Excellent advice, all my questions and concerns were addressed by Ben

Client

I was particularly impressed with Ben’s attention to detail and clear explanation of the finer points.

Client

The service was accurate, and quick. We have not had a problem with the contract.

Client

I do feel that both Ben and Julie have been excellent throughout this. The money they have, they were only ever going to get a strong law firm and I feel they would have got the impression throughout this that I too have obtained the services of people that know what they were doing and couldn't be overpowered or pushed around. I'm convinced that ultimately the strong showing from the two of you is what has actually got an agreement out of court rather than them pitying me so I wanted to express my genuine appreciation to you both.
