Wills Client, September 2016
I’d like to say a huge thank you. This whole mess has been the biggest worry since my separation. The worry about maybe having to go to court has been there hanging over me for literally years.
Because you now represent me, within a short space of time the whole sorry episode now has light at the end of the tunnel. And for that I cannot thank you enough.
The positive effect you’ve had on my family, our lives, cannot be underestimated!!
From the bottom of our hearts, thank you.
PO, Matrimonial Client, July 2016
I would like to place on record the excellent attention and advice given to myself and (client EW) . In my opinion, Mr Graham Hogarth is a very experienced solicitor and courteous and without doubt from a “laymans” point of view is realistic and extremely good at conveying his point in a well researched manner. He has helped me in the past and in the last few weeks and is always willing to speak to you. I would have no hesitation in recommending Graham Hogarth and your firm to anyone.

Howells solicitors have all passed customer satisfaction and I was very happy with how Charlotte was dealing with me. All the lovely, kind, help and support they have provided me with is much appreciated. Howells solicitors should be privileged to have such helpful lovely kind people working for them. Words cant describe how pleased and privileged I am with the service. Once again I would like to say a big thank you to Charlotte and the rest of the team for all the help and support and advise that you all at Howells Solicitor have given me over the last couple of months which have been very difficult for me because of discrimination against me on grounds of disability. A big thank you.

“A big thank you for your help, understanding and professionalism” Fran Abbott, Conveyancing Client, Oct 2015
“I would like to commend you and Howells LLP for your constant professional help throughout the past 6 months. From my dealings with you, from the first instance you did not belittle my situation or treat me as inferior considering I qualified for Legal Aid and I was not directly paying for your time, or the services you provided. You always treated me with respect, care and consideration, listening to my grievances or explanations patiently before giving relevant advice. Your attitude towards me and the case was always a professional, positive and supportive one, consistent and unwavering. Without your help I would not have reached the stage I got to, and may not have made wise decisions. I would highly recommend you to anyone who needed an employment lawyer and commend you for providing the highest standard of service with no bias or personal agenda whatsoever.
MR, Employment client, Solicitor: Clare Fowler, September 2015
“My discrimination case itself was a trauma in my work history but it granted me this privilege to know one of the greatest lawyers in the UK. A lawyer who is not only expert in her profession but also genuinely committed to justice and human values.
I would like to thank you for helping me by your thoughtful guidance and outstanding legal advice all through the procedure from the start.
Also, I would like to thank you for your prompt responses to my correspondences, being available when I needed to talk to you and your patience when listening to what I had to say. Please accept my sincerest appreciations for everything you’ve done for me.”

Mrs S A A., Civil Litigation Client
“I don’t think that everyone is as lucky to have had someone so dedicated and sincere working alongside them. You have been so patient, empathetic and understanding Amy, I really could have not asked for more, and it’s never gone unnoticed. You make what is essentially a very formal and indifferent relationship and made it personal and warm.
It’s going to make a huge difference, you have literally helped give me a chance to get life back on track in so many ways. Thanks for trusting in my integrity. What you do matters to you and it shows. Thank you!”
J.L, Employment and discrimination client, August 2015

Howells has recently acted for us in the sale of a property. We were acting as Executors under a relatives will and the transaction wasn’t straight forward but it was handled expertly and professionally. The client service was excellent and Donna Peers, who handled our case, kept us informed and was always available to speak. I would certainly recommend Howells to others.

Conveyancing Client, May 2015
“The work and time spent on this particular case has been amazing and we thank you very much for it all. it has been more than a successful outcome, the fact your work is so tightly covered , even the DWP wont be appealing, it has shown that unfairness can be challenged justly. .. …The most important outcome is, because of your hard work, we have gone from 4 to zero “spare” bedrooms, we are currently now exempt from a reduction in HB, and we have no rent arrears. That is the best possible outcome. Thank you once again for your ongoing excellent service from day one.”

