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

Dexter Montague was founded as a community legal practice over 30 years ago and that commitment remains at the heart of our firm.   Faced with the unprecedented Covid-19 ‘coronavirus’ pandemic, we are determined to play our part in helping to support our local Reading community, our clients and our staff through this difficult time.

In this spirit, we wish to assure you – our current and future clients and professional & business contacts -  that we are doing all we can to protect the health and safety of our staff and clients whilst continuing to provide continuity of service.  To this end: 

  • we are working mainly from home, with a core central team at 105 Oxford Road providing essential support including telephone reception, post & deliveries;

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

  • we are offering telephone or video conferences in place of face-to-face appointments for all but essential personal contact with us; and
  • if it is essential for you to be seen in person and we have the capacity to assist, then we shall 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

"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!"
