About Family Law

At Tollers, we believe Family Law requires a very different approach to many other areas where we practice.

In our extensive experience, taking a less aggressive approach to handling family legal matters often achieves a far more positive outcome. Wherever possible, we want to minimise conflict and instead focus on mediation and communication between the parties.

Naturally, some cases need urgent and immediate action and where appropriate we shall not hesitate to go to court to defend and protect our clients’ interests.

Our team is sensitive to the emotional upheaval divorce, separation and financial disputes can cause.  We  always have your best interests at heart and advise you accordingly keeping you fully informed, up to date with developments and with any costs implications.  So with Tollers you will always know where you stand legally and financially.

For an initial appointment for up to an hour and a half, for a fixed sum of £120 (offer available for Family Law advice only), please contact Tollers LLP. We guarantee that you will leave this initial appointment better informed about your legal rights and responsibilities and with a sense of direction as to how to move matters on and the options to move matters to a resolution

Divorce

Divorce is the legal process of ending a marriage and is only open to couples who have been married for more than a year. As the law stands, you must prove that your marriage has irretrievably broken down due to one of the following:

  • Your spouse has committed adultery and you find it intolerable to live with them.
  • Your spouse has behaved in a way that you can’t reasonably be expected to live with them.
  • Your spouse has deserted you for more than two years.
  • You have already lived apart for more than two years and your spouse consents to the divorce.
  • You have lived apart continuously for more than five years.

Divorce - Tollers SolicitorsYou can resolve any other financial matters before or after Decree Absolute, but you’re only free to remarry after Decree Absolute

Cohabitation

The legal position of people living with their partner often seems unclear. Many believe they have the same legal rights as a married person. This is not true. 

Increasingly, couples are choosing to make a formal legal agreement about the terms of their relationship. While this may seem cynical to some, a co-habitation contract makes good sense in many cases – especially when it comes to the home that you share. At Tollers, we can outline the main areas where issues may arise and suggest ways to avoid potential pitfalls. 

This type of contract is useful because both partners have to think seriously about what each wants from the relationship and work out compromises. A contract can help couples avoid misunderstandings, as each knows where they stand.

Cohabitation - Tollers Solicitors

It’s also a useful way to decide what happens if the relationship ends, which can save a lot of anguish and bitterness down the line. 

Financial Settlement

If you and your partner or spouse agree maintenance and how to divide property and other assets, then it is not usually necessary for you to attend court. At Tollers, we will always try to help you resolve any financial issues by agreement first, advising on what would be considered a fair and reasonable settlement.

Financial Settlement - Tollers Solicitors

If you can reach an agreement, we can help turn it into a legally binding arrangement. If you cannot, it may be necessary to involve the court.

Family Mediation

Mediation is a voluntary process that aims to help a couple find a mutually agreeable solution about their separation, finances, and children.  Mediation gives you and your partner or spouse control of the outcome and avoids handing the decision to a court, which may impose a solution that neither of you consider appropriate. 

Mediation is particularly useful for couples with children or complicated financial affairs. It’s also an effective way to limit the bitterness, distress and cost, often experienced in drawn-out contested divorce and financial proceedings.   

It is now compulsory (except in limited circumstances) for anyone applying to the family court in relation to money or children, to attend a Mediation Information and Assessment Meeting (MIAM), to consider whether your matter is suitable for mediation or some other ‘out of court’ resolution.

If you think mediation is appropriate, you and your partner or spouse will need to attend an informal meeting explaining the mediation process.

The mediator is entirely independent and works towards achieving a resolution acceptable to both parties.

Deed of Separation

Even though your marriage may have irretrievably broken down, you may decide not to start divorce proceedings straight away but still wish to formalise your separation.

This means drawing up a Separation Deed or Agreement. This is a contract voluntarily agreed to by both partners, which deals with all aspects of the separation.

Another option is, a Judicial Separation which is very similar to divorce, except you’re not free to remarry. It gives the court the power to make orders about children, property and other financial matters. 

Deed of Seperation - Tollers Solicitors

While Judicial Separations are uncommon, they can be used if one partner objects to divorce on religious grounds, or if a couple have been married for under a year.

Civil Partnership and Same Sex Marriages

Same-sex couples who register their partnership under the Civil Partnerships Act 2004 have many of the same rights, privileges and legal redress, as married couples enjoy.

