I’d just like to thank Vicki Rutherford, particularly, very clear, concise and prompt.
Lisa Royle was very down-to-earth and easy to get hold of. She always returned our calls promptly, and both she and her assistant, Jennie, actioned everything promptly. Very efficient and professional service. She acted for us on both the sale of our old house and the purchase of our new property.

Amanda Martland (superbly assisted by Jack Johnson) were an absolute pleasure to deal with. Throughout the recent conveyance they carried out for us, we can't recall one instance when the phone wasn't answered and very quickly. Every query that we brought up was answered promptly in a very clear and concise manner and the whole process of selling our property felt simple; this was obviously due to Amanda and Jack's skill and great effort in the background. I would recommend Birchall Blackburn Law without hesitation and, when I come to sell another property, within the next year, I'll be contacting Amanda with my instructions.
All round great service, friendly and I would definitely use again!
Thanks so much for all your help everyone has been fantastic.
There was nothing that I disliked it was a good smooth exchange.
I would recommend highly my solicitor Hannah Folds for her expertise in the handling of my purchase.
Lisa Royle is excellent and she and her team are very approachable.
Lisa Royle and Birchall Blackburn have dealt with a number of purchases and sales for me and my family. I always recommend Lisa to my clients with regard to conveyancing matters.
I have worked with solicitors for many years I am 56 years old and I have found very few very helpful conscientious solicitors that have given me open honest and Wise advice and without charging a fortune for this information. Whenever I have asked for quotes I have found Birchall Blackburn very competitive and very competent. I have dealt specifically with Tony coates and his team on commercial and personal transactions. I've been very impressed with how often they have saved me money by offering sound Advice and Solutions that were unknown to me which really helped to make matters fast and smooth without serious costs.
And the thing I like most about them is the personal touch that they have and the communication which has been second to none everything has been dealt with fast and efficiently with full transparency help and explanations to understand the full legal implications with every part of the work carried out..
I've started to use Tony Coates and his team at Birchall Blackburn for all my legal solicitor work within my business where I own several commercial warehouses and also in selling personal property where they have dealt with many sales and purchases.
I would be the first to give them a five star rating. From the moment I had the first telephone call with Tony I have not looked back, always been very impressed had times where they've been able save me thousands of pounds with Solutions and great negotiation when we have often worked with terrible solicitors that were trying to make every penny from every problem. Tony almost had a skill to turn them around and bring and keep things Brief and to the point.
First class service thank you Birchall Blackburn I am a very happy customer.
The service I received was excellent. Thank you.
Kept in touch all the time and very polite when they rang me, excellent. I would recommend this service to any one , they have kept me informed through out the buying of my property, would use again.
