Forever Grateful

Also many thanks to Jane Hinds for the sensitive and compassionate way in which she sorted my will.’

You Gave Me Hope

‘Dear Helen, I would like to place on record how much I appreciate your help, advice and empathy in circumstances that were distressing for us beyond belief. You gave me hope in what for me, at times, seemed to be a nightmare which I would never wake up from. Thank you so much.’

Sound Advice

‘Extremely knowledgeable, professional and supportive. Emma Mitchell provided very sound advice throughout a challenging divorce’

‘I cannot fault my experience with EJA. Throughout this difficult time I was made to feel secure, supported and validated – money cant actually buy these things’

Above and Beyond

‘Sharon Percival was always very professional, helpful & caring. She went above and beyond the call of duty – thank you’

Hard work for Conveyancing

Very Friendly & Very Helpful

“Emery Johnson Astills are very experienced, they are very friendly and very helpful. I would recommend them to anyone. We would like to personally thank Jo Donald and Sharon Percival for the service they provided.”

Friendly and Personal Service

“Emma Mitchell was very supportive. I feel that I received a friendly and personal service which made the whole divorce process less stressful.”

Outstanding Service

“The service received from Sharon Percival was outstanding both in and out of court. Any questions I had I could always just pick up the phone and get an honest opinion with positive reassurances and sometimes a different outlook. Not once did I ever feel pressured to make decisions quickly.”

A Sense of Calm

“Thank you Emma, you are totally professional, but so lovely with it; it’s an excellent combination and it inspires confidence and a sense of calm!”

Excellent Service

“Dear Emma

Thank you for your help and support. I am really relieved that everything has gone through so smoothly and relatively quickly. I am really happy with the excellent service you and your team have provided.”

Caring approach

“Dear Trisha
May I just say that I cannot thank both yourself and Emma Mitchell enough for the very professional and yet caring and compassionate way in which you dealt with my divorce in what were at times very difficult circumstances.”

Support all the way

Although our partnership was under unpleasant circumstances, working with you made it a pleasure! I can’t thank you enough for making these months a positive experience as I always was assured of your support in the background. I will not hesitate to recommend you highly to anyone who needs your services”  

Turning things round

When things didn’t look good from the previous case, you took an unbiased view and that support helped win the case

A sympathetic ear

I felt very comfortable talking to you about my divorce and was very satisfied with the way things were dealt with

Kindness assured

“Thank you for your kindness.  Sometimes it is not easy when you are trying to express how you gave us happiness. A very big Thank You!”

In safe hands

“Emma is not only a safe pair of hands, but also brings a calm, clear and intelligent approach to what can sometimes be a difficult and emotional process. Her expertise in the area of Collaborative Law is enormously valuable and can keep the unnecessary drama (and expense) out of crisis.”

Sympathetic yet professional

” I would like to let you know how pleased I have been with how Emma has dealt with my divorce and financial settlement that finally all came together last week.

From the start Emma has been friendly and sympathetic yet professional too.  She has always responded to my calls or emails promptly or if away from the office, her assistant Hayley Kitchen has been just as helpful.

Paperwork has always been emailed to me in the first instance and then posted out, which has kept me up to date as things have progressed.

I would certainly recommend Emma to any of my friends that may have to go through similar circumstances”

Criminal Law Clients

From a single road traffic offence to large scale drug dealing, we offer a friendly, professional service.  Read what our criminal law clients have to say. 

Success at short notice

I cannot praise emeryjohnson too highly.  In particular Ms Johnson’s capacity to master a brief at short notice; to reassure the client; to represent the client to the court; in short her humane professionalism – all are admirable in my view

Excellent service, regardless of outcome

I’m more than happy with the service we received.  If the court’s decision had gone the other way, I’d still say the service your team gave me was excellent.  Thank you

Clear, practical advice

 “I am perfectly satisfied with the way the case was handled. My solicitor was very efficient, easy to communicate with and was very clear on what the outcome would or could be and who worked well”

Increasing trust

Having had experience of your organisation, my confidence in you grew, I would have no hesitation in asking you for any necessary representation in the future.  Relatives and friends have already been told of my satisfaction, Thank you and well done!

Driving a Professional Approach

Just a note to say that we have received your letter outlining details and results of the case.  We both thank you very much for all your help and your many reassurances, without which life would have been even more unpleasant,  your professional approach to the various problems that arose gave us the strength that we needed.  I particularly noticed your dealings with the prosecution which had the desired effect in reducing the ban to the lower range.   As far as is possible and thanks to your help and expertise, we can now put this unfortunate matter towards the back of our minds.

Highly Recommended

“Emery Johnson offer a reliable, friendly and professional service. I would recommend them and use them again. Thank you, thank you, thank you, especially Jo Donald!”

Great Outcome

“Let me say here that i have been extremely happy with your firm’s conduct in this case from the reception staff through to yourself. In all the circumstances of this case i am pleased with the outcome after an extremely worrying and depressing time. I would certainly recommend your firm. Thank you Michelle.”
