    Absolutely Amazing - Open 7 Days a Week 9.00 am - 9.00 pm

    Commercial Litigation Matter
    We originally instructed Michelle Niaz and Asaf Niaz at Lewis Mitchell Solicitors on a commercial matter and we were very surprised at the speed the matter was dealt with, the approachability of the solicitor dealing with the matter and plain speaking English. It came as a pleasant surprise that I could speak direct to the solicitor dealing with the matter up to 9.00 pm 7 days a week. The confidence and trust that has built up in the original case has given us the confidence to instruct Lewis Mitchell Solicitors on a variety of personal and commercial matters and the initial fast and personal service has continued with a variety of different solicitors at the firm we are now dealing with. We look forward to working with Lewis Mitchell Solicitors going forward on several matters and would highly recommend to others.

  • Vicktoria Mousley
    I used Lewis Mitchell Solicitors to sell my house. Right from the outset they were professional and helpful - taking time to explain to me the process and what was involved. We were kept informed the whole time by Michelle and her team and Michelle was fantastic at chasing up our buyer’s solicitor who wasn’t being particularly fast at handling any communication. Michelle was on hand at all times able to deal with enquiries and questions that we had and I would not hesitate to use them again in the future. Many thanks for all your hard work. We love our new home and we are delighted how smoothly our sale went through.
