Howard Cohen's Testimonials

Howard Cohen Client Feedback

Excellent work on probate and conveyancing February 2020

Dealing with Howard I always felt as though I was dealing with a friend not just a Legal Adviser.
The particular circumstances of this case meant that factual information was secure. Howard did an excellent job of finalising out the necessary details with very little to go on. The Conveyancing team were also excellent at settling my mind at rest over worries concerning the property sale.

Mr & Mrs Day, Leeds

Unexpected outcome for disheartened divorce client October 2016

My divorce is complicated. My husband has all of our assets. He and the assets are in Cyprus. To be honest I thought I would get nowhere, the whole situation was so disheartening and looked hopeless. Howard Cohen is my solicitor. He is so approachable and easy to speak to. Howard carefully listens then advises a way forward. I am still in the throes of the divorce procedure, however, after Howard studied the situation, I took his advice and unbelievably my husband has transferred some funds (definitely due to me) to my bank account. I can honestly say I did not expect him to do so. I have no hesitation at all recommending Howard Cohen and Winston Solicitors

Family law matter dealt with smoothly for overseas client August 2016

I thought that this would be really difficult to deal with as I live and work overseas whilst the matter was being dealt with in the UK and everything had to be done remotely. However, after a brief Skype conversation, Howard agreed to take the matter on and everything went almost seamlessly. All the information was dealt with very efficiently and all the options were made clear to me. Howard provided relevant and timely advice that made things go smoothly. Just a slight technical hitch with the payment portal that caused me a couple of minor problems but this was soon corrected by the IT chap. Great service from Howard and the rest of the staff at Winston Solicitors and I will certainly use them again in the future if the need arises.
