Having dealt with DMH Stallard on two recent occasions I would highly recommend them. Marissa and her team have dealt with the probate for two family members and a house sale and in all instances have been very easy to deal with. Everything has been handled with upmost professionalism, care and courtesy and in a very efficient manner. I felt in safe and reassuring hands which helped to make an upsetting and difficult process a little easier to work though. I will certainly engage their services in the future.
DMH Stallard have carried out the conveyancing on the sale of a flat. At all times they have acted quickly, courteously and professionally. I would thoroughly recommend them .
Slick and efficient conveyancing for the sale of my parents’ house courtesy of Maureen and Isha.
Professional and very attentive and responsive service
The service I have received from Samantha Smith at DMH Stallard could not have been improved upon. It was supremely professional and at the same had that really personal touch as well.
I have used DMH Stallard’s services 3 times now – once for probate and twice for conveyancing. I have consistently found everyone there who has done work for me to be extremely competent, reliable and helpful. Based on my experience, they are certainly the first firm I would think of when seeking any legal services.
A great service from Marian Merritt producing my Will
Buying and selling houses is not an easy process. Having Michael steering us through it was great. Thank you Michael!Jon & Maggan
Michael Derrick was recommended to me when I needed advice regarding a Trust. I couldn’t be more grateful for the recommendation. Michael is highly professional and knowledgeable as well as being very down to earth and understanding. I have really appreciated his swift response to any queries and his ability to explain complex matters in terms I can understand. His kind, reassuring attitude is certainly appreciated if I need some matters explained more than once! I would highly recommend Michael to anyone in need of advice regarding Trust administration.
We had worked with DMH Stallard previously and returned to work with Marian Merritt, for the first time.We found Marian to be very helpful, knowledgeable and engaging.We conducted all our calls remotely and Marian completed our Wills and some additional work very efficiently.We would highly recommend.
Samantha was so helpful, informative, and a pleasure to communicate with. My questions were always answered promptly and professionally- I would definitely recommend without hesitation.
Excellent, personal and swift service from Michael Derrick, thank you
I have recently had a very serious and urgent matter to resolve with regards to my child and separation. Amber Matheson was recommended to me, and I’m so fortunate that Amber was able to take my case straight away. She has been calming me and giving me strength with her excellent professional and sensitive advice in the most stressful situations. The whole court process has been shortened immensely, and desirable outcomes achieved due to Amber’s brilliant knowledge and clear to the point directions. I can’t thank her enough for her hard work. Totally recommend DMH Stallard, especially Amberfor family proceedings🙏
Samantha at DHM Stallard represented me for the sale of my flat and purchase of a house. She gave excellent, timely and accurate support and helped to push through a challenging sale. I would highly recommend DMH Stallard and will be using them again for any future conveyancing needs.
Professional service at is best…DMH Stallard LLP wonderful company and Maureen she is great..!! Thank you
Knowledgeable, Empathic, and Supportive is how I would sum upIngrid McCleave. When Ingrid introduced herself, I found her knowledge on financial matters reassuring. Her guidance and support in writing the Will which is sensitive issue was invaluable.
We would like to commend Maureen Murtagh for her efficiency and professionalism in the dealing with the sale of our property. We were able to complete the sale within a short period of time – thanks to Maureen’s attention to detail and communication skills. Therefore we would highly recommend her services.
I have recently needed to seek legal advice with regard to a close relative contesting my late Father’s will. Ingrid McCleave @ DMH Stallard solicitors has given me sound legal advice as to my rights. This has been a difficult matter for me to deal with and Ingrid has dealt with this very sensitively whilst being totally professional. I have no hesitation in recommending her services.
Emma Weir gave really helpful, sensitive advice to my father on his will. Would highly recommend
Second time of dealing with Maureen for house moves, would not recommend anyone else. Answers questions quickly and make the whole process as stress free as possible. We use DMH Stallard for all our legal requirements and highly recommend them.
Outstanding personal service and patience from Michael Daniels regarding the prolonged and fraught conveyance of our late fathers retirement apartment. Thank you Michael.
Easy, smooth, efficient correspondence with Michael. Thank you.
Samantha Jago worked with myself over a 3 year period in relation to a very difficult Divorce and Child arrangement court order. Excellent, professional and personable service. I hold this individual in high regard for the professionalism I received.
Samantha Jago of DMH Stallard was my solicitor during divorce proceedings. I found her to be incredibly helpful and was left with a real sense that she is not only passionate about her work, but strives for the best outcome for her clients. Everything was communicated clearly and objectively and Samantha was always a phonecall/email away if I had a query, she made the process so much more bearable. Additionally, Samantha’s compassion and good humour were much appreciated during a challenging time.
Separation from my husband made me feel angry, confused and powerless. Samantha Jago helped me understand my rights and obligations whilst I considered my next steps, even though at first I was unsure whether my relationship was ended. Samantha prioritised firming up proper care arrangements for my children as well as protecting my finances. Samantha’s approach is straight talking, yet she remained compassionate throughout with mine and my children’s best interests being forensically considered. Samantha made me feel she was on my side, which is exactly what I needed and deserved to feel.
Professional, kind, knowledgeable and made the process of divorce as easy as it could be , Thank you Samantha Jago. Would highly recommend.
