How we became what we are today


Jarmans Solicitors evolved from the old Sittingbourne firm of Winch Greensted and Winch, established in 1864.  Jarmans strives to maintain its established standards whilst moving with the times.


In 1987 the firm was taken over by Maidstone firm Argles & Court and moved from its premises in Park Road to its present modern suite of offices in Bell House.


The present practice was “born” in 1989 out of a demerger from that firm.


The firm as a whole has the enthusiasm to continue to provide clients with the personal service they want from a solicitors' firm.


"Rajinder Rai is a credit to Jarmans solicitors.

As a client you feel confident that she is always working in your best interests and will try to keep your legal expenditure to what is absolutely necessary. Given the legal complexities, she works hard to ensure that she explains things in a way that can be understood and is always careful to manage expectations.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Rajinder to family or friends to see if she could help with a legal issue."

"We should like to thank you and all Jarman's staff involved in the sale and purchase of our properties, for their efficient help and assistance in these transactions."



"l recently started using Jarmans to handle my divorce mainly because of their reputation.

This is quite a stressful time and i was made to feel at ease with Gordon Johnson who is handling my case. l was given clear and straightforward advice and information as to what i needed to do and where to proceed next.

Any time i needed advice, had a question or booked an appointment it was dealt with speedily, on the same day in most cases. l would recommend Jarmans to to anyone needing legal advice and cannot fault their professional approach to matters in hand."



“No matter what stage you are at in your business you will always need legal support, whether it’s for growing your business, looking over contracts or just needing advice with a business legal situation. Jay Sahota has been very timely, professional and an expert within his field when dealing with legal matters. I highly recommend Jay Sahota and his team at Jarmans Solicitors”

"Rajinder Rai took on my case at Jarmans solicitors recently and the speed at which she turned around my extremely difficult case has been amazing. I was to the point of losing a sale on my property and within a week has put me in the best position possible to now complete my sale.


Not once did i feel like i needed to keep on and speed things up. Rajinder moved with such speed and efficiency that before i knew it my very difficult case was resolved.


I can't thank Rajinder enough as she has lifted a weight of my shoulders and really turned my situation around."



"I would like to commend you Duane on first impressions and the efficient service you gave me today with the update…, you were very helpful and motivated to move the transaction along understanding the
urgency now required."

"Dear Gordon,

Very many thanks for your excellent work re my Divorce case.

A first class performance from Mr Gordon Johnson at JARMANS Solicitors. I was very impressed with the service given, all the tactics applied and the good result achieved. Also many to your secretary Sheryl. Kind regards"



"Gordon likes a challenge and my case was just that. He installed confidence in me from the very first meeting and had a new approach, he grabbed it with both hands as if it was personal.


Gordon and his trusted team have turned the whole case around, his knowledge, his confidence and his attitude just to writing my very detailed statement has made all the difference. Gordon instructed a fantastic barrister who was perfect for my case she was an excellent choice. I've never felt more confident going into the court room and so happy coming out. Have already recommended! Thank you again! "



"Andrew thanks for all your help and getting the paperwork sorted at the 11th hour, you really helped us out."



"Andrew, Through your selfless act of kindness, you gave me the strength to stand my ground and see the final stages of my grievance through successfully.

Thank you for your professional advice and taking the time and interest to help me.

I very much appreciate the support and time you gave me. Thank you! Kind regards"

I have had little success in finding a reliable solicitor over the last 11 years, but I think I may have now found one!

Kind regards, JC Director"

"Thanks for all your hard work on our behalf re P."



"Rajinder, Thank you so much for your professional and helpful approach at this stressful time."



"Dear Duane, James and Sue

I wanted to thank you for working so hard to ensure a successful sale of our property. Whilst the buyers were trying to push up the price unfairly, your advice and support was excellent, meaning that we saved a lot of money, and stopped their tactics mid-track. It is such a relief to have completion today, and to know that this stressful time has been made so much easier than it otherwise would have been.

A huge well done to all the team, and many thanks to you three especially.

Thank you again."



"Nicola and Nathan,

I wanted to thank you personally for the excellent service you provided to a client of mine in recent days.

My business is looking after the financial planning needs for my clients through investment management, but also their overall financial security and the need for wills, trusts and estate planning is paramount to the service we give.

Being able to relay on a fellow professional to provide this service is an important part of the client relationship built up over the years.

Having received an urgent request for help from my client, I forwarded his details to you outlining his concerns to set up Lasting Powers of Attorney for his wife.

That same evening you were able to make contact with him, fix an appropriate time to visit his home in North London and complete the necessary paperwork, all within a space of a few days.

I know that my client was relieved to get things done quickly, but more than that, was so impressed by the extra mile service you provided to give him and his family the peace of mind he so dearly needed.

Having used your services for a number of my important clients, I have no hesitation in recommending your professional services for Will Writing, Estate Planning, Lasting Powers of Attorney and Trust work, and will
continue to do so.

Thank you again for a job well done and a very satisfied and relieved client of mine.

Yours sincerely"

IP, Independent Financial Adviser

Nathan dealt with our query and I must say could not have given a better service than we received. As our query was a small one I was prepared to wait as I felt they had more urgent things to do. How wrong I was and it was dealt with very quickly. A first class service and a satisfied client."

Well done to Duane and his superb team.



"In this day and age everyone is quick to scream and shout over negativity, however I wanted to make you aware how impressed we are with Lauren Murray! I feel you have an outstanding employee there. Nothing is ever too much trouble and it’s very reassuring from my side of things, that if I cannot get hold of you Duane, I have no hesitation in speaking with Lauren. She is always very quick to reply with any enquiries I have inside and outside of normal office hours."
