I was extremely happy with manner in which Hannah Edgley handled the purchase of my new home. Her expert help and assistance was very much appreciated.

I have no hesitation in recommending Hannah and Foy's Solicitors.

Very Satisfied

I would just like to thank Lee Hunter, Sam Smith and all the staff at Foys Solicitors for all their help dealing with my late mother's estate last year. They couldn't have been more helpful and patient during a very difficult and confusing time in my life. They lifted a very heavy burden from me and dealt with all the problems in a timely and professional manner. I had them recommended to me by a reliable source and I would recommend them to anyone.

I’ve used Foys in Doncaster for a couple of reasons, one was property related and another for probate. In both cases the staff have been helpful, compassionate, professional and efficient. Our family is particularly grateful for all the work Lee Hunter has done for us in relation to probate. It was a difficult time and he went out of his way to support us and gave us some excellent advice. Further, we have found their charges to be reasonable in all our dealings with them, they charged a fixed fee which helps you know what to expect, so wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them heartily!

My family and I have been clients of Foys for many years and wouldnt go anywhere else. They have looked after us following divorce, will making, power of attorney and represented us in court following a successful will dispute. our latest contact being probate. Lee Hunter represented us along with Sam Smith and I found Lee very knowledgable approachable and friendly taking time to make sure everything was understood and mindful of the fact we were still grieving. Wonderful 5 star service at all times

The process of applying for probate and completing my mother’s estate was handled with care compassion and understanding despite some issues arising with delays in the probate services, needing additional affidavits and other complications. I was happy that I could communicate with Lee in a timely manner and if he wasn’t available his secretary was always happy to help and returned my calls promptly at what is a stressful time. Although I had collected the information together to apply for probate the expertise provided was invaluable and I am sure I wouldn’t have been able to navigate the process myself. The cost was approx £1700 and well worth the money

I recently was represented by Jayne Kirtley from the Retford/Worksop office and I couldn't be more grateful. All court proceedings can be extremely difficult and her support in all areas as been incredible. I felt heard and understood and she had compassion and showed me respect and made this experience as good as it could be.

I would like to take time to give a very positive feedback during the process of finalising my parents will.
As my father had recently had a stroke and as a consequence he has been left virtually paralysed down his right hand side .
Mum and Dads solicitor Lee and his assistant took time to go out to their home and handled their will in a caring and compassionate manner.
I would recommend, Foys of Doncaster to anyone else especially if you are in a similar situation.
The cost was fair and competitive.

I was recently made redundant and was urged by the HR Department to have my terms of redundancy reviewed by a solicitor. I had used Foy's before for my will and had no problem with using them again. I was put in touch with Mr Makol who, from the word go, handled my case great efficiency, and made the transition from the original redundancy offer to my being paid very smooth. I would definitely recommend this service to others in the same situation.

I bought and sold a property with Foys in late 2018. The solicitor I worked with was very communicative. Time was tight, and I really appreciated the quick turnarounds she achieved towards the end of the process.

My parents used Karen Barton for wills and powers of attorney and were upset how rude she was. Couldnt wait to get rid of them. Old people might witter on a bit but good manners cost nothing especially when other firms would be glad of the work. She wont get any work from us in the future. Good manners cost nothing. I have given 2 stars because they couldnt fault her work but really mad that she upset them. Only sent my parents to Foys because my in-laws used a nice man here for wills a couple of years ago but it seems he's left

Anuj Makol helped me with an employment matter. I had difficulty initially finding a suitable solicitor who didnt just offer compensation claim assistance but on contacting Foys branch at Chapeltown I was put in touch with Mr Makol who very kindly arranged an appointment very quickly as I needed some paperwork reviewed and advice before signing within a very short turnaround. He was very thorough and explained things clearly and the cost was reasonable. I would recommend this gentleman.

Unfortunately I found the solicitor to be unhelpful and found that they only provided advice I could (and had already) found using internet search engines. They didn't seem interested in helping me at all and didn't bother to read the ample documentation I brought in. I got the opinion the "free" advice they offer is not worth their time and if your not paying £200 per hour they don't want to listen or indeed help with your problem. Safe yours and their time and effort and avoid.

We found Pauline Heywood at the Chapeltown office to be both very supportive and attentive throughout the sale of my property and the prior purchase of our new house. We would like to thank her wholeheartedly for making this a smooth and stress-free experience. We would not hesitate to recommend her services at any time.

I used Foys to purchase a purpose build flat in 2016 and it took them 5 months to complete the contract. The documents received after almost 5 months were wrong, names, address, even the land registry number was not right. If you do not want to chase them on daily basis and to make sure you buy the property, I would not recommend them. Appalling service and I wish I knew.

Had the misfortune of having to deal with Dayne from this firm. To summarize terrible service, inexperienced and incompetent staff, aggressive and confrontational communication style. Purchase of the property was delayed by a week and it became obvious that the conveyancer was inexperienced in processing the transaction even though we were assured by Indeed, the company which passed us on the Foys, that they only work with the most highly rated firms. We did receive a written apology from them and compensation for 150 GBP however, I would suggest avoiding them like the plague and pay the additional 200 GBP to a firm that actually knows what they are doing and understand what customer service entails.

Slow in answering and took 1.5 days to realise the property I wanted to buy was in Scotland where they are not able to act.
Even when mentioned the offer was accepted and needed to act fast to avoid other bidding.
Disappointed by the experience.