If the relationship breaks down, registered partnerships also have the same financial remedies currently available to couples who divorce. This gives the courts the power, for example, to make maintenance, property, lump sum, and pension sharing orders.

There are also other provisions dealing with child maintenance assessments, immigration and nationality, employment and pension benefits on death, and fatal accident compensation. On entering a civil relationship a pre-existing will becomes void so you’ll need to make a new one.

Civil Partnership - Tollers Solicitors

The experience we’ve gained over the years means we have the sensitivity, empathy, skills and knowledge to advise on the breakdown of a same sex relationship.

Child Support and Maintenance

The Child Maintenance is the financial support, that one parent pays to the other for their children when they are separated.  If you can agree the amount of support that is to be paid between yourselves, that is encouraged and is called 'a family based arrangement'.  You may then be able to have your agreement incorporated into a court order.

Child Support and Maintenance Claims

If you cannot agree on the amount of support to be paid, the Child Maintenance Service now deals with all new cases.  The calculation takes into account the non-residential parent’s gross income, any pension contributions they make, the number of nights their children stay overnight with them and whether there are any other children living in the non-residential parent's home eg step children.  

Child Arrangements

If there is a dispute about where children should live, then either party can apply for a Child Arrangement Order (previously called Residence or Contact Orders) to confirm who the primary carer is and how much time children will spend with each parent.

Child Arrangements Claims- Tollers Solicitors

To change a child’s surname, you will need to get permission from all those who have parental responsibility for the child. If they agree, there is no issue. However, if they object, then you’ll have to apply to the court

Pre-nup

If you are planning to marry or enter into a civil partnership, you may want to consider a pre-nuptial agreement. An increasingly popular arrangement for many couples, a pre-nuptial agreement sets out what you and your future spouse or civil partner agree should happen to your finances if your relationship breaks down and you separate.

Even though pre-nuptial agreements are now much more common, they are not legally binding. However, the courts will take them into consideration if there have been no significant events, such as the birth of a child or a serious illness.

Pre-Nup - Tollers Solicitors

Our Family Law Team has drafted numerous pre-nuptial agreements and will be able to advise you on the pros and cons of entering into a ‘pre-nup’ and what the implications might be. That way, you can decide if it’s right for you.

What Our Clients Are Saying...

    B. Gee

    Mr M Jordan

    Mrs R Fairley
  • An excellent service was provided with timely and professional efficiency. 

    Mr A Young
  • Sian has been the most amazing conveyancing solicitor.  Seeing as she was first instructed in March and we only completed the purchase today this has required a lot of patience on her part. We went through adding family members to the purchase, family illness, risk of redundancy, the seller’s chain falling through, major leaks at the property, a price reduction, a pushy estate agent, urgent exchange when the seller threatened to withdraw and finally an odd situation on the final day with the managing company documents. Throughout it all Sian was supportive and reassuring, and protected our legal interests with her matter of fact, calm approach.  Every seller and purchaser needs a solicitor like Sian.

    Mrs C Ellis
  • Thank you for your assistance, responsiveness and support in facilitating my son's first house purchase.  All in all, a very good experience.

    M McEvitt
  • Sharon brown helped me with understanding and experience when I needed to re-write my will. I so appreciated her patience and pro-active suggestions of choices which enabled me to reach the best conclusions.

    Mrs T C
  • Francesca and her colleague Louise were excellent.  They dealt with our purchase in a swift manner and always answered our calls straight away.  Francesca was very professional and we are so pleased she dealt with our conveyancing. She is a fantastic Solicitor.

    Bamrah
  • You all helped make our house move run so smoothly!  Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making the sale so seamless.  We appreciate everything you have all done for us.

    Davidson
  • If it was not for Tollers and Tiffany Wiggett's professionalism, plain determination, skills and knowledge, myself and my children would be homeless and denied their inheritance and settlement. I am so grateful, elated and completely satisfied to have seen this through with them. Tiffany kept me going through difficult and uncertain times. I highly recommend Tollers, especially Tiffany Wiggett. I never thought I could contest a Will. Tollers have given me my life back.

    C. Hutchings
  • We would not hesitate to use Tollers again in the future. They have been really helpful and efficient, going out of their way to come to the hospital when my husband was taken ill. 

