We pride ourselves on our client care and satisfaction. Take a look at what our clients say about our services...

Kim and Bethany both gave excellent service. They were friendly and approachable and took ace to ensure our needs were met – both my wife and I are deaf and can struggle with communication sometimes but Kim and Bethany both made sure we were comfortable and understood everything.  Mr K

Just like to say a big thank you to Clair for her time and professional expertise today. We will definitely use her again in the future and recommend her and the company to family and friends. Lee Caygill

Jenna and Charlotte have been amazing from start to finish, especially with keeping us up to date. Each person we’ve dealt with from this firm has been so pleasant and polite making the whole situation so much easier. Thanks again. Petula Clark

We would like to thank Jenna for helping us through a very stressful time with the sale of two properties and the purchase of one. Also, many thanks for helping smooth out a problem we have with the land registry. We came to TMJ Legal Services after receiving poor service from another solicitor. I cannot praise the professionalism of the team enough. Gale Robinson 

Gabrielle and her team are fantastic would highly recommend. Very on the ball and quick with responses. We were recommended TMJ after being let down by the recommended solicitors from the estate agents and used them for our house move as a first time buyer. Gabrielle explained everything to be able to understand easily, she gave regular updates and was always very professional and happy to help. We faced numerous teething issues with other solicitors not being as compliant however I can happily say that Gabrielle and her team were. Cannot fault in any way shape or form and would definitely recommend or use again. Thank you again for your hard work, patience and dedication to our case and for making the process as smooth as possible. Michaela Hope

Kim's [Johnson] service was excellent. She kept us informed by email and was available by telephone when necessary.

Jenna Hoban’s warm, welcoming and helpful manner immediately put us at ease and her excellent attention to detail, efficiency and professionalism established our confidence and trust in her and the company. Overall, a first class service. Thank you.

All staff were so helpful I can’t thank you enough.

When Clair Dunkerley was stuck in traffic returning from Durham, Catherine Donworth stepped in for us to sign our wills and she explained everything clearly and simply (legal jargon into everyday meaning).

Thank you for helping me in such a difficult time. Very much appreciated.

TMJ’s Chris Parker acted for us in the sale of our house. Hassle free experience with great communication, we would highly recommend this legal firm. Denise Moore

Outstanding Service from start to finish, many thanks to Chris Parker, Lucy and Gabrielle. Clive Shotton

We used TMJ legal services when selling and purchasing our new house and we received fantastic service from everybody involved with the purchase.

We would definitely recommend and use TMJ legal services again. Lou C

I have used this solicitor for a number of house moves including buying my first home. Affordable, friendly and explained everything, as well as regular updates. Can't recommend them enough. Mark Chambers

Very pleased with the service given. Ann Wilson was most helpful from the first telephone call to completion as was her PA, Jan. Carol Hammond

Phew… just completed the flat purchase contract on the last day before our mortgage offer expires. Could not have achieved that without Jenna Hoban and her team’s efficient work on the case.

No hesitation to recommend this firm to anyone, especially local folks who want a trustworthy, straightforward solicitor in the neighbourhood! Maggie & Jimmy

It has been a pleasure dealing with the staff of TMJ. Efficient, professional and always at the end of a phone if needed. A big thank you for resolving this in such a short period of time. Wilfred Charles Alderton

Erin was polite and professional at all times. K.W. Collingwood

Highly recommend TMJ Legal Services for all things conveyancing-related. We have recently just sold and purchased a new house through them. Ann has provided excellent advice and is very knowledgeable. All communications have been in a timely manner which has ensured as clients, we have been fully up to date throughout the process. Jan has been amazing, regularly contacting us and sending us communications to read and review. Conveyancing procedures can be stressful, but with Ann and Jan on the case, they have ensured the process completed smoothly for us with a quick turnaround. Well done. A credit to TMJ! Amy

Friendly welcome and service from your receptionist. Very efficient, great communication and very helpful.

Catherine [Donworth] made a stressful situation much easier to cope with as she was so pleasant and kept in communication at all times. I would highly recommend TMJ to anyone.

The purchase of my home was anything but straightforward. The need to complete by the end of the holiday on Stamp Duty and the inefficiency and dilatoriness of the vendor’s solicitor placed a lot of pressure on Kim and I am extremely grateful to her for achieving a successful outcome.

Catherine Donworth is very thorough in her work to the last detail.

We had no complaints whatsoever, it was the best service we have had from solicitors.

Very happy with the services of TMJ. I dealt with Kim [Johnson] and she was very good. Everything went well so just keep doing things to the same standard.

