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.
