Our Aim
As our clients, you are our main concern; we will endeavour to resolve your problems with straightforward honest advice based upon our extensive knowledge and expertise. We pride ourselves on being independent and approachable, offering a friendly, mature and ethical service. We aim to guide you through often difficult times with as little stress as possible. Much of our business comes from repeat work through our long-standing client base and through word-of-mouth recommendations.

Our Fees
We are here to help and in the most cost effective way for you. In this respect we have made a conscious decision not to join estate agents' panels as we refuse to pay commission or referral fees for client recommendations. Nor do we use trainee solicitors; all our staff are fully qualified so you will not be charged full rates for unqualified staff. These are serious considerations which you should check when requesting quotes from estate agents and other solicitors as such costs will invariably be passed on to you.

Our rates are highly competitive, for example our wills service starts at a very reasonable £200 + VAT for a simple single will and £320 + VAT for a simple joint will. Other fixed fee services include uncontested divorce, basic debt recovery, and most property related matters.  If you would like a quotation please complete our Enquiry Form and a member of staff will get back to you.

We understand how intimidating and confusing some legal jargon can be and we try to keep it to a minimum. We communicate with our clients in plain English and will keep you informed every step of the way. We also try to accommodate our clients’ needs with home or hospital visits and out-of-hours consultations when necessary. We have disabled access with downstairs interview rooms at both of our offices.

Thomas Partridge Bendall established his legal practice in Rous Road, Newmarket in 1880, joined some twenty years later by his sons Reginald and Archie. Between 1910-12 the firm expanded with new offices in Soham, Ely and Mildenhall. When Archie died in 1935 the firm was bought by the Morgan & Nicholls partnership, neither of whom survived much beyond WWII. Geoff Roberts bought into the practice in 1947, gradually buying out his partners to become sole principal in 1955. By the end of the 1970s Geoff had been joined by four partners, including Andrew Geddes. In 1983 the partners decided to go their separate ways and the Ely and Soham offices became independent practices. Geoff continued in the practice with Andrew until 2000. Today, Andrew together with his partner Jacqueline Spencer and a qualified team of solicitors and legal executives work from both offices offering a broad range of services with particular expertise in domestic and commercial conveyancing, family law and wills and probate.
