What Clients Say
  • Dealing with a solicitor such as Theo it was clearly evident he very experienced in the area of law we required assistance with, understood our requirements and was able to translate the legal and technical ‘jargon’ into a language we could clearly understand. Theo’s ‘tableside’ manner in the office with us was excellent, taking time to explain the steps in the process and he provided a very professional and friendly service.

    Mike & Helen Myers
