About us

Over 100 years of legal history...

With roots in North East legal services going back over 100 years, Lambert Taylor & Gregory is a well established, vibrant law firm offering a full range of legal services to our clients.

The firm's core business has traditionally been high quality private client work and this remains true today. The firm specialises in all aspects of Property Law, Wills, Probate and Trust work. However, the firm also has a growing Criminal and Civil Litigation department which also deals with Family Law cases. Please see the Legal Services section of our web site for a detailed description of the work we do.

Our team of qualified, experienced solicitors is at the heart of our business. Our lawyers are committed to giving high quality legal advice and assistance, whatever your needs may be.

We pride ourselves on providing a quality service individually tailored to each client's needs and circumstances. We are happy to deal with work on a fixed fee/quoted basis or on a prior agreed hourly rate, whichever is more suitable to our clients and their needs.

Please feel free to contact us if you require advice and assistance in any area of law or if you would like an initial free no obligation meeting to discuss your needs.
