What our clients say about us

We have nothing we feel could be improved - we were very pleased with the service we received [from Alison New and Judith Dagger] throughout our house purchase and sale.

-R.H November 2015
Just a note of thanks [Jill Cade]  for the work you carried out for us on the purchase of our property.  It was a pleasure to have all our calls answered quickly and professionally, such a difference from solicitors we have used in the past.  Thank you.

-D.P November 2015
Jenny [Greenland] was excellent during the two instructions that she completed on my behalf. Correspondence was always forth coming and very clear, I had every confidence in her.

-H.M November 2015
Having known David Palmer for many years I have complete confidence in him.

-D.S November 2015
Always absolutely first class service from David [Palmer] - proactive, thorough and always quick to respond.

We have dealt with Martin Cooper for a number of years....cannot speak highly enough of him and his services

This is just to say, on behalf of both of us, a very big THANK YOU to you, Imogen [Moran] , for your helpful advice and friendly service in creating wills which exactly meet our needs.

Lorna [Hewitt]  always provides an excellent and friendly service; I have recommended her many times to friends and family and will confidently do so in future.

Excellent service on our sale. Jill [Cade] always answered emails promptly (usually same day) and gave us the confidence that everything was handled professionally.

-N.S October 2015
We were very pleased with the way Julian [Dagger] handled our affairs, as always. Very professional. Would recommend him to anyone.

Alison [New] I would recommend to any future clients of BLB Solicitors.

I really appreciate how hard you [Sarah Jackson] worked keeping me informed at every stage, supporting me at a very emotional and stressful time, and always being available to discuss any issue. Thank you.

-S.C October 2015
We have been clients of BLB Trowbridge for 40 plus years and have always felt very well looked after. All staff have always been very professional, but at the same time courteous with their advice, no matter what.

-A.G October 2015
Victoria [Williams]  was extremely efficient and kept me appraised of the situation throughout.

-S.P October 2015
I have had the pleasure of instructing Martin Cooper on several occasions to deal with my private affairs. Martin's concise and exacting style in dealing with not only my affairs but also my mothers, has been very helpful. He explains everything carefully in a way that whilst to the point, is also friendly and considerate, especially as my mother is elderly. We will be retaining BLB for all our affairs for the foreseeable future. Highly recommended.

-T.L October 2015
I would like to thank you [Sarah Jackson] and Philippa for your professional and compassionate approach to my very troubled time.

-M.M October 2015
Excellent service dealing with a long and complicated situation. Great support when things seemed bleak, extremely well versed in all aspects that arose during my situation. If hadn't been for the perseverance and confidence of my solicitor [Annette Taylor]  I may have given up, therefore would never have got the excellent outcome she had worked so hard to achieve for me.

-J.P October 2015
Excellent support, advice and communication, as always, from Richard [Bowater] . He is an excellent professional and great to work with to get things done.

Very helpful with the conveyancing [Julian Dagger] . I would highly recommend or 're use' for any future house purchases.

- D.D October 2015
I did find it was easier to get to speak with Judith [Dagger] than I have experienced in my previous involvement with a number of firms

-E.R October 2015
Thank you [to Sarah Jackson, Family Mediator] for all your help and patience. You have a real skill and I appreciate all you have done for us.

-D.B October 2015
I received excellent service both from Julian [Dagger]  and Claire. They provided me with the advice I needed in a clear, precise and prompt manner. I couldn't have asked for more. BLB, Julian and team will be my first port of call for any and all my future legal needs.

-M.L September 2015
Couldn't have asked for more - perfect service from Jill [Cade]

-N.S September 2015
My property purchase was handled very professionally and the guidance provided by Jill [Cade] was really useful.

-C.H August 2015
We found Imogen Moran to be extremely helpful with very sound advice . We were able to communicate easily with her.
We are very satisfied with every aspect of our dealings with Imogen and BLB Solicitors.

-P.J September 2015
Overall I was very pleased with the residential conveyancing service provided, particularly the timely response to questions put by me in response to information provided by Judith [Dagger].

-R.W September 2015
There was nothing more that Lorna [Hewitt] could have done to have bettered the communication. Having been impressed with Lorna's professional and speedy handling of the case, I have already asked if she would deal with all other property purchases for us.

-A.B September 2015
Jill, just wanted to say thank you. Once again you were wonderful and so professional and so understanding of mum's situation.

-K.K August 2015
I am most impressed with the work you [Frank Scott-Ashe]  did for me and my company. As such, I will be using you and your company in the future should I require it. Obviously, I cannot say when that will be, but please know, I was happy with the work, and shall be passing your name forward to those I can, where I can.

-A.H August 2015
[Mariana] is  at hand to discuss any worries through a stressful time.

