What my client says about me

"My company has referred conveyancing work to Slater Heelis for over 16 years and within the last 4 years I have also used them personally for commercial lease work.

Slater Heelis overall level of service is excellent, friendly, knowledgeable and quick to respond when required. Not necessarily the cheapest but always providing good value for money.

Ian Donnison is a particularly good conveyancer, pleasant disposition efficient in response. Chris Bishop is an excellent litigation Lawyer, extremely knowledgable, very believable, strength in character.

Sarah Calderwood and Tracey Guest are fantastic Employment Law Specialists, clinical, efficient and commercially aware.

Although Mike Fox is the Managing Partner he always makes time for the client, friendly and assured genuinely wants to make sure his firm does their very best for you. I believe that no firm in South Manchester can match Slater Heelis for the range of services they provide combined with their superior level of service. Slater Heelis are one of the few firms in the area that have embraced change, recognised the benefits of using technology, reacted to the market place and achieve growth in a challenging financial climate"
