At Dillex Solicitors we are able to provide the full range of services of a notary public (England and Wales).

Typically, this involves the authentication and certification of a wide variety of documents for use overseas for either personal or business purposes.

Where necessary we are also able to obtain the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office apostille (or legalisation) for a notarised document and, if required further certification from the relevant consulate / embassy of the country for which the document is destined. The apostille is a form of confirmation of the identity of a notary which reassures the country to which the document is being sent that the person purporting to be a notary does indeed have that status.

Our notary services are regulated by the Faculty Office of Archbishop of Canterbury.


The range of documents we notarise include:

  • powers of attorney (typically in favour of overseas attorneys / lawyers)
  • sworn statements, declarations & affidavits
  • documents relating to litigation / disputes overseas
  • documents dealing with land, property and finances overseas
  • documents relating to overseas assets of a deceased person
  • company and business documents for use where a company is registering overseas entity or is registering, for example, a trademark
  • personal documents for applications to marry or to work abroad
  • documents relating to the overseas travel of unaccompanied minor children
  • confirmation of the identity of individuals
  • confirmation of the identity of directors, secretaries, and other officers of a company.
  • certified copies of identification documents
  • verification of academic certificates


Ogochukwu Angela Ezeoke is our notary. She is also a solicitor. She is able to deal with most notarial documents including company notarisations and for private individuals.

As a notary, Ms Ezeoke is regulated by the Faculty Office of Archbishop of Canterbury.

We are able to identify your requirements quickly and effectively and advise the best way to proceed and inform you of any additional steps which may be necessary to authenticate the document in a form that is acceptable in the country of its destination.

Where the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office apostille / legalisation is required we can arrange postal apostille / legalisation which usually takes up to 2-3 weeks to process where required.


Angela generally charges a fixed fee per document, but where there are multiple documents or a number of copies of the same document, a discount is sometimes possible. Alternatively, we may, where appropriate, work on a time spent basis. Angela will be able to advise of charges. Incurred disbursements will be charged as an additional fee at the end of the transaction. For further information please refer to our fees section on this website.
