Divorce is never an easy process to go go through. But from start to finish I felt the journey was made as stress free by my solicitor at Maples as it could be. Any questions were promptly answered. Although it lasted for 18 months, every step was explained in a way that I could understand. I would fully recommend them. Oh and the overall cost was less than I had initially thought!
Over the last forty years I have cause to deal with many law firms both in a personal and professional capacity, including some ‘top’ London Companies. In all of those dealings I have never found anyone as proactive and so willing to offer help and advice as Jamie Dobbs. During the last two years Jamie guided my parents through the completion of Lasting Powers of Attorney. Helped myself with the use of the LPA and recently dealing with Probate and Estate Administration following their death. To deal with someone with Jamie’s patience, kindness and professionalism is so unusual and has made a very difficult time quite easy for myself and my family. Thank you.
“Faultless, friendly service provided at all times.”
My Mother, Sister and myself dealt with Jamie Dobbs, in connection with obtaining legal Power of Attorney on both counts in respect of my mother. Jamie was professional and kind explaining everything and was happy to make home visits which made the process much easier. Many Thanks.
I do not believe the efficiency and thoroughness of my dealings with Maples Solicitors (on two occassions) could be bettered.
So easy to talk to her and she understood what I wanted. She put me at ease and I cant thank her enough.
I received excellent service from Faye Blair, made the whole thing easy to understand and straight forward. I was guided easily through the whole process, resulting in my matter being easy to be concluded. Thank you – Job Well Done!
I felt the service I got from Maples was excellent and was very honest all through the process. I would recommend Maples as a first class Solicitors group.
Maples Solicitors gave me the help I needed, in the best possible way, and affording the best possible outcome. For which I am extremely grateful.
We were given the details of your practice as we are completely new to the area. We updated our Wills and gave our Children Lasting Power of Attorney for us both. Thought it would be a long drawn out/complicated process but we were pleasantly surprised that all went smoothly.
Using Maples for many years for both conveyancing and family matters. We have always been pleased with the service, customer care and level of detail. Patient, friendly and welcoming team. Not overly priced either. Would recommend to anyone needing legal services.
I went to Maples to draw up my Will which can be quite stressful thinking about what the future may or may not hold. I was put at ease immediately when I telephoned for an appointment. I met with Faye Blair who explained everything and was more than helpful with my many questions. My Will was drawn up very quickly and everything was done within weeks. I would not hesitate in recommending Maples.
Anita was extremely understanding, efficient and sensitive in what was a difficult time. I’d have no hesitation in recommending her to others.
May we take this opportunity to thank you so much for the drafting of both mine and my wife’s wills.
Thanks to your friendly and engaging manner, we found it an undaunting and may I say, pleasant experience.
Your friendly advice was easy to take in and your professional manner in dealing with the more ‘tricky’ clauses made it easy for the layman to grasp and we finally left your office feeling most gratified as to the whole outcome. Most importantly: The more sensitive areas of the wills we thought you handled with a compassionate and deft touch allowing us to discover the importance of ourselves looking to the future, as well as to our proposed beneficiaries.
I was looking for a solicitor to handle my divorce which was not a straight forward case as since our separation my ex husband and I could not agree on a settlement between ourselves. Maples was highly recommended to me by several people that had used them in the past, so I made contact and booked my first appointment. I received first class service from the outset and all the information was upfront, honest and easy to understand. I was kept up to date throughout the process and more than happy with the end result. I wouldnt hesitate to recommend Maples, especially Anita and Sue to everyone that needs good, honest advice a great service.
We found it a pleasure to deal with Anita Zaborniak, she was most helpful and informative and kept us up to date with the progress of the purchase of our new home. If we were to move again we wouldn’t hesitate to use Maples again.
I was recommended to Maples and sorted a small problem out almost straight away. Then one thing after another went wrong and then my world fell apart. Well I came out the other side of a nightmare and thanks to Maples, Anita, Grant and Sara and Susan. I’m going to start living again.
Faye was excellent, sensitive and acted very well to the time constraints we faced. Great service and dealt with compassion at such sad times made the process less painful very professional.
Ms Jamie Dobbs dealt with the Probate and Administration of Mr Panter Estate most efficiently. As executor I was very impressed with her courteous and sympathetic approach to matters. This Estate was complicated as assets were held abroad which took effort and patience to achieve collection.
Experience helps and Maples have loads of this. Efficient and professional but with a friendly touch and language that is understandable. Thank you Mr Pepper and team.
