Pat Smith

Practice Area

I deal with residential conveyancing, sales, purchases, re-mortgages, leases, transfers, easements and all aspects of moving house.  I provide a thorough service and keep in regular contact with my clients.

The prompt and personal service provided to local clients at Gotelee’s Hadleigh office continues a long tradition and mirrors my own approach.

Gotelee Solicitors are proud to be accredited by the Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme and a member of numerous lenders’ panels, allowing us to undertake work for both our clients and their lender in order to streamline transactions.


I was educated in Nottingham, I moved to Suffolk in 1978.  I worked in conveyancing for a firm of Woodbridge solicitors from 1980, initially as a conveyancing secretary but then studied for the Institute of Legal Executives qualification.  I qualified in 1996 as a Fellow of the Institute of Legal Executives and am now a Chartered Legal Executive. I joined the Gotelee team in 2012.

Client Profile

I work with the whole range of clients, from those who are buying their first home to those who buy and sell investment properties. I am able to help those who are ‘buying to let’ and can aid in drawing up tenancy agreements. I am able to support clients through matrimonial sales or re-mortgages. As well as providing independent legal advice to clients.

Some recent testimonials from my clients

My wife and I completed on our purchase yesterday. I will not bore you on the complexity of the transaction however none of this would have been possible without the sterling efforts of Mrs Pat Smith. “Pat was simply wonderful in all aspects and her patience with numerous calls from my wife and I was very much appreciated – you have an excellent ambassador for Gotelee in Pat and we cannot thank her enough. We were recommended to Gotelee by my father-in-law and we in turn will highly recommend your services to our friends and colleagues.” Anon

“Pat was wonderful, I cannot praise her highly enough” AM, Ipswich

Other Information

Although I moved to Devon in 2007 for family reasons, I missed Suffolk and was thankfully able to return in 2012.

When I’m not at Gotelee I enjoy cycling, walking, growing vegetables.
