Brendan has substantial local knowledge of Bath and the surrounding area and this is invaluable in his conveyancing work. He has wide experience in all aspects of residential and commercial conveyancing, leasehold property, transfer of equity, re-mortgages and tenancy agreements.

He is widely respected in the wider community in Bath having been a former rugby player for both Bath and Somerset and he is a past President of the Bath Rugby Club.

"As Partner of this long established firm I firmly believe that despite the rapidly changing legal and economic environment there is an important place for a law firm such as ourselves who really understand and empathise with our clients' needs".

He qualified as a solicitor in 1977 and specialises in Property Law and Probate and is also a Member of the Society of Trusts and Estate Practitioners (STEP).

Having lived in Bath for most of his life, David has extensive knowledge of the area which is a great asset when dealing with conveyancing matters; particularly to clients moving into the area. His client base is not just in Bath but all over the Country, including London.

Away from the office David maintains his interest in rugby, particularly supporting junior rugby clubs.

"Complications can arise in any conveyancing transaction, be it large or small, and it is advisable to use an experienced, regulated Solicitor who can spot the 'pitfalls' on your behalf and ensure that your purchase or sale proceeds smoothly and correctly."

"I enjoy helping families in the local community. My work involves dealing with clients who are going through a divorce, or preparing Wills and obtaining Probate when someone has died. These can be distressing times for clients and I make sure that I never lose sight of this fact in the way that I carry out my job."


Justine AlfordSTEP

Justine Alford - Partner

Justine Alford qualified as a solicitor in 1998 and has since had an extensive amount of experience in her specialised areas of work including Estate Administration, Wills, Lasting Powers of Attorney and some Trust Administration.

She is also a Member of the Society of Trusts and Estate Practitioners (STEP) and Solicitors for the Elderly (SFE).

'I am so glad I work for a firm which is entirely genuine in its focus on client care. This is reflected in the long-standing relationships that the partners have with many of their clients and the fact that new clients are soon put at ease when they walk through the door.'

Justine lives in the Bath area with her husband and two children. She is an active member of her local community and enjoys gardening and going on long walks with the dog.
