We were very happy with the will writing service provided by the solicitors at Giles Wilson Law Ltd. Appointments were easy to arrange and matters were dealt with politely, efficiently and swiftly. We thought the fees charged were reasonable. I would use this firm again if I required a solicitor's aid in the future.

Jackie Shepard @ Giles Wilson solicitors was brilliant on handling a sale on behalf of my vendor. I have always maintained that communication is key between the agent & Solicitor, and Jackie's communication with me was great. She returned my calls , kept me in the loop on her communications with the buyers solicitor and was open with me on possible issues that could arise. i will be referring clients to use her on my future sales.

I wholly recommend the Giles Wilson team whom mopped up all the stress that a home move can often present. Readily available and quick to respond without any fuss. I was previously a client of the late Francis, Thatcher & Co, acquired by Giles Wilson some years ago, and I am very glad they have the personal touch that the late Tony Nehammer was much loved for.

Giles Wilson claim they are different from other solicitors. I would agree for all the most positive reasons. I sought their help in an exhausted, very distressed state. The solicitor really listened, took care not to interrupt me, but let my sometimes rambling narrative reach its natural end. He then exuded a quiet, assured confidence that they could help me. Their legal expertise and technical experience is of course important, but at the emotional point of need, it is the human touch and people skills that tip the balance. Also, in this regard, Giles Wilson excelled. I came away from first contact with a tremendous sense of a burden lifted, hope and a lightness of spirit.

I was in an unfortunate position where required a criminal lawyer. After numerous calls to law firms and no return phone calls/ genuine interest in the case I was fortunate to come across Giles Wilson and George Lewzey who specialise in from the law. From the outset George put me through the process and what to expect, put together all the relevant documentation for court instructed a strong barrister to present my case in court.

My previous solicitor charged me £4000.00 and took nearly 11 months and still didn't tell me what Giles Wilson did in two weeks and cost more or less an eighth of the price of what I previously paid. That in-itself speaks volumes and from my point of view excellent service. I will definitely use them again if I have too with total confidence.

I must admit, I went in with a somewhat jaded view of solicitors and them being more interested in revenue generation than serving clients but have been happily proved wrong in this instance. Right from the start it was clear Richard (and initially Rachael) were asking all the right questions, were focussed on what I wanted to achieve whilst trying to keep things as smooth as possible. Communications with myself and 3rd parties were handled professionally and tactfully. The work was handled to my satisfaction and discussions were always constructive and helpful.

As far as costs go, part of my initial reluctance was spiralling costs but the entire process was much cheaper than I feared although I had done a fair bit of the initial leg work myself. It was well worth it though to get the documentation properly structured to satisfy the court and to maximise the chance of the settlement being accepted, which it was.

All in all I was very impressed and would definitely use them again should the need arise.

Pippa at Giles Wilson has recently helped us with both a discretionary trust and slightly complicated wills and has been a joy to work with throughout, from the first call and consultation to signing of the documents. Always friendly, highly professional and very responsive, carefully and clearly advising and guiding us on quite complicated matters to get to the reassuring point where these important matters are now resolved. Legal advice is not cheap but we felt the fees were competitive and good value especially when set against the importance now and long term of the things we had to get in place.

Kirsty Buxton was our contact. We originally approached Giles Wilson, who had taken over the business of our solicitor in Leigh on Sea, in regard to obtaining Deputyship for Derek's brother and also LPAs for both of us. Kirsty very carefully went through what was involved in the Deputyship process and the pros and cons of LPAs. The fees charged overall included the fees charged by the Court of Protection and all in was quite hefty. However, the service we got was exemplary. Our LPa's went through quickly and with no problems. The application for Deputyship was a different story starting in May 2019 and finishing in May 2020, all down to the Court of Protection requirements. Kirsty was there for us at each step along the way and her knowledge and help were invaluable.
We would certainly recommend this firm to others.

After being dismissed from my job after 25 years, I took my case to Giles Wilson to see if they could help me with a wrongful dismissal claim, that I felt I had.

