It is great to have the support of Stephen and his firm. I have recommended family and friends to him and will continue to do so."

"I was fortunate to meet Matthew Edwards in 2008 when my father was seriously ill. My father required a solicitor to act for him re: matters relating to his Will and Estate. Matthew was kind enough to arrange a home visit. Not only did Matthew provide an excellent legal service, where his meticulous attention to detail was very much appreciated, but he showed an extraordinary level of care and understanding to his elderly client. The reassurance and support that he gave my father was well and truly above the call of duty. After my father's death Matthew was yet again instrumental in helping me in my new role as Executor of my father's will. He guided me through the legal processes and showed great patience and understanding in explaining legal processes that I was not familiar with. I would thoroughly recommend his work and his charming personality."
Mrs L Peddie, Thorpe Bay

Mrs B Stevens, Hornchurch

Mrs X, Romford

Mr R Morgan, Basildon
"We turned to Pinney Talfourd when faced with a difficult situation dealing with our son's school where the school had treated us unfairly in a complaint. Kerry Hull was nothing short of fantastic. She was efficient, calming, and added the gravitas we needed to get the situation resolved satisfactorily. We felt she understood our issue perfectly and fought our corner against those thought to be unassailable. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Ms. Hull again, and certainly, when we encountered another legal matter recently, the first person we consulted was Kerry Hull."
Mr & Mrs Morton
"Extremely impressed by the services provided by Kerry Hull. Very efficient and most helpful. My "trauma" was over sooner, rather than later, thanks to her good work. Well done."
Mr A Richards, Hornchurch
"I received a very high quality of service and excellent advice which helped me get through an extremely difficult situation. I would recommend Pinney Talfourd's services and in particular Catherine Loadman who proved to be very knowledgeable in family matters. Helpful and efficient."
Mr R Perkin, Brentwood
"The past 17 months has been the most stressful time of my life, but the support, guidance and care I have received from Sarah Tsindides and Catherine Loadman has been exceptional. They have remained totally professional and 'on the ball' at all times and we have finally received a justified result. I cannot thank Sarah and Catherine enough."
Mrs W Hornchurch
"I would like to say a big thank you for all your help and support in the past year. Your advice and support helped me get through some hard emotional times."

"An excellent service from start to finish. Thank you."
Mr T Bailes, Basildon
"Keeley's all round subject knowledge and ability to hit some very tight deadlines has given me the edge when trying to secure a property or land deal. This is not the first time I have engaged Keeley on a scheme and without doubt it will not be the last!"

Ms Hart, Upminster
"Thank you very much for the time, attention and consideration you showed. I am aware that you went over and above the call of duty and it makes a great difference going forward to know that I've been given such excellent advice by someone who'll take such time and trouble. I'll need further advice down the line and I hope that it will come from you."
Mr A, East London
"Very professional service. Very empathetic staff. Many thanks."
Mrs X, Upminster
"I have to say Katie's work has been excellent. Perhaps I should just quote from our estate agent, which I think thoroughly encapsulates her work. The context was one of estate agent frustration I'm sure but it was music to my ears 'Your solicitor.....she's incredibly thorough'. Not only has she been thorough but she has been pleasant and efficient to deal with and at no point have I felt anxious about her dealing with what is usually a stressful procedure. She is a credit to your business and I would certainly recommend her to others and will no doubt in the future request her assistance with further conveyancing work."
Mr K, London
"I can't thank you enough for all the patience, diligence and forward thinking you exhibited over my purchase. I have no doubt that your rigour in the last few weeks will stand me in good stead over the coming years."
Ms C Fowler, London
"I have personally moved a few times over the years and have dealt with quite a few solicitors, none of which could hold a candle to Katie. It was refreshing to deal with someone so professional in her job and genuinely pleasant. I am sure this is not the first time you have received praise from a customer about Katie but nonetheless, a 'pat on the back' from her boss wouldn't go a miss. She is a true asset to your company and thus I hope you recognise that. She created a very positive impression of Pinney Talfourd LLP and thus I will definitely use your company in future and recommend you to others."
"A very professional service with everything made very plain and clear to me."
Mr Wellcome, Hornchurch
"The service I received could not be any better. Very courteous and helpful. Made time for me always."
Mrs V Jones, Upminster
"Macmillan Cancer Support are enormously grateful to Pinney Talfourd Solicitors, who provide us with two of their solicitors to deliver training free of charge, to nursing and other staff working with people with cancer, to help them understand the legal issues that families face when a parent is ill. This is such an important and complicated topic and the training gives the staff knowledge and confidence to broach this with parents, ensuring that children are protected and cared for in line with the parent's wishes after their death. Catherine Polli and Emma Waters are lively, approachable and flexible in their approach to delivering the training and we look forward to continuing the programme for the foreseeable future."
Mrs C Holloway, Macmillan Cancer Support
"I would like to thank your firm, and in particular Mrs Catherine Polli and her team. This matter has been continuous over the past fifteen months and I am pleased to say that it has been made less difficult by Mrs Polli's kind attention over several matters relating to the family home and finances, plus the divorce. A happy conclusion."
Ms M, Hornchurch
"I received excellent service from Catherine Polli. She was very approachable, efficient, friendly and flexible. I will continue to use Pinney Talfourd Solicitors in the future."
Mr A Brown, Kent
"I was very pleased with the service, support and understanding provided throughout the process. Much appreciated!"
Mr E, London
"Catherine Polli was incredibly efficient and sympathetic at a very difficult time. She dealt with my divorce professionally but with empathy - she became more than just my solicitor, she became a friend and thanks to her advice, I am now qualified as a teacher and enjoying m y job immensely. I can't recommend Catherine enough."
Mrs A Nicolic, Little Dunmow
"I would like to thank Catherine Polli and all her team who dealt with my divorce in a highly professional and friendly way. I would recommend Catherine to family and friends."
Mrs S Shinnick, Grays
"I just like to record my personal thanks for your efficient and professional manner in bringing this transaction to a satisfactory conclusion and also your pragmatic advice along the way as appropriate; much appreciated.