    Mr and Mrs Richardson
  • STG Holdings has worked with Liz Appleyard for several years.  Over that time Liz has assisted with a variety of legal matters including franchise support, drafting agreements and contracts and through Tollers’ commercial services team, dispute resolution and employment support.  Liz always provides prompt and expert advice, at price that is affordable

    M Cave - STG Holdings
  • Absolutely wonderful service and so helpful.  Would always use Tollers.

    Mr R P Banks
  • Rebecca was really responsive and made the whole experience very calm during a worrying time.

    Mr S Reardon
  • We have worked with Rebecca and her team for many years and have always found that the level of advice and support we receive is excellent no matter how big or small the query may be. Being kept abreast of important changes to employment law and just knowing that we can pick up the phone and receive professional advice that can always be relied upon is very reassuring. For an SME like ourselves a quick but thorough response is required and this is exactly the service that we receive from Rebecca and Tollers. In summary the biggest compliment that we can pay Tollers is that we advise our own customers and suppliers that Tollers HR package represents some of the best value for money that we spend each year.

    Paul Clapp (Factory Manager) CCI International
  • Tollers have been working with TCP for the past 7 years.  They offer a practical and commercial business support and help with ensuring that TCP are up to date and fully compliant with all of our employment responsibilities.  Tollers are very calm, considered and commercial and I would recommend their services to similar enterprises.

    Kevin Nolan (General Manager Operations) Technical Consumer Products Ltd
  • Rebecca always brings a human element and perspective to her legal advice helping us solve personnel challenges in a pragmatic and sensible way. 

    Nick Dormon (Managing Director) Echo
  • In my role as General Manager of Northamptonshire Credit Union, I have worked with Rebecca for the last two years. She has supported us on a range of HR issues and always provides straightforward, easy to understand advice, with ongoing support as and when we need it. Rebecca has also helped us with a full review of our HR policies, helping us to ensure our business is complying with the necessary legal requirements. Having access to a fully qualified, HR expert is extremely valuable to a business of our size and I wholeheartedly recommend Rebecca and the team at Tollers.

    James (General Manager) Northamptonshire Credit Union
  • As a small business, which doesn’t have the luxury of an HR/legal department, we are so grateful to have the support of Tollers when we require it. They’re practical, supportive and quick to respond, which is critical in a fast moving business environment. We see them as an important part of our team and would recommend them highly!

    Rachel Vincent
  • We have worked with Rebecca and her team since June 2015.  She has been invaluable in assisting us to put in place a wide variety of procedures concerning our employees, everything from discussing the best HR process to put in place and how best to follow this process, reviewing letters, dealing with employee disputes right through to advising on dismissal.  Rebecca has an excellent understanding of our industry and her help and support have assisted us in various commercial decisions we have had to make. 

    McManus
  • Rebecca has provided us with an excellent, professional and responsive service which is high quality and demonstrates a good understanding of our organisational need and culture.

    Sam Anthony (Head of HR and OD) Fenland District Council
  • Since starting as Finance Director at Chiltern Cold Storage two years ago, we have used the Tollers HR package for both the provision of HR advice, as well as underwriting any Industrial Tribunal costs should this ever be necessary.

    Whilst we have not needed the Industrial Tribunal insurance policy, we have regularly used the provision of HR advice on areas as diverse as redundancies, restructuring, contracts, employment disputes and disciplinary issues.  The advice given has always been provided in a prompt, friendly yet professional manner and has made a major difference to the way in which we have been able to manage our business and run our operations.

    We would have no hesitation in recommending Tollers service to others, especially where a business is too small to justify its own HR department

    Paul Jephcott (Finance Director) Chiltern Cold Stroage Group Ltd
  • Throughout 10 years dealing with Rebecca and Tollers on our HR issues, it has alwats been easy, simple and professional.  Rebecca has guided Profoil through some, at times, very difficult HR decisions and in particular with the constant changing HR laws we have today.

    From a simple employment contract to our more complex employment issues, Rebecca has remained responsive, supportive, competent and committed to resolving our issues efficiently and effectively.

    We see Rebecca and Tollers as a very important support network to our company.

    Colin Deans MBE Profoil Limited
  • We have worked with Rebecca and Tollers for morethan 5 years and she is out go to person for complex employment law issues.  She is well-liked by me and my team, responsive and uses her knowledge and experience to develop pragmatic options and advice which takes account of organisational context.

    Rebecca is an excellent and very professional advocate who cuts through detail to develop very clear and effective arguments.  She is clearly passionate about her work and determined to get the best possible results for us, including cost-minimisation.

