What our clients say about us

Digmore Sid

I engaged the services of Goughs Solicitors in Trowbridge, in particular Ailie Peacock, to act on my behalf for the sale of my house. Ailie was always clear with her advice, acted in a timely manor and answered any questions I had almost immediately. She was very proactive in dealing with the other parties involved in a slightly convoluted chain.

Ailie also managed a very late request from our buyers with calm efficiency and the utmost professionalism. The end result was a smooth sale and completion, with remarkably little stress on our part. I would not hesitate from using them again.

Margaret Wilson

Quick response to e-mails or phone calls. Will certainly use again in the near future. Clear concise advice patiently given!

Mr Ian Liddle

Excellent service as usual.

Alan

Superb once again. Goughs provides outstanding service… professional in getting the job done and conducted with grace and care. Thank you Goughs!

Ashley Stone

The solicitor I dealt with at Goughs, Rhianna Cole, was an absolute star, I cannot fault her in any way at all. She made everything in the situation I was in so easy to understand, and she guided me through an extremely stressful time, with extreme professionalism, yet a very personal and sensitive touch. Can’t big them up enough.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Matt Saunders

Sophie was very attentive and responsive and understood the need to act quickly in regard to our purchase process. She was diligent with the paperwork and was very easy to talk to and clear at explaining what was required in terms of action from our side and from the seller.
