The way Donna Aslett translated our sometimes confused requests was brilliant. When my wife and I talk at the same time it can be confusing but Donna coped exceptionally well and the finished product was exactly what we wanted. The making of our wills turned out to be a really enjoyable experience (except for paying) and we can not express our satisfaction enough. She even coped with my sense of humour.

I just wanted to take a minute to say a huge personal thank you from myself for your help, support and expertise in finding a resolution to my friend's disciplinary process.

I have high principles and when I see a friend being treated unfairly I feel I have to support them, I did sometimes however wonder if I was doing things correctly and your advice and support made the process a whole lot easier.

My friend has lost his job as a result of some nasty false allegations against him but he has now won through and this is purely down to your professional help so thank you.
Also your friendly and kind attitude towards my friend has been a huge help to him and I know he appreciates it, as do I. It is very rare nowadays to deal with someone as kind and caring as well as professional as yourself.

Thank you so much

Over the course of the last year, Benna has helped my family and I through very difficult circumstances, of which are still ongoing.

Benna has always shown compassion and empathy and has listened and tried to understand attentively. She has done what she can with advice and actions to assist us. What is beyond her scope or departmental specialty, she has referred us and sought advice.

Benna has been diligent and when we have met in person, she has been patient and understanding. Benna is a credit to herself and the company and should be commended for her practice, work ethic, attitude and client relations.

We were delighted with the service we received from both Adam Ottley and Piet van Gelder who represented us during our house build dispute.

Adam and Piet were extremely professional and gave excellent advice throughout a very stressful period for us.

We would not hesitate in recommending Wilkin Chapman’s Construction and Engineering department for construction disputes.

Read more

I must commend the service that I have received through your company and in particular the support from my solicitor, Cathy Bennet-Ryan, during what has been a very difficult time.

She has always provided sound advice and reassurance whilst ensuring that I have been fully aware of the risks in the process of litigation that I have been involved in. Throughout the process she has been available to support the preparation of documentation and guidance on the use of counsel in the court proceedings. Of particular merit was her calm and positive approach from day one when I met her through one of your free initial consultation meetings, particularly when a number of other solicitors from other companies seemed loath to support a father in child arrangements proceedings.

I have been impressed during all my dealings with Cathy’s quiet and confident approach and guidance, and whilst we were successful in this stage of the process she ensured I was fully aware and prepared for the risk of the hearing going against me.

The service I received at your office in Beverley was excellent especially my solicitor Lesley Archer who swiftly ironed out any problems I may have had in drafting and revising my will and also arranging my power of attorney. I would also pay tribute to your staff in the reception area. Thank you.

The drafting and making of my new will was done in a very friendly and efficient manner, from arriving at reception to having the document completed. This came as no surprise as I have dealt with your firm for many years.

Thank you for helping me through a difficult time, it is never easy to function when suffering mental health problems. Fortunately this lapse of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder is now passing away and I can get on with recovering my personal and professional life. I wish Dan every success in his career, he already has excellent people skills.

All the staff were very friendly and understanding. Charlotte on reception was particularly helpful and an excellent 'front of house'! Mark Carlton displayed an understanding but pragmatic approach which put my mind at ease and filled me full of confidence. The human face/aspect of your firm is second to none!

I would like to commend the work of Mark Carlton and James Marsden. What should have been a simple matter was made complicated and unnecessarily long by a difficult District Judge. Mark and James kept me updated throughout however and were as frustrated with the judges' comments as I was. However thanks to their professionalism it was fairly pain free process and I would recommend their services to any potential client.

I was very impressed by the service received. Wills individually discussed and signed in 3 days though was offered next day! I have not used a solicitor for many years (last will 1989, house purchase 1996 and father in law probate 2004) all were satisfactory at the time but we wanted to choose someone new based (1.) on qualification/expertise, (2.) easy to reach location.

Lucy Butterfint was easy to talk to and she answered all my questions.

I did not expect to change anything we had requested, however the night before signing the will, decided to add a legacy, if possible, and although it was all prepared I was pleasantly surprised it could be altered straight away so no delay signing on day.

Sheila Biskup was supportive, caring and professional and kept me sane throughout the selling process of my property. She was a steady rock in a river full of turbulence over the past few months and I'll be forever grateful for the calm, steady and competent way in which she dealt with me and my sale.

Sheila has dealt with all my legal affairs since Summer 2010 and I will be returning to request her help again in the future.

"Thank you Sheila for all your work. Will be recommending you in the future."

I can't comment highly enough on the service received from Rupert and all of the team at the Alford office. This was a long drawn out sale and purchase with many complications that at times left us all tearing our hair out with frustration and I don't think I would have got my house without Rupert and the teams determination and hard work. A big thank you to them all.
