About

Walter Gray and Co was established in 1947 by one Walter Gray, who originally ran his general legal practice from his home in Sandown, Isle of Wight. The business expanded from there to its present day position, with offices based in Cowes and Ryde we are well placed to cover the whole of the Isle of Wight from Bembridge to Freshwater and Ventnor to Newtown and everywhere in between.

Walter Gray and Co believe in local, personal service and we are aware that a visit to you in your home or place of work saves you valuable time. Please ask us to visit you, where appropriate. We particularly wish to assist with home visits to the elderly or disabled, whenever a visit to our offices is not convenient. We are also able to offer visits to premises in Ventnor and Shanklin Regent Street. Please contact us for further details.

In offering a specialised legal service our view is that if, for example, you are buying or selling property or need to make a Will or Lasting Power of Attorney, then we can give you the independent, objective legal advice you need backed up by appropriate experience and expertise.
