We have been using Clough & Willis for ten years and found them to be very efficient in all aspects of their work. What I like about their firm is that they cover a wide variety of legal services and are very quick to respond to our needs.

The contact for my name change and divorce was Marie Whittaker who again was completely professional and gave me complete confidence from out first meeting. My divorce proceeded smoothly, quickly and efficiently. I was updated regularly by letters and phone calls.

From first contact to the last, everyone has been very professional and reassuring through what has been an emotional and stressful time for us and without the help of your company it would have been much more difficult for me and my husband.

I was very impressed with your firm at the outset when I first called in November 2009 after my uncles death. All staff from the receptionist and secretary through to the Partners were professional, friendly and helpful and provided the best response out of the 3 Bury firms I called.

Lorraine, I would just like to say "thank you very much" for all your hard work and assistance in the letting of the above property. The negotiations were somewhat protracted, due to a breakdown on my client's side, and I feel that your persistence and hard work led to the eventual lease completion. I look forward to working with you in the near future. Kind regards, Neil Higson, for and on behalf of Nolan Redshaw Ltd
