"Many thanks again to you both for guiding us through this process and making it as pain-free as possible. I've yet to meet anyone who's been involved with a divorce and had anything good to say about the experience, so I think you and Charlotte can also be very proud of the work you have put in."
"Charlotte has been excellent - kept us well informed and answered all queries and concerns promptly and efficiently."
Ms Boyd, Preston
"We were very impressed by the service given to us by KBL, in particular Pauline O'Rourke who was the best Conveyancer we have ever used. We feel that it is a pity that not all Solicitors involved with our house sale and purchase were as efficient, diligent and communicative as Pauline O'Rourke."
Mr & Mrs Gleave, Bolton
"The family solicitors at KBL flex their legal muscles in what are undoubtedly some of the most personal and emotive situations imaginable.
My instructions to KBL arose from a very difficult and regrettable family separation. Not only were KBL utter professionals; they also dealt with the matter compassionately and appropriately at all times and as a result achieved a very good outcome.
Instructing KBL made a difficult set of circumstances easier to deal with and their support and commitment throughout was invaluable. "
Mr F of Preston.
"Over the past eighteen months we have used KBL for a variety of legal assignments, as a company we have sought their advice on matters ranging from defending litigation from third parties, behaviour of competitors, structure of our client contracts and franchising. We have also recommended them to our clients for both residential and commercial conveyancing.
In all matters KBL have acted swiftly, professionally and with the utmost courtesy and respect towards us and our clients.
Communication is paramount in our business as moving house is a very stressful time and this stress can be exacerbated if clients are not kept abreast of developments in the conveyancing process.
We will continue to recommend KBL to our clients and use them for our own legal matters as we cannot fault their attention to detail and customer service in any way."
Matt Jones, The Purple Property Shop

"I am sure you would be keen to hear just how marvellous Mr Hassells and Ms Hart have been at successfully handling my wife's recent unfair dismissal case.
Mr Hassells has demonstrated throughout a thorough and diligent approach to the proceedings, ably assisted by Ms Hart. They have given us the very best of themselves in reaching a satisfactory outcome, much more than one could reasonably expect.
Most importantly they believed what my wife was telling them, and I can't begin to say how reassuring that was for us.
I'm sure that you are already aware of how good John and Christine are, but we just wanted to add our names to your list of satisfied clients.
May we also say a final thank you to your reception staff who always showed great courtesy and efficiency whenever we visited your offices. "