- T.W August 2015
Hello Jill [Cade] ,  I just wanted to thank you for all of your help during my house move. You were super efficient and I would be very happy to recommend you to friends and family so will keep all of your contact details going forward.

- C.H July 2015
Now that we have settled into our new home I think it only right to thank you [Jill Cade] for all your assistance with the sale of our flat and subsequent purchase of our new HOME. When things were not going so well you always encouraged us to look forward and not to worry, even a shoulder to cry on at times! So for that we are ever thankful to you and your team and will definitely recommend you to others.

- N.V-E July 2015
Jill, you've been an absolute star looking after the sale of my old home, and I couldn't have asked for more - it's been a pleasure doing business with you and I will recommend you to everyone I know!

-N.B July 2015
Mariana was indispensable! She guided us through both sale and purchase taking all the stress away from us. She ensured we got the results we needed and acted above and beyond all expectations. Thank you so much.

-D.P July 2015
We would like to say thank-you [Jill Cade] for all of your efforts and help in buying our first home together and making the process so easy for us. We really appreciate your call to [the builder] about the boiler flue which resulted in them taking action and they are looking into it for us.

-S.R June 2015

I just wanted to drop you [Catherine Smith ] a quick note to express my sincere thanks. My divorce has been a trying time for me, and you have been a real "rock" of support. You will never know how your calm guidance and straightforward advice has helped me through this. Thank you for everything that you did for me and the children.

- M.L June 2015
Thank you [Jill Cade]  for your work and help on the sale and purchase of our properties. It was a bit stressful at times but we got there.

- C.T June 2015
The handover went perfectly on Friday, and everything is as it should be. My sincere thanks for the exemplary service you [Julian Dagger] provided for my purchase. I will certainly recommend your services, and will use BLB for all legal matters in the future.

- R.D June 2015

Thank you all (especially Jill Cade) for your assistance in what has been an unexpectedly awkward process.

All time, effort and assistance has been much appreciated.

-L.S June 2015
I have recently had the pleasure of employing the services of Frank Scott Ashe in the sale of my company. In what has been a challenging experience, I have at all times found Frank  pragmatic, whilst also having an outstanding eye for detail.
I would recommend him to anyone

-J.A February 2015

Just a quick note to say thank you for helping me to sell [my property]. It was a test and trial for me, you [Julian Dagger] and Vicki in trying to secure an amicable agreement in order to exchange.  So once again my thanks for your patience and assistance.

-C.W May 2015
I just wanted to say thank you [Annette Taylor] so much for your advice with my case, it has been absolutely spot on and thorough.  I believe that my children have been made safe with the outcome and I couldn’t ask for more than that.

- E.H.  May 2015
Thank you on all your [Jenny Greenland]  help and kindness and advice while you dealt with our mother’s estate.

- P.G April 2015
Overwhelming as it all seemed to us at the beginning [Probate] , it appears to have gone quite smoothly and we appreciate your [Jenny Greenland] professional assistance and support throughout.

-N.M February 2015

BLB is an excellent traditional firm of solicitors that understands the meaning of service and communication.  The link from lead solicitor, to assistant, on to the PA and Reception is seamless.  Always ready to talk and meet when necessary. Excellent, clear and concise communication.

-D.T May 2015

Dear Julian [Dagger] and Claire,  Thank you both for your work and communication throughout the process of selling my father's property.  Much appreciated.

-H.A April 2015
Thanks to .......... Julian [Dagger]  for the service you have provided on my first house purchase. Your prompt replies to my numerous questions have been gratefully received, and Julian had a great way of explaining the contract when we met in December. All this has made house buying as stress free as possible.

- R.L April 2015
As first time buyers, we totally depended on Mariana [Crawford] for her input and felt that we were in good hands.

- M.A March 2015
David [Gazzard]  handled my case in a professional and friendly manner.  He always explained things in a clear and easy to understand manner.  He was always reassuring and I felt I was in good and safe hands.

- I.K March 2015
David [Gazzard] was able to explain everything in understandable ways and without patronising me in any way.  When I was very weak and unwell he adjusted his speech appropriately.  David worked diligently on our behalf and our outcome was as good as we could have hoped for.

- B.H June 2014
We’ve had excellent service from David [Gazzard] and are delighted with the amazing result achieved.

- A.D January 2015
It was my first time buying a property and so felt a little apprehensive about the whole process. Mariana [Crawford] of BLB Solicitors quickly made me feel at ease and spent time explaining what I was required to do. I have not hesitation in recommending BLB Solicitors to anyone looking for their first step on the property ladder.  Mariana was caring and had a very professional manner.