Samantha Jago walked me through the most difficult period of my life with compassion and real clarity of purpose. I’m hugely grateful for the service at DMH Stallard and would highly recommend Samantha to anyone dealing with divorce conflict. A truly five star service.
I used DMH Stallard to progress and conclude my divorce. Samantha Jago is a true credit to this company; she was professional, fast, dedicated and thorough, all whilst being compassionate and understanding. Every issue was dealt with promptly and succinctly. She was ‘on it’ every time. Everything was clearly explained, she offered fair advice, giving me all the options and possible outcomes. I felt thoroughly supported and confident she was getting the best outcome for me, which when dealing with these issues was a challenge. Thank you Samantha!
Samantha acted for me for during my divorce. She was incredibly knowledgeable, efficient and compassionate. Samantha made the whole process as easy as possible and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her.
Michael Daniels came recommended as someone who would be prompt when responding to emails and always picking up call. Michael didn’t disappoint. We bought and sold our properties via DMH Stalled and Michael did an amazing job. He crossed the T’s and dotted the I’s right down to ensuring our mortgage providers corrected my surname on our mortgage offer. Michael was very professional and was able to advise us all through the process. Through no fault of DMH Stallard, Michael was able to ensured that we exchanged before Christmas by directing the vendors solicitors (who fell short). Michael even advised us on moving date and we were able to complete without any issues. I would highly recommend DMH Stallard and in particular Michael. Thank you Michael. Beatrice and Brendan
DMH Stallard were fantastic for the recent sale of my wifes property. The response time and straightforward way of doing business was at a high level. We would use them again.
DMH Stallard handled my divorce (which became protracted due to hold ups at the court) and subsequent property transfers. Everyone working on the case was helpful, polite and professional throughout.
Very pleased with the service I received from Amber Matheson with regard to a family matter. Amber was professional, knowledgeable and approachable. Good communication and always responded to all calls and emails in a timely manner. Highly recommend Amber.
Instructing a solicitor is something you should never wish to do, however sometimes it comes out of necessity! I was going through a seemingly amicable divorce when pound signs saw the eyes of the Ex and it was at this point when I needed some sound legal advice. Amber Matheson gave me nothing but the most honest and to the point advice. Without going into the nitty gritty, with her input it saw the most positive outcome I could have hoped for which saved me not only financially but took away a lot of unnecessary stress. I would highly recommend this firm and especially Amber for any family related matters or advice in this field.
My wife and I used Michael Daniels of DMH Stallard as our solicitors for our recent house sale. Michael is a rock of common sense and good advice and was highly responsive to each and every request from ourselves and the buyer’s solicitors. Ours was not a straightforward house sale and we relied on DMH Stallard for good advice and fast responses – they never let us down and we relied on their excellent advice for every decision. I can’t recommend him and DMH Stallard enough if you are looking for good legal and conveyancing advice.
Excellent service and advice. Paperwork on time and very accurate.Would recommend strongly
Maureen and her team have been awesome with us for years, they have helped my family buy, sell and remortgage 6 or 7 properties in the UK. She is lovely and a force to be reckoned with, in a very good way, that’s what you want in a good solicitor.I highly recommend her and her team.
Over the last 8 years we have used Maureen Murtagh for conveyancing on a number of properties and we have no doubt that she is head and shoulders above any other solicitor we have used. Maureen is always professional, efficient and easily contactable making her a pleasure to work with. We would highly recommend Maureen.
A superb, reliable and personable service delivered by Michael, for the purchase of our new home.Michael was responsive, professional and kept us well informed at every stage. I would absolutely recommend using his services.
Very professional team and everything was done to high standards and on time. Maureen was too good and we would not hesitate to recommend her to anybody.
Very helpful, friendly and professional
Very grateful to Samantha Jago for her advice in respect of a complicated divorce. Would recommend 100%
In the past 3 years I have purchased 2 houses and sold 1 with DMH Stallard. Each time using Michael Daniels and his team. We all know buying and selling houses is complicated, can take some time and be frustrating. With Michael you can rest assured that if they need to work hard and go the extra mile to achieve a deadline, or chase things through, they will. They always do their absolute best to get to where you need to be. Thank you to them!
Michael Daniels was recommended to us by a friend and has been working with us since September 2021 to sell our flat, which was never going to be a straight forward sale for many reasons.Michael has worked tirelessly and patiently to make our latest sale happen. We completed yesterday and we will are both very grateful for your support during what has been a very stressful time.
Recently sold a house and bought a new house in Cornwall. This was all handled by Maureen Murtagh at DMH Stallard. We were very pleased with everything they did for us and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them. We will certainly use them again as we felt very confident in their hands.
Great service, effective and efficient.
Highly recommend Michael Daniels and all at DMH Stallard. Fast, smooth and efficient conveyancing of our property and all completed in record time. Amazing! Thank you.
Michael Daniels handled the recent sale of my property which became very drawn output and complicated. He was always highly professional and understanding of what I was going through. He was a great support through the whole process. It all ended well and a big thank you to Michael.
Michael Derrick made the whole process of probate so easy. Communication was exemplary throughout and their fees was reasonable and fair. Highly recommend.
