I cannot recommend Jane Jacques highly enough. I expected my divorce to be a very difficult and tough experience but it was surprisingly seamless and stress free thanks to Jane.
She was friendly, approachable and efficient and she communicated with me at all times. I would like to thank Jane and Poole Alcock for their excellent customer service.
“Thank you Andrew thanks for all your hard work and the team we really appreciate it.”
I recommended a friend of mine to use Jane Jacques at Poole Alcock as his family solicitor as I found her to be highly professional and experienced. I was also aware that Jane is appointed by the Cheshire Police Federation to represent Cheshire Police officers and so I was confident that he would be in good hands. The feedback from my friend was excellent and he could not speak highly enough of Jane’s advice and assistance throughout the whole process. I wouldn’t think twice about recommending Jane and Poole Alcock again in the future.
Poole Alcock delivered exceptional support through a complex due diligence exercise involving several limited companies, leasehold and freehold properties.
Their professionalism, breadth and depth of expertise was key in concluding the sales transaction. A huge thank you, it was a pleasure working with the team.
Our relationship with Poole Alcock is an important one to St Luke’s Hospice for a few different reasons. For one Poole Alcock and staff have been supportive of St Luke’s as a local charity. Great efforts have been made both Corporately and by the team at Poole Alcock to raise much needed funds for us to care for the people of Mid and South Cheshire.Just as important to us is the support we have received professionally. We have used Poole Alcock’s legal services to minimise our risk and to help grow our business arm. The staff we have dealt with have been fantastic. We have always been dealt with courteously, professionally and with respect, and an understanding that the law can be complex for non-professionals to understand.This professionalism is underpinned by excellent knowledge and coupled together we are left feeling both supported and secure as an organisation….which means we can get on with what we are really here for, supporting and caring for our patients and their families.
“I cannot praise Poole Alcock highly enough for the work they have completed for us. The Academy conversion has gone extremely smoothly largely because of the excellent service we received from Sarah Jarrett who handled our conversion. Sarah kept us informed every step of the way; dealing with the Local Authority and the Department for Education. Headteachers rarely go through this process twice so it was hugely comforting to have the support of such an experienced and competent legal partner.”
You have been fantastic and completely on the ball with everything
Could you please pass my thanks to Richard for being so helpful, informative and generous with his time.
He gave me a really clear picture of all the options and processes involved. His informal advice was also really invaluable – such a refreshing experience compared to poor information and advice I had been given elsewhere. From the moment I walked in the door everything lived up to your website.
To Stacey & Lisa,
May we take this opportunity to thank you both very much for all the hard work you have done to help us with our house move.
We know it’s not been easy a times but we made it in the end.
Thank you for your hard work in reaching a settlement in the claim following the death of my late husband. The final sum far exceeded what I’d imagined it would be.
Again my thanks.
The Contract has been worth every penny and has been a great investment so I am very grateful.
I would like to thank you for the service that you and the team at Poole Alcock continue to provide to me and my clients. I recommended your HR Assist service to a long standing large client, over twelve months ago and they have been very impressed with the service and have renewed for their second year.
There are many HR/Employment law providers in the market place. The HR Assist product is very competitively priced and the service and advice from the employment law solicitors is of the highest standard.
I would not hesitate in continuing to recommend you and your team to friends, family and clients in the future.
Thank you so much for the professional way you handled the sale of our house
Special thanks to Sarah Jarrett and Scott Harding from Poole Alcock who provided us with legal assistance for a management buyout and HR assistance for our business. We have been delighted with the levels of service, advice, friendliness and positive approach from Sarah and Scott, as well as all the support staff at Poole Alcock. All aspects were dealt with in a personable but meticulous and professional manner with plain English explanations which was very much appreciated. We would highly recommend Poole Alcock Solicitors to other businesses and individuals that are considering instructing legal services. Thanks again for all your help and continued support.
Adam Pavey sensitively but strongly helped us manage our way through a potentially difficult employment dispute. He helped us right wrongs and achieve a fair and satisfactory financial settlement. I highly recommend his services.
I just wanted to say thank you for always believing in me. I will be forever thankful to you for always understanding me. Its like you were in my head the whole way through. You’ve been by my side for almost a year now and it meant a lot that you believed in me.
I just wanted to thank you for the way your solicitor, Stuart Flood defended my cousin at Crewe Magistrates Courts recently.
