I have been with Paul J Watson for years, your service and Pam are fantastic. I just want to say thank you for all your help.

  • I worked with Damion when visiting here – I couldn’t of asked for a better Solicitor! He went above and beyond to make sure I was ok and everything was organised! He even checked in with me after it was all over to make sure I was ok!
    I would highly recommend Paul J Watson – especially Damion to anyone who needs representing! Thanks again.

    Jessica Rose L. 16.11.16

  • Where do I start, first of all, I don’t do “Snakebook” but this is a genuine review that Damian and Paul will confirm. I needed representation at short notice for the pending brush with the failing, rotting corrupted judicial system. Damian was straight on the case and worked hard against Judges and prosecutors to have the best possible outcome for me. Circuit Judges, that have private law firms representing the very same type of defences, which they’re sending people to prison for….. Contradicting judging?! (Yes Damian, I know my stuff too�) anyway, I received the best outcome possible with the help of Damian and I met Paul in the process too. Two real Gents, just wish we didn’t meet in them circumstances. So for now, I’ll do what I have to do and then fly below the radar again for another 30 odd year! I’d recommend you to anyone needing your service, thanks Damian, Paul and the rest of your staff I didn’t meet.

    Inda K. Via Facebook 14.1.17

  • I used Paul in 2015. Excellent service and I couldn’t think of a better person to represent you if you need a solicitor.
    Stevie W. Via Facebook 15.12.16

  • Been using these for years spot on.
    Michael C. Via Facebook 30.01.17

  • We needed a good criminal lawyer for a family member. The initial firm we were with had done nothing for us so I called Paul Watson solicitors. From that first call onwards we felt like the team cared. Everyone that we spoke to was professional, honest with us and responsive. We were informed on every stage. Even when there was no update we were contacted at least once a week so we never felt forgotten. From our family member’s side, instead of being treated like a criminal, he felt he was treated with respect and listened to. Paul Watson was a credit to the case and I honestly think it is because of himself and his team that we received the best outcome possible. I cannot do enough to thank them all and would highly recommend Paul Watson Solicitors to anyone looking for a solicitor

  • Can’t thank this firm enough for representing my husband in a court case to have his son live with us. All involved were fantastic. We got the outcome we set out to get. DADs do win!!!

  • PAUL J WATSON i would like to say a huge thank you to Jess Dodds firstly for all the help and ongoing support in and also out of work hours during my long custody battle for my child. Jess has brought me a very long way from were i was but not only that she has helped me develop as a person and during this support i have been able to get my life in order and be the mother i most desperately craved and cried out to be. due to the help from Jess i now have got that chance to be a mum again i honestly and truly don’t no how to thank her enough and all the support Paul j Watson have given me, they took me at face value and never once judged me for my past and the mistakes i regrettably made. Jess has also helped my extended family with other problems that came to arise without question. Jess Dodds i would like to thank you for giving me my life back and believing in me when no one else would and for that i am truly grateful now and forever. Thanks to every one else at Paul j Watson for all the help when Jess Dodds has been unavailable and u have helped me with the problems and issues at that time (and the barristers that have attended with Jess or in her absence) so thank you all as a team and also the whole firm i cant thank you all enough THANKS AGAIN

  • I’d like to thank Paul Watson and his team for their unswerving support and dedication in securing the release of my brother from prison. My brother had some allegations of sexual misconduct made against him, this resulted in him being convicted, after two trials, and being sent to prison despite his continual denying of the offences. Mr Watson’s team continued to support my brother through an appeal which was successful and resulted in the conviction being overturned. The professionalism shown by the team has been outstanding and their knowledge application of the law was second to none. I WANT TO PUBLICLY THANK THEM FOR THEIR HARD WORK AND WOULD RECOMMEND ANYONE WHO FINDS THEY ARE IN A SIMILAR SITUATION TO CONTACT THEM FOR ADVICE

  • Would like to Thank Mr Paul Watson for all his hard work and effort he put into my case after going through a different solicitor who totally messed it up, Mr Watson started from scratch and provided a very strong defence with working so many hours on it. Paul went out of his way and attended my home when i was unable to travell just goes to show Mr Paul Watson is totally committed to his clients. Would definately recommend Paul Watson to others in need of a solicitor. Cant thankyou enough Paul. Glen Bostock and Armz

  • I’d like to thank Paul J Watson solicitors for helping sort out the sale and profits of my home i owned with my ex partner. Stacey was very helpful and put me at ease. Something i dreaded doing for years was quick and less painful than i thought it would be.