- J.W February 2015
Many thanks to you [Judith Dagger]  and the team who contributed towards making this transaction successful. When I first contacted BLB solicitors I didn't know much about the firm and what to expect. The staff I dealt with at your branch..  have been so polite and helpful. You personally have dealt with my case in a professional manner and delivered on time. I am pleased with the service I received. It exceeded my expectation. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend BLB solicitors to anyone in future.


-A.J March 2015
Divorce is never an easy time but I have to say that Heidi helped me every step of the way.  Heidi was friendly and professional at all times and I got a very good settlement at the end, which I have to say was down to her experience and tenacity.  Thank you Heidi and BLB for getting me through a very difficult time in my life.

- M.C. March 2015
We were impressed with the thoroughness of the work and the investigations carried out. We greatly appreciated [Mariana Crawford's] understanding of our "unusual" circumstances (living abroad) and how they accommodated us. We will certainly use BLB again when buying or selling a house.

- K H February 2015

We have used BLB Solicitors [Mariana Crawford] on three separate occasions, and have always found them to be friendly, efficient and accessible. Thank you!

-P.M March 2015



Sarah Jackson has shown a great deal of patience with the slow and sometimes erratic progress of the divorce I have been dragged into. Sarah has guided me with professionalism through a process which I have found very sad, exhausting, bewildering and frightening at times. Her advice has always been helpful, frank and sober, which is what I have needed. She has worked hard to make progress whilst keeping control of costs. Whilst being a source of support for me, her influence has also been diplomatic and pragmatic, leading, I hope, towards greater understanding and a peaceful settlement between my wife and me.


- MS February 2015
I have no hesitation in recommending BLB Solicitors [Mariana Crawford]  for house conveyancing. The whole process was completed very professionally. All requests from vendor and purchaser where actioned without delay, hence the whole process appeared to run its course very smoothly and without undue stress to the vendor.

-G.A February 2015

Mariana Crawford was a thoroughly professional approachable and pleasant solicitor to work with. She provided sound advice and ensured the process completed within the required time frame.

-M.C January 2015
[Mariana Crawford was] extremely professional, highly efficient, very helpful but with a friendly approach which helps to give clients confidence in particular when dealing with property transactions which can sometimes be a nerve racking experience. Would highly recommend and definitely use again.


-S.S January 2015
I just want to let you know Sarah [Jackson]  how much I appreciate your professionalism and your style which is calm and clear. I would like to express my thanks for the way you kept me in touch with all the developments in the case and provided support and advice which led to a satisfactory conclusion. Thank you also for the clarity with which you explained the options, which made it easy for me to make any decisions.

- S.A January 2015
Excellent service overall. Very speedy to see me and I've always been kept up-to-date with progress, however small. Available for advice at any time and nothing seems too much trouble. My expectations are well managed and I am given all the relevant information to help understand costs, timings and actions. Would certainly recommend Sarah [Jackson] and BLB Solicitors.

-C.H January 2015

Sarah [Jackson] is a very professional and compassionate person who when needed will fight your corner .....very good at what she does, in fact I would say the best!!

-M.W January 2015

I will start by expressing my satisfaction with regard to the handling of my court proceeding, not just your expertise at the representation but also your interaction with myself. I felt so comfortable dealing and working with you.

- G.N November 2014
I have used the services of BLB Solicitors for commercial and personal issues. Frank Scott-Ashe did a great job for me. None of the solicitors I used in the past have the flexibility and clarity I receive from BLB Solicitors. They are very approachable, explain everything clearly, offer superb advice. Beyond my expectations. First Class.

- FSD January 2013
Angeli Dunkerley is a highly skilled and experienced Solicitor who I would recommend for guidance in regard to Family Law. On each and every occasion, I received clear and precise advice, with the options available to me carefully explained, that included an open and honest assessment of the strength and weaknesses at each stage of the case.  A personable, enthusiastic and a professional service; I have no reservations in recommending Angeli Dunkerley for legal representation.

- K.C March 2013
I am very glad I chose Angeli as she appears to be very professional and not money-grabbing which is what my perception of solicitors have been to date. I am very happy with her and her decisions and advice so far (and no offence but I don't like solicitors) so for me to say that she must be good.

- M.S January 2014
I would like to thank you for all your help and advice in what was the worst time of my life it was greatly appreciated.

- V.P. February 2014
I have been represented by BLB Solicitors on a difficult, involved and protracted issue recently and I am impressed by their professionalism, care for their client and thoroughness in dealing expediently with my case and always with my best interests at the fore. The have kept me informed on a regular basis of progress and have maintained regular contact throughout. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to others.

