What others say about us

I can highly recommend SD Legal Services for process serving and debtor tracing.  They move quickly and they’ve always done an excellent job for me.

Neville TakiarLitigation Partner, Gunnercooke

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

My company employed S D Legal Services for a job in the North East and I was impressed with their can do attitude and professionalism. Since then they have been my go to agency for tracing and process serving; including extensively during the recent pandemic.  The turnaround of papers is the best I have seen in 30+ years in the commercial recoveries sector. S D Legal Services has directly contributed to many successful collections for my
customers.

Allison ThompsonHead of Debt Recovery – Sintons LLP

I have dealt with Simon and SD Legal Services on a number of occasions and the service they provide is invariably efficient, professional and to a high standard. Whenever I have instructed Simon in the past, the options available and associated costs have been set out very clearly, and Simon has been extremely co-operative in trying to achieve the best possible outcome for my clients. I therefore have no hesitation in instructing Simon on behalf of, or recommending him to, clients and colleagues.

Ben Green Hewitts

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!”

Dan Elsworth Senior Debt Recovery Executive – Lupton Fawcett LLP

We recently instructed Simon for the first time on two new matters, one requiring an asset report and the other for service of a statutory demand. I was thoroughly impressed with the speed at which the services were delivered, even more so given the current restrictions in place due to COVID-19.

He is always our first port of call and we never hesitate to recommend him.”

Wayne S. Fraser, Martin L. Grove

SD Legal Services are the best in the business in terms of personal service and contact tracing. They are my go to whenever I need to serve anything in person. They are quick, affecting service on the same day I hand papers over where possible, and their supporting witness evidence always stops defective service arguments before they arise. Their contact tracing is every bit as effective, locating subjects in a matter of hours. They are good value for money and I never hesitate in recommending them to my clients.
