What Our Customers Say
Marie Moore was very approachable and her insight into conveyancing was spot on.
I instructed Anthony Fripp at WBW Solicitors to act on my behalf for my first house purchase. Anthony and his assistant Lucy Davis were super efficient, easily contactable at all times and remained highly professional throughout. I was kept updated weekly and the purchase completed within 6 weeks even during these uncertain times.
I would recommend Anthony and Lucy to anyone and I will continue to use WBW in the future.
