    I joined Porter Dodson in May 1997 and became a Partner in February 2022. I have extensive experience in dealing with a full range of property matters.

    The firm is a preferred solicitor for the southern region of a national developer of retirement homes and I act for clients in the purchase of their apartments and associated sales.

    I have the necessary knowledge to enable me to deal with the client’s needs. Living in Yeovil, I have local knowledge of the town and surrounding area and being based in the Yeovil office makes me easily accessible to clients.

    I am a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives.


    We thought you were very efficient, communicative and responsive to all our needs. Sharon was exceptionally helpful.

    Mrs Norman

    As a retired legal executive, I was delighted with every part of the service from Robert. He was very efficient and friendly.


    Our solicitor was very efficient and paperwork was sent on time. Service was excellent. Robert Coppard was calm, which in turn made our experience moving a less stressful time.


    My experience with Robert and Becky has been very helpful. Kind and a pleasure to do business with. Kept me informed all the way through. Money well spent. Over the years I have dealt with many solicitors and can honestly say Robert and Becky are amongst the best.

    Mrs Ryan

    You were always friendly and I felt you were there for me. Thanks to you all. I am very happy in my new home.

    Robert Coppard was very helpful and efficient; he worked really hard to make sure everything was done quickly and professionally.

    Residential property client

    'Robert Coppard has been incredible. He kept me informed every step of the way and I had full confidence in him. He has gone above and beyond everything I could've wished for.'

    Mrs Poulton

    "Friendly, approachable whilst still retaining the appropriate advisor/client relationship.  Efficient, trouble-free transaction.  Terms of business for the transaction clear.  Other firms we have had to deal with have been far less effective and left us at times confused.  So unless absolutely necessary, why go elsewhere?"

    Mr & Mrs C Turner

    "Mr Coppard was aware that I was purchasing property because my wife had died, so his input was more than a business transaction: the personal, compassionate touch also played a part. Indeed I would say that was the outstanding feature in a world which is sadly becoming increasingly technological and impersonal."

    Mr M Carter

    "I have been very impressed and pleased with the serivce provided to me by Mr Coppard.  All the communications have been easy to understand and must have taken a considerable amount of time and expertise to prepare."


    "Excellent and reasonable service.  All commnications were easy to understand and Robert was always available to answer questions.  Really pleased with the service provided and wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to others."

    M E Barnes

    Very efficient and friendly service, in particular the link up with McCarthy and Stone.


    You have been fantastic, helping us at every step of the way, everything was well explained and definitely money well spent.

    J S Edge & F A Slater

    Extremely efficient. Corresponding by email worked well. In our limited experience, we consider the cost to be totally acceptable. In conclusion, we would like to thank Robert and his team for expediting our sale and purchase. Needless to say, should we require any legal assistance in the future, we would not hesitate to contact you.

    P & S Day

    Very impressed with the speed and thoroughness of Porter Dodson in progressing the purchase of our flat and sale of our house. Much faster than is generally thought to be the case.

    D J & B M Walker

    Reasonable fees, lovely people, incredibly thorough and truly understanding
