Testimonials

I wish to extend my thanks and appreciation of your handling of my late father’s estate.

The professionalism and kindness from yourself and your team during the process is to be commended.

My father only ever trusted your firm for his legal requirements from when he returned from the Vietnam war in 1972 as a young man, right up until he updated his will months before he passed away in 2019, and I am sure as always he would have been very happy with your service.

Your advice, and prompt dealing with his estate, probate and then the sale of the house and now finalising the entitlements gave me the ability to focus on my grief instead of legal matters and this was very much appreciated.

Thank you again.

Saleena Haffenden

Thank you for helping me to work through the matters regarding dad’s Will and now the sale of the house.

Your help has been much appreciated in making these processes as easy as possible during what has been quite a stressful time.
