This {evicting a tenant} was an extremely stressful time for me given my lack of understanding of the law and what I was expected to do. Liam {Kreibich} explained the processes and timings to me in plain English, written and spoken. Liam’s quick responses to emails and telephone messages were exceptional.

Liam did everything, with almost no time or effort from me! The best part was that I could completely trust him to represent me professionally to other organisations.

I am very thankful that I chose Smith Partnership and have used their services again since. Again, I got an impeccable service from Marissa Layton on another matter.100% satisfied with services received.

I engaged the services of Smith Partnership to help me with an exit from my employment which had been instigated by my employer whilst I was on maternity leave and trying to return on a flexible working basis.  My case was handled by James Johnson who I found to be meticulous, articulate and thoroughly knowledgeable throughout.  James dealt with my case with care and understanding, doing his best to minimise any costs for myself whilst being fully transparent regarding fees.  I found James to be extremely reliable, honest and client focused.  My case was dealt with very quickly and reached a satisfactory conclusion to what was a very stressful time.  I would not hesitate to either use Smith Partnership again and I highly recommend them, as I cannot imagine any other practice dealing with my case as well as they did.

Deepa Tanna is a young and aspiring solicitor from the stables of Smith Partnership firm. Deepa’s speciality is in the family and children’s law. Deepa Tanna is very dedicated and well-rehearsed in her field of expertise. I found Deepa very understanding and supportive when I needed her to represent me.

I was very pleased with the outcome in the family courts. This was only possible with Deepa’s knowledge, skills and seeking all possible support to strengthen my case. Deepa really goes out of her way and thinks outside the box to seek a positive outcome for her client. This is Deepa's strong attribute which converts into a very good success rate in her cases.

I would use Deepa again and would recommend strongly to my friends and colleagues.    

Suresh Gadher

Thank you Andy Hambleton for the wonderful job and for all your support given to solve this issue.

T. Curtatone

Smith Partnership delivered a very helpful and professional service. Their staff made me feel at ease from the beginning and were always willing to go the extra mile. I wouldn’t hesitate recommending Smith Partnership to anyone in need of professional help and advice.

Matthew Booth

I recently had to navigate the complex world of getting divorced and the daunting and quite frightening task that was ahead of me. I was recommended your name {Deepa Tanna} by someone whom I value very highly and thought I would investigate. I am lucky enough to be surrounded by many local solicitors and it seemed sensible to choose one of those to make things easier for myself, but your recommendation was so high and this was so important to me to get right, that I decided to trust in the positive feedback I was receiving and put my trust in you.

It was simply the best thing I have ever done and I cannot thank you enough for all your expertise, professionalism and kindness. Your knowledge and the way you helped me to navigate, what felt like an absolute legal minefield, was seamless and so easy and straightforward. I found the process hard and stressful but you made it all so easy for me and so simple and held my hand all the way through, guiding me as to what was the right thing to do. I honestly would not have been able to get through this process without you by my side. You made complex words, processes and the law very accessible to me and explained things so clearly that I was able to get things sorted in a really efficient way and with minimal stress. It also sped up the process so much for me as you made things so clear that I knew what I needed to do. You gave a service level beyond my expectation and I am so thankful I trusted in the feedback I had heard and went with you. I will never use or trust another solicitor other than you for all my requirements from now on and have also recommended you to my family, who will also use you from now on as well.

You made a very difficult time in my life much more bearable, thanks to not only your expertise and wisdom but to your nature, kindness and professional manner. You did everything you said you would do and so much more, always on time and to an exceptional standard. I always knew exactly what to do and what to expect and the level of care and service I received was truly exceptional. I could not have asked for any more and will be eternally grateful to you for helping guide me through the most painful time with such ease. I know I also rely on you still now and will call you when there is something I still need to check on and you are always there to help me.

Thank you seems nowhere near enough for receiving the best service I could have ever dreamed of, but I hope you know how much you have helped me and my family and how truly thankful I am that I found you and for all your professional service and care. Even today I would be so lost without you. Thank you so much for making the world of difference to me.

Miss VO

A huge thank you for representing me in my claim for accident compensation, nothing was too much trouble for you {Simon Rowley} and your team, and after three years you were successful for me.  Your secretary, Ann, was very helpful and had such a very calming and caring manner whenever I spoke to her on the phone, so a huge thank you to her.  The reception staff in your Derby office were also very nice to me on the two visits I had.  My most sincere thanks to you all and I will recommend you to anyone who needs a solicitor.

