    Client
  • We really appreciate the very professional way in which you have dealt with my mother’s estate. It is very reassuring to know that someone understands all the rules so well, especially at a time of loss, when perhaps one is not always as competent as in normal times. She told me how much she used to enjoy your visits to Sutton Manor when you came to discuss her affairs. Thank you for all the trouble you have taken over many years with our family’s affairs.

    Client
  • I am extremely grateful to you and your excellent team at Debenhams Ottaway for all your care and hard work over the past few years. On behalf of all of us, both past and present, I would like to say a most sincere thank you to you personally and to everybody who has worked with you. It has always been a great pleasure to work with you, and you have always given us the most sage, timely and reliable advice.