Moving house was not stressful at all we felt completely relaxed knowing we were contacted asap for information needed both ways. Very helpful and the whole process ran very smoothly indeed. Thank you Anita once again we shall be using your services in the future
We have engaged with Maples Solicitors LLP for over 40 years. They have advised and represented us through matters on a personal level, including property and Wills also on a professional level dealing with matters relating to our family business, including the sale of company and all that involved. Maples Solicitors, the partners and all colleagues that we have worked with have always been professional in their approach but shown a great deal of support at a personal level that has made us feel valued and respected. We have every confidence in recommending Maples Solicitors to anyone needing legal advice or support.
Very helpful, always ready to advise and listen to client. Explanation very clear, and client always asked if he/she has understood the legal terminology. Very happy to have entrusted my affairs to this firm of solicitors.
From initial contact until completion of the Will and Lasting Power of Attorney Maples Solicitors and in particular Jamie Dobbs handled the matter very professionally. In addition she was extremely patient and understanding of a difficult matter. The home visits made the completion much easier particularly when dealing with clients with restricted mobility.
Grant and his team were very helpful, informative and gave excellent service. I would recommend them to everyone
As a client of Maples Solicitors I can confirm the excellent way all work is carried out and the very courteous approach the staff have to clients.
Excellent service and always felt that Maples, and in particular Mike Pepper, were working for us and on our behalf – “fighting our corner” when needed. Despite ringing on several occasions for updates, was never made to feel we were being a nuisance and always dealt with politely and efficiently.
I am only too pleased to thank Miss Jamie Dobbs for the way she dealt with firstly my Mothers Estate and then My Will, always very professional and caring. I just knew I would get on well with her the very first second that I met her. Always had all the information at hand and took the time to explain things clearly in a cool, calm and collective manner. During a very stressful time it was nice to be dealing with such a lovely person.
Jamie Dobbs dealt with the matter of handling our mothers will in a most efficient manner keeping us informed of everything from start to finnish [sic]. Nothing seemed too much trouble even chasing the long lost siblings to ensure no stone was left unturned. An extremely excellent service thank you.
Very timely, valued and comprehensive service. Can be relied upon to provide good quality legal advice, whilst taking the time to make sure the customer needs and requirements are met and often exceeded.
Was given straight advice on the matter at hand. Gave us the advice needed to go ahead with our case. Mr G Shackleston was a pleasure to deal with who explained things to us in a language we could understand. Our case was settled out of court in the end but believe Mr G Shackleston advice played a big part. Many thanks to Mr G Shackleston for his help and advice.
This is the second time we have used Mike Pepper at Maples Solicitors in the sale of our house. We cannot praise Mike enough for the highly efficient and professional service that he has provided us with. He is by far the best solicitor we have ever worked with, and the service that he has provided us with has gone far and beyond anything we have ever experienced. We have found the whole process to be a very relaxing experience. And we can only thank Mike Pepper and his team for this due to their fantastic, prompt and efficient service along with continuous updates throughout the whole process.
“Maples were helpful and reliable and kept me informed at all times. I have used the services of Mike Pepper, Claire Smith and Faye Blair and can thoroughly recommend them. They have always provided a fantastic, professional service and I shall continue to use Maples whenever I need any legal services.”
Having past experiences with this company, I decided that they were the ones to deal with my current problem. The company were true professionals, dealt with everything swiftly and matter of factly. The cost was reasonable and the outcome was as good as I expected. I would definitely use these people again.
Maples Solicitors always give advice which to the best of their knowledge is correct according to the law as they interpret it, even if the advice is not quite what the client wants to hear. They leave no stone unturned to find a way legally to get round any problem that arises during negotiations to conclude a deal or a contract. I have complete faith in them as an adviser regarding decisions I have to make during a business transaction.
“The level of service provided by Maples exemplifies the value of using a local, long established firm of solicitors to obtain benefits of experience at sensible cost. The result being a thoroughly enjoyable experience.”
After mum going into sheltered housing Maples dealt with the conveyancing for her house sale which went so smoothly and with living a fair distance away made it a stress free transaction. I would recommend Maples as their professionalism and friendliness shone out. Thank you.
Daven gave me clear and concise guidance from first engaging through to the court date. Daven, at all times, gave me comfort that he had fully understood the situation and knew exactly how to approach the case. This was reflected by the best possible outcome occurring on the day.
From start to finish with our case we received excellent service. Jamie was very polite and efficient and made our tragic circumstances easier to cope with. We would highly recommend Jamie and Maples for future reference.
The matter was dealt with in a prompt, efficient and timely manner. I would have full confidence using their services again.
Prompt, courteously delivered service, All aspects of my case were clearly understood by both sides and best advice given, together with an accurate prognosis of the final outcome. Should I need further representation, I would certainly return to Maples and would without question, recommend them to others.
