Testimonials from clients

My greatest achievement

My greatest achievements are walking the Yorkshire Three Peak Challenge, building our own house, and moving in just in time to start a family; my two ever-fascinating sons!

By receiving excellent client feedback, I have once again been ranked as a ‘Key Lawyer’ by the prestigious Legal 500 2023 legal directory.

My secretary is Becci Walsh who ensures that she knows everything there is to know about all of my matters. I do not work a Friday but am always confident that my clients are in the safest of hands when speaking with Becci. Please feel free to contact Becci via becciwalsh@goughs.co.uk

“Becci communicated all of the information to us efficiently and promptly.”

What I like about working for Goughs

The ethos of the firm; we all work together, help each other and support everyone to reach their goals. The biscuits are quite good too!
