moon with our new house and genuinely wouldn’t have had such a positive experience without Cheryl.

Debbie has been very informant and helpful with all aspects of my divorce, explaining everything fully. She has also been very professional throughout the process. I would also recommend Debbie to family/friends that would require legal family advice/help.

I would like to take the opportunity though to extend our thanks and appreciation for ensuring that everything went through smoothly with the purchase of our house. I've heard so many stories about solicitors slowing things down and being awkward to work with, but I was thrilled to get someone as efficient as you instead! You made what could have been a very stressful process as simple and straightforward as possible and for that I am incredibly grateful! You must have saved me a good few headaches. Thank you once again and I would definitely recommend you to any of my friends and family in the future.

I have approached Sara Brown at James Legal twice now in a period of 14 months with 2 separate employment issues and I cannot recommend her or the firm enough. She has gone above and beyond with her assistance to me and has also been very sympathetic whilst very practical about a solution. Every member of the team I have encountered or spoken to have been fantastic and outstanding in their approach to customer care and service. I will happily recommend to anyone every time and will not look anywhere else for advice in the future. Thankyou Sara and team.

I cannot recommend James Legal enough. Ease of access. Just off Mount Pleasant roundabout. Very large FREE car park and flexible opening hours when required. They handled a house sale for me recently and although they were extremely professional they were friendly as well. Jamie Burton acted for me and was on hand for every query I had. All messages were answered within a short space of time and all telephone calls were returned as promised. A+++++

Nick has undertaken complex and demanding work and dealt with matters with confidence and integrity, he is professional in his work but also prepared to 'challenge the system' when required and achieve results.

Lindsey is a 'real person' and not your typical stereotypical Lawyer and I would have no hesitation in recommending Lindsey to any organisation.

Nick has an excellent level of knowledge and i have always found Nick easy to speak to and bounce ideas off as well as being genuine and completely client focussed. He has a great passion for Law and improving how Legal Practices engage with and communicate with their clients and would not hesitate to recommend Nick to family, friends and colleagues.

I contacted James Legal and Pete as we needed a legal document drawing up fairly quickly and not only did he ring me back out of hours that day with an appointment for early the following day the document was also drawn up equally speedily. I found Pete to be very approachable and friendly with a quick understanding of what was required by us and i have no hesitation in recommending Pete and his company to anyone who needs any legal help and advice.

Lindsey prepared my will in a very short time period and certainly knows what she is talking about. She is very professional and trustworthy. If I need any further legal help I will think of Lindsey first.

I recently needed a solicitor on an urgent matter and Nick was the only one who responded quickly to my needs. Nick gave me excellent service and advice and solved my problem with my previous employer quickly and to my favour. I would recommend Nick to anyone and would use his services again without hesitation.

I was impressed with the legal, practical and common sense advice.

Nick is one of the most astute and creative lawyers I have ever encountered. His incisive thinking gets to the heart of a problem immediately and his solutions are invariably of great commercial as well as legal benefit. Nick is also a pleasure to work with.

Thank you for all your hard work with our sale and purchase of houses.

Nick brings a fresh approach the legal community where technology can play the part of a client service differentiator. As I engaged with James Legal to try Legal Video Network personal video conference, Nick quickly grasped the value of LVN to his firm and clients. It is refreshing to work with someone in the Legal community who can accept and adapt the business to benefit from technology.

Thank you for your time and knowledge on all aspects, you answered a million questions for me and have now put my mind at ease a little with regards getting better access to my son, And for this I cannot thank you enough.

Sorry it's been a tricky one but thanks for all of the hard work in chasing everything else you had to do in order to get to the finish line. Hugely appreciated.

Just wanted to say a huge thank you. Cannot express enough how grateful we are for all of your help and advice during this very stressful time. We really do appreciate it.

I have worked with Nick for a few years, Nick has always been very proactive and quick to meet the needs of the business. Nick was recommended to us and I would recommend him for any business that needs advice on a timley and professional basis.

I am sure we will be working together again in the future.

I would thoroughly recommend Lindsey. She has worked on behalf of my grandfather as well as myself and many of my clients. She is extremely personable and extremely knowledgeable in her area of law and always acts in her clients best interests. She explains everything without any unnecessary legal jargon/terms making the client feel at ease.

The Coffee was OK but the help and advice you gave at the free initial meeting was invaluable.

Dealt with by Jamie Burton, may to talk to, good, thorough, professional, friendly service. Easy to contact as mobile numbers are given therefore any urgent questions asked are dealt with same day.

It was a real surprise to have my emails dealt with the same evening.

Thank you very much for sending a copy of my dad's will and for kindness and patience on the morning we attended your office.
It has been greatly appreciated.

Having previously used two trusted conveyancing solicitors in the past, it was with reluctance that I had to find a new one following the retirement of each and drastically reduced performance thereafter. James Legal were marginally dearer than my previous choices but have genuinely managed to add value far beyond any extra cost! I nearly always got to speak to my solicitor (Cheryl) direct or otherwise would get a call back - even after hours! Cheryl always knew my case details and was helpful and proactive, actually driving the sale where so many would drag their feet. The reception staff were friendly, helpful and competent in contrast to other companies where reception seems a last form of defence between client and solicitor. I have no reservations in recommending James Legal to any person or business.

Rachael let us know as soon as anything changed with our situation and we never had to chase for information. A very fast and efficient process

Very happy with the service ! Very polite and speedy responses from Jaime Burton! Will certainly use James Legal again in future and will be recommending this service to other! Thanks again for all your help and hard work!

Jaime was wonderful and kept me informed of my purchase through the whole period - excellent member of the team

Kelly Bannister was extremely efficient and helpful. I would highly recommend her.

Jaime was absolutely fantastic, made the process simple & straightforward for us

A breath of fresh air! A totally relaxing atmosphere in which to discuss the legalities. Also so speedily dealt with.

A great service from Chris.

I was very pleased with Jaime, she responded very quickly to any questions I asked.

Fantastic support, highly recommend.

Meeting Lindsey was a warm and friendly experience and we immediately felt confident in her ability to sort our problems out. Which she did. Many thanks Lindsey.

All staff very friendly, made every visit I made to the office very welcoming. Thank you.

Very pleased, it was completed as quick as possible.

I really appreciate all your hard work and support. Thanks a lot.

I have known Nick for 2 years in his capacity as an instructing solicitor and also as Chair of ILUA. He has instructed members of St Philips on several occasions and shows tremendous professionalism and empathy with clients and everyone connected to him during the legal process, including barristers clerks who tend to be good judges of those who instruct chambers. In short he is a pleasure to deal with and I am pleased to have been asked to recommend him.

Lindsey is very knowledgeable regarding her particular areas of Law, and also the general direction of the legal market and is able to keep ahead of the competition though a combination of innovation and sheer hard work.

Sincere thanks for all your help and hard work with the move. So far so good. Settling in well.

I have hired Nick on a number of occasions to represent us and advise on various legal matters. Nick has always been great to work with as well as trustworthy, reliable and incredibly knowledgeable in all aspects of law. He is also a really nice bloke! 

I would recommend him to anyone without hesitation.

Nick is an innovative businessman who is not afraid to think "outside of the box". He is a motivational employer and excellent business consultant who's ability to identify and communicate change is a powerful package when coupled with a legal background. I have known Nick for almost 10 years and always look forward to projects we collaborate on!

I enjoy working with Nick as he is always so easy to communicate with and he takes the time to asses and consider all details before making decisions and then implements it thoroughly. I would recommend his services to any of my family, friends or colleagues.
