Dear Louise and Chris,
I would also like to take this opportunity to thank you for your high professionalism. What I liked most really, during the course of this work, is that you kept me informed at each stage as what you are doing and what would be the next move and time span for it. Ezideen Hasso
Your support during difficult and drawn out divorce proceedings was invaluable. Firstly you gave me an early appointment, secondly you applied fair and appropriate fees but best of all I found Mr Atkinson to be precise with his assessment of my needs, and particular in his conduct during the accuracy of title transfer documentation. Gillian M Swan MSc
Thank you to Chris and yourself for a speedy and professional service.
Kind regards the Hobsons and Adamsons
