Our testimonials

I never hesitate to recommend Simon to both solicitor- and lay-clients, especially where service is proving tricky. I know he will get a result even against the most evasive respondent and I know he is good value. But more than that, I know his certificates of service will be accurate and rules-compliant to the satisfaction of my judges

Jonathan RodgerBarrister, Trinity Chambers

Simon is a life line to us in the Litigation Team at Archers. We have worked together on many an instruction now and on each occasion the service has been second to none. Never is a job too big, too small or on too short notice, and on each occasion, he gets us a result. Highly recommend Simon and his team. First class every time

After using a number of process servers in my career, I have to say that Simon is the best. I have never had such a rapid service for a standard fee (often papers are served that same day). I would have no hesitation recommending SD Legal Services and I often do, to contacts and colleagues alike!”

I have used and will continue to use Simon Darby as the go to person in Insolvency matters for extremely fast personal service of statutory demands and petitions and other court documents as well as tracing the whereabouts of debtors. He is always available and willing to go the extra mile to help. There are no forms to complete and a simple email gets the job up and running quickly”

Andrew CawkwellAssociate Director North East Manolete Partners Plc

Simon’s service is second to none.  He is efficient, professional, and tenacious – an aspect missing from many in his industry.  If you want a job done, Simon will go above and beyond to get it done on time and at a fair fixed fee that is easily justifiable to clients.
