“I often feel 5 star reviews look disingenuous but there is no lesser score I can give here. I cannot recommend Ellis Jones Solicitors highly enough. I have found them to be so extremely professional, reliable, and pro-active, that I have used them time and time again for various matters such as wills and probate. My Solicitor, William Dooley, has continued to surpass my expectations and I am very grateful for all the outcomes we have achieved thus far.”

“Once Ellis Jones took over my case things began to move. They were so friendly, helpful, understood the problem and dealt with it in a most expert and professional way. I cannot stress enough how grateful I am for the way William Dooley progressed my case to a successful conclusion. I highly recommend them. Thank you once again. Wendy Bradford”

“William Dooley was the exact help I was looking for. I was on a time crunch and William got back to me immediately. He looked at my questions and took me through them – step by step – in a clear way. I can’t recommend William more.”

The overall service from William Dooley and the staff at Ellis Jones has been outstanding They made the process stress free and achieved a great result. I would highly recommend them.”

“William Dooley is an absolute asset to Ellis Jones. Once instructed William Dooley was able to help me with a dispute which resulted in a succession. William is clearly a very intelligent individual, who is able to demonstrate that simply by the terminology he uses, and his attention to detail. One of the best investments I have made, was investing in William Dooley – Top Bloke. You pay for what you get for.”