Maples were very efficient and prompt in dealing with several areas of business for our family in what was a very difficult time for us. Thank you for taking all the responsibility and handling everything in such a professional but caring manner.
My issues were sorted efficiently. This was the second occasion I had to use the services of Maples and I am very satisfied with the professional and efficient manner I was dealt with.
Brilliant service and very understanding of an incredibly frustrated and protracted process by ex-husband. Flawless in support and patience
I was very happy with the professional and prompt handling of my problem.
I recommended Miss Jamie Dobbs because she conducted the revision of my Will, also the Grant of Probate required and two LPA’S I took out. All correspondence was well collated and clear and charges transparent in a business like and professional manner. Jamie possessed a calm, efficient persona at all our meetings during 2015. Her pleasant, personality was a source of support for myself and my family at a very difficult time of bereavement and grieving. I wish to thank all staff at Maples for their courteous, efficient manner while I was in contact with the company.
Maples Solicitors, and in particular Jamie Dobbs, have given us a great service following the bereavement of a family member. We were seen quickly and with the utmost respect. Our queries were answered fully and Jamie took the time to ensure we understood everything. Thank you so much!
Jamie Dobbs was amazing and helpful from start to finish. If i am ever in need of a solicitor again I will be certainly contacting this company, especially Jamie. Thank you to the reception also.
I needed legal advice after my husband suddenly passed away. Jamie was extremely helpful throughout the process and explained everything to me. She was also extremely flexible with seeing me at short notice which is what you want when you have questions that need answering whilst going through the grieving process. I can’t praise them all highly enough. Thank you.
Claire Smith has been amazing in every way. I highly recommend her and I am so grateful for all her help. She’s professional on all levels, reliable, extremely organised and I will be recommending her to everyone. I’m very lucky to have had her representing me and I can’t thank her enough. She is an asset to Maples. Thanks so much Claire!
We used Maples when we moved house recently. They service we received from Mike Pepper and his staff was excellent. Mike was always very helpful and pleasant throughout the whole process and we would certainly use him again.
We had not done a will before so were not sure of the process. Jamie was very helpful & produced the documents quickly. Impressed with the service. Thank you.
“We received a fantastic service by all at Maples Solicitors. They have a friendly team and we look forward to using them again!”
“We were dealt within a friendly informative manner. Each step was discussed and the advice given was understandable. We have never had cause to complain in the many years we have dealt with Maples”
“I contacted Maples for some employment advice and I was contacted by Mr Shackleston on the same day for an appointment and he was very approachable and gave very clear and concise advice which was easy to understand and put me at ease. The matter was resolved very quickly and I achieved more than expected. Very good service and I would use Maples again for other services.”
“Good friendly service with a realistic approach to problems. Much appreciated during a difficult period.”
Treated with compassion to all situations
A worry-free experience with satisfaction at every level of contact.
We used Mike Pepper and his team from Maples for our recent purchase and sale. A highly efficient and uncomplicated service throughout and worked very hard to ensure that we were able to complete prior to our pre-booked holiday. An excellent local firm that we would highly recommend.
Mike Pepper went above and beyond in order to ensure the purchase of our first house went as smoothly as possible. We were kept informed at every stage and everything was clearly explained to us both.
Very professional service, highly recommended!
You have been our Solicitors for over 20 years. We would not go anywhere else. Maples provide a comprehensive, efficient service, with people who are knowledgeable, considerate and caring. We would highly recommend them.
I do not hesitate in recommending Maples Solicitors LLP at all. They are clear and concise and explain everything so that it can be understood by the layman. The staff are very obliging and pleasant and will help in any way they can.
“I was recommended by a friend and was very pleased with the friendly and helpful service and would now recommend the firm to others.”
Mike and Freda are a fantastic team. They make the whole process painless and are friendly, professional, courteous and diligent.
Maples have handled my business for over 20 years. I’ve always had a good service from Maples however in this instance Claire Smith has been exceptional. Thank you so much Claire.
I was always kept up to date with what was going on with my case. Grant was in constant communication with myself, even when there wasn’t much going on.
The outcome was better than we first originally thought.
I will recommend Maples/Grant to anyone. They gave me a good, friendly, honest service.
Maples were the second solicitor instructed to deal with my divorce. The first solicitors had the case for over a year and had made absolutely no progress. Maples Solicitors has been a pleasure to deal with, taking what is a very emotional and stressful time, striving to act in my best interests and in the end providing a very satisfactory end result.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Maples Solicitors to friend and family.
