What Our Clients Are Saying

“After being involved in an incident , I contacted Duncan and McConnell for legal advice. From start to finish I could not have asked for a better legal team to support me, everyone one I dealt with was excellent , to the point where the case was dropped in court. A big thank you to Dave for supporting me today and being there, but extra thanks to Hannah who supported me from my 1st call and throughout my whole trial showed great support and empathy and nothing was to much. Any one in Dundee Perth or the surrounding area requiring legal advise these are the guys for you, highly recommended 👍”


"Not only do I highly recommend  Duncan and McConnell, I would also like to express my sincere gratitude to Douglas for not only the professional manner he managed my case but the compassion and non judgemental approach he expressed throughout our meetings. He helped guide and reassure me through one of the most difficult times in my life when dealing with my case. If it was not for the hard work and dedication that portrayed during this time I do not believe I would be at home looking after my children. Duncan and McConnell are an absolute credit to people in need of legal representation, from the outset I felt completely confident in Douglas's abilities as my solicitor.

Once again sincere thanks, not only from me but my family."