I would like to thank Rachel Clayton, for her fantastic professional manner in how she has handled my delicate issues. When I came to Rachel I was at breaking point, but she has given me hope and got me a nice settlement. I will be strongly recommending her.
I just wanted to let you know I appreciate everything you have done and the support you have given me. My OT has agreed to put a special door opening system on my new flat so I can go out by myself. There isn’t words to express how much all the help and support you have given me means, and the outcome of it, my independance, to be ‘normal’ like everyone else. To be able to get outside when ever I want. You have given me my life back, I will always be grateful to you for that!
Thank you for the very professional way in which you handled our claim and for your kindness – I always felt it was very easy to discuss matters with you. We have received exceptional service in a timely, totally professional and caring manner….always!! I will certainly continue to engage your firm for any future legal matters.
L. F, Clinical Negligence Client
“You have truly lived up to the reputation as the region’s best’
JP, Immigration Client
“I would like to say a big thank you to everyone at Howells, my case has been ongoing since October 2012 and it has taken a lot of time, effort and patience to finally bring an end to this case in which Howells did an excellent job in fighting my corner. A lot of time was spent preparing statements for me, being available to advise on legal matters and preparing me for the court room itself. The witness statements produced by Howells were absolutely faultless and the attention to detail filled me with so much confidence I knew the team were putting 100% effort into my case and I can’t thank them enough for their professionalism and customer service. Although the tribunal itself was very stressful I will look back with fond memories of dealing with Howells and I would have no problems in recommending them to anyone in the future. Thank you all.”
D.D, Employment Client
“I was ready to go with the first solicitor recommended by the funeral service company after the death of my father, but was advised to shop around and luckily found Howells to be over 3 times less expensive without scrimping on service.
The probate solicitor assigned to help me manage my father’s estate, really went the extra mile by offering useful down-to-earth advice on how to handle things over and above the services we engaged her for. As for the main probate and home title transfer requirements, these progressed much quicker than quoted by the original more expensive solicitors practice.
Overall, I’m more than happy to recommend Howells probate services for both value for money and efficiency.”
Jeff, Wills and Probate Client
“Thank you so much for bringing me such wonderful news, thank you for all your help. Without you I wouldn’t have got my home repaired to a living standard or have been compensated for the damage or the stress.”
Felson, Housing Client
“I just wanted to thank you for making my application for a Grant of Probate go so smoothly. I was very apprehensive about dealing with the legal aspects of my husband’s affairs, especially when still so shocked by his death, but I was reassured by the way you dealt with my case so efficiently and with compassion. I look forward to meeting you again when I come in to discuss re-writing my will.”
Edwina, Wills and Probate Client
“I have had the privilege having represented by Howells Solicitors on a number of cases varying from Immigration, to Civil and Family law. I cannot overly thankful for work done by this incredible team of people who put service at the forefront of their business.”

MT, Civil Law Client
“Thanks for all your ‘spot on’ children’s advice and also the advice which you have given to me over the last 8 months. The letters, statements, position statement were all brilliant. I took your advice which paid off as it taught me there are ways of communication positively without reacting! I came to you anxious, angry and upset and you helped me to minimise this as the case moved forward.”
Child Law Client
“I simply cannot put into words how thankful and grateful I am for your help. You saved me my children. There is not enough words I could say to thank you enough.”

“Dealing with Howells has been an extremely pleasing and easy going experience. Your staff are very friendly. I found (my solicitor) to be very knowledgeable and meticulous with her work. I couldn’t have won my case without her. Even my barrister advised the bundle provided and the statements drawn up were the best she had ever been provided which is a credit to her and the efficiency of your company.”`
DD, Employment Client
“I would wish to pass on my and my wifes gratitude for the successful result your department have obtained for us… …Katherine (Howells Immigration Trainee Solicitor) has done an amazing job for my wife, leading us both through the detailed format, with full contact and assistance at every stage.
