What our clients say

  • 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.

    Martin Jones – Director, Practicon Limited.
  • Excellent, prompt, totally efficient service provided at a very fair price. Very friendly solicitor and staff. Superb customer service throughout the transaction. Totally trustworthy. Thank you so much.

    Mr D B
  • The usual 1st class service from Gill. I shall be contacting her next year with my next property sale.

    Mr and Mrs Hignett
  • Thank you so much for your kind and caring approach and for your complete dedication.

    M, Cheshire
  • Thank you for the sensitive, helpful and efficient way you have assisted me with revising my Will and setting place the Lasting Powers of Attorney at a difficult time.

  • Helen, Just want to say a big thank you to you and your team now everything has come to an end.

    Thank you again

  • The staff are very helpful and professional and explained everything clearly. I would recommend Poole Alcock Solicitors every time.

    A W
  • I am more than satisfied with the service I have received which has always linked knowledge with the utmost courtesy and discretion.

    Mary Jones
  • Well thank you for everything Helen you have been amazing , and will always recommend you to others.

    Miss S, Cheshire
  • Tim was very easy to talk to and provided appropriate re-assurance.

  • Kate and Lindsay have been fantastic. They’ve known the tight time frame which was about 4 or 5 weeks and this didn’t deter them. They have been tenacious and super efficient and its been a really positive experience so far that has been zero stress for us. I did have a mild panic last week over financials, and Kate went beyond what she had to do to put my mind at rest. Lindsay is super quick to respond to emails and reassuring, which for me, communication is a big thing. I am confident we will complete on time, and if we don’t, it will not be because of Kate or Lindsay.

    I wanted to thank you all for your help and tell you how pleased we are with our experience. Simply rating 5 on a 1 question survey didn’t seem to do you justice.

    You have an excellent team, look after them! We will not hesitate to recommend you to our friends and family.

    Mark Vale
  • Easy & rapid communication – Great team!

    Mrs Dorothy Harvey Morgan-Smith and Dr Rhodri Morgan-Smith
  • Poole Alcock were my first choice of solicitors and throughout my claim from start to finish Anna Burns was so supportive to me. She showed me a great deal of empathy due to the nature of my claim. I feel we built an excellent professional relationship and Anna was always available to speak to if I needed to ask any questions. On the rare occasions that I could not reach Anna, all of the supporting staff at Poole Alcock were equally supportive and helpful. The claim ran as smooth and as stress free as it possibly could and I was always well informed of any changes or upcoming appointments. I would highly recommend Poole Alcock.

    Thank you for everything Anna. I literally could not have got through all of this without you and all your support.

  • Thank you for all of your help. You did amazing job and I couldn’t have asked for more. Thank you once again.

    Mr W, Family Client
  • I should like to thank you for your excellent service throughout the progress of my claim; you have been very personable and professional. More specifically, you very quickly got to grips with the detail of my accident, which allowed you to form a very accurate opinion of the eventual outcome. I appreciated not only your advice, but also your willingness to be guided by my objectives. The fact that the defendant made an offer so quickly, and at a level you had intimated to be a reasonable expectation at the outset, is testament to your expertise. Finally, your pleasant manner made the whole process painless and even enjoyable!

    Mr A, Cheshire
  • The most helpful and efficient experience I have ever had with any solicitor.

    Roger Malpas – Wills and Probate Client
  • I would just like to thank you for all the help and advice that you have given me over the last few months. It was a pity we could not meet face to face ( strange times we live in ). Once again thank you and all the best for the future.

    Mr C – Family Client
  • Nicola and team have been amazing, always friendly and going the extra mile. We would highly recommend them.

    Mr A A and Mrs R A
  • Great service and very transparent process. Made selling my business very easy and stress free. Will definitely use again for future endeavours.

  • You and Rachael have been absolutely fantastic honestly you should be so proud, she always kept me calm in court.  All of you deserve recognition and I’m so proud to have Poole Alcock represent me and E. Honestly I know she is paid to be my solicitor but she was the first person that made me feel like I had someone on my side fighting for me and E.  You have both been amazing and I really do appreciate all the work being done for me and E.

