FOLLOWING a successful launch day at the beginning of August, a new law firm in Durham has opened its doors to help customers to deal with domestic and commercial property matters.

Although only 29, Dale Lever made the decision to set up Lever Law Solicitors when he identified the need for his services in the Durham area.

Along with four colleagues, he opened his offices in Pelaw Leazes Lane, close to the city centre, to provide services covering a wide spectrum of specialised legal matters, such as commercial and residential conveyancing; company law; elderly client care; wills; probate; sport, media and entertainment law.

He says: “I’ve always wanted to set up my own law practice, and the time was right to open in Durham. Durham is a fantastic place, and our strong ties with the commercial market in the city makes it the ideal base for the company.

“We understand that it is often difficult for clients to choose a solicitor, as most law firms offer a similar level of service. We pride ourselves on going the extra mile. We offer our clients a higher level of service than they would usually expect by providing a personal approach in a friendly environment.

“We have been really busy since we opened our doors, and we have a very experienced team ready to help clients with their legal issues.”

Lever Law ensures that all their charges are clear and transparent.  Clients are informed about what is, and what is not, included in the prices they are quoted; which charges may be subject to VAT; and, where payments to others (known as disbursements) may be required together, with what these fees are likely to be.

Clients are always given an indication as to the typical timescales and key stages involved in progressing matters on their behalf, whilst making it clear what factors may have a bearing on these timescales.

You will also be informed who will be dealing with matters on your behalf, so you have the confidence and reassurance of knowing that they have the necessary skills, expertise and experience needed to ensure that the firm provide you with an outstanding service.

You’ll find Lever Law Solicitors just off Durham’s river banks, a short walk from the City Centre and train station. The firm has designated free parking bays for clients, wheelchair access and bike storage.
