Having spoken to several solicitors about a simple question, Sue Ball gave me the answer I was looking for. She was straight to the point not trying to over sell as I have found with most other solicitors. They are now in my phone book as 'my Solicitors'.
Very professional advice and suited my needs for what I needed around what time. Very friendly and would recommend highly.
Really friendly, professional advice and assistance provided during a very difficult time. The help provided enabled me to conclude terms of a Settlement Agreement with minimal fuss, greatly reducing what was an otherwise stressful moment in time.
Thank you for your kindness and support.
