I was very impressed by the service received. Wills individually discussed and signed in 3 days though was offered next day! I have not used a solicitor for many years (last will 1989, house purchase 1996 and father in law probate 2004) all were satisfactory at the time but we wanted to choose someone new based (1.) on qualification/expertise, (2.) easy to reach location.

Lucy Butterfint was easy to talk to and she answered all my questions.

I did not expect to change anything we had requested, however the night before signing the will, decided to add a legacy, if possible, and although it was all prepared I was pleasantly surprised it could be altered straight away so no delay signing on day.

Over the course of the last year, Benna has helped my family and I through very difficult circumstances, of which are still ongoing.

Benna has always shown compassion and empathy and has listened and tried to understand attentively. She has done what she can with advice and actions to assist us. What is beyond her scope or departmental specialty, she has referred us and sought advice.

Benna has been diligent and when we have met in person, she has been patient and understanding. Benna is a credit to herself and the company and should be commended for her practice, work ethic, attitude and client relations.

The way Donna Aslett translated our sometimes confused requests was brilliant. When my wife and I talk at the same time it can be confusing but Donna coped exceptionally well and the finished product was exactly what we wanted. The making of our wills turned out to be a really enjoyable experience (except for paying) and we can not express our satisfaction enough. She even coped with my sense of humour.
