What Clients Say

I have been working with them for many years. I’m a commercial landlord and have issues all the time with tenants whether it’s in relation to a dilapidation claim, rent review or the renewal of a lease. I know I can rely on them to give me the most cost-effective advice. My business is my livelihood and I rely on them and have been doing so over the years to tell me what’s right for my business. I always keep going back to them as I feel they always treat me as number one.

Came to Longfords after making several telephone calls and I wanted a document preparing at short notice in respect of some loan facilities. Not only were they able to turn it around within a short period of time, but also at a very competitive price. I couldn’t have asked for more. Would use them again, and have recommended them to my friends and family. I don’t do that lightly!

I have been using Longford’s for many years. Being in the construction trade I have used all sorts of lawyers from big multi partner firms to niche specialist outfits. But Longfords are always my first port of call, especially for site developments/disposals etc.

I know that I can rely on them to get all the paperwork ready for me on time.

I instructed them to act for me in relation to a property purchase. Being a first-time buyer, I was nervous and anxious. However, I was reassured and kept informed throughout. Ash was always available at the end of a telephone line when the documents/ emails got too much for me. To top it all Longfords fees were very competitive and certainly cheaper than some of the online conveyancing quotations that I obtained.

As an accountant, I deal with many lawyers – always difficult to get hold of them. Good thing about Ash is that when he promises to call me back, he always does. I can’t remember the times where I’ve had to speak to him out of hours and he has always been accommodating.

Always going above and beyond the call of duty. We like using them because of the added value they provide; advising us about aspects which we wouldn’t normally consider as part of a deal. On far too many occasions they have saved us from extra expense or headache in the future.

Approachable friendly service, we can rely on them to simply get on with things and keep our best interests at heart.

Top-notch service, have been using them for years. Straightforward simple, clear advice.

Thanks Tahir. You did a great job recovering my losses after my previous solicitor let me down when he didn’t apply to renew my business lease and I ended up paying far more rent than I should have been. I am very happy with the compensation you got for me and now I can concentrate on running my business.

Now that my problem is sorted, I just wanted to say a quick thank you. My partners had been causing so many problems in our business, I thought the only way to resolve matters was to go to court and I was afraid of that because it was going to be so expensive. I am grateful that you understood the problems and came up with an solution which meant everyone walked away reasonably happy. You saved me a lot of headache and money! Thanks.

Thank you, Tahir for helping us with our problem. I am sure we could not have persuaded our neighbour to restore the right-of-way to our property which he blocked without your help. We were very worried but you helped us through it carefully in a way that we were very happy with. I will be sure to contact you again if I need a solicitor.

Thank you so much, Tahir. I’m very pleased with the outcome of my claim after severing a tendon in my finger in my work accident. My company have now accepted that blades are not suitable equipment for the work we were doing and have provided everyone in the company with rotary cutting tools. Also, health and safety has become a lot more important within the company and they now carry out “tool box talks” every month. Thanks again.

I was recommended to Longfords by a friend. They have very professional and understanding staff at this firm. They were very easy to speak to and the information they gave me was clear and jargon free. A pleasure to deal with.

Linda went over and above all our expectations when she acted for us when we bought our house. We felt she became more of a friend than just our solicitor. Fantastic service, thanks.

All good, keep up the good work. You gave me a good friendly service and I will recommend you to my friends.

A big thank you to Linda Taylor from Longfords for dealing with my conveyancing. You were recommended by my mortgage broker and I was very satisfied with your service. You kept me in the loop at all times and took the time to explain anything I didn’t understand with great patience. Linda’s customer service was excellent.

Longfords was recommended to me by a friend and it was really easy to contact them. The service that was provided was above and beyond my expectations. Tahir went out of his way to get my mortgage completed. I would gladly recommend Longfords to anyone.

I just want to say thank you for helping me get compensation for me and my family from the criminal injuries compensation authority. I didn’t even know that we could make a claim until you told me that I could when you were helping me with the purchase of my house. You were very sympathetic and caring towards us in what was a very difficult time. You made sure that we got the maximum we were entitled to after advising us to reject the first offer and I could not be happier with the service you gave me.

I contacted Longfords after coming across their website when my son was injured in a road traffic accident. They contacted me straight away and explained how they could help my son get compensation in a very easy to understand way. The partner dealing with my case, Tahir, kept me up-to-date with my son’s case throughout and I was very happy with the compensation my son received. I would be certain to recommend Longfords to any of my friends and have already referred one of my friends to them.
