I had discussions with several other solicitors before talking with K J Smith. From the outset, K J Smith gave me by far the most confident and positive feeling. I was not disappointed.

Mr S, London

Thank you very much (Chris Sutton) for your help on getting me to the end of my divorce. I was thankful you got me back on track and kept me focused on the job in hand. Thank you also for your support at court, such a daunting time.

Mrs A Bartlett, Newbury

Dear Samantha (Archer), I would like to express my sincere appreciation and thanks for your assistance in my matter. The process was understood throughout due to your clarity and patience and your over-and-above help was invaluable during what was an overwhelmingly distressing time. To Kerry (Smith), thank you for your calm expertise in getting me through this with your wonderful team.

Mrs E Bird, Caversham

It has been one hell of a year, but I would like to take this opportunity to thank you [Matilda Pigneguy] for all your advice and calm support over the phone. You kept me on the straight and narrow and prevented me from also making any rash decisions.


Efficient and professional service with good communication throughout the whole process

Mr S, Sandhurst

You [K J Smith Solicitors Private Client team] were very patient throughout the whole process. We took a long time to respond and check the details at various stages…. but you remained friendly and polite.

I have all the confidence that Samantha [Archer] will act in my best interests. I have had consultations with other law firms before and I am so glad that I chose Samantha to act for me as otherwise the outcome would have been different! Thank you!

Mrs T Tie, Reading

5 Stars for service provided, 5 Stars for friendly staff, 5 Stars for clean and tidy offices and waiting area

Miss Lauren Smith, Essex

I would like once again to thank Joanna Oldman for her kind help in the making of my new will and being handy with the tissues if needed, it was much appreciated.


Appreciated face to face appointments being available at short notice. Really lovely offices! Friendly and knowledgeable solicitor dealing with our matter.

Mrs S and Mr R Russell, Reading

Very caring and professional – thank you. Special thanks to Sahil, a lovely caring individual. I cannot thank him enough for his support during this emotionally difficult time. He worked through and advised me every step of the way. The final results could not have been better. I couldn’t ask for a better lawyer to act on my behalf. Thank you Sahil and thank you K J Smith Solicitors.

Miss Sadia Malik, Reading

Excellent service, highly recommended.

Mrs Dorothy Eyre, Nottingham

K J Smith were excellent throughout my case from the first phone call to the end. They were always friendly, helpful and professional. I would recommend them to anyone

Mr M, Reading

K J Smith Solicitors were very friendly and I felt they had my best interests in mind – I had a lot of confidence in the advice they provided me with. I would use them again and strongly recommend their services


Samantha Archer and Matilda Pigneguy were extremely knowledgeable, professional and caring. They could always answer any questions and I felt they had my best interests in mind when communicating with my ex-husband and his solicitor. I would highly recommend them.

Mrs D, Henley on Thames

The staff were all very friendly during a difficult time for me. My divorce was not always pleasant but the advice and support I received helped me to buy my ex-partner out of my home and ensure my children and I were stable and happy. Thank you to all the Basingstoke team who helped me through this time.

Mrs M, Basingstoke

I had so much to sort out and was full of fear and trepidation. Meeting Jennifer Murray was the first step. She advised me the whole way. It was hard going sometimes but the end result was empowering and a great achievement. Without Jennifer I’m sure my life wouldn’t be as happy as it is now. Thank you.

Mrs L, Hook

I always found my solicitor (Samantha Archer) and all other staff very helpful and approachable. This was very important to me especially at this difficult time in my life.

Mr Martin Andrews, Henley on Thames

Very impressed with the service provided by Samantha Archer and Jason Lazard. Courteous, professional and compassionate in handling my divorce.

Mrs C Norris, Reading

We commissioned KJ Smith to act for my daughter through her divorce and found them to be a superb practice. Samantha Archer acted directly for her, she was extremely knowledgeable and helpful, with a very kind and understanding nature that helped no end through what was a stressful time. We have recently instructed the practice again in a Lasting Power of Attorney matter and are confident it will be dealt with in the same helpful and efficient manner

Mr Norman Staniford

Very quick and professional service. All sorted on time with good explanation

Ms B, Basingstoke

Chris Sutton dealing with the case was incredible. It is not just about winning or losing, it’s about the huge level of pressure removed from my shoulders, knowing that someone you can trust is dealing with everything. Could not be more thankful to him.

Mr Daryl Bishop, Wokingham

A very professional firm. Extremely happy with Karen O’Hara, who dealt with queries and matters with a fast and efficient approach.


I was made to feel comfortable and the people I met very quickly inspired confidence that they would act in my interests whilst keeping costs to a minimum. I've been very impressed.

I felt they genuinely cared about me as a person, not just a client.  They are a small team, and communication between them is excellent, whenever I called the person on the end of the phone knew who I was and what was happening in my case. …..something you wouldn’t get with a big firm.

It was a delight to be taken care of with full respect by someone who understood the delicacy of the situation.  I was nervous but with K J Smith staff I was made calm and all was resolved perfectly.