    I have no hesitation in recommending Rebecca and the quality of her work to organisations in the public and private sector.

    Susan Gardner-Craig (Head of People and Organisational Development) South Cambridgeshire District Council
  • I have used the services for a number of years.  Cathy Eaton is exceptional, very friendly and very professional.

    Mrs P A Collier
  • Cathy Eaton dealt with our matter very efficiently and actually helped us save money with regards to not requiring probate for my late father, having been bequested a small sum of money from another relative, to which we are very grateful.

    Mrs J Elms
  • I have dealt with Tollers for the last 2 years.  Firstly with Sally Smith regarding Family law and more recently with your team, in particular Angela Aitken.  In all instances I have been so well looked after, with really good advice that was personal enough to make me feel comfortable but professional enough to make me feel as though I was in safe hands.

    I think that Tollers offer a service which feels like it is a local, smaller company but with the professionalism that I would expect from a larger company.  For me, that is exaclty what I both needed and hoped for.

    Please pass on special thanks to Angela from me, she is a credit to your team.

    A. Faulkner
  • We would like to say a very big thank you for all of your advice on our matter, you have been very helpful throughout our contact with you and your staff have also been excellent.

    Mr and Mrs E
  • Thank you so much for all your hard work over the year sorting out my late mothers Will and Estate.  I would like to thank Mrs Eaton very much for all of her hard work.

    Mrs J Porter

    Mr J Mallender
  • My wife and I are very pleased with the exemplary service provided by Tollers.

    Miss L McCormack
  • Fees are very reasonable for the work carried out.  I would also like to add a particular word of praise for Meghna Desai, she had just the right blend of brisk professionalism and friendliness and I wish her every success in the future.

    Mrs Samuel
  • I would like to take this opportunity to personally thank you for all the hard work and advice you have given over the last 15 months, as I genuinely feel that without your knowledge and assistance I would not have achieved the required result.

     

    I will certainly be recommending you to anyone I come across in the future.

    Mr G

    Mrs N
  • I would like to say a big 'Thank you' for your efficient and excellent service provided during the most upsetting time of my life.

    Mrs 'C'
  • Great serivice by Tollers Solicitors. 

    I needed my Franchise Agreement checked and Tollers are experienced in this area.  I sent the agreement to Ayesha in advance of our meeting and she had reviewed the document in detail.

    Our meeting was straight forward, we sat and went through the agreement, Ayesha had highlighted the items that I should be aware of and that I should query back to my Franchisor.

    All my questions were answered on the spot, indicating professionalism and experience.

    I would use Tollers again if needed.

    Neeta Patel
  • Since working with Tollers I have been extremely pleased with the support and guidance provided by Rebecca Wilson and her team.  I found Rebecca to be highly professional and very approachable.  She was always prompt in returning calls and emails in respect to advice I was seeking, providing clear and precise instructions.  I have total confidence in Rebecca and would highly recommend Tollers in the Future.  A first class service, thank you.

    Client testimonial
  • "So happy with how my claim was dealt with. Karen was friendly, helpful and professional. I will be recommending Tollers to family and friends".

    Happy Client
  • "I specifically searched for a company who were more experienced with children. Even though it's been a long process, it has been well worth it. My daughter now has a secure start to adulthood. My Solicitor was excellent, he really helped, especially with liasing with the Court last year during a family bereavement, which did delay proceedings for a while. In a way this was for the best, as my daughters symptoms continued outside the time scale of the doctors opinion, so Tollers were able to secure Eleanor a little bit (a lot to us!) more money. Thank you all, but especially to Nick Davis who has helped a lot along the way".

    R Seabright
  • "Veronica dealt with my claim in the most sensitive way showing concern and patience.

    Once again my thanks and gratitude for your professional manner and determination in negotiating my claim".

    Rita Gee
  • “Tollers were absolutely fantastic! The communication was brilliant, they would send a letter out to me and then give me a call to tell me it was on its way. If I called and Mr Boobyer wasn’t available then a colleague of his would help me or he would call me straight back, even his secretary was brilliant. The communication stayed consistent throughout the case. Never a break down and I never had to chase them. I really couldn’t fault them. If ever I had a problem understanding the paperwork David would explain it, he and his team are all very understanding, I would give them 150 out of 100 and would definitely recommend them.”

  • "Superb, I am very happy with how Stephanie dealt with my case".

