I came to K J Smith Solicitors for advice and legal support relating to financial proceedings. Matthew Thom was fantastic. He was incredibly knowledgeable and very understanding… I would 100% use his legal services again.


Chris Sutton was focused and effective whilst being incredibly understanding. He provided me with invaluable advice throughout.


The whole process from start to finish was very well explained and our meetings and tele-cons made everything very clear. Sam [Archer] was very approachable, no questions or concerns were too small or insignificant. I would definitely recommended KJS.


Extremely professional and compassionate at the same time while going through a difficult process. Consistently gave sound legal advice and guidance


I am very appreciative of all the help and advice I was given by Matthew [Thom]


I know without a shadow of a doubt that [Chris Sutton’s] expertise and knowledge will mean once more that my voice will be heard… words cannot express my gratitude to you. I know that if any of my friends find themselves in a difficult family situation you will be the solicitor I recommend


Sam (Archer) assisted me through my divorce proceedings. She was very professional, thorough and listened to what I wanted. She made potentially a difficult situation seamlessly efficient and hassle free. I would definitely use Sam again.


Needless to say I am thrilled and relieved. Monika was really supportive and so helpful, please thank her for me.


Kerry was very proactive in sorting things out – thank you!


Thank you for dealing efficiently with our requirements.


Sam made a personal effort to get everything sorted out.


I have found Kerry Smith and her team, compassionate understanding and focussed on achieving the best possible outcome for myself and my child. Dealing with a bitter custody dispute is never easy and I felt as if I have a trusted confidant helping and guiding me through what can be a very stressful situation. We have always discussed the options and possible outcomes and always decided on the best course of action focussing on the needs and feelings of my son. As a single father I would have no issues personally recommending KJ Smith to any mum or dad wanting the best for their child.


I found that on every phone call, everyone was helpful.


I am very grateful to everyone at K J Smith for their hard work and good natured support during a challenging time.

Thank you to all the Basingstoke team who helped me through this time.

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.
