Corfield Solicitors Corfield Solicitors, located a short stroll from the Bristol Downs in the leafy suburb of Sneyd Park, integrates all the elements of contemporary business with traditional values. All client matters are dealt with exclusively by Jonathan, Charles and Stuart, our experienced solicitors. We offer both a local home visiting service and consultations out of normal working hours at no additional cost and use the same legal software as many 150+ fee earner firms.

As with every other legal practice Corfield Solicitors is regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority and is fully insured. As directed by the Government, our solicitors are working from home, communicating with clients remotely or by phone where appropriate.

If during 'lockdown' our solicitors have no alternative but to see a client in a time critical matter which cannot be delayed, the client(s) will be invited to our adapted meeting room which provides floor to ceiling separation of the solicitor and client(s), has a dedicated client entrance, audio voice system through glass and an opening window to the garden.
Highlights

read more › Married with three sons, Jonathan Corfield has lived in the Stoke Bishop area of Bristol for the last 26 years. He graduated from Bristol University and after qualifying as a solicitor in 1980, was a partner with Robert Smith & Co until merging with city centre firm Burroughs Day in 1988, where he was an equity partner until leaving in 2008. My friend and senior colleague for many years announced his intention to retire and with my name one place from the top of the notepaper, I decided to leave the city centre way of working behind and work in a way that gives me more time for clients, personally seeing a matter through from start to finish.

read more › Having completed an Honours degree in Law, Stuart went on to pass his year long Legal Practice Course, completed his Training Contact in 2018 and is now working in the family practice as a solicitor. As Stuart was at university in Bristol for both his degree and his Legal Practice Course, he was able to put in hours at the practice throughout that time, particularly in the holidays and many clients have been charmed by his natural friendliness in both answering the phone and welcoming them for their appointments.

Losing a loved one is clearly very difficult, but having what is, in effect, a message from them to guide you as to how to deal with their affairs makes decision making easier for those you leave behind. This message is the information contained in your Will. If you take a moment to consider what is to be included, then your list will probably revolve around your family, your home, your savings and those people and charities that are special to you.

read more › Purchasing a property at any time of life can be stressful, but this can be more difficult if selling what was the family home, or purchasing 'at a distance' to be near family or a new area of the country. Whatever the reason, a smooth and efficient transaction is what is needed, as well as an opportunity to discuss any worries you may have. By having this discussion at home, you are relaxed and the meeting more effective. If buying a flat or retirement property for the first time, you will inevitably have questions regarding maintenance /service charges and the lease if applicable.

read more › It seems there has recently been an often unwanted trend towards conveyor belt conveyancing, depersonalising what is a very personal transaction be it sale or purchase. It's our experience that clients often need to know what is happening on a day to day basis in order to make the process as stress free as possible for them. Being able to speak to the solicitor dealing with your matter however often you wish, can put worries into perspective so that you can get on with the more pleasurable side of moving.

Swift, efficient service with the same software as 150+ fee earner city firms is offered, together with a more flexible attitude to working hours and consulation venue at 225+ VAT per hour. Acquisition, disposal (and mortgages) of commercial, industrial, retail and leisure properties.

read more › We pride ourselves in being a family run, ethical practice and from the start, the setting of our fees at a level to make a living rather than a fortune has been our priority. A solicitor's practice is only funded by the solicitor's hourly fee or his/her income from fixed fee charges. This income has to cover everything from indemnity insurance to paper clips, salaries and computer systems to stamps. The fee charged is usually set with regard to how much experience the solicitor has, how long he or she has been qualified and indeed what additional qualifications the solicitor may have.

read more › Our fixed fee includes our initial meeting to take your instructions; the drafting and engrossment of your Will; and, a further appointment to sign your Will. We do not charge any additional fees for providing the witnesses to your Will nor for storing your Wills in our secure, vaulted storage facility. In such an event we would be entitled to charge for our extra time incurred (at our hourly rate of 225+ VAT) and please be assured that should this happen, the problem and subsequent addition to the fixed fee would be fully discussed and approved by you before commencement of the additional work.

read more › There are two types of Lasting Power of Attorney (LPAs); Property and Affairs (Financial) and Personal Welfare. Our charging structure is clear and fair. If both LPAs are drawn up at the same time, then much of the information needed for the first, will be used for the second. Likewise if both clients are wishing us to prepare LPAs, then both can be seen at the same appointments. In addition, we see our work in the registration of the documents at the Office of the Public Guardian as part of the process and see no need to charge any extra for this.
