|Therese was very kind and showed such empathy for what I was going through. She was brilliant from start to finish and I cannot recommend her highly enough.|
The business of making changes to my Will was carried out smoothly and efficiently by Susannah with whom I had a nice conversation via Skype. All the members of office staff I spoke with were equally pleasant and helpful.
I thought highly of James, he helped me make the right choices in a very difficult situation
Thank you so much Darren. You have been such a wonderful support during this whole journey. I have felt in complete trust at all times and time and again, you have gone over and beyond the call of duty for us. I have felt that you really cared. Thank you for this level of care, both personally and professionally.
I was absolutely delighted to receive your most welcome letter, to say I was astounded is putting it lightly. Thank you so much for your efforts on our behalf, Natalie.
I went with Julie for my conveyancing with the last property that we bought and chose to use her again for our latest house purchase. We have found her to be excellent both times we have dealt with her.
Thank you very much indeed for the way in which you handled my purchase. It was a stressful time and you were most supportive and kind so I want to thank you so much for that.
I had been worrying for a very long time over the need to alter my Will. I had many different problems that I needed to sort out before actually deciding how to compile my new Will. Janice visited me at home, we had a lengthy discussion over different issues and she helped me greatly to sort out my concerns. Janice started the process after discussion and after considering her first draft, I was able to make clear decisions on my final wishes and was able to make amendments to arrive at my final Will. I was very grateful for her help and advice.
