"I am very pleased with the outcome and relieved that this matter is now resolved.  I would like to take this opportunity to thank you personally for your professionalism and for resolving this in the least amount of time and with the best possible outcome for me and with the least amount of stress."

"This is a huge relief and I am so very grateful for all you have done to resolve this awful situation for me.  I shall indeed call upon you if ever I need help in the future."

“I would just like to say thank you so much again for your continued professionalism and compassion. You truly are amazing at what you do and once again I can’t thank you enough.”

“I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for your considered advice, professionalism and good humour throughout what has been a prolonged and, at times, tedious dispute. I have enjoyed working with you and wish you the very best”

"Multi Time User! I have used 2 branches of mfg Solicitors and found both to be extremely helpful, experienced and efficient. I won't be using anyone else in the future!"

“Spectacular news! Thank you so much for your work on this. I can’t tell you what a relief it is that it’s finally over.  Thanks again”

"Thank you again for all your help!  It meant so much that you helped me stand up for myself and gave me a chance to rebuild my life!”

"Thank you so much for all your help and advice and supporting our family with what was a very challenging and upsetting situation and should any other issues arise, we shall definitely be in touch."

"I was recommended to Andrew Chandler personally by solicitors dealing with my mother's estate. Sadly my brother was withholding my rightful share so I needed an expert in contentious probate. What I most appreciated from the start was Andrew’s professional and precise manner in which he explained the process. There were no false promises and his knowledge of the process was impressive. I basically felt secure that I was in good hands whatever the outcome. Due to this I felt comfortable letting Andrew do his job and he updated me at appropriate times until thankfully in this case justice was served and I received my rightful share. I cannot recommend Andrew highly enough and will always be grateful. Thanks again."

“I just wanted to take this moment to thank you for everything you've done regarding this matter. It's been one hell of a year but I'm so glad it's finally over and we can all move on with our lives. Thanks again.”

"I instructed Andrew Chandler of mfg Solicitors to assist me in a Will dispute.  Andrew was recommended to me as he specialises in this particular area.  He is extremely knowledgeable and the advice given throughout was excellent.  He managed to negotiate a fair and justified claim and I have no hesitation in highly recommending him to others."

"You defended me when I was faced with nothing but unfairness, cruelty and a dismal situation. Your strength and determination gave me the best fighting chance. I couldn't have done this without you."

"Thank you for everything, the work you have done is phenomenal."

“Andrew Chandler demonstrated the highest level of professionalism and thoroughness that I have seen in any legal service I have ever used.  Over the years I have had to use several solicitors but with mfg, I am at last relieved that I have found a firm and a team that I can rely on.  Our case lasted over a year and a half and throughout it, their advice, patience, resourcefulness and skills were flawless.  I recommend them absolutely.”

The Legal 500:

‘It is a local Worcestershire outfit which is really well imbedded into the local community. This makes it very approachable and user friendly where you can get a good level  of ‘hands on’ partner input right from the start. Robert Weston but also Andrew Chandler are very steady and sure footed in managing their cases, in particular claims under the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975′.
