What people say about me

‘Shelley Chesworth is outstanding. Her work is top-class and her knowledge of the law is unbelievable. Over the last two years, she has gone the extra mile for me, working weekends when needed and has always been available day and evenings for me to contact her on her mobile.’


‘Shelley Chesworth has impressed me highly – she is a little gem amongst lawyers. She is always on hand to reassure and give good advice, no matter how busy she is. She goes beyond what she needs to and has even taken time to advice and reassure out of office hours and weekends. She does a brilliant job for a fair price, not taking advantage of the situation to make money. She is very professional and very intelligent.


‘I would like to thank you for all the help you have given my daughter in helping her out of her situation. She is much happier now and we both appreciate everything you have done.’


‘Shelley Chesworth listens to clients with compassion and understanding and is realistic with her approach and feedback to the client giving good honest advice. A trustworthy solicitor with high morals and ethics. Knowledgeable with current up to date advice.’