    Thanks again

  • I would like to thank Paul J Watson Solicitors for the service they provided recently through a troubling time, I was very reassured by the advice I received and I would not hesitate to recommend Paul J Watson to anyone

    Thank you so much

  • Thank you so so much for all your help with getting me access to my son. Was a long slog but so worth it and thank you to Paul, Michelle and the rest of the staff there for making it possible

  • I was extremely apprehensive as a single, first time buyer but the assistance Paul, Gemma and his team at Paul J Watson Solicitors was invaluable. They were always available to assist with all my enquiries and made the daunting process seamlessly efficient, friendly but always professional, keeping things simple and easy to understand. I will certainly ask them to help me in the future when requiring any legal service.

    Hillary W.

  • Both buying and selling homes is often a stressful process and frustrations are difficult to avoid. Throughout the process, I have found all the staff at Paul J Watson to be most helpful, responsive, thorough and very professional. Not only did I find Paul J Watson to be most competitive in their fee structure, I felt the whole process was made as stress and hassle free as a sale and purchase of a home can possible be. Should I require any legal work in the future, I will certainly be asking Paul J Watson to quote on the work. Robert M.

  • Although the job turned out to be bigger than Paul Watson’s (or I) anticipated, the professionalism and “personal touch” displayed by Paul and his team was first-class. The communication was constant and reassuring, and it was the only part of the house-buyng process that worked flawlessly. When it came to remortgaging my property, Paul Watson’s were extremely quick to point out that due to their set up being incompatible with my chosen Mortgage provider, they would be unable to provide conveyancing services. Where other solicitors dragged out this conversation or suggested I might change my mortgage provider, Paul Watson’s were immediately explicit about what they could (and couldn’t) offer. This has guaranteed that they will be my first call for all future work. Rowan G.

  • Paul Watson dealt with both my accident claim and house move. In both cases, he was quick and efficient. I was very satisifed with the service and would recommend them to anyone needing legal advice in those areas. Jonathan G.

  • As a family business, Paul J Watson Solicitors added a sympathetic and sensitive touch whilst acting on our behalf during the otherwise unpleasant process of probate. After having suffered the trauma of the loss of our loved ones, Paul and his family worked swiftly to ensure that minimum anxiety was caused to our family in the handling of our legal affairs. Victoria P.

  • I used Mr Watson as my solicitor during my accident claim ,as previously his firm dealt with our house move which went through very smoothly. I was not disappointed with my decision to use Mr Watson again and was extremely pleased with the outcome. I would have confidence in recommending Mr Watson to any of my friends or work collegues. Andrew T. 05/11/2006.

  • Paul Watson and Gemma handled our house move very proffesionally. Ours was no ordinary house move as it turned out the house we were buying had a public footpath running through it. This was a very unusual case but was dealt with professionally and efficiently even though no matter what they did to move the sale on , it would unearth more problems. They eventually won the battle and we are just so grateful for all their hard work and commitment. Thankyou. Dawn H. 30/08/2008

  • I would recommend Paul J Watson Solicitors without hesitation. Paul, Gemma and Lindsey gave me first class service when purchasing a house recently. As I live outside England, all contact was made via phone and email. They were always available, friendly, professional and efficient in all areas. Thank you. Denise I. 31/10/2008

  • We selected Paul Watson Solicitors to represent us in our purchase, due to the fact they promised to be hands on and guide me through the process, as this was our first venture in buying a property. Everything started off smoothly but then due to the nature of our purchase we came up against quiet a few obstacles! Gemma and Mr Watson worked very hard and around the clock to get the issues resolved, Mr Watson even hand delivered forms out side of office hours to make sure forms got completed in time. Fantastic all-round service and I highly recommend – Anthony 14/06/2009
