"I would like to thank Kevin for all the work he did, on behalf of myself and my Father, during a particularly stressful time. His professionalism, quick responses, patience and guidance was invaluable. The advice and options he give us were clearly and carefully explained in private surroundings. Kevin was only an email or phone call away and was more than happy to deal with any of our questions. Thank you again."

 

'Kevin made the whole process of a property transfer within our family much simpler than we thought it would be as he was willing to take the time to explain things properly and in easy to understand terms. Everything progressed to the timescale he outlined in the beginning and he kept us updated at each stage of proceedings. His approachable manner helped us to feel comfortable and able to ask questions. He provides a very professional service and I would have no hesitation in recommending Kevin to friends and family.'

 

"We as a family have been delighted with the service kfmLAW have provided for us. Not only was it professional, but it was streamlined and gave us peace of mind knowing that mum's wishes were taken into account ensuring that the process of Power of Attorney went ahead with the minimum of fuss. We now know that should the need arise we have the correct documentation in place to protect mum. We would not hesitate to recommend kfmLAW. An excellent service. Thank you very much."

 

'I am very pleased with the personal and flexible service provided by Kevin. I was able to draw up my Will without any worries due to the excellent advice and support I received.'

 

"I would just like to say how pleased we were with your handling of our business. You were very professional and wasted no time in doing what was necessary. You were very knowledgeable and explained everything very well. You have a very pleasant manner and are easy to talk to. Also the fact that you don't charge VAT helps!! Overall I would recommend you to anybody who is looking for a lawyer."

 

"I never realised the consequences of a serious accident and being an offshore worker the risks are increased, what with extended travel and high risk work environment. When I became aware of the laws and process a grieving relative would encounter, should I be injured or even die. I used kfmLAW on Matheson Rd to set up a power of attorney and Will straight away, a simple process with professional and discrete service."

 

"May I take this opportunity to thank you for the help and kindness you have shown us over the buying process. You have made this side of the process a lot less stressful for us both."



'Kevin gave us an exceptional service. He gave excellent advice to us throughout the process and highlighted possible issues that we'd not considered. Great attention to detail and a really fast, friendly service.'


"We both would like to thank Kevin for all his work during the purchase of our first house, with having no experience of the property market or knowing how to go about purchasing a house we approached Kevin, The professionalism and service Kevin provided made the process straight forward and stress-free for us as first time buyers, At every stage of the process there was communication and any questions we had Kevin was very helpful in making everything understandable. I would personally recommend kfmLAW for any service."



"I would recommend Kevin for several reasons.

 He works from his own home so therefore it is totally confidential.  In a small place like Stornoway this matters. 

He is Vat free so therefore your bill will be less than the other solicitors. 

He sends all his correspondence by email so there is no delay, therefore speeding up the process. 

He can fit you in with an appointment at short notice and he answers all your questions/emails really quickly so you feel like a valued client. 

And it goes without saying that he is friendly and helpful."


“Hi Kevin

Thank you for being so patient and approachable and for making the house buying process so straight forward and stress free. It was really important to us that we were able to talk to you and ask questions and you made things clear and easy to understand. Also, thank you for always being so thorough and professional.

Thanks again, I'm sure we will be in touch again.”

 

"At a time of great anxiety and distress, I found myself very fortunate to find namely Mr Kevin F MacPherson having never thought I would need the service's of a solicitor, I was unsure if I could cope, but with patience and professionalism he gave me all the information and choice's, he minimalize my anxiety and the distress was hardly noticeable, although from time to time I would be consumed with both a few reassuring word from him I was back on track. I have no doubts in my mind if you need a solicitor with knowledge , professionalism, and integrity Kevin F MacPherson is your man."

 

 

"My husband and I wish to thank you for the sterling service provided by you as you guided us through the various issues we raised with you.

We are very impressed with your assessment of our needs and your specification, clearly explained, of  the most appropriate way forward for us. When that was agreed all processes were progressed efficiently and we were kept informed throughout- highly recommended. Thank you again-a brilliant, impeccable, exemplary service delivered in a quiet relaxed atmosphere giving us every confidence in the decisions taken. "

 

‘Recently I had the pleasure of dealing with KFM LAW due a purchase of a property. Mr Kevin Macpherson was very approachable and helpful during the process. He was flexible with the appointment times to suit my personal needs. He was willing to explain things in lay persons terminology and break up the 'Legal Jargons'. I would use KFM law again when I need such services. I have no hesitation in recommending him to my friends.’

 

Kevin, many thanks for all your hard work, expert advice & assistance in the purchase of my 1st property. As a first time buyer the whole process at first seemed daunting. With your advice & guidance the whole process was explained clearly & eventually ran very smoothly. Even when there were slight bumps in the process your expert & reassuring words of advice made everything seem so much clearer. 

