COVID-19 : A Message from Bill Montague, Senior Partner

Updated June 2021

Throughout the Covid-19 crisis, DMP have continued to operate a full service, supporting our clients and our staff.

We have measures in place to ensure that our office and working arrangements are Covid secure and continue to prioritise the health and safety of our staff and clients whilst providing continuity of service.  To this end: 

  • our offices are open during normal business hours for clients by prior appointment where needed and  in accordance with government guidelines;
  • legal personnel may work partly from home and partly at the office, with a core team at 105 Oxford Road providing practice support. 

Our lawyers are able to deal with casework remotely when working from home; our central IT and support systems enable remote working both safely and securely.

  • we offer telephone or video conferencing in place of face-to-face appointments if desired; and
  • if you need to see us in person, then we apply public health social distancing and safety guidelines.

In short, we have put in place systems to maintain continuity of client service and minimise business disruption to ensure that matters proceed as smoothly as possible.

In all the 50 odd years that I have engaged solicitors I have never had the degree of personal attention given to me and my wife that I have received from you and your team. We felt that you were determined to give us the best possible solution and we believe this is what you have provided for us.

Mr and Mrs W

"I really appreciated your high level of professional service throughout the process. Thankyou very much."

Mr S

"You provided a superb service and went the extra mile. Many thanks!"

Mrs T

"I would be happy to accept the offer and am hugely grateful to you for all your help with this claim. Thank you very, very much."

Mrs A

"Thank you for all your hard work throughout my divorce. You are so good at your job and explain everything so well. You have been a great help to me in something I thought I’d never be doing."

Mrs T

"Preparing your wills for the first time is quite a daunting and strange experience – your gentle, professional and understanding approach made it very easy for us and we felt comfortable with our decisions."

Mr A

"I should like to take this opportunity to say how delighted I am with the comprehensive Terms and Conditions you created for my business and also the excellent professional advice you have given me."

Mr M

"Thank you so much for all of your help with our rather fraught house transaction. We really appreciated your compassion, listening and advisory skills! We are so happy that we have finally moved!"

Mr and Mrs M