Maples offers a first class and non judgemental service. All staff are kind and polite, with a range of legal advice that is carefully calculated from the information you provide. I believe this is the peace of mind everyone in a dire situation really wants from such a professional organisation. Personally I can’t thank the team enough for their hard work and patience and have no hesitation in recommending their service to anyone.
We have used Maples on four occasions for buying and selling houses. Mike Pepper has dealt with everything speedily and we are very happy with the service. We were very impressed on the two occasions when we were selling property that on the day of completion the money was in our account later the same day after agents fees etc had been paid. Thank you for making the Conveyancing so quick and pain free.
As a small business we needed reliable legal support on an occasional basis. We have used Maples to draw up new contracts for our staff and to give us legal advice regarding a disciplinary matter. On-going we have chosen to pay for a yearly business legal support. The advantage for us is that we can email or call Maples at any time, regarding any matter that crops up and get the right advice. So far this has worked really well for us, especially as we know there are no hidden costs and it can be budgeted into the running costs across the year.
Professional and friendly service. Regular updates. Approachable staff. All questions answered patiently and thoroughly. Information, including charges, clearly explained. Attention to detail at each stage gave us confidence in the process and outcomes.
Outstanding Service, Informative and Case Handling exceeded expectations! Thank you!
“When selling my mother’s bungalow, everything was explained thoroughly. No question was left unanswered, communication was great, updates always on time and any happenings relayed on time the same day. Thank you for a prompt, efficient and friendly service. “
Plain English speaking, accessible staff who explained details in an understandable way.
Mike Pepper is always friendly, helpful and professional in all dealings. Mike also has a wealth of knowledge regarding the local property market.
Claire and the staff at Maples provided me with an excellent service and their professionalism was really good at all times. Information and advice was clear and easy to understand. I was kept informed and treated fairly at all times. If unavailable Claire would always get back to me quickly and sort matters out without delay. I would therefore highly recommend Claire in the Family Department and Maples Solicitors to anyone needing legal help and advice.
I was always worred about dealing with Solicitors; but not for the last 30 years! Mike Pepper and his PA Freda are very easy to talk to, very friendly, explain everything in easy forms and are a pleasure to contact. My entire family use the company and would not consider going anywhere else. First class in every aspect!
I was very appreciative about the divorce proceedings. The advice given and the service I received made the proceedings straightforward and hassle free.
During the time I instructed Claire at Maples she provided a wonderful efficient service. Her advice was clear and understandable. She was friendly and approachable, but remained professional at all times. Thanks you Claire.
Very fair and understanding service.
When divorcing my husband I found Claire Smith was not only professional and helpful but also a friend and a shoulder to cry on.
From start to finish, everyone I dealt with at Maples was very helpful and friendly. Every aspect of my divorce was handled in a caring and efficient manner. I would be more than happy to highly recommend Claire and all of the staff at Maples to family and friends.
Introduction from friends. Easy to make initial contact. Given easy to understand advice. Treated with respect, professional but friendly. Certain to use again if required.
Easy contact. Staff courteous. All queries dealt with promptly and patiently.
Gave time and patience when dealing with case. They listen to you and don’t judge, was able to be yourself.
Grant was very friendly and made me feel at ease. The level of service is excellent.
We have always found Maples helpful, friendly and professional in our dealings with them. We have an association with Maples spanning many decades. We know your telephone number by heart!
Excellent service. Having Anita as my solicitor was a huge support, she was professional as well as a tower of strength in difficult circumstances. I found everything concerning your service excellent.
I don’t think you can improve because your level of service is excellent in every way. Thank you for everything you have done for me.
I was treated with respect and sensitivity due to it being a divorce. I was kept informed of all matters and everyone was friendly. Easy to approach. Keep up the great work and a big thank you to all who helped me and made this difficult time for me all that more easy.
I first dealt with Maples & Son during the 1950’s and have been a satisfied client on occasions since then.
Better value compared to others especially [another firm named]
I would like to put on record how impressed we have been with Grant Shackleston’s knowledge of the relevant issues and law pertaining to this issue. We are extremely grateful for Grant’s support.
Mike provided a very efficient service and explained everything to us every step of the way and was always very helpful. I have used Mike Pepper every time I bought or sold a house for a number of years and have always found him to be very efficient and thorough. If Mike was ever unavailable I would contact his secretary Freda who is again very efficient and helpful.
Excellent service in all ways. We really cannot fault the service we had during this difficult time. Thank you.
Maples were recommended to us and have lived up to the recommendation.
Mr Naghen was very helpful, very reassuring at a time when I was very distressed and bewildered.
Requests dealt with very quickly and professionally. May we just thank Jane for her speedy response to our business.
A lot of care and understanding at a bad time in my life.
Very good advice. Very friendly. Fantastic service! Keep it up.
