What People Are Saying

Hear what some of our clients have to say about Mercers Solicitors...

I just want to thank you again for all your help… we couldn’t have placed ourselves in more trusting, caring hands than your good kind self. It was great we had the opportunity to meet you when we did Alex!

Mrs A from Maidenhead

Peter has gone above and beyond with his informative, sympathetic and extremely wise advice.

Mrs H of Oxfordshire

We should like to place on record our appreciation of the highly professional and yet patient and stress-free manner in which Mercers have handled these matters for us.


I really do want to thank you for your patience, kindness and the meticulous way in which you tackled both me and my problem.

Mrs D from Maidenhead

Very professional and helpful. Don't know what I would have done without Shella!

Mrs G of Australia

You are so meticulous, efficient, and very responsive. Your professionalism and quality of work is outstanding. The fact that this matter was carried out during the very challenging times we have all experienced due to the Pandemic, makes the level of your service even more outstanding. Throughout the complete process I have always had the feeling that I was working with a friend I had known for years.

Mr D of Oxfordshire

Having sometimes experienced slow and reactive lawyers, it was refreshing to deal with Ruth and her team. The transaction was done promptly and smoothly. We will definitely use Ruth again and would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending her to family and friends.

Mrs B of Berkshire.

We have never experienced such fast and efficient return of communication from any past or present Paralegal/ Solicitor. Thank you Jess and Sam.

Mr & Mrs Masri of Berkshire

I have always received first class service from Sarah Crowther. Her advice and suggestions have always proven excellent. What she says she will do she does.

Mrs W of Berkshire

Thank you for all your care and understanding in helping me … through the complexity of a will.

Mr P from Berkshire

Quality, professional firm with integrity, nice people – I had a first class experience.

Mr A S of Oxfordshire

We have very much appreciated Paula's patience and expert guidance through, for us, a tricky landscape.
