"I have never wanted to be a stuffy lawyer and believe that good communication is key. So we aim firstly to be approachable and to guide our clients in a straightforward cost-effective and understandable manner, through areas of law which can be complex and daunting to them. Whether that is making their Will, deciding whether to give Power of Attorney over their affairs, administering a loved one’s estate or helping them to find a resolution to an apparently insoluble estate dispute"
