The time taken by Heather Smith to ensure that I was made fully aware of all the changes (some necessary whilst others were taken on the advice given) could not have been more worthwhile.

Heather Smith displayed utmost professionalism and sensitivity in handling what at times was an emotional conversation. My wife and I are both very satisfied with the mutually agreed outcome and this is due in no small part to Heather.

All dealings concerning the estate of my late husband was dealt with in a sympathetic, friendly and efficient manner of which I was very grateful

Everything was explained in detail to me which was excellent, as my Will was not straight forward.

I found Heather Smith very helpful and felt comfortable and at ease discussing personal matters and appreciated her support.

Miss Smith was so helpful, she explained everything step by step at a very sad time.

The whole process was explained in a simple clear manner.

We are both entirely satisfied with the polite and prompt service we have received. Very many thanks.

I always feel that my interests are being well looked after wherever i have the occasion to consult you.