    B B , Family Client
  • Solicitors can sometimes be quite intimidating, but Darren Neighbour and Emily (paralegal) break the mould.  They are easy to talk to and answer every question we throw at them in laymans terms without being patronising.  They respond promptly to any queries and keep us informed on progress.  Wouldn’t dream of using anyone else.

    Mrs M Burgess and Mr D Burgess
  • Gill and her team were great throughout the whole process and we will be returning for their expertise when selling our current property.

    C T and A M – Conveyancing Clients
  • 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.

    Mr L
  • First class service from Danielle Roberts. Empathy, understanding our needs and nothing was too much trouble.

    Trevor and Jane Leese
  • Everyone I dealt with was professional, efficient, patient, and human! Mandy at reception fielding my (many) calls and Tania who calmly pointed out the intricacies of the process in terms I could understand.

    I would particularly like to praise Leanne Salt who, apart from the occasional conversation with Tania, dealt with this sale

    This has been a fraught process ( nothing to do with Poole Alcock I must stress) particularly with an uncommunicative and slow buyer’s solicitor causing what should have been a  straightforward sale to be drawn out and stressful but Leanne did all she could to progress it, even liaising with the estate agent when the the buyer’s solicitor was not forthcoming.

    Without her being so proactive I really don’t know when, or even if, we would have completed.

    With Leanne I felt that she was always fighting my corner and I felt I could to talk to her as a person.

    If I were to sell another property I would certainly use Poole Alcock as long as Leanne handled it.

    Paul Davis
  • Thank you for all you have done with regard to our uncle’s estate. Your kind and friendly manner helped us greatly as you guided us through the process.

    J and M J & CH
  • The overall service and advice provided by the acting Solicitor, Mr Charles Smalley was excellent in every way.

    B H
  • An excellent service throughout. My sincere thanks to Claire and Danielle for all work and advice.

    John Wicks and Shelley Wicks
  • Thank you for all your help, couldn’t have wished for a better person to sort out my affairs. She was very understanding and professional and sensitive. A joy to talk to!

    Mrs Brunskill
  • Louise, Rachael and Julie (Reception)

    Thank you for always being at the end of the phone and getting us thought the past couple of years, lots of love.

    Ms H – Family Client
  • 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.

    Mr E L
  • Just wanted to say thank you for your assistance and support with the purchase of our first home. As first time buyers, the task can be a very daunting one with many questions and unknowns. Thank you for making it all seamless and straightforward. We definitely look forward to working with you in the future.

    J and S
  • I would like to thank you most sincerely for the way you have sensitively handled every aspect of my case, particularly in light of the difficulty I encountered for the first few months.

    Kathryn Leonard
  • Very friendly and professional solicitors. Always on hand for any questions regarding the conveyancing. Well done Poole Alcock and a thank you to Gill Mealor who took the lead for our sale.

    John Rose and Cheryl Rose
  • Since my case completed, I never had the chance to thank you for everything you did for me.

    You honestly have no idea how much it meant at really one of the most difficult times in my life, and certainly in my career.

    From the moment I came in to see you, I felt a weight had been lifted and your experience, professionalism and knowledge guided and assisted me to achieving a good outcome.

    I truly can’t thank you and the team enough for your support and guidance throughout the process I have been through.

  • Excellent service at all times.

    M W & D W
  • Amazing, Claire is a diamond!

    Mrs Scott
  • 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.

  • Andrew was excellent in the way he explained everything to us. The advice he also gave was well received. Thank you Andrew.

    Peter Alan Smith and Rosemary Jeannie Smith
  • A huge thank you for the manner and professionalism as the case was brought to a close. Very easy to deal with and nothing was too much to ask for in guiding us through to an outcome we were happy with. Both Sarah-Jane and Holly kept us up to speed throughout.

    A D – Litigation Client
  • Pleased with the level of understanding of my needs, while showing a high level of humanity and professionalism.

