“I have been at Hill & Abbott for over 22 years. In that time I have seen many changes but throughout have always been reassured that I was working at a solicitors of good repute who care for their staff and reward loyalty and enthusiasm.”

Alexander Garrett

“I joined Viewpoint Hill & Abbott Solicitors in 2017 having already started my training at another law firm. Upon joining Hill & Abbott I was immediately welcomed and made to feel a part of the team. I have since been provided with a variety of interesting projects and opportunities to work within the various departments to determine the area of law that best suited me. I have received fantastic support and training which has given me the confidence and skills needed to qualify as a Solicitor within the Family department.”
