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.
Clear concise advice
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.
Superb once again.
Superb once again. Goughs provides outstanding service... professional in getting the job done and conducted with grace and care. Thank you Goughs!
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.
Made first-time buying a (relatively) simple process!
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.
My first port of call for all legal services
I have found Goughs Solicitors in Chippenham & Trowbridge to be fast and very efficient in their services to me, they understand your instruction and get on with it! They are very easy to talk to, which is equally very important to me. They are my first port of call for all legal services.
I have used Goughs solicitors for conveyancing on more than one occasion. I found them to be extremely efficient and professional and wouldn't hesitate in recommending them.
Diligent and trustworthy company
I have dealt with Goughs on a professional level for over 10 years. During that time I have always found them to be a diligent and trustworthy company, always willing to help when I contact them. During the last 5 years in particular, I have had close contact with Phillip Bolton, Sophie Laird, Luchia Hirst and Nadine Cook. I can honestly say these four in particular are truly professional, diligent and hard working people. As a result of their ongoing professionalism and friendly manner, I would always feel happy to recommend them to any of my clients as I feel this is also a reflection on me and the service I provide to my clients. I will only be comfortable recommending people if I truly feel they provide a certain level of service and I can happily say Philip, Sophie, Luchia and Nadine do.
Very human, understanding, trustworthy, feeling of honesty.