    David John Wainwright
  • Claire and the team were extremely helpful, polite and professional at all times but still managed to be approachable and friendly. I would not hesitate to recommend them.

    Mr David Abel and Mrs Sally Abel
  • Very satisfied. I found Claire to be very professional. She made me feel relaxed and she was extremely easy to talk to.

    Pamela Duffin
  • I can recommend Sarah Jarrett ( Head of Agriculture) with great confidence.

    We refinanced for a holiday rental recently and Sarah is easy to talk to and gives clear understandable advice; she works tirelessly to achieve a speedy outcome. An absolute pleasure to work with and good at making the other team respond with action.

    Her associate Alisha Whitehouse is extremely efficient at keeping the other side engaged and keeping me informed of all proceedings . An amazing team everyone needs to have working for them.


    Andrew Jackson – Gate Farm
  • Very caring, thoughtful and understanding.

  • Mr Flood is a wizard in Court!

    Crime and Regulatory Defence Client
  • We just wanted to thank you very much for your valuable time on Tuesday afternoon.  We appreciated not only your wise counsel, but also your kind manner and generosity.

    You are a lovely person and we feel very grateful that it was you with whom we were put in touch.  We both felt so much better for speaking with you and having the benefit of your expertise – thank you.

    We shall definitely be coming to your Nantwich practice to sort out our wills – and you will most certainly be our choice of solicitor when we next have a conveyancing requirement.

    Diana Carter
  • Thank you so much Helen.

    Honestly from the bottom of my heart I can’t thank you enough for you help and support over the last 18months – 2 years! I wouldn’t be where I am now without your help and support, even when I didn’t make right decisions you were still there to help me and never judged me.

    You are an an absolute credit to Poole Alcock and I am very lucky to have had the pleasure of you representing me and my girls!

    Mrs T, Cheshire
  • Many thanks to Georgina Coppenhall for her prompt and efficient service.

    M P – Personal Injury
  • Thank you for all your endeavours. I really appreciate your help and understanding at what was a difficult time.

    N B – Family Client
  • Making a will at times can be a very difficult process, this is made much easier with the help and advice of Poole Alcock Solicitors, thank you.

    Mr Peter James Edwards
  • Making a will can be a complicated and stressful experience, but not in my experience, if the Poole Alcock team does it for you. The complexities of my wishes were patiently unravelled and interpreted and the whole process was completed speedily and efficiently. Such a relief!

    Winifred Woodward
  • The RPC Hotels Group of hotels has just carried out a multi-million pound refinance with Allied Irish Bank. The legal work was extremely detailed and included aspects requiring an expertise in corporate finance and real estate. It was carried out on behalf of the Hotel Group by Poole Alcock (Solicitors), Head Office at Nantwich, Cheshire.

    I was absolutely delighted at the way the team at PA carried out the task for us. They displayed great diligence, expertise, empathy, etc and at a very competitive cost. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to any business needing legal representation.

    Robert Parker (Chair), RPC Hotels
  • I employed Poole Alcock’s services when I was made redundant and needed help with my settlement agreement. In addition to being sensitive to my predicament, they were thorough going through each clause and its implications. They were prompt in responding to all my mails, and in concluding the matter with my former employed. I cannot recommend highly enough.

  • Excellent advice, friendly, yet professional approach to my legal matter – I highly recommend Jamie and his team.

  • I would just like to say thank you for the support that you have provided during the difficult process that [we’ve] been through. You have provided excellent support and your professional advice has been exemplary and always timely.

    David Johnson – Litigation Client
  • Excellent in every way

    Mr D B and Mrs B B
  • I was very impressed with the professional and timely services provided by Tania and Poole Alcock in Congleton. I had regular updates and was fully appraised of the property purchase proceeding throughout. Communication is key when buying a property, Tania made the process as smooth and hassle free as it could be. Very highly recommended.

  • At a time when solicitors are under such pressures dealing with the needs of their clients, Nicola and her team went above and beyond at every turn. Thank you!

