“Thank you for yours and your secretaries prompt attention to our queries as and when they arose (sic)”

Excellent professional service combined with a very human approach. Very appreciative of the help and guidance provided by Mrs Crumbie throughout the process.

We have always found Mrs Crumbie to be very approachable, that’s why we keep coming back to her/you.

I have been treated very politely and promptly. Things I didn’t quite understand have been explained in a friendly manner.

Masayo was very thorough in explaining the process involved in the preparation of our Wills and was a pleasure to deal with.

Mrs Crumbie was very friendly and approachable – always available to deal patiently with our various queries. Thanks also to Sylvia for her help.

I was kept up to date on the progression of the matter and meetings were arranged at my convenience in a friendly way.

I was delighted with the whole process, felt I was listened to and now have a clear concise Will, which is a vast improvement on my old one prepared by another firm. No spelling mistakes for starters!

Excellent professional service. Good advice and would not hesitate to recommend. Both Mrs Crumbie and Hart Reade.

It can be a daunting experience when you need help at this level. But I was put at ease immediately.

Very pleasant and helpful always, thank you.
