May I take this opportunity to say how much I appreciated your efforts in this regard. I feel that I was fully justified, once more, in calling on WBW Solicitors to handle this work, safe in the knowledge that they would have an expert to hand.
After a meeting with Amy Read, and further dealings with Deborah Ogle, they came up with an imaginative answer to my problem. All at WBW could not have been more helpful and I am very pleased with the outcome.
It was clearly evident that the care you took at the outset of my case to protect my own situation put me in a much stronger and safer position to fight my case.
Nothing has been too much trouble, phone calls returned promptly and I felt that my well being has always been at the forefront of your mind at all times.
You managed to explain a complex matter in a very straightforward way which I found easy to understand.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your colleagues for the exceptional level of service you have provided. I am aware that dealing with my uncles estate, has at times been incredibly difficult. Thank your for your tolerance, patience and assistance.