    Mr T Pierce and Miss K Goulborun
  • 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!

    Ram Moetamedi – Managing Director, UK IT Networks
  • 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.

    Commercial Client
  • We have found the team at Poole Alcock in Congleton to be competent, courteous and professional. The team led by Tania Zompi were able to carry a property sale through to completion despite lockdown conditions.

    N A W and I W J – Conveyancing Clients
  • We first discovered Eve Lakin when she gave a talk to the South Cheshire Chamber of Commerce explaining GDPR regulations. As a small but growing film production business, meeting GDPR requirements felt incredibly daunting. However, Eve’s clear understanding of the complex legislation, patience in exploring our specific requirements, and constant support when required has proved invaluable. Her dedication and willingness to listen to our questions and queries has not only led to the creation of robust policies and procedures that meet our exacting business needs, but has helped build our own confidence in understanding GDPR legislation. I would have no hesitation in recommending Eve at Poole Alcock to any business and we hope to continue to work with her in the future.

  • 5 Star service. I would highly reccommend Anna Burns.

    Mr H – Mesothelioma Client
  • Excellent service, difficult to suggest anyway of improving it!

  • I am honoured to recommend Sarah-Jane who was representing one of the parties in a mediation in which I was the mediator. She is an excellent litigator who pays attention to detail. Aside from her professionalism which I think is superb, I am particularly impressed by her ability to efficiently prepare all the necessary paperwork in litigation from bundles and correspondence through to briefs.

    Sarah-Jane is a force to be reckoned with and I would far rather have her representing me than an opponent. She has a wonderful personable style in her dealings with her clients and I have observed her give clear, reasoned advice. Sarah-Jane does this calmly and efficiently. She does not waste time or the Client’s money and those are attributes that I admire. I recommend this lady to anyone contemplating litigation. If a litigant has a case worth fighting, Sarah-Jane will do a superb job.

    Paul Rose, Mediator
  • You have provided an excellent service on both our sale and purchase and I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending you and your team.

    Michelle Murray

    SD – Family Client

Zoom appointment was on time and Chris, demonstrated sympathy and empathy without be patronising, which enabled me to build trust. Meeting notes were promptly written and emailed to me. The process and communication with my company was done professionally and exchange of settlement was done within the 48 hours as promised. Excellent service will definitely use again if needed. Thank you Kellie and Chris.

    G F
  • We were recommended to use Poole Alcock and in particular, Monisha by our neighbours, who found her to be very approachable.
    Throughout our relationship, from the initial meeting through to completion, the communications were always first class and easily understood. Monisha was knowledgeable in the subject we approached her with and was quickly able to conclude the documentation and business we had.
    I would not hesitate to recommend Poole Alcock, and Monisha herself, if asked.

We recommend you to everyone who asks!

    J B – Family Client
  • 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.

    Janet Clarke
  • I thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping me, supporting me, moreover believing in me and helping me to see that I am worthy of being so happy in myself and achieving my goals.

    Everybody has difficult times and most worse than me but you helped me get through mine and made me believe I could come out the other side and live a wonderfully happy life.

    We will be eternally grateful to you.


  • This is a brief note to thank you and Julia for all your help generally.  We have been very impressed with your efficiency and helpful response throughout.  It may well be that we will be looking to sell in the not too distant future, and if that proves to be the case we will definitely be coming back to Poole Alcock to act for us in the sale.

    Mrs Mathers
  • My sincere thanks to Lisa Ball who recently acted on my behalf in relation to child care arrangements. This was a very complex case involving the care and support for my disabled son and myself as the primary carer for my child.

    Lisa was extremely supportive and professional and I trusted her implicitly. After a fraught 7 years of difficulties Lisa, in my opinion, was the only person who understood the situation and resolved the issues which were present.

    Her professionalism and negotiation skills with the other parties was outstanding and she took the lead when needed and appropriately.

    My son and I are now able to move forward knowing we are protected and free to experience the peace and happiness we deserve.

