About Us

Welcome, From Our Friendly, Experienced Legal Team

We are here to help you live your happiest life. At Parsonage & Co Solicitors, we are a team of amenable and highly experienced lawyers who specialise in family law, conveyancing and Wills & probate matters.

Whether you’ve worked with us before or this is your first time seeking our advice, we want to welcome you and provide the best quality of advice and support.

Our values are trust, integrity and honesty. We will do the best for you and help you move towards a bright and hopeful future.

A little bit about us

Parsonage & Co was founded in 2004 by specialist family law solicitor, Sylvia Parsonage. The firm has been a labour of love for Sylvia who has dedicated her career of over 25 years to helping people in her local area of Teddington and Richmond upon Thames.

Nearly 20 years on, our close-knit team offers a range of personal legal services to help you in every aspect of your life. We are unique in that we can offer London-quality advice with a friendly, personal touch.

Each member of our team has many years of expertise and an in-depth understanding of what matters most to you and your family. Beyond legal advice, we can provide the emotional support you need to make it through whatever challenges are facing you at the moment.

An interesting fact about us – until a few years ago, our team was entirely made up of women – very unusual for a law firm! That’s changed now and we continue to champion equality and inclusivity in every aspect of our work.

What our clients say about us

“I am absolutely certain that without your great skill and tenacity, we would not have exchanged contracts. Thank you for being so positive, so helpful and cheerful when we needed it most. We will raise several glasses to you when we open some champagne at the new house!”

“Thank you so much for all your help and support. You have been simply amazing and always there when I needed you!! To you and your amazing team of ladies- thank you!”

“Whilst there were some unexpected twists and turns along the way, we will not forget the efficient, yet friendly way in which you handled these complex matters.”

“Thank you so much for managing [my auntie’s] estate in the professional and compassionate manner that you have. We are very grateful to you for all your hard work, patience and understanding.”

What we can do for you

That’s enough about us. Let’s talk about how we can help you:

We listen and support

We know how important it is for your lawyer to understand exactly what you are going through and what need from them. When you are both on the same wavelength, you can trust that they are helping you move in the right direction, towards the outcome you want.

We take the time to get to know our clients; we will listen closely to your concerns, provide emotional support wherever necessary, and tailor our expertise to meet your expectations.

Take advantage of over 250 years of combined experience

Come up with the whackiest legal scenario you can think of and chances are we’ll have dealt with something similar. Each member of our team has many years of experience behind them which we can apply for your benefit.

We’ve helped thousands of people through the most difficult experiences of their lives, so we always take an open, compassionate approach. Our experience also means that we know exactly what works; we will help you explore all possible options so that you can make confident decisions about how to move forwards.

No one-size-fits-all solutions here

Every individual and legal problem is different, so you need more than someone to fill in forms on your behalf. Our lawyers specialise in providing personalised solutions tailored to suit your needs. We understand how stressful dealing with any sort of legal issue can be, whether you’re separating from a partner, buying a house, or making a Will. As well as helping with the legal aspects of your matter, we are here to provide you with support and guidance to cope with this difficult time.

You’ll never be left in the dark

We understand how frustrating it is to email or call your lawyer and be left on hold for ages or to have to wait days for a response. We always aim to respond to calls and emails as quickly as possible, breaking down our advice into simple steps, so you know what to expect as your case progresses. We also provide regular updates so you will never be left in the dark.
