We pride ourselves on our customer care. But don’t take our word for it!

I needed advice as to whether I needed to obtain probate following the death of my husband. Charlie answered all my queries in a friendly and professional manner. He was extremely helpful with advice regarding bank accounts and land registry etc… Would recommend him to anyone who needed advice. A big thank you!!

Kirsty was extremely friendly and understanding when we were emotionally drained. She talked me through the required information and procedure precisely without any drama.

Chris explained all aspects clearly which took an enormous amount of worry from me. I am very grateful for the information I received today. My mother passed away last week I had found it difficult to have clear information especially on probate.
Charlie was a sane voice of reason, caring and articulate and with sensible clear advice. Wonderful to speak to during a difficult time during the time after our bereavement.
They gave simple clear advice on dealing with the death of my brother who had died intestate. Professional and supportive.
