"Jamie was very friendly & professional. Jamie was very quick at getting my will sorted & it was a pleasure doing business with her. I would highly recommend her."

"I am only too pleased to thank Miss Jamie Dobbs for the way she dealt with firstly my Mothers Estate and then My Will, always very professional and caring. I just knew I would get on well with her the very first second that I met her. Always had all the information at hand and took the time to explain things clearly in a cool, calm and collective manner. During a very stressful time it was nice to be dealing with such a lovely person."

Nothing seemed too much trouble even chasing the long lost siblings to ensure no stone was left unturned. An extremely excellent service thank you."

"Over the last forty years I have cause to deal with many law firms both in a personal and professional capacity, including some ‘top’ London Companies. In all of those dealings I have never found anyone as proactive and so willing to offer help and advice as Jamie Dobbs. During the last two years Jamie guided my parents through the completion of Lasting Powers of Attorney. Helped myself with the use of the LPA and recently dealing with Probate and Estate Administration following their death. To deal with someone with Jamie’s patience, kindness and professionalism is so unusual and has made a very difficult time quite easy for myself and my family. Thank you."

In addition she was extremely patient and understanding of a difficult matter. The home visits made the completion much easier particularly when dealing with clients with restricted mobility."

Jamie possessed a calm, efficient persona at all our meetings during 2015. Her pleasant, personality was a source of support for myself and my family at a very difficult time of bereavement and grieving. I wish to thank all staff at Maples for their courteous, efficient manner while I was in contact with the company."

"I saw Miss Jamie Dobbs to make a new Will.  Jamie was on time, friendly and listened to what I wanted.  She immediately made me feel at ease.  She was also very efficient, sending me a copy of my draft Will via email later the same day.  I would highly recommend her."

"Jamie was very professional and explained the legal words in a way that we could understand.  We were treated courteously and respectfully at all time.  Would definitely recommend these Solicitors."