    Mr Shurety, High Wycombe
  • If you are considering which firm of solicitors to choose, then you can do no better than to select Tollers.  I have been a client for almost 9 years and feel better qualified than most to comment as I have relied on various people within the company to help me.

    Firstly, I needed help to make a Will and to rearrange my affairs after the death of my husband in 2007.  Barry Rogers was my first point of contact.  After  that Barry helped me to arrange a Lasting Power of Attorney for my disabled brother following the death of our mother, and he is now a trustee and joint Attorney for him.

    In 2013, I bought the property next to mine and relied on the valuable services of David Wootton and his team to complete the purchase.

    Most recently, I have been fortunate enough to have the help of Julie Yates.  As Senior Probate Manager, she organised Lasting Powers of Attorney for my aunt in Worcestershire.  For me, Tollers are unrivalled in their services and I have less happy experiences with other firms of solicitors to make a comparison, so my judgement is not just based on emotional criteria but on those of efficiency, clarity, probity and empathy.  Yes, one pays for the service, but you can trust everyone you deal with and there is a warmth and compassion from all those who are involved.

    Barry Rogers is like a rock in the background for me and that is hugely important, especially when you are making important decisions alone and on behalf of those you love.  His advice is always clear and honest and he is most patient and tolerant when I change my mind about things and cause extra work.

    Julie Yates visted my late uncle and aunt in Worcestershire in order to prepare the Powers of Attorney for them. Following the death of my uncle, she has continued to provide support to my aunt at my request and I cannot praise her enough for her work, which went well beyond the call of duty.

    Lastly, it is no exaggeration to say that I will rely on Tollers to continue to look after my affairs beyond my lifetime.  My brothers affairs are in their charge and I have absolute faith in that.  It reassures me to know that, as a vulnerable adult, he will be protected by people in whom I have absolute trust.  There can be no higher praise than that.

  • Cheryl Hawkins recently acted for my wife and I in our sale and purchase. The whole transaction went through very smoothly and I was impressed with the professional and informative attitude of Cheryl and her team. We were regularly updated as to the progression of the sale and purchase and Cheryl and her team managed to take away some of the stress which usual accompanies a house move. We are delighted with our new property and would not hesitate in recommending Cheryl and Tollers to friends and relatives.

    Mr and Mrs J Brian
  • Tollers staff were very professional and helpful.  Their good advice and updates regarding costings helped me immensely.  A very good service.

    Mr P Desmond
  • This is just to say, belatedly, how very impressed I have been in all our dealings with the quality and efficiency of the Tollers service, and also in particular with Cheryls proactive approach and general attention to detail. We would have absolutely no hesitation in coming to you again for conveyancing work. I had wondered whether the late flurry of activity around occupation ahead of completion and the damage to the garden wall would have translated into additional costs - which in the circumstances would have been entirely possible - and so we feel especially grateful for your work on those issues.

    The repairs to the wall, incidentally, were completed on Thursday, by an excellent and personable bricklayer, and we are entirely content with the result. Though the idea of a retention was resisted by the sellers, I am sure that your suggestion ensured that the works were done as speedily as possible. We have also now had a refund on our mortgage account with Nationwide.

    Mr H Cattermole
  • I was more than happy with the service I received. Mr Boobyer was very helpful and supportive

    Mrs Dixon of Northampton
  • "Tollers was recommended to me when my father passed away and left the property I lived in as a legacy to a charity. With the fear of being made homeless and my personal situation not allowing me to rent or purchase a property of my own, I was put in contact with Mr Tom Kings of Tollers. Mr Kings was very helpful and understanding at every step along the way. He kept us fully informed at every opportunity and was always available should we need him. During the four years the case was on going for, Mr Kings remained fully focused and kept us hopeful and optimistic for the future. Along the way Mr Kings worked alongside a barrister who was also exceptionally clued into the case. We cannot thank Mr Kings and Tollers enough".

    Mr V Mark
  • "I found Tollers to do an outstanding job of my professional negligence claim. They advised me clearly on matters that I did not understand and were very supportive. Thank you to Tiffany Wiggett for all her help and support in this matter".

