They're brilliant, incredibly professional and do what needs to be done. Won my case and resulted in me getting my kids home, they then followed up a while later to see how the kids were, showing they truly cared and aren't in it just for the money like some solicitors.Daryl Hall

The whole company's attention to detail is the reason why they need to work on your case. The family and child law division supported me beyond the professional. They advised and guided more broadly, as well as being very diligent and thorough on all the small details, that really mattered. As a result I got the result I believe I deserved.
Could not recommend the company enough.
Amarjit and Martha were both very responsive and efficient; they did everything they said they would and I had every confidence in their service.Matt Allen

Don't go big and commercial go to Broadway solicitors. Bhavna and the team are very professional with the bonus of being able to provide a personal touch. I initially engaged a large firm but found that I was being left and ignored so we parted company and I started with Broadway. From the very first meeting I was given the confidence that I was a valued client and that I was in capable hands. The legal jargon was broken down and delivered in a user friendly way and I received regular updates without prompting. The solicitor and barrister team were fantastic and I have no doubt that they were value for money. I absolutely recommend Broadway solicitors.John Mark
I first was referred to Broadway Solicitors in 2006 at what was a very challenging, emotional time in my life. Bhavna was professional, kind, caring and guided and supported me throughout the process. I have again gone back to Bhavna this year 2020 as I would not go anywhere else and once again Bhavna supported me . I could not have been strong enough to proceed without her. I highly recommend Bhavna Desai and her team at Broadway Solicitors.Linda Stewart
The only thing that made my divorce less traumatic was the ease at which it was over with, all thanks to Bhavna and her amazing team. I cannot express my gratitude enough for the amazing service she provided. The communication throughout was excellent; at no point did I feel misinformed or misled, making her work unparalleled to others I’ve encountered in the same field. Bhavna’s warm and reassuring approach gave me the strength to overcome one of the worst periods of my life- I bid good riddance to this chapter with the help of Broadway Solicitors!Anika Hussain
Bhavna and her team rescued me from a very traumatic separation with my partner. They stopped me from being evicted from the family home and they secured a very good settlement for me. They are so compassionate and explained everything very clearly to me along the way. I am forever grateful to you all. Thank You!Helen Prince
I highly recommend Bhavna, she has been the strength I needed at a very difficult time. She is clear, direct and keeps your focus where it needs be. I am so glad to have Bhavna in my life helping me to successfully navigate the most important steps I'll ever take for me and my family.

Richard is a real find - I was searching for a local solicitor to help with writing a will for myself and my wife. He took us through every stage of the process in plain English and made sure everything was covered thoroughly.
We have every faith in Richard's abilities and wouldn't hesitate to use his services again or to recommend him to others.
He has also recently handled my friend's divorce case and I know that my friend has been very impressed with him also.Matt Davis
Richard has insight, knowledge and expertise that I have not seen matched by any other legal professional I have seen. His work has been outstanding. Having gone through multiple solicitors in a complex case, Richard was the first person I found who could actually see into the situation and has done a stellar job in helping me with my legal requirements.Farah Bokhari
Richard has provided my family with legal advice for a number of years, including Wills, Divorce, Child Custody , and even Car Parking Fines. During difficult times it really helps to have a kind attentive solicitor to put your mind at rest. Richard has always gone the extra mile, not only to get the job done, but also stays in regular contact to keep you updated on progress so you do not worry unnecessarily. I highly recommend Mortlake Law.
Richard Buxton was extremely helpful in guiding us to complete our wills.
Though unaquainted with the various legal procedures involved he helped us with great patience to make our decisions and to arrive at a satisfactory conclusion. We would recommend his services.
