Why Choose Us?

There are many factors to consider when choosing a law firm or lawyer. Most people will look at a combination of factors which will include price, experience and professional qualifications. Many will rely on a recommendation from a colleague, member of the family or friend.

Here are a few reasons that we believe are why clients choose us:

Experience and professional qualifications

All our lawyers are experts in their field. You wouldn’t ask a plumber to do electrical work, so we wouldn’t expect you to ask a family lawyer about a property transaction! At Trethowans, we have experts covering many areas of law to ensure you get expert advice and service focused on getting you the desired result.


Providing a high standard of service. We run a client service initiative which looks at every aspect of the way we do our business with a focus on ensuring we are providing both the best service and value to our clients. This focus on putting our clients first has resulted in us being Lexcel Accredited – this is the Law Society’s practice management standard and is only awarded to law firms that demonstrate excellence in areas such as client care, case management and risk management.

Delivering the best legal services to clients

Our commitment to you is to provide you with the support and guidance to help you prosper and achieve success.
