About us

We started up in 1973. We were the first firm in Exeter, Devon to open outside the city centre where law firms normally congregate. Our policy then as now is to avoid the stuffy traditional image of the lawyer and adopt a friendly accessible style.

In our view the buck stops with us. We do not delegate. We do not employ large numbers of non-qualified staff. We are a small team of highly qualified professionals who specialise in their chosen areas of expertise.

We think you want a quality personal service but at the right price. Before we start working on your case we will agree with you:

  • exactly what needs to be done
  • by whom
  • the fee or how it is calculated. 

We will also explore whether you are eligible for legal aid; we are Quality Mark specialists in family law, personal injury and housing under legal aid franchises from the Legal Aid Agency.

We are accredited with the Lexcel Quality Mark by the Law Society. This shows that we meet high standards in the way the firm is managed. We are checked each year to ensure we are continuing to work to those standards of excellence.

If you think you may want us to act for you why not contact us for an initial appraisal at no cost.
