Completely satisfied with the thoroughness and kindness shown over our dealings with you. Many thanks
My husband and I are so grateful for the kind way everything was clearly explained to us. As one gets older, legal matters can be a worry. Thank you.
We approached Laura to amend our Wills with what we had assumed in our minds would be very simple amendments… we assumed wrongly when Laura explained the complexity of our property situation regarding our respective Wills…
We also had a very restrictive time scale Laura had to work to as I had to return to Spain within 2 weeks of our initial meeting…
Laura’s attitude towards the complexity she was confronted with and the time scale to work to was nothing short of ultra professional ; everything was explained calmly and succinctly so we understood immediately what she required from us and what she had to do….
The bottom line is our Wills were prepared with time to spare for which I have nothing but fulsome praise for the efforts of Laura in making what was seemingly a difficult process very painless …
…..a huge thank -you ….
I was very pleased with the excellent prompt service I received, at all times I was treated with courtesy and a friendly manner.
Always good friendly service.
I felt very comfortable visiting your practice during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Excellent service – Laura most helpful.
Laura is always very efficient but at the same time kind. We always feel very happy with her advice.
Courteous, friendly and efficient.
We were impressed with the arrangements put in place as this all happened under Covid-19 lockdown conditions.
Just to thank Laura again for coming to my home in order for me to sign my Will and her secretary to act as witness as I am unable to leave home.
Laura has given me an excellent service and always approachable.
Laura has provided excellent service to us in the recent winding up of my father’s Will Trust. She has provided her customary cheerful, prompt and very helpful professional advice and support throughout, on the phone, in person and by email. And in particular Laura has shown great consideration and care towards my Mum, including visiting her in a nursing home on two occasions.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend or use Hart Reade again. Laura couldn’t have looked after us better and explained everything in detail.
The service I received was excellent!
Excellent service from the receptionist and lawyer.
I was very pleased with the service provided.
All went smoothly. Thank you.
Very happy with the efficient and prompt service, and congratulate Hart Reade Solicitors for their participation in the free Wills scheme.
