About the Firm

Joyce A. Good Hammond and Richard Hammond are partners in both their personal and professional lives.  They were married in 2006 and established Hammond Good Solicitors in late 2007.

The firm is a full-service legal practice covering all the major areas of civil and criminal law together with a number of niche specialisms.  Joyce and Richard believe that the best marketing comes from happy clients and as can be seen from the testimonials on this website, they have made a habit of making their clients happy through the provision of timely and comprehensive advice together with guidance and representation in court when required.  Naturally this service has a value for the firm’s clients and Hammond Good Solicitors is always upfront in relation to fees whether charging at the hourly rate or through the agreement of fixed fees where the work to be undertaken is quantifiable (exempli gratia conveyancing, Wills, district court work, etcetera).
