Why use us?

Our key aim is to provide our clients with a proactive, solution-based approach to meet their requirements. We believe in giving advice in plain English, and to be accessible to you both on the telephone and in meetings in and out of the office. We understand the need for flexibility and are happy to arrange appointments out of the office and outside normal office hours in order to provide you with an efficient and stress free experience. We are different, come and see how.

Tailored to you

We aim to tailor the delivery of our services to suit your particular requirements. For example, some clients wish to proceed quickly and others slowly, and some clients wish for principal communications to be by email and others by telephone, post, in meetings or a combination of them all. Please let us know if you have any particular requirements and we will endeavour to deliver our services accordingly.

  • “I highly recommend Heidi Oran because of the amazing service we received during our lease extension, sale and purchase of a new property. Heidi communicated well and was always happy to give us prompt, clear, helpful, honest advice to us, as novice second time buyers. Fast, smooth and hassle free move thanks to Heidi. We would definitely use Laing Law in the future if the need arises.”

Her attention to detail and preparation was meticulous and her friendly supportive approach meant I was able to be reassured at every turn. Even the smallest queries I had were always answered quickly and the outcome I received was down to Charlotte’s diligence. I would recommend Charlotte and Laing Law to anyone needing a family solicitor”.