Sharon Davies has acted for Scargill Mann & Co in debt recovery since 1995.  Throughout our many dealings Sharon’s advice has always been very positive and we have found her knowledge of debt recovery matters to be exceptional!  Sharon responds well to our requirements and like ourselves is reluctant to give up on a bad debt, winning many cases where other solicitors may have walked away.  I can highly recommend her.

Dean Mann, Scargill Mann & Co

James Johnson at Smith Partnership has looked after Office Care’s HR support for over three years now. James offers sound advice, in an easy to understand way, even in the most complex of scenarios. His advice allows us to make an informed and balanced decision that is best for our business.

Martin Booth, Director, Office Care Limited

My experience of using James Johnson’s services at Smith Partnership has been extremely positive and I benefited from and valued his expertise from the outset. James and his team are very welcoming and James’ advice was very honest, clear and concise which helped me consider all the options. Most importantly, his personal integrity and commitment to providing a professional service is abundantly evident in the consistent manner he treated me. It is refreshing to see a law firm that puts the client first and going the extra mile in terms of sincere intent to the best they can and not just for commercial reasons. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend James Johnson or Smith Partnership.

Sharon Poulson MCIPD, Group HR Manager – TTG Global Group Limited

I had never been in trouble before and facing a serious allegation, I was thankful that Joanne [Twigg] was working on my case. She and Adrian were first class. Joanne took her time to explain everything to me - the law, the procedure, even down to what I should wear. She was extremely patient and clearly cares about her clients. I ended up getting a fantastic result and never doubted that I had a great team on my side throughout. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Joanne to anyone. Keep up the good work.

Mr Timms

I've used Adrian on a number of occasions with a 100% success rate, I no longer consider Adrian as my solicitor but more as a friend.

Adrian has spared me wasted time on many occasions, I personally would recommend him at the highest level. Straight talking and one of us. 

Mr M Deeming

I have often needed legal assistance and I’ve always used Adrian Pearce. He has always given me very good legal advice and represented me on several occasions. Adrian has always been easy to get hold of day or night and always follows up after the event to check everything is OK. I always pass his number on to my friends and would recommend his services to anyone.

Mr D Ledwidge, Director, Vaze Security Ltd.

Adrian Pearce has represented me, my family and friends for the last 10 years. Genuine and reliable chap that has provided an excellent service along with good advice. I would not hesitate to recommend Adrian and his team in the future.

Mandeep Mann

I needed legal representation at crown court. After a friend’s recommendation, I approached Adrian Pearce. This was a very worrying and stressful period in my life, I was extremely thankful and appreciative of the successful outcome.

From my very first contact with Adrian Pearce he always kept me informed and treated me in a very professional but also friendly way, nothing was ever too much trouble.

I would highly recommend Adrian Pearce to anyone who requires legal representation.

Mr A Reuter

When I first learnt that Adrian was working with someone new, I was worried because he's looked after me for years and I trust him without question. He introduced me to Jo and within a short space of time it was obvious why they work so well together. They both care. They both fight for their clients and they are very good at what they do. If you are wondering who to instruct as your solicitor, make sure you have Jo and Adrian in your corner. They won’t let you down. I recommend them to everyone.

Mr Z Clark

Smith Partnership have acted for our club on a number of matters with particular strengths in both Commercial and Employment issues. I consider the firm real partners of the club rather than mere service providers. They always strive to over-deliver and their customer focus is highly impressive. 

Ben Robinson, Burton Albion Chairman

As much as anything it is the personal service that Smith Partnership provides that makes the difference. You deal with a person and not some androgynous (disembodied) voice at the end of the phone. They make the effort to understandyour business needs.

The reasoning behind our choice to switch our legal requirements to Smith Partnership was further endorsed by our introduction to Ruth Ball. Ruth has been a major asset at a time when our rapidly growing company needs a reassuring and strong approach in challenging situations.

Darren Adams, Bridgefast Finance Limited

As Credit Manager for Lyreco UK Limited, I am very happy indeed to provide a reference for The Smith Partnership and the services they have been providing us for nearly ten years now.

Being the Credit Manager for a business as large as Lycero, one can envisage the regularity with which I have alternative services proposed to me. All promising better service, better rates, better results, but none have succeeded as I feel we have the best provider of third-party legal representation for our business.

The Smith Partnership, through our long commercial relationship has grown to know our business and our industry very well. They have a unique responsiveness to the way we work and to how we have changed our procedures and processes along the way as our business has grown.

Nick Carey, Credit Manager of Lycero UK Limited
