Customer Testimonials

after a long time and hard battle with the local authorities,we contacted KSS,he continued the fight for us,with his expertise he was able to turn the verdict around,which enabled us to get our planning sorted and agreed.Thankyou Nicholas...


Working with the highly efficient and capable team of Nicholas and Elizabeth was very rewarding. They represented my family, provided excellent advice and were clear and quick in their work. When events outside their control caused problems, they worked tirelessly to resolve them.

The critical criterion for selecting a lawyer is "will they win?" In our case they did. We cannot recommend them enough for property matters.


Kingsley Smith have just produced a contract for my small business. Their service was efficient, friendly, thorough and reasonably priced. I have not had the greatest experience with some other solicitors in the past but Chris was a pleasure to deal with and provided a very flexible and personal approach. I would highly recommend.


Prior to contacting Kingsley-Smith, we spent a good few months going back and forth with the planning department unsuccessfully.

Elizabeth and Nicholas both took the time to understand our particular situation and what we were trying to achieve. They then patiently explained to us what our options were so that we could make an informed decision on the best way forward.

I am happy to say that with a single correspondence from Kingsley-Smith, the application was approved and we are now getting our project underway.

I would recommend the services of Kingsley-Smith to others, not just because of our successful outcome, but because of the excellent customer service we received which helped us to understand the process and what our options were.

Thank you for your time, care and attention.
