About Us

A personal service given in a relaxed and friendly fashion.


Kingsfords is a long established highly reputable firm providing expertise in many areas of law both to commercial concerns and private individuals.

Kingsfords was founded in the mid 1880s by Julius Kingsford and the firm’s development since that time was initially linked to the growth of Ashford and East Kent, but now our clients are based nationally across England and Wales and beyond.  Kingsfords has developed both in response to and in anticipation of the needs of our clients and today, with over 50 staff, we are able to provide a wide range of services to both private and commercial clients.

We have achieved Lexcel accreditation (a symbol of excellence within the legal profession).

In a recent survey, over 99% of clients responding said that would use our services again.

We talk to our clients in plain language to ensure that we understand their requirements and they understand our advice and legal procedures.

We appreciate the need to work to tight deadlines.

The firm has six departments:

At Kingsfords we pride ourselves on not only being able to advise on specific matters but also to provide that general and pragmatic advice which is so often needed.

We have two centrally located Ashford offices, as well as offices in both Cranbrook and Hythe.

Our head office is ideally situated being close to the M20 and only a few minutes’ walk to Ashford International Railway Station with its fast links to London.
