Thank you for all your help during the last few years. It has been a long road with many fears and heartaches. One thing is for sure...our journey would have been much more difficult without your ongoing help, advice and guidance along the way..

Having "an angel on our shoulders" gave us hope that all would turn out well... and it has... thank you so much.

Excellent and professional service, I have used Pickerings for three decades - both business and personal.

We have recently been involved in writing a new will with Pickerings included in which was a trust for  our property.

We now think of Pickerings as our solicitors. Many thanks.

I would not hesitate to recommend Pickerings in any matter. Total professional service in all matters. 10 out of 10 for all staff.

D.P 14 November 2019


We have used Pickerings in various departments. On this particular occasion, we were looked after by Emma Harrison and the Probate team. This is never an easy time for a client, and, in our case, with no will available, it could have been difficult. With Emma and Pickerings, every step was explained and discussed. We made our own decisions from the advice we were given. Every cost along the way was made clear as was every possible delay (there weren't any). When emotions came to the fore, sympathy, time and space were allowed. When probate was dealt with, we were given advice concerning Lasting Powers of Attorney which was acted on. Emma and Pickerings really cared for us and we have no hesitation in recommending their services.

G.Hardwell 13 November 2019


My case for me was very distressing but Pickerings (Jonathon) was always kind and supportive and professional.

13 November 2019


Pickerings have been very professional and helpful in resolving the dispute I had with my employer. They are friendly and courteous and put me at ease during a difficult time.

U. S 01 November 2019


I was made to feel welcome and Ashley made everything so relaxing. She was so nice and patient.

Mrs G 22 October 2019


From the beginning you are greeted by a friendly, smiling and welcoming face on reception; quietly efficient and helpful. We started in Probate with Emma Harrison; sympathetic, understanding, clear advice, never hurried, felt like we were discussing matters with a friend. We have already recommended her to colleagues and friends. We also needed conveyancing with neither sale nor purchase within the local area. Alexa Holgate provided us with clear, friendly and efficient advice; she chased everyone everywhere to keep us on track.

Mr and Mrs H October 2019


Very happy to recommend Pickerings ; everyone we have met has been professional yet friendly! - Excellent service!

Mr D 01 October 2019


'Service was amazing, our sale was a long and tough one, but we got there in the end. Peter was there every step, chasing, phoning and E-mailing. Made us feel at ease when signing papers, ensured we understood everything. Any queries he was either E-mailing straight back or phoning. Amazing service'

Ms C September 2019


Pickerings dealt with my case in the most professional manner. Both the lawyers who dealt with my case communicated with me promptly and were happy to provide advice when asked. I would gladly recommend and use Pickerings again in the future. 

Mr R 18 September 2019

Mr D 27 March 2019

I felt I had a member of family that I could talk to about my Will. One that understood my needs and worries for the future and helped me to make the right decision for the best of my family.

Mrs S 11 June 2018


In my opinion Pickering Solicitors is an excellent company. The staff were very polite and helpful, everything went smoothly with no problems. Everything was explained in a way that I understood and now I have peace of mind that everything is in order should circumstances arrive.

PW 19 January 2018


Excellent service from beginning of probate process to the end. Also had experience of their Will writing and this was also excellent and as this was for my elderly mother. The home service was brilliant in the solicitor that came out to her home took time to explain everything in a way that a 93-year-old understood.

Would have no worries of recommending your company to friends or family, or indeed using your company in the future thank you for all your help and assistance

We used Pickerings, namely Lucy, for the estate of my late aunt and more recently the writing of my Will. I cannot fault the service I have received. Communication has been excellent and everything explained in terms I understood

I cannot knock the service I received. Lucy made a difficult time and situation a lot easier thanks again for your excellent service.

Pickerings dealt with my mother's estate, the selling of her home and dealing with her assets. I felt it was handled well from start to finish.

R.P 2nd January 2018


Pickering Solicitors are very professional and friendly throughout. I received the help and advice I needed promptly, courteously, efficiently and compassionately. The advice was clear and I was kept informed every step of the way. I would highly recommend them. also they are based on a modern office building with free parking in their own private landscaped, gated site and car park. Excellent location.

30th October 2017

We are a medium sized business striving to effectively manage the many challenges presented to it by the various statutory bodies. After utilising a national HR advisory service for many years it was a little scary to change direction and start working with a local firm of solicitors. But we needn’t have worried. Within days of signing up with Pickerings our policies and procedures were being vetted and advice offered on how we might improve.

Knowing that there is help at the end of the telephone is a great comfort. If I contacted our previous provider they invariably quoted text at me or drowned me in information overload. Pickerings take the time to get to know the business, and you, and offer peace of mind at the end of the day. In HR we are working with our most valuable asset - our people, but its not always plain sailing. Pickerings are there to ensure we are managing our workforce in a professional and equitable manner, which can only be good for all within the business.

We are in our second year with the company and have no hesitation in recommending them. Make the change and see the benefits.

R.W, April 2014

Pickerings have stayed with us every step of the way through a difficult and, at times, an emotionally draining, settlement agreement process, lasting several weeks. Their calm and timely approach has enabled us to make good progress and finally to bring about an appropriate settlement. Any query no matter how small or complex, was dealt with quickly and efficiently and we felt completely supported all the way through. I would recommend their service to any employer.

10th December 2013 - K.D


Can I just thank you formally for your sterling efforts on our behalf. Not only did you have to put up with interminable delays, but you pulled the deal back from the brink! May I compliment you both on your total professionalism.

Pickerings' Commercial Team managed the sale of Ventura Park Volkswagen in Tamworth and Sutton Coldfield. Craig Davies led the deal, with Sue Albini handling the property elements. Commenting on the team's skill in holding the deal together in this difficult economic climate, P.D

The work was carried out in a sympathetic, friendly manner and with the highest degree of professional integrity. Craig, Sue and the Commercial Team did a fantastic job. In a transaction like this, it helps to get to know the people who are acting for you and to feel that they treat you as an individual. They treated me as a valued client, and provided a service tailored exactly to our needs, updating me at every step of the way. I would be happy to use Pickerings again for any other legal issues that come up in the future.

Pickerings’ Commercial Team recently handled the sale of the entire issued share capital of Shearer (Mormet) Ltd, acting on behalf of the four exiting shareholders. Shearer (Mormet) Ltd operate in the recycling of scrap metals and metal alloys, with a turnover in excess of £12 million. The transaction was complicated by the fact that the company was Scottish registered and held property in Scotland, which involved cross referral with Scottish-based lawyers. Craig Davies, Head of the Corporate & Commercial Team led the deal, with property advice being provided by Sue Albini and employment advice by Simon King. On the successful completion of the deal and the shareholder’s decision to choose Pickerings Solicitors to advise them, Phil Hollins, one of the selling shareholders, commented.
