Emma was fantastic throughout our dealings with her. Talked us clearly through all the procedures and explained any 'legal speak' that we couldn't understand. Emails and phone calls made or sent were answered quickly. During a difficult and sad time for our family, Emma took a lot of stress and pressure off our shoulders.

Emma has been our solicitor since my father died in 2018 and his solicitor for a number of years before that. I cannot rate Emma's advice and excellent professional support highly enough. Her calm care of the whole family during such an emotional time was incredibly helpful. She also knew my father and could bring his voice into all decisions.
