An excellent firm with exceptional service. Louise has a wealth of experience and knowledge when it comes to writing... wills, sorting out the interminable probate, liaising with solicitors/estate agents and tying up estates. She was a pleasure to work with being very efficient and thorough, as well as being friendly, calm and had an unending supply of optimism. I thoroughly recommend this firm and would happily use them more

This initial trust was well placed because the service was flawless. The complicated pile of correspondents we handed across was distilled into very clear components and the whole process simplified. This was invaluable at a difficult time. Highly more

Thanks so much Louise, you've taken a big weight off our minds!