    M. Byfield.
  • "Tollers conducted this probate matter in a thoroughly professional manner and I was kept updated in a very timely manner as the case progressed. I found both Mr Tom Kings and Miss Tiffany Wiggett who handled the case, to be extremely approachable and nothing was too much trouble. I always felt very comfortable with the advice which Tiffany gave and she inspired confidence every step of the way. The matter progressed to a mediation hearing and Tiffany obtained a Barrister who worked with Tiffany on the case and a satisfactory result was obtained. My case was far from straightforward and throughout the advice given was accurate and led to the case being finalised in a shorter period of time than I initially thought. I would now have no hesitation in recommending Tollers and in particular Tiffany Wiggett to deal with any probate dispute you may have. Thank you Tiffany it was great knowing you".

    B Preston
  • "I was uncertain about the referral as I did not know anything about the legal firm. Very quickly I realised this was a quality referral. Tollers are a firm that can compete with any other and have a wealth of experience dealing with contentious probate. Most impressed by their professional approach and thanks to this I leave this experience with integrity and self respect about my motives. Highly recommend."

    Mrs Shaw
  • "I did not know what to do about contesting my late step-father's Will, so I contacted Tollers and Tiffany Wiggett returned my request for advice and my mind was put at rest. She explained in English what to do and did it. I would recommend her highly."

    Mr. Featherstone
  • Solicitors are people we think we can trust to get it right every time but there are occasions when they get it badly wrong. In my particular case I found it useful to talk about it with another unconnected professional who was able to reassure me that the service I received was not adequate together with advice about the most effective way to carry the case forward. I felt I had a strong case before I sought professional advice but after the call I feel better able to stand my corner and take the case as far as necessary. Thank you for your help

    Mr Preston
  • "From the first point of contact to the last, was done with the utmost of care. Tiffany was excellent and I cannot thank her enough. I would recommend Tollers to anyone."

    Mr Saunders
  • Miss Wiggett is an extremely able and competent solicitor with an ability to listen to her clients. In short, a nice person as well!

    Client
  • "I was delighted that Tollers offered to take this case, which I had begun to think was a closed door. The service I received was always courteous, prompt and lucid. My decision to settle was ultimately based on time constraints and the very uncertain nature of outcome had I decided to proceed further. I am happy with the manner in which the case was handled and certainly would conclude that raising this dispute was worth the considerable time and trouble it took to assemble all of the necessary testimonials".

    Anya Glinski
  • Tiffany, thank you so much for all your hard work. Without you and Tom, I would never have sold my father's house.

    Client

    B.A.R Huddersfield in W. Yorkshire
  • "I found the advice I was given was very helpful and precise. The solicitor I spoke to was very friendly and I felt comfortable while listening to the advice I was given. I recommend them highly".

    S. Hopkins
  • "My business with Tollers was of a very minor nature and yet I found them to very quick and efficient. All of the work was conducted via email and I was always confident that though I lived in Canada, Tollers was working for my best interest in the UK. My particular contact solicitor was Tiffany Wiggett, who was most helpful in gathering the information I required and bundling it into an informative and easy to read letters.Thank You".

    A Client
  • Alan Peck was absolutely brilliant in dealing with my divorce. I would fully recommend using him to anyone. As a woman on my own with very little knowledge of the legal system and much apprehension of putting both myself and my childrens future into his hands, he gave me the support, confidence and expert knowledge in order to negotiate my divorce from the beginning to the end. I can't even begin to tell you how much it has meant.

His friendly approach helped me through very difficult times, when I was in court for my children, and without his help I feel I wouldn't have the relationship with my daughters, like I do now. Every time I rang he had time to talk me through how to approach the situation, which I appreciated greatly.

    L. Fowler

I would definitely come back to Tollers and recommend you!

  • I just wanted to drop you a line to thank you and your team for the excellent work you did towards our recent sale of 8 The Avenue and the associated purchase of Mountstephens Farm. It was certainly the most drawn out and stress inducing house sale that we have ever been involved with and I know that everyone concerned was very glad when it all finally went through. We certainly were! What made a challenging situation easier to deal with was the excellent communication between the parties and I'd like to thank you and the team both for your advice on various matters and for your response to the changing situation. I felt very confident that you were on top of everything throughout, and that I had made the right choice when selecting Tollers to handle our Conveyancing. We have now been here a month, and are unpackeed and settled in, and I look forward to hearing from you in due course with respect to the outstanding matters of the insurance policy for the common land access and the amended final documents and deeds from the Land Registry.

