Mrs Steinberg

Ms Leasa Foster acted for us recently in the purchase of a flat. In brief, we found her excellent and certainly would use her services again if we needed to buy or sell. In more detail, there were no aspects of her work to criticize, but many that deserve praise: Friendly attitude, even though all our contact was via email. Promptness in dealing with our queries and requests. Vigilance. She refused to accept the vendor’s solicitor’s reassurance that was not reflected in the leasehold document of the property. Well-organised information system that allowed us to keep abreast of the progress of the transaction. Encouraging us to deal directly with the vendor rather than pass all communications through her, with resulting saving of time. Allowing the purchase process to remain dormant when we needed more time, but keeping in touch.

You need a Will, you're ready to make it But solicitors all look a bit samey. Take our advice, don't think twice. Phone Winstons and talk to Amy.

After looking around for a reliable solicitors I Opted for Winstons. Howard Cohen was my solicitor. He was genuine, honest, patient, gave me options and ensured throughout the whole process he kept me upto date with the progress. He was easily contactable and got back to me after any meetings he had. The pricing is fair and I feel like he went above and beyond to get my case resolved. The receptionists are all very polite and friendly too. I would definitely use this firm again should I need representing for anything else. Thanks for all your help Howard. Much appreciated.

Fantastic service provided by Paul Grindley, Employment Partner. Paul's expert knowledge of employment law gave me total confidence I'd chosen the right solicitor. Furthermore, he kept regular communication throughout my process, always responding the same day, delivering a positive outcome with no delay.

Mr & M

An outstanding solicitors firm. Every member of staff from reception to solicitor is highly professional yet friendly and supportive. Samantha Robertson-Strong and Aishah Yasin handled both the sale and purchase of our houses. There were a few problems that arose during the process, but these were handled and resolved (seemingly) effortlessly by this team. Since the buying/selling of a home can be a stressful affair, this level of experience and professionalism goes a long way in mitigating the stress. In all honesty, I cannot think of a single thing that could be done to improve the service. I subsequently recommended them to my son who has had the same positive experience. Winstons, it's a 10/10 from us. Many thanks!

Sidraa Razaq from Winstons Street Lane Leeds handled my conveyance. I would give her 6 stars if possible I have never had such good service from any firm of Solicitors. Sidraa answered every email not only on the day but often within minutes even those I sent out early/late evening. She kept me informed every step of the way and when we came across unforeseen problems just got on with it and sorted it. Brilliant Service

Appointment was arranged easily and quickly. The receptionist was courteous and the solicitor who dealt with us was extremely helpful. She explained all the aspects of the documentation process and in the next few days sent us a draft copy for review. After returning the draft we got an appointment to see her and formal completion of the files. Altogether it was a pleasant experience.

I have used Leasa Foster and her team twice within a year, I could highly recommend them. They are amazing and most importantly they are very efficient. I was reassured throughout my purchase and a sale of a property. I can understand how stressful it can become to find the best solicitor to take some of that stress away. I will always use them in the future and will recommend them to anyone who requires them.

My solicitor, Leasa Foster, was absolutely brilliant when I purchased my recent home. She was always contactable, helpful, super organised and efficient. Without her I don’t think the long chain would have completed as easily as it did; she was steps ahead of the other solicitors. Leasa is very personable and easy to work with. I have bought 4 houses in the past, and I have never had such a positive experience as this before.

September 2019 – I recently appointed Winston Solicitors to manage a house conveyancing process. From the outset, they have provided clear, concise and regular communication. In particular, offering constant guidance, available options when difficult circumstances arose and above all, in a friendly and yet very professional manner. I would have no hesitation in using their services again and personally thank Sidraa for her excellent service.

We recently instructed Mr. Howard Cohen of Messrs Winstons, solicitors. His advice was easy to understand and throughout the entire matter he was excellent in the service he provided. Indeed, not only did he prove to be extremely competent but he was also very kind and understanding. We are grateful to him - a real asset to Winstons!

