A seamless process with DRN Solicitors which made what can be a very stressful process a great deal easier.

"We just wanted to write to tell you that we had a great experience working with Jean on the purchase of our property. Jean has been absolutely brilliant. She was always always on it, always super responsive on email and with our calls. Jean was very patient whilst we had many glitches in Spain, but persevered with us to get a good end result.

The estate agent also said Jean was most helpful and easy to deal with. We can’t recommend you highly enough, and will be doing so to anyone who needs help in this area.
It was a seamless process with Jean and your company which made what can be a very stressful process, a great deal easier. Thank you.

Incredibly Approachable and Informative – Sara Jane – Wills

"We visited Donald Race Newton for assistance in making our wills recently, something we had just not got around to doing previously. An appointment with Sarah Jane Chorkley, Head of DRN's Private Client department was made and she talked it all through with us, gave us some very clear information and guidance. She was very approachable, professional and friendly which made it easier to discuss everything. A week later we went back, signed them and are now confident as they are stored with themselves and also registered with the online will service. Overall very satisfied with the whole experience."

Criminal Law

"You were fantastic. I would recommend DRN to anyone charged with a criminal or road traffic offence."


Nicola Barrow, Family/Divorce

"Right from the very first time I contacted Donald Race and Newton, I found them to be polite, forthcoming and non-judgemental about my issues from start to finish. The family solicitor I had was Nicola Barrow and I would highly recommend her to anybody who needed expert advice on family and children issues. She made me feel at ease and very comfortable with all the appointments and the court process, which can be very daunting for anyone. My whole experience with the family courts was made a whole lot easier for myself because of the caring, down to earth and non-judgemental attitude of one of its finest solicitors. Thank you Nicola"

Sara Jane Chorkley – Private Client

"We are now in our mid-sixties, and felt that this would be a good time to review our wills. Sara Jane Chorkley is friendly, knowledgeable and experienced, and she really helped us to ensure that our wills are now up-to-date and fully reflect our wishes. She was also very helpful in guiding us through inheritance tax issues and options."

Nicola Barrow, Family/Divorce

"Nicola Barrow is a tenacious empathetic family lawyer. She achieved a wonderful outcome for my youngest daughter and I. Nicola grasped a complex set of circumstances and background issues rapidly and responded on my behalf in a truly timely and professional manner. Nicola fought my corner when I didn’t have the will to carry on and supported me through a very troubled legal process. I hope I never find myself in such a position again, but if I ever have any family issues in the future, or indeed am asked to recommend somebody, Nicola Barrow, and her team at DRN, are really first class. I think she, in particular, goes the extra mile. You sense from the outset that she believes in you and wants the best outcome for your child."


Employment Law

"St. Mary’s College is delighted with the tremendous Employment Law service it is receiving from Donald Race & Newton.

Charlotte Farrell – Personal Injury

"I was fortunate to have Charlotte Farrell deal with my 3 road traffic claims over the past 9 years and it’s great to have someone there that remembers you. Charlotte dealt with my claims quickly and professionally and I was delighted with the outcome of my claims. I would definitely recommend Charlotte and DRN to my friends and family, Charlotte always provides an excellent service."
