What Our Clients Say About Us On Google


My motorcycle was stolen from my home and so I had to make a claim from my insurance policy. Unfortunately owing to a supposed issue with the policy my own insurer was only offering a fraction of what the motorbike was worth. I found Lacey Solicitors on google and after they reviewed the policy, they wrote to the insurer to sort it out. Then they worked with the Financial Ombudsman Office to get it resolved. Got a great result with the insurance company paying the real value of the bike which was thousands more than what was initially offered. Highly recommend. Very responsive and easy to talk to

Ruaidhri Austin has been an awesome solicitor to our case. He kept in touch throughout the whole process, reassured answered all questions we had.
