Having worked in Dorchester for the last 12 years, I joined Porter Dodson in July 2016 as an associate in the Residential Property Department. I became a partner in July 2019.
I deal with all types of sales and purchases, remortgaging and transfer of equity on both Freehold and Leasehold properties. I have experience in dealing with the help to buy scheme and also shared ownership properties.
I believe that communication is crucial. Moving home is considered to be one of the most stressful times in our lives, however it need not be and this is what I aim to achieve.
I am a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives.
I am a finalist in the CILEx National Awards 2019 for the Legal Expert in Property.
We have purchased and sold many properties over the last 35 years. Michelle is by far the best legal advisor I have ever dealt with. She was professional, prompt, knowledgeable, proactive and provided a seamless service with her team during a tricky sale and purchase. Many thanks, we really appreciate it!
Everyone was very professional, very helpful along the way, communication was brilliant. I cannot fault anyone and would highly recommend Porter Dodson.
Responses from Michelle, Louise and Sonya were always prompt and helpful. We felt content knowing that they were looking after our sale and purchase. I've never been in contact with another law firm, however, I would not consider using any other law in the future, if I could help it. Great service from the team.
Michelle and team did a great job with both purchase and sale, keeping our interest at the forefront of considerations. I felt the service was excellent value for money. Compare to other solicitors in our chain, definitely top marks!
A trouble free transaction made even better by the professionalism and friendliness of the legal team assisting us. Thanks Michelle, Sonya and Louise.
Porter Dodson has been excellent in all ways, very helpful all the way through giving very good advice and always there if you need help. I would recommend you to anyone.
The service I received was outstanding. Buying and selling a house rarely runs smoothly and throughout the whole process, your entire team was patient, understanding and very supportive. I would highly recommend Michelle and her team to friends and family. I would definitely use them again should the need arise.
Professional and efficient service with courteous and knowledgable communication and timely responses to questions. Good value for money and friendly and approachable.
An extremely professional service clearly demonstrating expertise and compassion. Would highly recommend Michelle and her team. There was no stone left unturned and knew we were in safe and capable hands from the get-go! Thank you, Michelle, for helping us get our dream house.
Michelle was very clear about the process and offered practical advice.
