PRACTICE

AREAS

Welcome to Serjeant & Son Solicitors. We are based in the historic market towns of Ramsey and Thetford, with strong ties in our local communities, providing legal services locally and nationally. Our aims are to offer a high quality service, give clear practical advice and cost effective solutions.

LITIGATION/DISPUTE RESOLUTION


We have experience of a wide range of civil actions. We are committed to achieving the best results for our clients. Our expertise includes contractual claims, contentious probate, consumer claims, employment, boundary disputes, property litigation, landlord/ tenant, debt collection and enforcement.

CONVEYANCING & PROPERTY

Whether you are buying your first home, or selling plots of your most recent development, property transactions should not be a stressful experience. This is why we work hard to ensure that your property transaction goes smoothly, with as little disruption to your everyday life as possible. We offer competitive fixed fees, with no hidden costs and are always on hand to advise you personally on any concerns you may have.

FAMILY

 

The breakdown of a relationship is difficult for all involved. Our clients appreciate the sensitive approach we take, as much as the realistic advice we provide. We deal with all aspects of Family Law including negotiating financial settlements, child contact and cohabiting couples. 

WILLS

Although it is not something that is pleasant to think about, when we pass away, often the one thing our loved ones will take comfort in is the fact that they are carrying out our wishes. At Serjeant & Son we can help you ensure those wishes are reflected in your Will in a way that truly protects the people that are important to you at a time when they will need it most.
