  • “When I moved 4 years ago, it was the first time in all of my house purchases that I felt secure that the solicitor was 1000% competent and working for me and my interests. I would highly recommend Coles Miller for all of your legal requirements.”

Conveyancing solicitor Roger Leedham, Senior Partner at Coles Miller in PooleFor Roger Leedham, Senior Partner:

  • “We have used Coles Miller for every house move (and there have been quite a few!) since 1987. Roger Leedham and the team made our recent move in 2018 as smooth and stress free as a house move can ever be. Nothing is ever too much trouble and the brilliant communication between Coles Miller and all the other parties in the chain helped us manage timescales and dates seamlessly. I recommend Roger Leedham and Coles Miller to anyone about to move house.”

  • “Thank you so much for all your work, help and perseverance with the sale of our property. We feel privileged to have had you as Senior Partner working on our case and suspect that a ‘lesser’ solicitor from a different firm might not have got this one over the line!”
  • “You need do nothing to improve your service. Mr Roger Leedham has helped me to buy and sell two properties and has given myself and my daughter exemplary service on both occasions. I will always use him and recommend him to anyone who needs a first class solicitor. He is always so helpful and punctual with every aspect of our business requirements. Please thank him on our behalf, such a gentleman.”

  • “Many thanks to you and your team at Coles Miller for handling our sale and purchase in such an efficient and caring way. You have made one of life's more stressful events less so and enabled us to make our move with the minimum of fuss.”

  • “Excellent all round thank you! Our favourite part of dealing with Roger at Coles Miller is how amazingly quickly he responds to all queries and emails – often with a bit of humour injected too! This takes a lot of the stress of buying or selling a property away!”

Conveyancing solicitor Ruth Kerley, a Partner at Coles Miller in Broadstone, DorsetFor Ruth Elkins, Partner:

I would recommend Coles Miller to anyone.”

Our solicitor Ruth kept us informed of developments, responded to our queries promptly and, when any problems occurred, remained optimistic that all would be well. Our thanks to her and also to Kelsey.”

Thanks again for your help and very efficient service.”


For Julie Stratton, an Associate at Coles Miller Solicitors LLP, PooleJulie Stratton, Associate Solicitor: 

  • “Julie Stratton has acted for us on a conveyance that was not simplistic and rather challenging from time to time. She demonstrated dexterity and determination, combined with her professionalism and commitment, in getting the job done and done well. I'm also aware that Julie has a great support team in Lauren Edridge and Jacqui Brocklehurst who have also been a pleasure to deal with.

  • “Julie Stratton is an asset to Coles Miller, works well as an individual and is also an excellent part of the team. She provides a seamless service and complements other areas. “Her mannerisms combined with her humour and professionalism have made a difference at a time in our lives when we were under enormous pressure and stress with ill health and disability.

  • “I am writing to recommend the services of Coles Miller Solicitors, Poole – in particular those provided by Lauren Edridge, Jacqui Brocklehurst and Julie Stratton. My partner and I came to use the services of Coles Miller, Poole, through the recommendation of my parents, who have been customers of Coles Miller for a number of years. We are extremely grateful Lauren was assigned to our case. She provided excellent services in an extremely professional and caring manner. As first time buyers, the whole experience can be quite daunting. However, my partner and I were constantly kept up-to-date with proceedings, and all questions and queries would be answered. No details were left out with the attitude that it was common knowledge to us. Lauren and Jacqui both explained everything to us in as full and clear manner as possible. I would recommend the use of services provided to us – not only from Lauren, but the above mentioned as well – to a relative or friend and I would also use them again myself in the future. Lauren and the team are a great asset to the Coles Miller branch in Poole and my partner and I are sincerely grateful for their hard work during the purchase of our home. On behalf of myself and my partner, I would like to once again pass on our gratitude to Lauren, Jacqui and Julie, and wish them all the very best in the future.”
  • “We would recommend Coles Miller for conveyancing as they acted in a calm and professional way at all times during our recent buying and selling of our homes.”

  • "I have used the services of Coles Miller for previous house sales and purchases and divorce settlement and again on this current sale of property, and the costs involved have been excellent. My new purchase in the New Year will be dealt with by Coles Miller (Lauren Edridge) as I have full confidence in their professional ability. Highly recommended to anyone wanting legal services."
