Hat’s off to Jarmans. Even though John told me some of the property team has left to set up a new firm, the property team looking after the matters before the new team starts is doing an amazing job ensureing smooth service. I spoke to Jeni Niven and boy was she helpful. I will recommend Jarmans as they get on with it and provide excellent services

8 years ago Jay Sahota advised me on a stressful and long litigation which eventually went to court. To cut a long story short, Jay provided concrete and clear advice (very different from previous solicitors I'd had the misfortune to use), I represented myself in court and successfully defended the civil case. Jay puts the human back into legal representation and I remembered his honest and definitive strategies which helped me win.

Recently I had the need of further legal advice, this time for a settlement/redundancy issue with my employer. Jay had since moved to Jarmans but could not help as it was not his field of expertise so I was put in contact with his colleague Emma Lee. I found her a pleasure to work with. Emma provided efficient, sound advice, which resulted in a successful outcome. Her tone to the opposition was perfectly balanced: hard and precise without being overly forceful. And just as important, she responded quickly and clearly to my questions.

I would highly recommend Jarmans.

I was very happy with the excellent service I received from Jarmans Solicitors. Duane Bridger, Lauren Murray and the rest of the conveyancing team were absolutely fantastic.

I dealt with Lauren and found her very knowledgeable getting back to each of my emails very quickly.

I know this has come late, but Jay Sahota changed our lives in 2011 by taking our case to the Court of Appeal, raising amazing novel arguments and winning, with a combination of intelligence, diligence and detail

Jarmans solicitors helped me with my case very efficiently, they kept me informed at all times and in the end the case was successful and I can now see my son on a regular basis. Prices was fair and even though courts can sometimes be unresponsive and slow, both Gordon and Lee managed to push for results which I will always greatly appreciate... Other solicitor company's I went to did not give the same results, so I highly recommend jarmans solicitors.

Service was very professional but friendly. All the members of Jarmans staff that I dealt with on this small case gave me great confidence.

I have used Jarmans in the passed and would definitely use them again

Many thanks to all.

Would not recommend this Sittingbourne Solicitors , have had an ongoing case which had to stop because solicitor was asking too much money and solicitor was for the other party and not acting for myself was in favour of other party would see that the solicitor was more for the other party rather than wiling to fight for me/us , solicitor kept on asking us to go on line and fil out forms on line it seemed like me/us was to doing all the work and solicior did not seem that interested in acting for me/us

BEWARE. I wish I'd read the reviews about Jarmans before getting involved with them, a decision I now regret. My experience with them suggest they are a dodgy, unprofessional and exploitative firm. The solicitor who acted for my commercial conveyance, Sukhbir Sangra kept putting pressure on me to take on additional services for him to charge me extra for. He made everything seem so complicated so he could justify further additional fees and he frustrated the whole process including the vendor's solicitors and everyone involved. In the end after I said no to his additional services, he declined to stop acting for me on the very day we were to exchange and after he had asked me to transfer the money required for exchange. I had to find another solicitor last minute and it took a week for me to get part of my money back from him. He deducted £5,000 in fees for services he did not provide and I did not agree to. I filed a complaint to the partner, Barry Bond and he just completely ignored all my complaints. Now I am having to go the Legal Ombudsman. AVOID this firm, they are dodgy and should be struck off acting as solicitors. BEWARE

Taken years to process probate. Complaints go unanswered. Promise to get back but never do. Say they want to finalise the Estate but do nothing for months. Would never use again or recommend.

Asked for a complaint form to sublimit to the Law Society. Of course got no reply. After 100 years you would think they would know where the forms are kept. One star is to high for this kettle of misfits

The procedure is that you send details of your complaint to myself and our Complaints partner, if we are unable to resolve the issue, you should of course contact the Law Society. I am unsure to which forms you refer, should you need any further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Rather than go by recommendation elsewhere we chose Jarmans because they are local to our project and had a good website. We were fools. No feedback reporting, no progress, no replies to our concerns.....absolutely appalling. We sacked them and went with a recommendation from our auditors after a wasted 6 months. AVOID.

My experience has been terrible and still is. My mother's will was not handled how she wanted it to be. They have ignored me and continue to do so. I have been made to feel intimidated by them. Have complained about them to no avail.
I have no confidence in their actions and will never recommend them to anyone.

I would like to say how wonderful and professional Jarmans solictors were when I sold my flat (heavley pregnant) with a defective lease, and of purchasing a house. They were very helpful and understanding, and yes I could get hold of them on a friday afternoon. I was so impressed with their welcoming conversations I am now using them again with my next sale/Purchase of a property. They explanied everything in detail (in Plain english) and their rates are very cheap to the rest!

I wanted to use a particular solicitor dealing with probate in this firm and I wanted a quote for the sale of a property. When I telephoned, the receptionist was both friendly and helpful, and put me through to a secretary who was able to give me a quote. Explained who would be dealing with my conveyancing in a clear concise yet friendly manner and I also received a call from the solicitor concerned. I have every confidence now that this firm are the best firm to act for me in my circumstances and I have recommended that we use them to my family when we are able to proceed.
