About Us

Local Firm

The practice was founded in 1987 by Jim Taft after he qualified as one of the country's first Licensed Conveyancers. Prior to this Jim had practiced in solicitors in Chesterfield all of his working life. Jim set out 30 years ago with the desire to provide a quality, professional service to local people, principles which remain at the heart of the practice today.

Jim opened in offices on Rose Hill and in 2002 moved to offices on Clarence Road, where we are still located.

Jim's son, Steven joined the firm in 2001 after qualifying as a Solicitor. Steven holds dual qualification as both a Solicitor (non-practicing) and a Licensed Conveyancer. In 2004 Steven joined Jim as a partner in the firm.

Although we regard ourselves as a small practice, and maintain the values of such, we have, over the years, been able to grow and develop based on the level of service and close relationships we have developed with clients both old and new.

Our modern approach to the conveyancing process, coupled with our experience and expertise, supported by our investment in market leading IT systems, allows us to build on the principles of good quality service and client care to ensure that we continue to provide a high quality service to all clients, whilst adapting to the ever changing property market, legal system and needs of our clients.

“The website provides a great way to thank all of our clients, past and present…. Clients continue to return to us and recommend us. Hopefully this is a reflection of the work we do and our aim to always try to give them the best service available”.