 

I thank you again for a first class service & will be recommending your services to anyone I know that is thinking of buying a property or needing Legal advice in any other matters.’

 

 

"I found Kevin to be extremely thorough and efficient in arranging the purchase of my house, despite some complications with the boundaries. Kevin is friendly and helpful. He kept me informed at every stage and clearly explained the complications and advised me on the best way to proceed. I feel he acted in my best interests at every stage and I am pleased to recommend KFMLAW."

 

"We have found Kevin to be a top solicitor and would highly recomend his services.
We have recently purchased a plot of land with his help and he made the whole process simple and straightforward. He was extremely efficient and a big bonus for us is that he was able to forward documents and respond to us through email. Thanks Kevin"

 

‘As opposed to other solicitors three differences stood out to me.

1. The no VAT was a major plus.

2. You were always very prompt at replying to my emails and I was pleased to always have a response from you who understood my case and not a secretary.

3. I noticed you were working on my case on a Saturday this was appreciated and something that is unheard of with legal work. ‘

 

 

'This was a difficult and tiresome property purchase transaction involving a previously Bank repossessed property. Right through the transaction process the usually expected co-operation and goodwill from the Vendor's side was almost non-existent. Mr Kevin Macpherson of kfmLAW, who represented us, provided excellent advice and guidance through what was for us a very difficult  purchaser experience !  Coming from North Wales, UK and Australia, as we did – Mr Macpherson patiently and considerately led us through what was for us very unfamiliar “conveyancing territory”- he most patiently and clearly explained the intricacies of “Scottish Crofting Laws” and possible pitfalls that could be faced by a unwary Land Purchaser. In fact he discovered that our deeds were  incomplete, with “de-crofting” documentation missing in the missives received ! He took great care in getting this corrected for us. As said previously the said Vendor were not easy to deal with, but kfmLAW steered us through to a successful completion on time. Their legal fees are extremely reasonable, and VAT is not added on to the client's invoicing – making it a very affordable client experience to use the legal services of Mr. Kevin Macpherson of kfmLAW. We are delight to have appointed them our family Solicitors here, in Scotland.'

 

'Hi Kevin,

 

On behalf of my father and myself, we would like to thank you will all your professional help over the last few months in helping us re-draft my father’s will and also granting power of attorney, a subject which is not always easy to approach as we always brush these things aside until later on in life. We found that you explained everything to us in a professional and easy to understand manner and urged us to ask questions at any stage.

 

Our meetings prompted myself and my partner to also approach you and prepare our own wills too, which you have now completed and it gives us so much peace of mind knowing that the future is taken care of.  No VAT is also a bonus!!

 

Once again many thanks for everything and we will certainly recommend you to anyone who asks.'

 

 

'Kevin MacPherson, of KFM Law, performed the conveyancing for my recent house purchase in East Lothian. He was exceptionally diligent and kept me informed of every detail that had the potential to cause concern so it could be questioned before problems occurred. This helped minimise any delays in the process from my end and I would heartily recommend him, and his firm, to anyone looking to buy a house.'

 

'I have used Kevin's services for a number of matters over the last few years, P.O.A, Wills and purchasing of land. On each occasion I have been very impressed by his professionalism and speed of response when dealing with these matters. I particularly like that most of his correspondence is handled by email speeding up the process and reducing the costs involved. His prices are very reasonable and I would highly recommend Kevin to others.'

'Hi Kevin
 
On behalf of my partner and I we would like to thank you very much in your help when we did mortgage and for explaining everything to us. Thank you also for doing our wills as we were talking about doing it for years but never actually got round to it. Thanks for accommodating us at a convenient time for us and was private and so relaxing to come into your office. If we ever need any legal advice again we will definitely be recommending you and have already told all my family and friends that you are definitely the man for anything legal that they may require. Many thanks again Kevin'

"After a protracted period of conveyancing where I was forever chasing the solicitor for progress on the sale of my brother's house in England, I then had to find someone to do the conveyancing for the house he was purchasing on mainland Scotland. My son said "Try Kevin" .So I took his advice and Kevin kindly took the job at very short notice. A great choice, as he has given us a first class service. Friendly, always a step ahead of everything and always keeping me informed of progress. Thanks Kevin, this time was easy because you took the worry off my shoulders."

 

 

"Kevin, has been of great help in resolving a long-standing issue I have been facing. At all times he was clear it may be a drawn out procedure according to the requirements of the law.

 

The issue was that of divorce.

 

What I have found is that some lawyers represent their clients and others seem to represent their own interests. I state that for the reason my ex-wife and myself were in agreement on all matters yet it was dragged out unnecessarily in our view. On occasion just for a word to be inserted in a document for no need causing frankly pointless delay and additional costs.

