What Our Clients Say About Sally
The service from Sally Smith was excellent throughout both my divorce and maintenance recovery cases. The quality of advice and communication was professional, effective, calm and measured despite very challenging behaviours from the other party and their solicitor. Her clarity of thought and action inspires confidence and I would recommend her to act on anyone’s behalf.
Mr. M.D.W
What Our Clients Say About Sally
Sally's guidance through this process has meant an awful lot to me and I just want to say a huge thank you for making what was an awful period significantly easier, her help was much appreciated.
Mrs. S - Northants
What Our Clients Say About Sally
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 exactly what I both needed and hoped for. Please pass on special thanks to Angela from me, she is a credit to your team.

Very honest information and advice, not always what you may wish to hear but certainly what you needed to hear.
Mr Bailey

Sally Smith provided me with a first rate service and helped me sort out my legal affairs at a very stressful time.  She dealt with me in a sympathetic and professional manner, which was much appreciated.