Stuart did a tremendous job of keeping the case at the Magistrates Courts and in getting the best possible outcome we could have ever hoped for. All concerned were mightily impressed at his skill & professionalism. Stuart and the Probation Officer were a formidable team.
Thank you once again from all the family. One never knows whats is around the corner but with respect, hopefully we won’t be in need of your defence services again, however, if we do we will know where to come.
“I just wanted to say thank you. As frustrating as this whole thing was for me, on the occasions when I could have and would have felt very vulnerable and way out of my comfort zone, you brought the situation back to being very relaxed and “human”. I really appreciate that, I doubt I could have had that experience on a court day with many solicitors, and I honestly left the court hearing on both occasions pleased it was you at my side. Thanks Amie, I’ll be back in touch if I need to, but for now I hope all is good with you.”
Thanks James, I wish you the best of luck in the next stage of your training. The service that you have provided has been excellent and far superior to other solicitors that I have used it the past. Should you require any supporting evidence for your portfolio I would be happy to write a more detailed account of this.
I am pleased to submit this testimonial relating to the service provided by Nichola Armstrong of Poole Alcock Solicitors on my behalf relating to the sale of a commercial property in Congleton, Cheshire.
What started out a a straight forward transaction soon altered as a number of awkward and time consuming problems caused by the purchaser developed with additional parties becoming involved. Much of this work was carried out whilst I was residing in France.
Throughout the transaction Nichola acted in the most professional manner, keeping me informed and offering advice and guidance at all times. This resulted a successful completion of the sale.
I have no hesitation in recommending Nichola to anyone looking for an outstanding professional to act for them in any situation
I was referred to Poole Alcock as a partnering legal company whom demonstrated a level of professionalism and care, which surpassed many of their competitors. It was a real concern of mine to change legal partners, however that said, moving to PA has without a doubt been one of the most productive business decisions we have made. Upon speaking with Luke Pritchard and his team, we opted for their Business Assist package.
Luke and his team make the legal challenges/questions faced by businesses, painless. He proactively assists with our corporate and international client’s legal teams requirements. Our legal documentation is maintained and refreshed regularly whilst new product launches are backed by comprehensive and concise agreements. Having worked with a number of legal teams over the years, finding a Solicitor with not only the passion and drive that Luke has, yet a sense of humour also, is a real breath of fresh air!
This is just a quick note to thank you very much for all your help on Friday 16th at Crewe Magistrates Court.
You understood my exact situation perfectly and communicated this very effectively to the court. You were a great comfort to me in unfamiliar circumstances.
Thank you very much again and you are correct – things are looking up once more!
I would just like to personally drop you a line to thank you for your considerable personal and professional effort today, I am well aware that its your job, however when I spoke to Scott before he assured me without reservation that you were the man for the job, he was absolutely correct, I would have no hesitation in recommending your services to anyone who may be in as an unfortunate situation that we were today.
Just wanted to say a massive thank you for all your hard work and effort and most importantly support involving my divorce.
It was one of the most traumatic experiences I have ever been through, however your attitude and your focus made me stay determined in securing a better outcome then I ever first thought.
Being able to speak to you at any point in what was a harrowing process was quickly short lived when I was able to build up a relationship with your dedicated secretary Louise and most importantly a fully committed relationship with yourself.
Your experience and reassurances made the last 12 months somewhat bearable especially with your expertise in involving children in a divorce.
With the added pressure of a Non-molestation and Occupation order, your support was second to none towards myself and my children.
I will have no qualms at recommending you to all my friends and family if a solicitor is ever required.
Poole Alcock are incredibly lucky to have you on their team and I wish you every success in furthering your career.
I used Poole Alcock for my divorce. On my first meeting with Jane Jacques I was in a complete state of panic about what was happening. She immediately put me at ease and I felt confident that my case was going to be in the right hands. From the outset everyone was very professional but at the same time very caring.
It was unfortunately a very difficult, drawn out case, but every dealing I had with Jane left me feeling positive and confident.
I was kept informed every step of the way and Poole Alcock were very upfront about the process and the expected costs.
At one point I had to deal with another solicitor – Nicola Deakin. Nicola was also lovely, professional and caring. The barrister appointed by Poole Alcock was excellent. Mr Julian Shaw was extremely experienced and knowledgeable and did a fantastic job in court for me.
As my case now draws to a close I can’t thank the team at Poole Alcock enough. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending the firm and especially Jane Jacques to anyone requiring a family law solicitor.
