How I’ve helped our clients

From the outset, I found Lisa to be professional, capable, knowledgeable and attentive; she remained all of those things throughout the 8 month process of gaining possession. Uncooperative tenants made the situation very stressful at times; Lisa's warmth and understanding was so appreciated and made the difficult times a lot more bearable. Because of my experience with Lisa, I have decided to use Paris Smith for all of our legal needs from now on. I have been working with various solicitor firms in Southampton for decades but I have rarely enjoyed such a high level of client service.
