James graduated from Southampton University with an LLB (Hons).  James went on to study at the College of Law Guildford obtaining a distinction.  He qualified as a solicitor in 2013 and has been working in the Hailsham area since shortly after qualification.

James’ strengths lie in building good relations with all parties involved in a transaction. He believes strongly in keeping everyone up-to-date with progress.

James also works methodically to ensure matters are progressed as efficiently as possible.


James prides himself on providing cost effective solutions to his clients’ specific needs. He is prepared to look at situations logically and vary from the standard course of action where the situation requires.

James understands that legal jargon can be unclear and frustrating.  He uses plain English and is happy to discuss any points which are not clear.

Thanks for James and Vicki’s help with the purchase of the land we recently completed on.  They were both extremely helpful and approachable.

James is the ultimate professional.  Entirely customer focused and approachable.  His calm manner helps to avoid potential stress arising.  He is superbly supported by Vicki.  No hesitation in recommending.

Not having moved for over 30 years we were a bit apprehensive but everything was made very clear and understandable in plain English.

Both James and all staff were excellent.

Everyone we met at the firm was pleasant and approachable.

I found all staff approachable and friendly.  James was always very helpful and friendly.

I have and will continue to highly recommend James.  He was brilliant and very helpful and prompt in responding to my emails.

James as always, professional, approachable, always communicative.

Just to say that James and his colleague were a pleasure to deal with.  Prompt, courteous and approachable.

A refreshing honest and simple approach to selling a house.

I would just like to say how pleased we were with James, he was always on the ball and very quick to respond to e-mails and phonecall.

This was the first time we have gone through this process and it was good.  Things were explained well and any questions we had were answered well.  Very friendly and approachable.

From the outset James was approachable, knowledgeable and keen. Nothing was too trivial for him and the level of service was excellent. One particular example was when he noticed an error in the Land Registry map of the new house which was a result of the previous owner having litigation issues with the neighbouring land owner. He dealt with it very firmly with the owners solicitors and the correct outcome was finalised quite quickly.

To sum up he made the legal process seem straight forward and acceptable to someone who has not bought or sold for about 20 years. He is a credit to your company.

We appreciated the efficient, professional and helpful service.  Thank you.

I would always use James.  He was excellent in every way.  Could not of asked for anyone better to deal with my sale.  Thank you.

Thank you for all your help and determination to find answers and keep pushing the other side.  A fab service.

An excellent service.  Very professional and approachable.

James is always very approachable and always gives me every confidence that he will deal with my case quickly and extremely efficiently.

James and Vicki were amazing as there was a tight deadline on the completion date of our house purchase.  Always available to calm our nerves!!!

James was supported by Vicki during the sale and purchase process.  They were approachable at all times and nothing was too much effort.  James is the ultimate professional and I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending him.  You will not be disappointed.
