About Us

We are a firm of leading solicitors in Essex


John Fowlers has grown to become a leading law firm practising across Essex and throughout East Anglia. We attribute our expansion to the firm’s core values, set down by our founding partners over 90 years ago.

Our firm was established by town clerk, John Fowler, in 1924. It was John's belief that clients and their unique personal interests should be held at the centre of legal services, which is why our people have always championed the needs of our clients above all else. That ethos continues to this very day.

From our friendly, warm and welcoming solicitors offices in Colchester, Brightlingsea, West Mersea and Clacton-on-Sea, our expert team work tirelessly to deliver expert, value for money services that really make a difference where it matters. Families and businesses across the region retain use of our legal services because they value our direct approach and commitment to achieving the best results in every case we manage.

Since opening, our firm has undergone many changes but still champions the importance of delivering quality legal services to families and businesses throughout the region. We have grown steadily over the years and continue to do so thanks to our commitment to industry innovation, which helps us to progress in ways others have not yet considered. 

Our solicitors are specialists in their field, with each carefully scouted and selected to join the prestigious John Fowlers team. Each member of our team is committed to delivering reassuring and reliable legal advice throughout East Anglia.

As well as serving our clients, at John Fowlers we are proud to play an active part in the growth and development of our local community. We support several local charities, organisations and community groups as we have always felt it is our duty to give back to the community that has given us so much.
