“Have to say a big thank you to your firm and in particular Richard Jones from your Melksham office, his support and advice helped made a difficult situation a lot easier and gave you the feeling that you were not on your own. Thanks again...”
“Reeds solicitors have been incredibly professional and knowledgeable from start to finish. I was arrested and taken into custody after a false allegation made against me, and the duty solicitor at the time was from Reeds, this I am very grateful for as they were extremely nice and caring as well as informative. As the investigation progressed they stayed in constant contact with me and asked for updates on my behalf. I then went in twice more for questioning where I asked for Reeds to be present. Once again they were impeccable in how they dealt with the situation. They have an amazing array of knowledge and are able to look at the case from both sides. Thankfully down to their work the case has been closed as no further action. I can’t thank them enough for being such genuine great people with a wealth of knowledge. Exactly what you need when you find yourself in a distressing situation that requires legal aid. I had the pleasure of dealing with Rich Jones, who I would highly recommend to anyone who needs help in the minefield that is legal advice. ”
