What Our Clients Are Saying About Us

I have been very pleased with the service I received from everyone involved during these difficult times. It has been a joy to deal with solicitors that actually do what you expect and look after your interests promptly and expertly. My experience with previous solicitors was entirely the opposite.

Dear Jade

We just want to say a huge thank you for all your hard work and efforts in making our move finally happen. It did feel like it was against all the odds and we feel it would not have happened had it not been in your capable hands. You were always so pleasant and positive to deal with.

Dear Mike

Thank you again for your smooth, friendly and efficient service ... until next time!

October 2017

Dear Vanessa

Just to say I so enjoyed our meetings. You put me at ease immediately and I can’t thank you enough for all the work you did on my behalf. I had total faith in everything you did in my best interest. Thank you so much.

September 2017

Dear Peter

The final outcome with HMRC and inheritance tax was more than we could have hoped for and was a result of your perseverance and sound advice. For that and for all your help we are truly grateful.

September 2017

Dear Teresa

I feel compelled to write to you to say how impressed I have been with the client service I received from Jade Saward throughout my recent flat purchase. It is quite a while since I purchased a property and Jade guided me through the whole process which was at times challenging to say the least. In particular I was impressed with how she handled the enquiries insisting on the Seller obtaining retrospective consents for building works to protect me when I come to sell the property in the future. She was approachable, easily contactable, diligent and extremely efficient. I really felt “safe behind” and can’t stress enough how grateful I am for everything she has done throughout this transaction.

September 2017

Dear Meggie

You have done a terrific job and I am hard pressed to think how I can thank you properly.

Thanks for all your help. I couldn’t possibly have wished for anyone nicer or more competent to steer this one through. You have been a diamond.

August 2017

Dear Allison

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for managing my Mother's Estate and bringing it all to a successful conclusion.

August 2017

Dear Sue

Just a thank you for all of your help with our sale and purchase – I have recommended you to so many people!

You have made the last few months run very smoothly!

July 2017

Dear Emma

Many thanks for your email. We picked up the keys earlier today. We have been to the house and understandably are all very excited!

We would like to take this opportunity of thanking you for all your work and would like to advise we are very pleased with the way the whole process was managed. Appointing Keene Marsland was a good decision.

July 2017

Dear Meggie

Thank you for all your hard work and patience making the transition a whole lot easier, you did an amazing job. I will definitely come back to you if I ever do decide to buy another place in London.

August 2017

Dear Allison and Anita

A very big thank you for handling and concluding my mother’s estate. You have been brilliant throughout! My mother would have been very surprised and pleased to see such a big tax refund!!

Dear Louisa

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your office very sincerely for the excellent service and attention that has been afforded to us at all times throughout the process. We will be sure to use Max Barford again in the future.

With very best wishes.

Dear Meggie

I didn’t get the chance to thank you for all the work you did on our behalf; your skill, patience and near super-human ability to remain calm and focused when dealing with people who clearly have no common courtesy or moral compass was astonishing. There were times when I thought the whole business would drive me mad but you always managed to stabilize things and ultimately got the job done.

So thank you for everything.

Dear Vanessa

Sorry to miss our call, thank you so much for all your thorough attention to get this through. Most appreciated.

Dear Mr Penfold

I am now in residence, and greatly enjoy living here. Thank you for dealing with the sale and purchase so efficiently.

Dear Vanessa

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for providing a most professional legal service in dealing with the transfer of our mortgage. You deserved every penny we paid you!!

Dear Sarah

Just once again I really appreciate your work. This has been going on for nearly a year and your enthusiasm and detail in your emails and letters have never once been effected. I consider myself lucky finding you to help me with this!!

Dear Stephen

I just wanted to pop a quick email to you to say thank you to you and Amanda. You both made a horrible process much easier and less stressful for me.

Dear Meggie

Thank you for all your assistance and patience throughout this matter it has been much appreciated.

Dear Meggie

Thank you for our co-operation, rest assured we will be recommending you to any client wishing to seek property conveyancing.

Dear Meggie

Thank you for your calm expertise in getting us through this.