 

Divorce is a serious matter especially when children are involved, as it causes not just the mother and father a great deal of stress may also affect the children.

 

Kevin handled the entire process with I believe tact and professionalism and his clients interests at heart from the initial meeting.

 

I thank him deeply and recommend him to any that require such a service."

 

 

 

"It has been a pleasure to deal with you, the whole process was made very easy, we were kept up to date with emails and it was very private!"

 

"Many thanks for all your efforts and hours spent on our recent property sale and purchase.  With such a personal approach, going above and beyond what is the expected norm, yet delivering a highly professional service equating to what transpired to be a seamless completion and entry day in one = happy days!"

 

 

"We have used Kevin’s services numerous times in the last 3 years for the purchase of multiple properties, preparation of our wills, powers of attorney, dealing with my father’s estate and legal advice on a wide variety of other issues. Kevin is the perfect solicitor; he has expert knowledge and is very professional but does not bamboozle you with legal jargon. A great helping hand for any legal matters you require help with, we cannot recommend him highly enough."


 

"A clear and professional service with the personal touch, just what we were looking for".

 

"My husband and I had been talking for some time about getting our wills done and finally got round to it a few weeks ago.  We contacted KfmLAW and Kevin soon put us at ease and explained the legal implications of the will-making process.  With his advice and help, we have now made our wills and it is such a relief to know that should anything happen to either of us, that matters will be settled as we wish."

 

"If you are thinking of making a will, then I would recommend KfmLAW to you, as the advice provided was invaluable to us in relation to such an important document."

 

"Many thanks for your time. I must admit I was impressed with the specific answers you provided. I have dealt with lawyers in a number of countries including the UK regarding company issues mainly, and I think it must be the first time there was no beating about the bush."

 

"Dear Kevin

I am very happy with that. It's been a very trying time and I've found your services to be excellent throughout the whole process so thank you very much for all that you have done and I am so pleased the sale has finally gone through."

 

"Thanks Kev, much appreciate your patience, prompt responses and continued service to provide what we are looking for!"

 

'Just to say a huge thank you for all your help in getting us our dream house at home, you were so efficient and very easy to deal with, I will be recommending you to everyone. You are great at your job and we both wish you all the best in your new business'     

                                                                 

 

'Hi Kevin

Thanks for everything, you have given me peace of mind now that's all over. It's so good to go to your place, very impressed by it all: 'nice and private!'                                                                

 

'Hello Kevin 

Thank you very much for your ultra efficient and  friendly service which made everything as easy as strolling in the park.  We will take pleasure from recommending you to anyone. '                               

 

'Dear Kevin,

 

We'd all like to say a massive 'Thank You' for all your hard work, very much appreciated.  Obviously we couldn't have wished for a better outcome!'                                                                        

 

' Mr MacPherson worked tirelessly on my behalf and nothing was ever too much for him. I really cannot thank him enough. You really are Lewis's number one as far as I'm concerned.'

 

' Dear Kevin

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your help over the past five years in trying to sell my property in what has been a very difficult market. I am very happy with the excellent service and advice you have provided, and how helpful and friendly you have been over the last few years '

' Dear Mr MacPherson

 

I would like to thank you, again for your quick and efficient service you provided, maintaining the original moving date, despite a slow start from the other side. But also your attention to details, ensuring we had the correct documentation in place and saving us some money '

 

'Dear Mr MacPherson

Just a quick note to say thank you for your patience, help and efficiency in dealing with our purchase. I must say it is very refreshing to find someone that deals with his customers in such a pleasant way '

 

' Dear Mr MacPherson

May I thank you again for completing what was a rather protracted conveyance - even for the Isle of Lewis. Should I need legal assistance for matters north of the border I will reach for the phone and give you a call. This experience suggests to me having a lawyer who understands the issues that can arise when buying an Island property is well advised '

 

'Dear Kevin

 

I'm sure you're used to people being thankful for your assistance, but I'd like to gush with gratitude. Thank you so VERY much for all your help and expertise in helping us get this great wee plot! It was originally on the market for £70,000; so for us to get it for £40,000 is really unbelievable '

 

'Dear Mr MacPherson

We would like to thank you for all your help and good work over the last few months, with the selling of our house and the purchase of our plot. You made sure everything went smoothly and efficiently keeping us on track at all times. This excellent service is greatly appreciated.'

 

'Hi Kevin

 

We would both like to take the opportunity to thank you for dealing with the sale of the house and associated matters in such a helpful and professional manner. We really appreciated being kept informed of developments as it was a difficult time for us being so far away. Your costs too we thought were entirely reasonable.'

 

'Dear Mr MacPherson

 Thanks again for your time on this matter, as always you have been extremely helpful.'