Mr A Hoggett, Brentwood
"Many thanks. You made a difficult time much more bearable by taking a load off my mind, knowing it would be dealt with. I received a thoroughly professional service at all times. Recommended!"
Mr Q, Shenfield
"I have recently been through a long drawn out and complicated divorce process, but was fortunate to have the expert advice and support from Michael Sheville. The information received was clear and balanced, and I appreciated Michael listening to my objectives to provide for my family, whilst clearly advising the legal position at the same time. I would have no hesitation in recommending his services."
Derek Wakeling, Brentwood
"I found Michael Sheville to be very straightforward and honest. I felt he handled matters which were clearly difficult for me to discuss in a sensitive manner. I feel very much that I could not have survived the previous months without his advice and support. He reacted to situations promptly and with a great deal of legal force.
He has subsequently also dealt with preparing my will, which has helped to place my affairs in order. I feel that he has a genuine interest in my well-being and has been diligent in obtaining the best outcome possible for me. I would not hesitate to recommend his services."
Mrs X, Brentwood
"Michael advised me during my divorce process and associated issues. During this time both Michael and his staff's professionalism and advice were first class. He always made himself available for advice and guidance whilst dealing with what was a long drawn out and at times difficult process.
His help in gaining the best overall outcome for me was without doubt priceless and the team he assembled around us to achieve this result was first class. Before coming here I had spent time trying to use a city firm who quite frankly were not in touch at all with my situation and in fact made matters worse."
Mike Roffey, CDS Indices, London
"Thank you so much for all your care and consideration throughout my case and especially on the day in court. I was glad to have you attend with me. You gave me the reassurance and confidence I needed to see my matter through to the end. I was very pleased with the outcome and especially grateful for your willingness to travel out of the office to see me as attending your offices would have been very challenging for me."
Ms B Anderson, Brentwood
"Claire's personal touch, professional approach, support and her strength of character saw me through an extremely difficult and emotional period of my life, my divorce..."
Elaine Escott, Essex
"Thank you so much for your time and help - you made a tricky time simple and easy. Thank you for your professionalism and energy!"
D Preston, Hornchurch
"The past 17 months has been the most stressful time of my life, but the support, guidance and care I have received from Sarah Tsindides and Catherine Loadman has been exceptional. Although Sarah is currently on Maternity Leave, she has taken the time to call me to discuss the outcome as she really does care and hopefully, we will meet for lunch upon her return! I cannot thank Sarah and Catherine enough."
Mrs W, Hornchurch
"When we first met Sarah we immediately liked her. She was very down to earth, realistic in her approach and enthusiastic. My son and I were probably difficult to handle at times but Sarah managed this admirably. I have already recommended Sarah to friends."
Mrs J, Hornchurch
"Very impressed, it seems Pinney Talfourd is on the ball and I hope matters come to a conclusion shortly. Really really pleased with Sarah's service."
Mr Henson, Essex
"I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the staff at Pinney Talfourd for the professional and efficient handling of my recent divorce. At such a stressful time, your staff were always available and when they said they would call, they did. This made the entire sad procedure more comforting. I will be passing on your firm's details to any person needing professional advice as I am confident that they would receive a profesisonal and efficient service."
Mr A Borg, South Ockendon
"I thank you for your professionalism and will recommend your services in the future."
Mr D Palmer, The Brennan Group, Colchester
"During a very difficult time in my life I felt that I had full support not just from Sarah but from a whole team, not just legally but also personally too. Not at anytime did I ever feel like I was 'just a client'. Everyone that I came into contact with at Hornchurch and Upminster offices were extremely helpful and extremely friendly from which I drew strength. You supported me and helped me through. Sarah in particular was brilliant!"
Teresa Bowers, South Ockendon
