First class / effective communication

We will always keep you updated so that you are aware of any developments with your case.  However, should you need to speak to a member of our team you can do so at any time, often even out of normal office hours. If the solicitor dealing with your matter is unavailable for any reason you will be able to discuss your case with one of our other solicitors or one of our highly trained assistants. Depending on your preference, you can talk to us in person, by letter, by telephone, by email or SKYPE.

Friendly & Courteous

We are not just here to advise you on your options. We are on your side. All of our family solicitors and their assistants are friendly and approachable. If you have any questions or concerns, we are here to help.

Working for you

Our role is to make sure your goals are met. We will deal with your case promptly and without unnecessary delay. We will take a constructive and, where possible, non-confrontational approach but we won’t be bullied by other lawyers.

Flexible payment options

We recognise that talking to a solicitor can be an expensive process. We will keep you informed about costs throughout the process and can offer you flexible payment options.  Talk to one of our team who will be able to discuss these with you.

Initial consultation

We offer a FREE initial consultation at a time to suit you. This provides an opportunity to meet with you to discuss your concerns and objectives without any obligation on your part.  During the initial consultation we will provide you with some preliminary advice so you will have sufficient information to help you make an informed decision on whether to proceed.

Plain English

Lawyers are renowned for using long words and complicated legal jargon. Not at Gard & Co. We will ensure that we communicate with you in such a way that you are certain you know what is happening at each stage. If at any time you need something explained or are uncertain of the way ahead, we are always happy to make things clear.  We know it can be a difficult and often stressful time and it is our aim to ease that burden, not make it worse.

City Centre location

Based in the heart of Plymouth’s increasingly vibrant City Centre we are easily accessible by public and private transport, with free parking available outside the office.