    Thank you so much Lisa for all that you did for us.

  • We required a local solicitor to assist us in developing a business opportunity for the Highfields Academy.

    After seeking input from several Solicitors we awarded our contract to Poole Alcock , we found them extremely easy to deal with, good value for money, professional and always ready to provide good quality advice .

    We also found Luke, Jonathan and Nichola always on hand which was extremely valuable to us since we had to move very quickly.

Wouldn’t dream of using anyone else.

Anna met my late father on two occasions and dad was very impressed by her professionalism and friendly nature and it took a lot to impress dad!

    Thank you Anna for everything you did for us!

    Mr S Gidman
  • I have had to use your services at a very difficult time and having been a solicitor I understand the pressure you work under.

    Mr J D and Mrs C D
  • We instructed Adam Pavey from Poole Alcock to assist with some HR support.  We were recommended Adam from a trusted business associate who spoke very highly of him.  And he didn’t disappoint!  The main thing is that Adam spoke my language, no difficult legal jargon that I couldn’t understand.  He soon understood our need and gave simple yet very effective advice.  The hard part of dealing with legal issues is trying to be prepared for every eventuality and Adam helped us through this thinking of possible outcomes and hurdles along the way.  The great thing is that he was there when we needed him, advised and gave us the right process and instruction to move forward.  If you are considering using Poole Alcock, don’t hesitate, let them help you, you will be glad you did!

    Mrs P – Wills and Probate Client
  • Since my case completed, I never had the chance to thank you for everything you did for me. You honestly have no idea how much it meant at really one of the most difficult times in my life, and certainly in my career.

    From the moment I came in to see you, I felt a weight had been lifted and your experience, professionalism and knowledge guided and assisted me to achieving a good outcome. I truly can’t thank you and the team enough for your support and guidance throughout the process I have been through.


  • Verity understood our requirements very well and offered us solutions in a practical, efficient way. Excellent communication throughout the process.

    T C and E C
  • 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.

  • Thank you for putting us at ease, and always being there for us. A special thank you to Selina and your lovely receptionists!

    Mr G T

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.

  • 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.

  • 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

    Yours sincerely

    R. Fox
  • We as a family wish to thank Gill for all her hard work in the completion of the property and also for keeping us well informed of developments.

  • 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.

    Mr N
  • 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.

    Thanks again!

    Miss Alison Kershaw – Contracts Manager, Owl Projects
  • As with our house sale, excellent service in respect of our Wills.

    Mr D, Cheshire
  • 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.

    Highly recommend.

    Cate Walter

    After that it went smoothly  and quickly to completion.

    Your system that allows progress to be checked  regularly showing green circle  was I thought brilliant.

    I have  used the services of local solicitors in the past and been dissatisfied  so I was pleased to choose Poole Alcock LLP  solicitors as I rate you very highly compared to others. I am so pleased to have chosen you . Victoria and  conveyance team were excellent. Your value for money was totally acceptable to me

    At the end The transaction of money was very  efficient

  • You have been fantastic and completely on the ball with everything

    F. Warwick
  • Whilst being a client at Poole Alcock Solicitors Helen Stoller and Chloe Burgis, who work within the family department, have been a massive help and made me feel reassured through my difficult time and were always happy to help me. I would highly recommend using their services as they are very professional and friendly.

    Ms CW
  • A very smooth and professional job very pleased with the service.

    Mr and Mrs Gibson
  • We received a very professional and friendly service from Danielle who explained all our options clearly to us.

  • Thanks for your assistance with our property sale and purchase over the past few months. The quality of service and thoroughness of advice and guidance was excellent.

    We are really pleased with the service we received from you and would definitely recommend you both.

    D & R O
  • I have purchased several properties using the services of Poole Alcock and am thoroughly happy with the professionalism and great communication during the period of transaction. Buying a house is always a little stressful but the team at Poole Alcock take away the worries and answer any questions rapidly and efficiently.

    Isabella Ailefroide
  • 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.

