Matthew Dunford supported me in buying my first house. I started this transaction at the beginning of COVID 19 lockdown. Whilst it probably wasn’t the best time to be buying a house, the service from the solicitors did not appear to be impacted by this at all. Emails were responded to in a speedy manner, there were no delays in the process and I was kept updated throughout. I haven’t had to chase them for anything, as everything was completed in a good time frame. I have recommended them to friends and would definitely use them again.

Ms K – Wiltshire

First-class effort from Clare and Ella with our house sale. They have worked relentlessly to get the house sale over the line, especially during COVID. I would highly recommend.

Mr L – Wiltshire

I would highly recommend the Shaftesbury branch of Farnfields to anyone. They achieve the perfect balance of high quality yet personal service. We have used them for wills and LPAs amongst other things and they are professional and efficient. Even during the COVID 19 outbreak, messages were quickly relayed and a flexible and professional service was maintained. Susan even came to an appointment in our garden for convenience and safety which was much appreciated.

Mrs C – Shaftesbury

I have used Farnfields on a number of occasions, and always found staff to be professional, helpful and swift in acting on issues. I have used the Warminster branch to act on purchasing a property, following the sale of my previous house. When my initial conveyancer Ella-Rose, who was great, was furloughed in March, Sarah Clarke was assigned to me and I really enjoyed working with her. She has been very attentive to my needs, quick to reply to any questions and very persistent with my vendors and their solicitor. It wasn’t an easy journey, but I can honestly say that Sarah made it a whole lot more fun! I would absolutely recommend the practice – you do pay slightly more than some other solicitors firms locally but it’s definitely worth it. Thank you!

Ms S – Wiltshire

From my experience it would be difficult for Farnfields to improve their high standards. Over the years they have given me the most efficient professional advice and service.  Far above what could be expected, in respect of the legal work completed for me.  The care and courtesy shown by all staff, is beyond compare and greatly appreciated.

Mrs T – Shaftesbury

The moment you walk into the reception area, you are welcomed with a smile. The atmosphere exudes both confidence and confidentiality. Efficiency combined with informality is a clear demonstration that here is a team that knows what it is doing in every field. When you leave, you know that whatever it is that needs doing, whether straightforward or complex, will be done speedily – and you will be kept informed at every step. Simply the best indeed, far better than all the rest….

Mr J – Gillingham

Farnfields Solicitors represented me recently on the acquisition of a commercial property, I have been property developing for several years on a national basis, however this was my first in the Dorset area. I would honestly say that the service was first class from initial introduction to completion and would have absolutely no hesitation on recommending them to anyone that wants a ‘hands-on’ ‘ no-nonsense service’.

Mr O’D – Shaftesbury

During the two day mediation, with the help of Sarah, the Mediator, my Husband and I discussed the best way to end our marriage as amicably and cost effective as possible. Sarah was a great help to keep the meeting on track and focus on the issues at hand.

Ms B – Yeovil

What a breath of fresh air! Completely different to the negative experience we had encountered previously. Sarah Jones took the time to listen to us both without bias. Although as parents we couldn’t agree on everything, with Sarah’s help we accepted the fact that there was no perfect scenario in a break up involving kids. Compromise is needed, in contrast to the negatives a court case brings, we were encouraged to think about the positives each of us had to offer our child and we worked together to come to an arrangement that best suited all of us.

Mr S – Somerton

Cannot rate Farnfields solicitors high enough. Both Sarah Butler and Samantha Cook have professionally and compassionately guided me through the legal process of my recent divorce and house conveyancing. They were recommended to me by a close friend and I would have no hesitation in recommending Farnfields myself.

Mrs D – Dorset