I met with one of the partners, Roy Daby, he read the notes I provided, asked some questions, and thankfully took my case on. Also, worth bearing mind is that the company we were "taking on" is a house hold name, who could obviously afford top London based legal people, but this did not deter GW from taking my case on.

The whole process was very stressful, but it was made easier by the fact that I had Jacqui from GW working on my case. She was always on the end of the phone if I had a question or worry, and several times she would call me late into the evening where she was still burning the midnight oil on the case.

Added to the good work done by Jacqui and Elliot, GW also engaged the services of an excellent barrister, Mark Stephens. Watching Mark work during the tribunal and remedy hearing was amazing. He also showed that he cared and that an injustice had been done when I was dismissed and he wanted to put it right and get me the best possible outcome.

All in all, the work that Jacqui, the GW team and Mark did help me take on and beat a blue-chip company that thought they could treat a loyal employee with 25 years’ service in an appalling manner.

Thank you, Roy, for believing in me and making it possible for me to take my previous employer to tribunal.

Thank you also to Jacqui, Elliot and Mark for their hard work and support. I would not hesitate in recommending Giles Wilson to anyone who is unfairly dismissed, as they showed true empathy and care in their work and showed they cared about me and my family.

All in all, I am very pleased with the final outcome

Thank you all at Giles Wilson.

After making the daunting decision to seek legal advice, I searched the internet trying to find a Solicitor who understood domestic abuse and the impact it can have on someone’s life. I came across Rachael Haine at Giles Wilson, her website profile spoke of her extensive experience in dealing with domestic abuse cases and at that point I made contact.
Rachael worked as my Solicitor for over a year and throughout this time she always provided me with reassurance and honestly regarding my case. I have so much gratitude and thanks, without Rachael our lives would still be in a very dark place. Now both my daughter and I look forward to the future and no longer live in fear.

I have for almost three years been helped complete my divorce and financial matters by Rachael Haine.
It has been a difficult and not a pleasant time in my life . Rachael has been very supportive to me helping me to work through the options for myself and my family . Rachael has always been honest and guided me through making some very difficult decisions . Divorce is not something for the faint hearted it is expensive and exasperating and quite unfair at times . I am glad I had someone who took the time to discuss with me the best ways forward . I would recommend Rachael to assist anyone going through the same experience . The front of house staff are really kind and always helpful .

Ryan Dewar was extremely thorough and honest throughout our dealings. I always felt safe with the advice given and supported with any issues or queries that needed to be made. Ryan definitely had our best interests at heart and was very patient in answering any questions. The reports created by Ryan were detailed and covered all bases- really impressive! Of course, as first time buyers, the legalities for a property purchase can always feel stressful and burdensome but Ryan's knowledge and expertise always put us at ease.
Giles Wilson as a team have always been great and others in the practice have also dealt with legal matters for my family members. I would highly recommend this firm- whether it's dealings via email, telephone or face-to-face, their professionalism is second to none!

Recently I had to set up a power of attorney for my aged mother, on an emergency basis. I phoned the lawyers closest to her home and thank heavens I did. I called early in the morning and made an appointment for a layer to visit my mother that afternoon. Unbeknownst to me, the lawyer, Daniel Wilson, who showed up, on time is a partner of the firm (Giles Wilson) and I couldn't have asked for anyone kinder and more understanding to my situation. He spent more than an hour explaining to my mother exactly how the power of attorney worked, all the legal ramification and what was expected from her and her three attorneys, her three children.

As mailing the completed package back is not appropriate, Mr. Wilson will again visit my mother, a service most appraised. I was shock at the "set" price, but then I confess to being totally naive when it comes to what lawyers cost, but that said, Daniel was worth it.

14/05/18 - Reviewed by Steve Cox

My ex-wife decided to hire a top city solicitor in a effort to extract as much money from our settlement as possible. I decided to remain "local" with my instruction (Phil Giles) and never regretted it.

I would not wish my experience upon anyone, but through 17 months of hell instigated by the other side, Phil provided experienced, clear, calm and measured guidance.

Although Phil's hourly fees were less than half those of my wife's solicitor, in my opinion, he was a much better practitioner (and I am a non practising barrister so I do have some idea on this) as well as being far more pragmatic and practical.