At the advice of Tristan an offer was rejected and after many months of medical reports and tests an offer of well over double the initial amount was made. Whilst this was a traumatic time for my mum she feels very strongly that it could have been a lot worse without the efforts of Tollers and would like to take this opportunity to thank Tristan and his team for all their guidance and support. Both of us would have no hesitation in recommending Tollers in the future".

    Paul & Grace Anstee
  • I wanted to take the time to thank Stephanie Jervis of Tollers solicitors for all the work she did with me on my case and won. I feel Stephanie worked hard for me and always did what was in my best interests. I was always kept up to date with every aspect of my case. I found Stephanie to be the most professional yet friendly person I have ever worked with and the work and dedication she showed to my case I can't find the words to put down to say how grateful I am and how hard she worked even when things weren't going our way she never gave up and won my case. I would have no hesitation recommending Stephanie to anyone and feel she is a true asset to Tollers solicitors. Good luck in the future And thank u from the bottom of my heart.

    B Gidney
  • Everyone was so fantastic!

    J Stenlake
  • I must say that you and Tollers have amazed me in the way that you seem to understand the needs of your clients, certainly in my case. This process shows excellent customer service and an understanding of the clients needs especially with the lengthy timescale's that can be involved in such cases. As the financial expectations of the clients are generally all that is important after the incident, so any unexpected payment seem to be a break in the waiting game, this along with the money is extremely helpful. Thank you once again and for representing me in my claim.

    L Beatty

    Chris Wallington
  • Following an accident where another driver collided into the rear of my stationary vehicle (whilst I was sat at the wheel), I appointed Tollers Solicitors to assist with recovering the costs for the damages to my vehicle and the injuries I had sustained as a result of the accident. From the first telephone conversation, to the appointed specialist who assisted me with the completion of the forms, I felt as though my case was being handled with the utmost priority. The staff at Tollers were extremely patient and courteous, explaining every step of the claims process as we embarked upon recovering costs for the unfortunate accident. The advice given was practical and easy to understand, and as such a satisfactory conclusion was reached in a far shorter space of time than I had anticipated, with the insurance company for the third party settling the case within 6 months of the accident. I cannot thank David and his team enough for bringing this case to a prompt close, and would not hesitate in recommending the services of Toller’s to colleagues, friends and family. Thank you Toller’s, for a truly excellent service

Mr X was required to lift over 400 heavy items during any one shift and was not provided with any suitable lifting training. Mr X was required to have surgery. Mr X was awarded compensation in the sum of £5,500.00. The claim was successful pursued against Mr X's employer as they were in breach of their statutory duties under the Manual Handling Operations Regulations 1999 and the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999.

  • Mrs W was successful in a claim against a Primary Care Trust following an accident which arose as a result of a defect in a car park premises. The defect was sunken tarmac of a difference of 6cm which caused Mrs W to trip and fall and sustain a soft tissue injury to her cheekbone and right shoulder. Mrs W was successful in her claim against the PCT who failed to ensure that she was reasonably safe when using the premises as a lawful visitor under Section 2 of the Occupiers Liability Act 1957. Tollers LLP helped Mrs W to secure an award of compensation in the region of £3,000.00. She commented that she was very happy with the service provided by Karen Mann throughout the lengthy process of her accident claim. All aspects were fully outlined by Karen, and all documents requiring completion or comment were clearly explained. She received regular updates as to the progress of the claim, and was kept informed of the various liability problems. The service was invariably polite and courteous, and she would not hesitate in recommending Karen or Tollers LLP to any aquaintances who had a requirement of legal advice or representation.

  • Mrs G had an accident in a High Street when she tripped over a dangerous defective paving stone resulting in her sustaining a sprained ankle. Mrs G was successful in pursuing a claim against the local council in negligence and breach of their statutory duty of care under the Highways Act 1980. Tollers were successful in securing Mrs G close to £4,000.00 compensation for her pain, suffering and loss of amenity and uninsured losses.

  • Karen Mann at Tollers LLP helped Mrs S of Northampton as a result of an accident that occurred in a bar. Mrs S fell down some steps in a bar which were not visible due to a dry smoke machine which was in use by staff. As a result of the fall Mrs S sustained a rotator cuff tear of her shoulder which required surgery. Tollers LLP helped Mrs S secure an award of over £6,000.00. Mrs S was successful because the bar were in breach of their statutory duty under Section 2 of the Occupiers Liability Act 1957 for failing to ensure that Mrs S was reasonably safe in using the premises. I would recommend Tollers as they are efficient, helpful and regularly update you on the progress of your claim. Courteous professional staff that make you feel that you are in safe hands.

