What our clients say

The firm of George & James Oliver WS has acted for me for many years both in my personal affairs and for Trusts and Executries in which I was involved. It has always conducted business in a professional manner and provided a dedicated, personal, friendly service.

We used George and James Oliver WS when pursuing an unpaid bill. The service was excellent. We were referred on to a colleague who specialised in this field. Fees were reasonable and we got the money owed to us, without having the cost of a court case. A first-class service, hassle-free from start to finish. We would highly recommend George and James Oliver to other businesses that might require this service.

George and James Oliver have helped us rent out several cottages this last year and on every occasion they have found suitable tenants, often without a break in the tenancies. The whole process was seamless from the initial advertising through to the final lease being drawn up and signed. Many of the potential tenants saw our properties in the High Street window. On all occasions staff kept us fully informed of potential tenants, showed them the properties if we were not available, and did all the necessary referencing most efficiently. Local knowledge is invaluable and this along with their legal department means you can rest assured that the properties are let according to current rules and regulations.

Last summer my parents decided to move all their legal dealings from a large firm to George and James Oliver, as they felt a small family firm was more personal. This has proved to be an excellent decision and I can only say how pleased we are that we made this move. John Oliver and his office staff have been extremely sensitive, attentive and efficient in carrying out all our legal matters.

I was seriously considering purchasing land for a building plot one day as I walked along Hawick High Street. I didn't have a solicitor in mind, however I was passing George and James Oliver so I popped in for advice. This was the best decision I made as I was met with very friendly staff who assisted me through the initial stages. During the actual land purchase I received very professional and helpful advice from Mr Oliver who certainly looked after all my interests. Since this initial meeting I have used Mr Oliver and his staff several times regarding other property sales and have been very impressed with their helpful and professional attitude throughout.
