I had cause to use Leonard Gray Solicitors for a acrimonious divorce and child contact case over a period of three years. During the most painful, stressful time of my life Sarah Orrell was a huge help and gave me incredible support. I cannot recommend Sarah and Leonard Gray highly enough, no question went unanswered and nothing was to much trouble. Easily the most knowledgeable, approachable and caring solicitors out there.Chris Rail
Leonard Gray, and specifically Colin Smith, came highly recommended to guide me through and manage a difficult and painful divorce. I was so impressed by the professionalism and level of service I received from both Colin and his assistant Nicky Bull that I have since recommended them to others and would not hesitate to recommend them in the future.Danny Sperling
Using Leonard Gray made all legal processes extremely easy. Always friendly and helpful in all dealings. Many thanks to Sarah for all her help over the past few years. Would definitely use them again if needed.Stephen Grimes