    Mrs S
  • I have been very impressed with Tollers who have worked so hard to win this case. I am also relieved that no-one else is at risk from a similar accident or injury on those premises in the future.

  • Just keep up the standards you are at. Overall very good.

    Mr Talbot, Buckingham
  • For my part, I must admit that you have 'hand held' me through the process, explaining in plain English each step and keeping me informed all of the way. There is nothing worse than not knowing what is happening and hearing jargon that you don't understand. So I must say that Karen in particular and Tollers in general have been of great benefit to me. Thank you.

    Mr B, Milton Keynes
  • Keep going you don't need improving.

  • I have worked with Rebecca now for approximately 3 years. Rebecca not only gives me expert commercial advice on employment law she has become a virtual member of our HR team and a friend. Rebecca always makes herself available and never just gives us a text book answer. She has taken the time to really understand our business and will work with us to best resolve many complex situations. She is extremely pleasant to work with and quite unlike many employment lawyers I have worked with previously. All member of the team at Tollers are extremely personable and I wholeheartedly recommend both Rebecca and the entire team.

    J. Tanqueray
  • Tollers was recommended to me when my father passed away and left the property I lived in as a legacy to a charity. With the fear of being made homeless and my personal situation not allowing me to rent or purchase a property of my own, I was put in contact with Mr Tom Kings of Tollers. Mr Kings was very helpful and understanding at every step along the way. He kept us fully informed at every opportunity and was always available should we need him. During the four years the case was on going for, Mr Kings remained fully focused and kept us hopeful and optimistic for the future. Along the way Mr Kings worked alongside a barrister who was also exceptionally clued into the case. We cannot thank Mr Kings and Tollers enough.

    Mr V Mark
  • Speaking to Tom was like getting good advice from a trusted friend, very steady, very logical and spoken in good, normal straight English, which made me feel very comfortable. From Tom every detail had a legal answer, straight from the back of his head, obviously this man really knows exactly what to do, though he was never pushy but a fantastic guide to me. Tom & Tollers kept me scrupulously up to date with costs as we proceeded, so I knew exactly where I stood and it was easy to make needed decisions as the matter progressed.

  • Following the settlement of the dispute with my ex business partner, I would like to thank you for all your hard work to help bring this to a satisfactory conclusion. In particular I would like to praise you and your team for your calm and professional approach despite having to deal with an unusual set of circumstances and a particularly difficult individual on the other side. Whilst I hope that I won’t need engage you in the future for any similar disputes, I would certainly have no hesitation in using you or your company should I require legal assistance.

    A Robertson
  • I found the service offered by Tollers to be invaluable chiefly because of the complexity of the claim I was making to the FSCS. Although it is no doubt possible to submit a claim to the FSCS without seeking legal advice, talking through my claim with Tollers and deciding what the core of my claim should be proved key I believe to a successful outcome. In addition to being able to talk to someone who specialises in financial services law, as well as of course in wording and shaping a legal argument, the ability to share my concerns and worries, to have clarification at each stage of the claim’s formulation, responding to the FSCS on points of clarification once the claim had been submitted… all together helped to keep me sane.

    Michael P
  • I engaged Ian Carson to advise me on an issue with a long standing Client. The other party engaged a Solicitor who was particularly awkward and uncooperative to deal with. During the course of the process I found Ian’s manner to be professional at all times and his specialist skill allowed me to achieve the outcome that I had strived for from the outset. I would have no hesitation in recommending Ian and indeed Tollers to anyone seeking this type of representation.

    Mark Hunt, Direct of Hunters Solutions Limited
  • I am really grateful for the way in which Ian conducted this matter. He made my decision making very straightforward and consistently explained our opinions in a way that I could understand.

  • Right from the first meeting with David Richards a realistic view was given on what may lie ahead:

    • Costs
    • Time scales
    • Possible outcome
    • Risk

    This frank and clear advice helped me to make my decision to continue with the action. And along the way access to specialist skills and expert witness were introduced to support our case. David and his team kept me informed, spent time reassuring me of the process when I had concerns. They also ensured I was fully aware of the implications of each part of the process and correspondence. The professional approach and advice, without question bought this action to a successful and excellent conclusion in winning the day and bettering our anticipated financial outcome.
