Thornton legal services are a very reliable and competent professional. Always at the end of the phone with a friendly greeting. He gets the job done with a no hassle service that is very efficient and speedy. His fees are very competitive and i’ve never felt the need to look elsewhere. I have personally worked with this company since 2009 and can safely say that I hope to continue to work with him for years to come. 

Greg cross, solicitor JWP 

Thornton legal services have worked with our firm now for over 8 years serving papers in Wakefield and the surrounding towns and cities. Throughout that time he has provided an extremely good service.  He always makes himself available at the earliest opportunity and occasions has willingly gone out of his way to assist us.  His rates are extremely competitive.  I cannot personally any occasion  when he has not been able to assist and he has an extremely high success rate.  I would have no hesitation in recommending his services.

I have known Mr. Thornton for many years and in all my dealings with him he has always been extremely efficient and dealt with all work very expeditiously and professionally. He has a good local knowledge and a good working relationship with the local courts.

 Delia Crofts-Turnbull   Solicitor at J.W.P Solicitors, 

Mr Thornton was recommended to me by other solicitors in the Wakefield area whilst I was completing my training contract. I have instructed him ever since. I find that his costs are reasonable and he is extremely reliable. He is able to collect and serve documents very quickly even though I now work in the Leeds area.

 Katherine Stephenson Solicitor at Stuart Gordon, Solicitors, 

 " I have been working with Mr Thornton for the last 8 years. During that time I have found his commitment to ensuring that the work is completed quickly and sensitively to be second to none.

On numerous occasions he has succeeded where I would not have imagined it possible due to his tenacity and drive.

He is extremely reliable and very reasonable in price especially considering the quality of the work undertaken. As a result he is always our first choice whenever we require service of documents.

I would not hesitate to recommend Thornton Legal Services. "

Kind regards
