Ever since our establishment in 1887 we have held one simple principle. Before we start to give advice, first we need to listen. Only by understanding your needs and concerns can we really give you the help that you need.

Then, when we do give you advice, we make sure that it is in clear, jargon-free language that gives you a clear idea of your position and the best way forward to achieve your aims.

Whether you visit our Leeds, Bradford, Harrogate and Otley office you will find the same open and approachable method of working offered by all our legal experts who work in dedicated teams who are expertly qualified in their area of expertise.

We also know that any kind of legal help can be expensive so we do all we can to keep our charges to the minimum for you while also giving you the individual attention that you need.

We have a wide number of business and personal clients who are happy to vouch for the Eatons method of legal assistance and you can read what just some of them have to say here.

So, to experience our service for yourself and to discover that all solicitors are not the same, contact us today.