Dear Allison

I just wanted to let you know that after some months we have completed the sale on my Mother’s house. Thank you very much for all your work on our ‘Variation of Will’ request and for your patience with our questions and queries.

Dear Stephen

As you can well imagine and it is certainly an understatement, I am breathing a sigh of relief. The Oxford Dictionary doesn’t contain sufficient words to express my grateful thanks to you in bringing this to a conclusion. You have worked tirelessly to see that this stressful, frustrating case, is closed.

From day one of taking on this case, both you and Amanda have made me feel at ease. Allowing me to express myself, in the only way I can sometimes when confronted with stressful situations, by being humorous!!!

Once again thank you and Amanda so much. Should I, or anyone I know, need the assistance of a solicitor, in whatever field, I will have no hesitation in recommending you and Keene Marsland.

Dear Mr Ritchie

I am writing to especially thank you for your recommendation to send the Form 185 resulting from my father’s estate, to the Tax Office, in August 2015. After a P800 assessment I was indeed due a tax refund.

I can’t thank you enough for the professional way you dealt with my father’s affairs.

Dear Mrs Weaver

Many thanks for your email confirming transfer of funds. I must also thank you for the excellent professional services that I have received from you in connection with my Aunt’s Estate.

Well done and thanks.

Dear Sheila

Thank you so much. You and Vanessa are truly wonderful people and helped me so much. Thank you again.

Dear Vanessa

I just wanted to thank you for your support and guidance over the past 18 months. Thankfully I was fortunate to find a good solicitor who has helped me through a very difficult process. Thank you Vanessa. I wish you well for the future.

Dear Louisa

Everything looks perfect and in order, as usual. We are extremely grateful for all the help and assistance you have given us over the last few months. We don’t know what we wouldn’t done without you. Many thanks again.

Dear Zanariah

Thank you for your hard work and professionalism, there is certainly a stark contrast between yourself and the other solicitor on the other side.

Excellent help and advice. Jade was very professional and nothing was too much trouble.

Dear Claire

Thank you very much for your help and support during the sale of my property, it really was invaluable. Please thank your secretary Julie also. Here's to a new era and hope our paths may cross again at some point!

Dear Rebecca

May I also take this opportunity to thank you for all your work on this project.

Mum has found the concept of leaving her home very difficult, and your friendly and helpful attitude went a long way towards helping her.


May I say again how much we appreciated all your efforts on our behalf over the last few months - an excellent example of professional service.

We won't hesitate to recommend Colemans to anyone in the future.

With all best wishes

Dear Mr Ritchie

I can’t tell you sufficiently how grateful I am of your reliability and conscientiousness through this time. I have especially appreciated your detail and careful guidelines.

Dear Alison

I would like to thank you for all your help, advice and kind empathy during these last few months when I was at my most fragile. I appreciate that so much.

Dear Andrew

Your advice, expertise and professionalism were invaluable to me. I am extremely grateful to you and all of the other people involved. Thank you so very much.

Dear Anita

Please accept my sincere thanks for all of your assistance and expertise regarding tax issues. As you can imagine, it is a huge relief that these matters have finally come to a rather positive conclusion. Your persistence, expertise and patience were certainly invaluable during this process. Once again, thank you for all of your help and guidance.

Dear Amanda and Vanessa,

I want to thank you both very much for all of your support for the last 20 months or so. You have been highly professional and helpful every step of the way. I will no doubt recommend your services should anyone I know find themselves in a similar situation.

Dear Aneta

At all times I received extremely helpful advice and a polite service. Nothing was too much trouble.

Dear Claire,

Thank you so much for taking the time today to explain my options.

You made the experience relaxing and reassuring and in layman's terms that I can understand.

Thank you also for the leads, I will follow up on that. You will certainly be my go to solicitor for any family matters.

I was nervous and quite stressed when I came in for advice and was instantly put at ease by Vanessa’s calm and efficient manner. She was absolutely brilliant.

A warm thank you to you, Sarah and everyone at Max Barford who have been involved in my case.

All the best for the future and thanks again.

We have recently moved home and had the pleasure of dealing with Mrs Verity Donaldson for our sale and purchase conveyancing.

