Used Alertta Shaw for family matters and overseeing the sale of my former matrimonial home. Patricia, Sue and Samir are all very helpful and dealt with all aspects of my family matter very professionally. The communication is great, they return your calls and respond to emails promptly. Particularly enjoyed working with Sue who handled my ex-husband's requests via two channels (a family solicitor plus a conveyencing solicitor)exceptionally well not giving into his unreasonable demands and terms without citing any further dispute. Sue kept me updated regarding the cost all throughout the process and was very understanding and mindful of our needs as a family. My only regret is that I didn't find Aletta Shaw at the beginning of my divorce proceedings which would have saved me a lot of time, money and unnecessary stress. I can truly recommend this company, they are far superior to any other local firms.
I felt like the luckiest person to have chosen this company. My solicitor was Samir Moftah. He was attentive to every detail and extremely insightful and kind. He employed Kate Chidgey of 3 Temple Gardens on my behalf to be the barrister at the court hearing. She was brilliant and a splendid person also. The team looked after me royally at a difficult time and secured a positive result in a slightly tricky case. I highly recommend Aletta Shaw and Kate Chidgey of 3 Temple Gardens. My deepest thanks go to the team there.
Alleta Shaw incompetent Solicitors at its best.
This is possibly due to the company being run by a Managing Director that lacks attentiveness, intelligence, morals and ethics.
They are not able to even type up an invoice properly. That may seem like nothing….right?
It gets better..
Not recognising miss clauses within a contract, their own client had to points them out to them.
Not recognising or understanding the use of English used by third party to establish property is not signed off and will not be signed off anytime soon.
Not double checking details or information from client being forwarded on to them for the best interest of client and their own reputation.
(The above is just a few great factual examples of the service that they provided)
The big question is why ever Aletta Shaw?
Choose those that actually care.
You know what I learnt something new you can't put a price on piece of mind and when your dealing with the law you need the best to get the best to protect your reputation. Who you are, how far you've come and how far you have left to go.
I nearly gave up and I nearly gave in when you receive court papers for what they call 'fare evasion' and you read it - its just easier to surrender easier to give up.
But with the support of Samir his calm and quiet confidence kept me strong he knows what he is doing and he spared me from a criminal record which I will never forget as with one my dreams would of ended in front of me It got as bad as me having to re assess my career options no longer having the options to do what I love to do. if you ever find yourself in this situation your best defense - this man here get in touch he is money well spent.
I contacted Aletta Shaw as they seemed like a nice local solicitors firm and once I phoned them my expectations seemed correct. I needed to speak to someone about buying a commercial lease and after speaking to the Efe who deals with them I was confident that they were the right firm for me as they seemed quite knowledgeable and helpful. I needed to get a search from the Land Registry and It appeared that I was unable to get what I needed from the Land Registry website. Efe offered to buy this on my behalf for £24. The following week I phoned and paid for this fee and I assumed it would be a pretty straight forward procedure to obtain the information I needed. However pretty much after this I was left disappointed with the service. Every time I called to chase, Efe was not available, then when I did get hold of ger she informed me that another colleague was now dealing with it. Emilia eventually emailed me the documents however it did not have the information I needed and was not the correct document. I did email back and try to contact Efe but to no avail. Emilia did eventually contact me back and basically said they were doing me a favour and that I hadn't formally instructed them and if I needed more information I needed to pay more and formally instruct them. Which may be the case, however I made it very clear what I needed and therefor they should have either quoted me more or taken the hit and provided me what I asked for. The attitude was not impressive at all. I asked for Efe to call me back, which she did and her attitude was pretty much the same. At the end of the day, I was very specific in what I needed, they did not deliver this, were difficult to contact and then made excuses and made out I was unreasonable!
Also I want to mention, it took just one call to the Land Registry to find the information I needed for free! And to think they made me feel like I was asking the world of them and that I was being unreasonable!
When my wife passed away I decided to live nearer my daughter. A flat was found and I contacted Miss Ejaife to act for me in the purchase. I asked that all communications to be by post or telephone - this was accepted and a fixes fee agreed. All the searches, forms etc were promptly dealt with and the purchase completed. During this time I was preparing the family home for sale and Miss Ejaife again agreed to act for me. As I lived at both properties to prevent delays all the paper work was sent to both of them until the sale was completed. I wish to thank Miss Ejaife and her support staff for an excellent service.
This is the second time we have used Aletta Shaw and again did a great job. Last time we used Aletta Shaw ,they helped us with Probate after the loss of our mother. The situation got my wife and I thinking of creating a will which would be vital when either of us pass away in the future, protecting our family. Both the Probate and Will service was handled by Katrina impeccably and did a great job in working with the family and making sure all matters are dealt with accordingly. So a big thank you to Katrina and the Aletta Shaw team, I would not hesitate in recommending Aletta Shaw for their services to amyone
I have used the services of Aletta Shaw to set up my Father's Power of Attorney and do the conveyancing for his property. On both occasions Duncan Hall and Sue Carey were very helpful and supportive. Duncan's explanations of the process to be granted PoA were excellent and my father was very grateful for the time he took to do this. I would highly recommend these solicitors to family and friends. Thank you
During the past 16 months Aletta Shaw have dealt with my affairs re divorce, financial court orders and the sale and purchase of my properties. This was a very stressful time for me, but I found all the staff very supportive, empathetic and approachable. They would always talk to me if I visited the offices impromptu, or if I telephoned. I would like to thank Greg Tolliday for dealing with the finances of the divorce so efficiently. Also, a big thank you to Sue Carey for being so supportive with all the issues concerning the sale of the matrimonial home. Nothing was too much trouble. I could not fault Duncan Hall, who left the firm during the conveyancing process, or Sunjeet Banning, who replaced him, in their work towards completions. Finally, I thought their fees were very reasonable considering the high level of service they provided. I would certainly highly recommend the firm and would like to say a big 'thank you' to all who helped me through it all.
Aletta Shaw do excellent work, their customer service is great - very friendly and genuine - and their price is reasonable. They said they were confident they'd be successful with my case, and I trusted them, and they were. Everything was done within a few hours, faster than I could have imagined, and there were no complications. Great people and great company. I am very very pleased!
I used Aletta Shaw for legal advice through a very difficult time of my life. I dealt with Luke Dixon. I had two matters they were dealing with that coincided with one another. I felt much supported epically felt Luke had the human touch. The advice, support, and guidance given over the phone were impeccable. Luke’s understanding of my feelings and my cultural needs was remarkable. I would not hesitate to use the firm again or to recommend them to anyone.