During a process like this it is very important to have someone you can trust, and who is able to give clear answers and reassurance which allows you to get to sleep that night.

Most importantly, I was very pleased with the final settlement. We had to go to court and again, Phil's knowledge of the local courts and judges was very useful and his choice of barrister was also excellent.

My costs were very high by the end but they were fair considering the amount of work that needed to be done. I have no doubt that Phil would have been able to conclude matters far earlier and at a fraction of the cost had my ex not decided to take the "city" route she did.

Despite the fact that I sincerely hope I never have to use Phil again (!) I am very glad that I did engage him, and I shudder to think what might have happened had I not had such a capable solicitor on my side.

The initial response was immediate with a quote to solicitate my house purchase. I was really happy with the way that my purchase was handled throughout and was given some very useful advice. I was moving from a rented property and the end of my contract was rapidly approaching so I put a huge amount of pressure on the guys at Giles Wilson to push the purchase through before a certain date. This was handled calmly and professionally and I was very grateful to be able to move into my new house a few days before my rental contract ended. This allowed us to do a gradual move which saved a lot of stress. There were also a few tricky issues with boundaries that were sorted out for me very quickly and easily.

I would have liked a few more regular updates throughout, without having to chase myself, that’s the only thing that has stopped me giving the full 5 stars.

Overall though a great experience and they did a great job to hit my tight deadline. In total it took about 8 weeks from initial contact to completion which is fantastic.

I have used Giles Wilson numerous times for private client conveyancing work and for commercial conveyancing, as well as employment law and tenant eviction. I have also recommended the firm several times for divorce work (some of my friends are still married!) and had excellent feedback from those I’ve recommended. As a former litigator myself, I have high expectations and have been very satisfied with the five or six different fee earners I have dealt with, hence my willingness to recommend the firm. I have read some of the negative reviews on here and would advise anyone who is not happy with the service they are getting from their lawyer - at any firm - to write immediately to the senior partner. As an employer myself, our reputation is important to us and we can only deal with staff not living up to it if we are made aware.

Thank you for your positive comments, Phil. As a business owner yourself, you will know that any complaint from a client hurts, particularly when you have lived and breathed the business for 20+ years. We do sometimes get things wrong, but when we do, we work hard to put it right; recently, our conveyancing dept was being re-structured and there were some teething problems which, I am glad to say, have now resolved. Online reviews are a new thing for us and it has surprised me that this can be the first port of call for a client before contacting us direct with their concern. As solicitors, client confidentiality is a professional duty of ours, so responding to a negative online review can be a fine line to tread (and sometimes the review is not even from a client, but rather an unhappy individual on the other side of a case to us). As you say, any client who has an issue should always contact us (me) first so that we can resolve it. Thanks again.

I was recommended to Giles Wilson from a friend of mine. Being new to the area I had no idea what firm to go with and you always hear such worrying stories about solicitors etc.
I was booked in and spoke with Melinda Giles who immediately put me at ease. It was a very trying time I had moved to a new area and was going through a divorce and custody arrangement for my child. Melinda guided me and helped me through each process - i had so many questions about what he could and couldn’t demand when it came to our child and was extremely worried about it all. Melinda answered everything in a way I could understand and ensured I had everything I needed. She kept on top of everything to do with my case and reassured me at every stage. I’m happy to say I’m now divorced and have a visiting agreement in place for my ex to see our child.
I will not be using any other solicitor from here on out, I couldn’t imagine anyone else giving me the reassurance, advice and help I need in the same way as Melinda did. I’m forever grateful to her for her help and the help of the firm in general. Thank you so much Melinda & team.

They have been dealing with my divorce now since November 2017, I have not heard back from them for over 6 weeks even though I was told they would be in touch 3 weeks ago. I have called the office and left messages now I find out the person who was dealing with my divorce left the company some weeks ago, I feel they are bad at communication and organisation along with being very slack at responding or returning phone calls. A shame to see such a great family company being run in to the ground by a team who appear not to care, this will be a great loss to Leigh On Sea but with the current lack of customer service it will be inevitable that this once great company will close.