We just wanted to let you know that Verity was a pleasure to work with from the beginning to end and was truly professional.

So often people complain. However we wish to highly commend her and her hard work and help.

We shall certainly recommend her to family and friends in the future.

Having received the Decree Absolute in the post at the weekend, I would like to take the opportunity to thank you for your work regarding my divorce proceedings, and to wish you all the best for the future.

H K, Bracknell

Thank you so much again for your assistance and I'm glad we go the result we wanted with regards to everything.

S H, Reading

Just a little something to say thank you for all you did for me! You were friendly, professional, efficient and accessible throughout. You made an awful situation easier to cope with- simply the best!


I just wanted to drop you a line to express my gratitude for how things went yesterday.

I had my first real night's sleep for a month last night and although I know we still have a way to go I do feel that the ball is back on our side of the Court and hopefully this helps us dictate things going forward.

So, a big thank you to you and the Max Barford team.

S H, Tunbridge Wells

Thank you for all of your help with everything. I had lost all confidence in the process and sadly, in Solicitors generally. However, you personally have turned that around for me and following your recommendations everything has worked out for the best.

Keene Marsland have been excellent. I panicked a bit when Sue left but Andrew Southwell and Nicola Sands has been equally excellent. I will definitely be making recommendations of them in the future.

Chancellors Estate Agents were also excellent and also restored by faith in Estate Agents despite them making me feel very, very old.

That should leave me with some optimism to start 2015.

P P, Slough

Thank you very much once again for the excellent support you have provided in my divorce proceedings!

N Z, Hampton

Thanks for all your help Elizabeth

P W, London

Thanks and thanks again!


Thank you for your help in this matter it has been really appreciated by me and my daughter. We are truly grateful and will certainly recommend you to others.

L S, Windsor

Thank you so much for being there for us. Hopefully, it's all over now, but it's been a pleasure working with you.


My sincere thanks for all the work you have accomplished for my much missed parents and two sisters. I followed the procedures thanks to A super co-ordination with you. My husband I have been most impressed by the quality of you work and human kindness. Both so important in such times of sadness and the transmission of not just material wealth but the gifts of life and caring so central to my parents.


I just wanted to express my thanks to you and Norman for a brilliant job done in Court yesterday. I rang my family in Singapore and told them what a marvellous and caring person you are and you have gone beyond the capacity of a professional Solicitor.

I just want to say thanks and no way at all feel I am not grateful when you have worked so hard fighting my corner.


Thank you for being so understanding and helpful with my questions. I am grateful for your kindness.

JB, Kent

Very many thanks for you efficient work in drawing up my Will.

It has been a pleasure to meet you and if I have any questions or to make any amendments to my Will, I will be in touch again.

M N, Bromley

I am really thrilled with the fact that S and I were able to settle so easily yesterday. It was quite exhausting and it's all a bit surreal at the moment, but thank you so much for all your help and support over the last few months. You have been truly superb and extremely supportive.

I will be in touch again. Once again many thanks

At the end of August, Sevenoaks Town Golf Club presented a cheque for £8,428.00 to Hospice in the Weald. Most of this princely sum was raised at our Charity Golf Day in July and I would like to Express my sincere thanks for your generous support and contribution to such a worthy cause.

Just a short note to thank you and Teresa for your kindness and hospitality yesterday.

Thanks again for a great day.

I cannot begin to thank you enough for all of your hard work and dedication.

You're ever professional yet friendly, supportive and honest approach to dealing with what was the most difficult and stressful time for my family was exactly what I needed and far exceeded any expectations I had when I started down this road.

I would like to wish you all the best for the future and every success in your career and otherwise that you so obviously deserve and strive for.

J W, Windsor

Many thanks for your hard work in helping me achieve the outcome in my recent case.

S H, Tunbridge Wells

Many thanks for your prompt and thorough reply- I am totally unused to such a fast service from Solicitors.

With a service like you deserve to succeed and I wish you every future success.


Louisa dealt with the sale of my house.

I just wanted to let you know that I was delighted with the service that I received from Louisa.

She was very knowledgeable and extremely helpful.

A real star!
