“I recently contacted Milners Solicitors regarding a personal injury claim after a recommendation from a family friend. From the beginning it was Dylan that handled my case and he remained the only person I had contact with throughout. He was very professional and helpful and provided a personal service which I imagine larger companies would not be able to provide. I was very happy with the result which Dylan achieved for me. I found their fees to be fair and was well informed of costs upfront. I have no regrets in choosing Milners and should I require legal services in the future I would not hesitate to use them again. I would equally recommend them to anyone considering using them. “
“Milners completed the conveyancing on my home. The service was fast and professional, much better than solicitors I have used in the past on similar properties. Thank you!”
“I would just like to say a huge thank you to the conveyancing department who have been absolutely great and I can’t thank you enough for everything you’ve done for us.”
“Straightforward and practical advice with very transparent pricing – a refreshing change from a solicitors! Simon Bass was both supportive legally and personally after a recent bereavement, as well as being a lovely chap with it.”
