What our clients say about us

Testimonials
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 am now a proud home owner and I can't thank Mariana enough for all her hard work and dedication. 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.