Initial professional discussion on Wills & property. Thorough, realistic, pitfalls and practical advice, direction and guidance given. A L

Excellent services, especially from Lucy and Chris! House purchase went smoothly with no issues, Highly recommend. Cora Hubbert

I would like to extend my gratitude by saying THANK YOU! once more to Ann Wilson at (Residential Conveyancing Department) TMJ Legal Services. Thank you for carrying out the sale of my property. Thank you for your phenomenal efforts in completing the sale of my property and with such smooth communications and very punctual. I have worked with Ann Wilson before on several occasions regarding properties, and I am quite annoyed that this was my first review left. From our first engagement 6 years ago until present, the service Ann Wilson always provides is forever lasting with you. Due to the quality of her work and her care and respect towards clients, I will return to TMJ Legal Services even if it is years later. She treats you with dignity and respect.

My partner and I would like to say a huge thank you to Chris and Gabrielle for making the process of moving into our first home run so smoothly. We would highly recommend them for conveyancing. Lauren Burton

First used TMJ many years ago when I worked in Hartlepool and they are still my solicitors, although I now live in Northumberland. They have bought and sold several houses for me and recently my husband and I had our wills drafted. I can still deal with the same people I dealt with years ago which, to me, is a real bonus and as always the advice and service I receive is always professional and timely - absolutely no complaints. Dora Kewin

I have used Pauline at Peterlee office twice last year for Conveyancing matters. Both times she was very efficient. Highly recommend her. All the staff at the Peterlee office were helpful at all times. Jackie Kennedy

Amazing service and support from the Durham Branch, especially from Jenna and Charlotte, thanks for everything. Mark Burgess

Friendly, helpful, understanding. Chris Mosey

After my mother and sister used Kim from the Durham office to buy their homes, myself and my partner got in touch when we were looking to buy our first home. We put our offer in at the start of March, pre-lockdown thankfully but had no idea the setbacks and delays that would cause us. Thankfully Kim handled that for us, and made sure that everything we could have done was ready to go as soon as we could progress. Not only was it a challenging time, we also didn’t know the process and what was involved in buying a house. Kim guided us every step of the way - super quick at replying to emails. So professional but personal too, and really made the whole process stress free for us. Really affordable for the service received, Kim went above and beyond for all of us. Thanks so much, The Wardles. Louise Wardle

We were very impressed with the Peterlee office. Pauline Hunter was very efficient and most helpful. The receptionist was very pleasant and sociable. Very happy with the service provided. Mrs Olive Shafto

Your services are five stars. I highly recommend Lyn Ryan. She is very professional and an asset to your company. Mrs R

Jenna Hoban was always pleasant and very helpful. I haven’t had much experience with legal matters, but she put my mum at ease. She is a very kind person. N.E. Kendrick

Nicholl represented us in a family matter and we found she was very professional and would go out of her way. She kept us up to date every step of the way and nothing was too much trouble for her as we have never dealt with this matter before she explained everything along the way. TMJ are lucky to have a brilliant solicitor in Nicholl. Her receptionists were also on hand whenever we needed to speak to her and they have kept us informed with all the correspondence. I would recommend this solicitor to anyone and use them again if needed. Katy Rowledge 

Receptionists were always friendly and courteous. Pauline Hunter was always available to answer my queries.

Good value, highly competitive rates.

Pauline explained everything thoroughly and made us feel at ease with the selling and buying process.

Pauline Hunter has helped me through a very difficult 12 months.

Amanda explained everything in great detail to myself and my sister and answered all of our questions, therefore we understood the whole process required by us, including any future requirements. Amanda was very professional but also carried out the whole process in a welcoming, approachable manner.

Catherine Donworth was very efficient, great communication and very helpful.

Honestly amazing firm and genuinely lovely, helpful staff. Chris Parker was acting for us with our first house purchase, and his assistant Lucy MacPherson was great at answering our phone calls and emails. We had been previously let down by another solicitor and TMJ were so understanding and kept us updated throughout. Overall the process was hassle free and for a fantastic price too. We want to say thank you to Lucy and Chris for helping us buy our first home and would recommend them to anyone in the future! Shelby McCormack

Fantastic service, very professional! Chris has been very responsive and reliable for my purchase. I cant thank him enough as kept me in the loop throughout. Thanks once again and if I ever buy another house you're getting the call!! Carl Rodgerson

I hope to do business with Ann Wilson again in the near future. The service and integrity was above and beyond expectations. I would definitely recommend Ann Wilson at (Residential Conveyancing Department) TMJ Legal Services Solicitors firm for anyone buying or selling property/properties to act for them. THANK YOU ANN !!!

Durham branch have treated us (husband and I) very well and, despite me being in a wheelchair, made every effort to make the writing of new Wills as easy as possible. From our first facetime call with Jenna Louise Hoban (Solicitor) to receiving our copy Wills (signed and witnessed) has only been two weeks. Respectful, caring and professional team of people ensured that our requests went smoothly and we have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone. Carole Forster

We would thoroughly recommend TMJ Legal Services. Kim in the Durham office did the conveyancing for our house sale and purchase in autumn 2020. Every aspect of the service was first class: good professional advice, excellent attention to detail, regular communications, and good liaison with all the other parties involved. This enabled us to move within 3 months from advertising, even with the background of the pandemic. Sheila & Richard Alty