Mr Chaggar

I'll be honest, I cringe when I need to use a solicitor. My own experience and that of friends has left me extremely mistrustful of the legal profession in its entirety. However, Leasa Foster has been an absolute joy to work with throughout our house move and we would have no hesitation in recommending her services. Right from the beginning she was brilliant. She laid out the path we would take very clearly and guided us every step of the way. If we needed to speak with her she was super responsive and always happy to explain things or guide us if we needed it. She was absolutely on top of everything, copying us into communications so that we could see where hold-ups were (e.g. with the vendor's solicitor) and take any action required. People are only transparent if they know they're acting honestly, effectively and efficiently and Leasa has been absolutely transparent the whole way through. We honestly can't recommend her highly enough. The whole legal profession would do to take some inspiration from her integrity and efficiency. Thank you Leasa and team.

I was recommended to use Winston's Solicitors I can honestly say thank you to the person who recommended Winston's to me. They have been brilliant and so helpful. Buying a leasehold property can take up to three months plus but mine was completed in weeks. Thank you Leasa can't believe great you have been.

Winston Solicitors were absolutely fantastic with dealing with the purchase of my house. As a first time buyer I was immensely worried about the conveyancing process; it sounded convoluted and confusing, and although it is a mystifying process, Leasa and the team at Winston Solicitors made it clear and easy at each stage of the purchase. Their prices were incredibly competitive compared to other firms, and the service I received was impeccable. I am 100% satisfied with Winston Solicitors and would recommend them to anyone if you want a friendly but professional service who are immediate in getting back to any enquiries.

I received a Termination Agreement from my ex-employers and needed a Solicitor. I looked on line at a few but chose Winston Solicitors as they had very good reviews. I rang and was transferred to Paul Grindley. I explained the purpose of my call and then emailed a copy of the Agreement to him. From there, it was over to him! An excellent service, very straight forward. I have no hesitation in recommending them.

Samantha Robertson-Strong was our conveyancing solicitor for a recent house move. As first-time buyers, we were unsure of some of the process but Samantha provided excellent support and advice throughout. Ultimately, for various reasons, our house buying process was extremely lengthy including a several month wait for probate documents. Samantha was extremely proactive and worked hard to get our sale completed. She and her assistant, Aishah, were always available to provide advice and despite the extra work we were not charged anything further to our original quote. I would definitely recommend Samantha and Aishah to others.

I had to find a solicitor local to myself to go through a redundancy package I had been offered from my place of work. I contacted Winstons and I met a really nice solicitor Paul Grindley who went through the paperwork with me and agreed a good offer. I then signed this with him and it was sent back to work. I was happy with his advice and would contact him again if needed in the future.

We couldn’t have chosen a better solicitor for the sale and purchase of our houses. Leasa is incredibly organised, professional and absolutely lovely to deal with.

Would highly recommend Winstons and Leasa in particular.

Excellent work and support from our solicitor Samantha and her colleague Aishah. We really couldn't fault them. They were ahead of the other solicitors in the chain at every turn, and turned up important queries on the sale that we know were missed when our vendors previously bought the house. They were also always super responsive and gave really clear advice. Highly recommend them, we will be using Winstons for any future move.

Would highly recommend Winstons for Conveyancing, Samantha and Aishah made purchasing our first house as pain free as possible. They continually kept us up to date and made things very simple. I was told before buying a house that the biggest problems would come from the solicitors, either everyone was lying to me or Winstons are a different breed. Again I couldn't recommend them enough.

Samantha was brilliant from start to finish. She worked hard to keep the buyer and their solicitors moving when things started to drag on, and was very thorough in keeping me well informed. In addition, I have found it very easy to get in contact with her in comparison to other solicitors. I have the impression that Winstons focus on quality of service rather than quantity of sales and this is still at a competitive price. Will definitely use the again.

I found thinking about writing my first Will daunting, so many things to think about and lots of things I hadn't thought about, on top of that I'm a very busy person. Mr Cohen was very patient, explained the process to me. Made sure it was my wishes that were included in the Will. Gave me good advice which I really appreciated. Put me at my ease. Got the job done with care and understanding. I prefer local companies especially ones like Winston that give back to the community they serve.

Winston solicitors LLP pursued my criminal injury claims vigoriously and followed it up to make sure the claims was accepted and processed.

It should not have taken more that 6 months but it did. Winston Solicitor has done an enormous and good work for me, of which i am grateful. Many thanks.