    St Luke’s Hospice
  • Poole Alcock are exactly what I require in a law firm.  I have dealt with Luke and James for my business and personal issues and each time they provide diligent, efficient and professional services.  They are always at hand to offer advice/their services, which enables me to focus my time on my business.  I highly recommend their services to others that are seeking a professional, approachable law firm.

    Nick Lewis – Chemsol
  • Very impressed with your service, from start to finish. Would certainly recommend.

    D & A E
  • The process from beginning to end was professional and well explained throughout. We felt confident to proceed with the process following Andrew’s advice. Thank you.

    J A and M A
  • Excellent communication and response times, felt relieved at the efficiency and friendliness of everyone I spoke to. Jamie and Kellie were fantastic and I am so grateful for the excellent service I received

    Angelo Darmanin
  • I have used Poole Alcock over the years and I have always been very happy with them and will use them again. I recommend Claire Ellis to anyone.

    Kim Hillyard
  • After over 25 years using my previous law firm, in 2013 I made the decision to move my business to Poole Alcock.  Now, with five years of dealing with the team there, mainly on areas of commercial law but also from time to time on personal matters I have found the service both excellent and friendly. Whilst they only have 125 years experience, compared to Johnson’s 191 they seem to be progressing very nicely and I would have no hesitation in recommending them!

    John McMillan, Managing Director, Johnsons of Nantwich
  • 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.

  • Thank you for all you efforts this year… your support has been exceptional.

    Kath and James Gibb
  • The service given was excellent. Every phone call answered swiftly and with clarity. No problems whatsoever. Many thanks to James and his team!

    Mrs L M
  • They’re always there when I need them

    Andrew Ryland, General Manager – Homestyle
  • The sale of the house was dealt with in a very swift and professional manner with regular updates by Gill. Thank you for everything!

    Faisal Ahmed
  • Tim, the man, the myth, the legend.

    Mr Jason Purcell
  • Claire was very pleasant and put us at ease from the offset. We are very satisfied with the service that we received.

    Mr and Mrs B
  • 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.


    Linda Davis, Headteacher, Wistaston Green Primary & Nursery School (Now Wistaston Green Academy)
  • Making a Will and arranging Lasting Power of Attorney could have been a daunting experience. However, everything was explained with clear detail and understanding of our age group. Thank you Andy very much.

    Brian McGovern and Christine Dorothy McGovern
  • I just wanted to say a big thank you for all the help you have given me during my mesothelioma claim which has been settled today.

    The service I have received has been first class from day one.

    Sydney Hulse
  • I just wanted to say thank you. It has been a very long 2 years off my life and your help, understanding and counselling has been invaluable.

    Monies transferred, our new house should complete end of this month and I can truly start my new life.

    Thank you and thank your team too.  I shall always recommend your practice highly.

    Mr J L
  • I can’t thank you enough. It has been hard. Not sure I would have stayed as sane as I am if it weren’t for your help and advice! Thank you so much.

    K S – Family 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 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.

  • It really does seem such a long time ago, that I first came to see you….its been such a long road!

    Thank you just doesn’t seem enough for everything you have done and for the way you have treated me.

    I thank you for always believing in me and for the empathic professional way that that you have dealt with everything. I always felt safe and had confidence in that everything you did was in my best interests.

    It was like sharing all my worries except that for me, I didn’t have half the share because you took more than that guiding me through this whole process and for that I will be eternally grateful. Without a doubt I would recommend anyone in a similar position to come to you.

  • I have used Poole Alcock’s Commercial team and in particular Luke Pritchard on a couple of occasions over the last year and quite frankly I feel lucky to have found him and to have him at the end of the phone. I came in contact with Luke through networking with Poole Alcock as a firm, I needed their services when I was looking to buy the business I now own and had a meeting with Luke and was instantly impressed…….he was detailed (yet clear), easy to talk with, polite and obviously knowledgeable.

    I walked out of the first meeting and thought this will be easy! One of the aspects I found so refreshing with Luke was the speed of his responses, he was quick to come back to me – even if that was “I’m off to a meeting, I will ring at X time”, I always knew where I stood with him and was never chasing him for information.

