Jim Lee heads the Hereford office. He has spent his whole career with Gabbs, having joined in 1977 as a trainee solicitor, after gaining an Honours degree in Law from the University of Central England.

Having had experience in almost all areas of legal practice and in particular 25 years as a criminal advocate, Jim now specialises in property matters including residential sales and purchases, mortgages and commercial property matters such as small building estates easements and overage clauses. During his career, Jim has dealt with thousands of property sales and purchases. He now spends about 70% of his time on residential matters and the remainder on commercial property matters.

His interests include his large family, Tottenham Hotspur F.C. and, being half Welsh and Half Irish, following both those rugby teams. Listening to music is a favourite pastime especially Al Stewart and Paul Simon.


Thank you for all you have done over the past few months. The knowledge that we have been in safe legal hands definitely made the whole buying and selling process less stressful.  We really appreciate your generosity of time in the final few weeks.
We thank you wholeheartedly for all your work over many years. You have always gone the extra mile to get things right, and have been so lovely to deal with...

- Mr and Mrs B, Birmingham

We are extremely grateful for your professional support and guidance through what felt like a daunting task ahead, you gave us confidence and made us feel at ease.

– Mr and Mrs A, Hereford

Calmness and professionalism combined with excellent communication in the face of considerable frustration and ineptitude by others.