- B.D  June 2014
Dear Heidi. It's been a bit of a rollercoaster over the last 3 years and I would like to formally thank you for your help and support, your advice and your understanding. You must deal with a few of these things but I genuinely felt like I was the only client on your books and like a few other people who have been around for the duration, I really feel as though I couldn't have got to this point in my life without you.

- A H May 2014
Dear Annette - I would like to say “thank you” for the support I have received from you and the BLB team. I shall not hesitate to recommend.

- M.S. June 2014
I have always found the residential conveyancing team at BLB solicitors to be very good both from a personal point of view and from recommending their service to clients. They are very professional and competitively priced - which is no bad thing in the current climate. The firm is big enough to handle various aspects of legal work and yet small enough that you get to work directly with the partners rather than with a trail of assistants. I have been working as a professional in Bath for 25 years and during this time I have used their services a number of times. I think that when it comes to any aspect of legal work you want to be treated as an individual and I’ve always felt as though I’ve been dealt with both as an individual and that my business is important. Overall I find them to be professional, efficient, charming and helpful. Always concluding matters in a timely fashion.

- CP February 2013
Many thanks for all your help and support.

- L.R. May 2013
The administration of my late uncle’s estate has now been concluded..... Imogen Moran has been brilliant throughout – she put up with my stupid questions (why is that lawyers always make the most difficult clients?!) and dealt with the whole matter efficiently and professionally. I couldn’t have done it without her help and I was very impressed with the service from BLB. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you to anyone in a similar situation.

- CP-B May 2013
I felt nervous approaching a solicitor to help me through my divorce, but Jo Morris was so friendly and professional that I always felt I was in safe hands. She was excellent at giving me all the advice I needed, but never pushed me into making decisions I would have been uncomfortable with. It was that gentle support, always backed up by expert knowledge, that I appreciated in a difficult and muddled time. I would highly recommend her services.

- A.W. May 2013
Thank you so much for your kind and loving words. It really is a huge accomplishment that we couldn't have achieved without your involvement.

- E.H. July 2013
Excellent service in a highly professional manner without ever feeling that I was simply 'another client'. All my questions were answered quickly and intelligently and I couldn’t ask for more.

- T.C. 17 July 2013
I would like to thank you very much for all your support, help & guidance during today's hearing at Bath County Court. I really felt that you attending was incredibly beneficial and I am very pleased and relieved with the outcome.

- C.O. July 2013
My thanks to you for handling everything so effectively and bringing the whole unfortunate episode to as good a conclusion as could have been anticipated.

- D.G. July 2013
I was very happy with the service which Annette Taylor of BLB Solicitors provided.  I was always kept informed and advised appropriately and always felt that Annette was working for me rather than to earn money, which is something I have experienced working with other firms of solicitors previously. Annette achieved a more than satisfactory outcome quickly and effectively and at well under the quote she provided.  I wouldn’t hesitate in using Annette Taylor and BLB Solicitors again.

- C.H. August 2013
Dear Annette

Thank you very much for helping me through a very difficult time. I really appreciate the kindness and support by both you and Cathy.

- J.B. September 2013
After more than 40 years of marriage I decided to leave the family home and seek a divorce. Throughout the process Barbara Taylor and then, following her retirement, Annette Taylor, provided sympathetic, professional advice and made the whole process manageable for me. I just want to say a huge thank you to the whole team for the high level of service. I would have no hesitation in recommending BLB to others in the future.

- J.C. October 2013
Having worked with Angeli on a personal and complex legal matter, I'd absolutely recommend her to anyone who needs professional, attentive and empathetic advice and representation. Her friendly and competent attitude made me feel in safe hands during a stressful and emotionally traumatic time. Thank you Angeli!

- C.M. November 2013
I would like to thank you so much for all you have done. Serendipity led me to BLB and it was to prove to be the best thing I could have done. Not only did you provide clear and realistic advice but also were proactive and sensitive. You had the compassion and experience to recognise a need and the connections to put me in touch with Chris and Miles whose help was invaluable. I cannot thank you all enough.

- P.H. December 2013
Mrs Dunkerley, may I take this opportunity to thank you for your help and good advice on the matter of my divorce. I appreciated the efficient and professional manner that you demonstrated at all times.

- S.B February 2014
From my first appointment I knew that Angeli Dunkerley was the right Solicitor. The service was friendly yet professional everything was expedited quickly in a very positive manner, I was left feeling that regardless of the final outcome I would achieve the best possible settlement. I did and would not hesitate to recommend her, especially if your partner is particularly difficult as mine was.

- D.R. August 2012
I can highly recommend the services of Mrs Jo Morris who recently sorted out issues arising from my divorce in an extremely efficient and professional manner, yet was friendly and approachable throughout.

- J.W. August 2012