    The service was brilliant, the purchase went through smoothly and since having the business we have been back for more assistance with other matters……I believe a relationship has been formed and that Luke will be the company’s lawyer for as long as I sit in the MD role. I would happily recommend Luke and Poole Alcock!

    Lucy Ratcliffe – Director, Sign Master Solutions
  • 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.

    Maria Bradbury – Stepping Stones
  • Extremely satisfied and all people I spoke to were lovely and very approachable. I would highly recommend you.

    C R & R R
  • A comprehensive, professional, yet empathetic and personal service. I couldn’t have asked for more!

    P Y – Wills and Probate Client
  • We have recently worked with Monisha on a HS2 property home owners payment scheme submission. From start to finish the process was seamless, friendly and without fuss – couldn’t recommend highly enough!

    Daniel and Emily Payne
  • I would like to take this opportunity to express my gratitude for all your help and support, and providing such an excellent service. You made such an emotive experience more bareable.

    As you dealt with all the paperwork required for court, this relieved a large amount of stress and anxiety. Your updates and speed of replies was excellent, and were always clear and informative.

    I was aware the respondent was not always the easiest of people to liaise with, however you continued to deal with the situation in a professional and sensitive manner.

    If in the future I require legal support, I would not hesitate to contact you or Poole Alcock for advice and representation.

    SH – Family Client
  • James Williams and his team have provided excellent service throughout our house salke and purchase of our new property. Very professional and great attention top detail. We would highly recommend to anybody looking for a hassle free move!


    J D and A D
  • At Chatwins we believe in the adage “Your people are its most important asset” and consequently Human Resource Management has become increasingly important to our success.

    After several years of HR telephone support from a large provider, we decided to move Poole Alcock as we would be working with a local company who would better understand our business and therefore provide a better support.

    Since moving, we have been most impressed with the day-to-day support we have received. As the support is direct from a law firm, then we did expect a high level of expertise, and they have certainly delivered in this aspect.

    What has pleased us most is that now face to face meeting, with one point of contact, are the norm. Rather than things being dealt with over the phone, by sometimes different people, the one to one relationship with Poole Alcock means matters get resolved more quickly. In fact they feel part of our business rather than an outsourced agency, and one which we are delighted to recommend.

    Edward Chatwin, Chairman, Arthur Chatwin Limited
  • Excellent Support!

    Thank you

    Mr D R
  • I would highly recommend Poole Alcock Solicitors and their very friendly staff. From the very first meeting I was made to feel at ease, with patience and understanding at a very emotional and tricky time. Throughout the process, everything was explained at each stage and there was always a transparency to costs. Always conducted with a kind, caring, yet professional manner and went above and beyond to help when I needed it the most.  Brilliant service, “thank god for Helen Stoller!”

    MW, Cheshire
  • Tim’s representation was professional, knowledgeable and robust. Excellent service all round!

    Criminal Defence Client
  • I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for what you have done for me….you don’t just care about the job, you care as a person….it made me feel safe knowing you were the one dealing with my case.

    I can’t thank you enough for everything you have done.

  • Andrew Roberts was highly professional, clear and precise throughout. He made it easy to understand and I’d have no hesitation in highly recommending Poole Alcock Solicitors.

    David McGregor
  • 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.

    R H and M H
  • We recently bought a house on Taylor Wimpey and our solicitor was Kate Heath who expertises in new builds. Kate dealt with us in a professional manner, communication was second to none, great customer service and we felt comfortable and felt at ease whilst both our sale and purchase were going through. We feel the speed of the whole process was fast, considering we were selling and buying. Kate worked well with Taylor Wimpey to ensure we were in the house as planned before Christmas. We also used help to buy which was a smooth process, everything was dealt with ease by Kate and I would 100% recommend Poole Alcock to use when buying or selling a house. Everyone is so friendly, this is the second time I’ve bought a house with them now and each time was a breeze. Thank you Kate and team!