I just wanted to write to you to say thank you for the fantastic service that you and your team have provided so far with HR Assist. I think the product is fantastic and couldn’t be without it.
I didn’t think that Owl Projects needed a service like HR Assist, until I had cause to call you for advice on an employment law matter. It was that conversation that triggered my interest in taking up HR Assist and I am so glad we did! I didn’t realise how exposed we were to having a claim made against us. I now have peace of mind knowing that all of our HR needs are taken care of and that all of our contracts, handbooks, documents and processes are kept up to date by specialist solicitors.
I would heavily recommend Poole Alcock and HR Assist to any business. It’s scary how quickly the law changes and things become out of date. I didn’t understand how massive the area of HR is. I don’t have to worry about that anymore.
Thank you for your time today, and all the advice given, very much appreciated and you made me feel at ease from the beginning. Excellent service needs recognition.
On behalf of myself and family, we would like to thank you, and everyone concerned, for the successful conclusion of our claim. It was a long road that seemed to have no end, but you never gave up, so to you Andrew and everyone at Poole Alcock LLP, we wish you all the best in the future and may the company prosper in the coming years as it surely deserves to for your dedication to your client.
I visited Jane recently at the new offices in Congleton. The offices are beautiful and very well situated. Jane Jacques is a credit to her profession – extremely knowledgeable and incredibly professional. Jane took the time to fully explain the next steps and how the overall process would work. I left feeling very secure in the information I had received and extremely well supported by Jane herself.
I would highly recommend Jane and Poole Alcock. Thank you for all your help and support
I used the conveyancing services of Poole Alcock to deal with my house sale and subsequent related purchase in July 2017.
Sarah Hooper at the Alsager branch was my main point of contact, she is delightful to deal with; friendly, professional, with excellent customer service skills. She was proactive, in regular contact, and just generally wonderful at reassuring me and keeping me informed. Even better, when Sarah was unavailable to speak to, the rest of her team were also excellent, and always knew what was going on with my transactions. Having had an absolute nightmare when we last went through property sale and purchase 6 years previously (using a different firm), it was totally refreshing to have such a positive experience this time around.
An extremely approachable, professional and dedicated team providing a high level of client care. On occasions when we have needed support and guidance, we have received a timely and informed response. The team have listened to the needs of our organisation and supported a bespoke approach to meet our requirements.
Thank you for all the hard work you have done for me.
The service I received from Eve Lakin was very respectful, professional and helpful and I noted a clear emphasis in ensuring that the communication was agile throughout the process of developing contracts for a specialist area of work. The professional advice was thorough and efforts were noted in understanding fully the particularly specialised points to be included in the contract requested. Thank you! A trusting professional place to come back when seeking legal advice.
Super fast and helpful! Gill was great and got us in the property before X-Mas which was amazing, how she managed to do this in 3-4 weeks is beyond me…. absolutely outstanding! highly recommended!!
The unexpected experience of a H&S Executive prosecution was facing my company and this proved to extend over a period of several months because of the slow process. I instructed Poole Alcock to handle the matter on behalf of the company and I found Dan Brooks, the Partner who heads up Criminal Litigation, to be extremely supportive and responsive from initial enquiry and instruction through to the hearing and thereafter. The process did prove to be stressful but Poole Alcock walked us through each stage and ensured that it went as smoothly as possible. I was specifically grateful for Dan’s advice on the day of the trial. Their advice proved to be accurate and their recommendations were offered sympathetically and in a measured way.
I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending the services of Poole Alcock to any company facing similar circumstances.
We asked Sarah Jarrett of Poole Alcock Solicitors to assist us in purchasing a small accountancy practice to merge into our own business.
Sarah talked us through all of the legalities of doing this, drafted a thorough contract for approval by all parties and always kept us informed throughout this complicated procedure.
She liaised with the vendors solicitors continually and helped us all to negotiate the finer points of the company purchase.
Although sadly the vendor eventually pulled out of the deal we received very good service during the process and would have no hesitation to use Poole Alcock again when the need arises.
We consider Poole Alcock to be an invaluable business partner. Luke and the team took the time to truly understand our business and have tailored a package exactly to our needs.
With Business Assist we have the reassurance that we can receive speedy, professional, commercial legal support at any time, across a range of requirements. We have saved both time and money using the service, which has benefitted us hugely during a period of sustained growth.
