Reviews
“I wanted to thank you very, very sincerely for everything you have done for me regarding my Will. It is an immense weight off my mind to know that I now have a Will that truly represents my wishes and that protects my children if I cannot. I have destroyed the previous Will written by Alan Edge of Ellis Jones and trust you will do the same. Words of thanks are so easy to say and so easily written. In Russian we have a powerful expression that we use after saying or writing words to emphasis their genuine sincerity. It’s not easy to translate the meaning or the power of this expression from Russian into English, but I hope you will try to understand and will just pause for a few seconds in your busy schedule. The translation would simply be: “I thank you Rebecca for everything you have done for me and for my children and these are not just words”. ” Mr Brett
“Rebecca dealt with probate after my mother passed away in September 2015. We were very grateful to find that Rebecca had a warm friendly demeanour at a time that was very difficult for us. Rebecca was very professional and efficient in dealing with our case and kept us informed at every stage of a lengthy and complex process. I have no hesitation in recommending her to prospective clients.” Ms Bartlett
