  • I would recommend this business

From the moment I met with David Coward I felt at ease and knew that he was the right solicitor to help me with my issue. He gave sound advice and carried out work on my behalf for approximately one year. Always genuine and able to help me save costs where possible. I consider myself incredibly lucky to have had him supporting me. Would not hesitate to use Sampson Coward again should the need arise.

Customer Testimonials

Fantastic conveyancing services. Prompt replies.

A superb solicitors, friendly helpful and knowledgeable staff in all parts of the organisation. I had a very challenging case, and was quite challenging as a client, and I found their consistent, calm and intelligent approach very welcome as the matter moved along. I had never used them before, but quickly built up a trust in their ability and approach that will certainly have me using them again. Decent people, that know their stuff!

Friendly, approachable, and genuinely caring. It was a small issue but they dealt with it very well. They also make a great cup of tea, which is always appreciated if it is a stressful matter. I would use them again.
