Estate Planning Services

Family Law Services


Our Vision

At Davidson Mahon Solicitors, we treat our clients with warmth and empathy. We understand that seeing a solicitor can be daunting, especially when discussing matters such as divorce, Wills, the death of a loved one or succession planning for your business. You can be assured that you will be treated in a professional and attentive manner.


Flexibility is key for Davidson Mahon Solicitors and we work to fit in with you. We appreciate most people work during the day and only have evenings or weekends free and we can accommodate this by seeing you at times when it is convenient for you. If you would prefer an appointment outside normal working hours, please just ask.


We look after clients who are based in Warwickshire, West Midlands, Oxfordshire, Northamptonshire, Leicestershire and sometimes further afield.


We are a small firm that strives to offer exceptional client service and we look forward to looking after you for many years to come.
