About us

We pride ourselves on providing dependability that our clients can count on.

For over 50 years our focus has remained the same; offering our clients more than just legal support. As professionals, we aim to rise to the daily challenge of not just meeting your needs, but exceeding them. For us, that means anticipating changes in the law, exceeding your expectations and listening to your needs so we can anticipate results.

We value long-term relationships, and as our clients’ needs change, so too does the Watkins Tapsell service offering.
