Your approach was professional, with an understanding of the finer points of the case and you went beyond my expectations. Also, I would like to thank you for your ‘First Class’ efforts in this matter.
You stood by me and argued my corner right to the end. I was really pleased to avoid a court case too, as that would have been really stressful.
Mr Patrick, Northamptonshire
The guidance and support we received from David and his colleagues was excellent, both in the advice we were offered and the guidance through the process. He was able to help us make the right decisions without making the decision for us, which we found both helpful and empowering.
Paul Taylor, Great Park Street Methodist Church
Impressed with how quickly and efficiently you deal with complicated disputes. We are extremely happy with the friendly and local service.
Heather Gout, Total Computer Network
Without your guidance and ready advice we would have been unable to deal with the events as they unfolded. You were always there at the end of the phone to assure us and help us to understand the options open to us and to clarify the situation.
Mr & Mrs Brown
Obtained excellent advice very quickly in plain English. David farmer took over all correspondence and settled my case very efficiently.
Mr John Robert Townsend
Thanks very much for your support during a difficult time for me. I will certainly call on you whenever in need.
David Farmer has recently brought to a successful conclusion a Judgement Order for ourselves. David came to the case some twelve months ago when the property concerned was put up for sale.
David has conducted the subsequent negotiations with total professionalism keeping us up to date with any developments. We also asked David in his initial contact with the deceased family to be sympathetic and this was handled with great compassion. We would have no hesitation in recommending David’s work to anybody.
Paul and Kim Blake
I used David Farmer in a Company / Commercial / Litigation dispute. He was excellent, explaining the process throughout and achieving a great result. I would have no hesitation in using Wilson Browne again
Very understanding, honest and realistic regarding my options and the relevant risks involved. Kept me updated at all times, always ready to listen and give supporting advice. I have no reservations on recommending David Farmer’s professional services.
Ms Deborah Roberts
Thank you David. I would most certainly recommend your services in future. I valued your honest opinion when advising me and I knew it was a risk. Sometime you have to put fears behind you and push for what you are entitled. It was the right and just outcome. Thanks once again to you and the rest of your team.

David Farmer acted quickly and we were immediately reassured by his manner and sound legal advice. He kept us fully informed and acted promptly. The matter was quickly resolved in our favour.
