“After struggling to find a solicitor that could deal with my case I found myself with the most incredible family solicitor. Heather Broadfield was outstanding, the help & support she gave me during the case was second to none. Heather is unbelievably professional and has worked tirelessly throughout.  Words just are not enough to describe the amount of thanks I owe to Heather she is an absolute credit to the company.”

Ms T, Warrington

“Heather Broadfield has been very professional, but more importantly, extremely supportive during my divorce. She is knowledgeable, and understanding of the whole process. I could highly recommend her services.”

Ms C, Leigh

“My solicitor Heather Broadfield was incredible in my time of need. Her empathy and professionalism, mixed with how fantastic she is at her job, made my experience easier to go through. Her compassion and reassurance from the start, left me knowing I was in good hands. I could breathe a little easier, knowing all the legal side was going to be taken care of efficiently and effectively. All the legal jargon was explained and I felt supported, and kept informed every step of the way. If ever I had a query, I was contacted back quickly. I couldn’t have selected a better solicitors, and I’m so grateful for all the hard work and dedication Heather put in. Eternally grateful!”

Ms Q, Cheshire

“The staff at the Leigh office who I met face to face were really nice, sympathetic, but not sombre. Just what I needed after the death of my husband. Telephone calls at the Newton office were equally as nice. 10/10 to the staff who dealt with my husband’s estate. I have had one or two bad experiences recommended solicitors, and I can say that I am very pleased with the service I received from Rebecca.”

Mrs Cunliffe, Tyldesley

“Very happy with services provided. My mum passed away in January & the staff were so helpful and considerate. I was kept updated via telephone calls, letter and emails. Many thanks . I will definitely use Dootsons again in the future.”
