Why Us

Slee Blackwell Solicitors are one of the oldest established firms in the South West.  With a hard earned reputation for quality and professionalism, we offer teams of specialist lawyers dealing in niche areas of law.  This means that your legal matter is dealt with not by some "jack of all trade", dabbling in this and that, but by a dedicated legal professional who is an expert in their field of law. 

In 2012 we opened a branch office in Taunton to add to our existing offices in Barnstaple, Bideford, Braunton and South Molton.  The move proved so successful that a year later we opened new, bigger premises at our current location on Bindon Road Business Park.

Our staff are recruited from the local area and are friendly and approachable.

We deal with dispute cases (including professional negligence, contentious probate and personal injury claims) on a No Win-No Fee basis and will always provide an initial assessment free of charge. 

For privately funded cases, we are always willing to provide an estimate of our costs. 

We have achieved Lexcel accreditation, the Law Society quality standard for excellence in client care.  We are also recommended by the Legal 500 as one of the leading firms in the region. 

We are proud to have received the NSPCC's Childhood Champion Award for Corporate Partner of the Year for South West and Channel Islands 2018.
