Very friendly service. Made me feel comfortable. Did not feel a fool when asking questions.
Keira (Head of Commercial and Property) provided excellent legal advice to the public health commissioning process within Wakefield Council. She was very well regarded by my team and more widely within the local authority. She understood the need to achieve the best outcome for citizens as well ensuring the organisation complied with its legal obligations.
Keira recently handled the conveyancing for clients buying their first home and, unfortunately, this proved to be a more protracted purchase than originally expected and with some difficult aspects that meant the clients needed frequent help and guidance. Thanks to Keira the clients were able complete the purchase and they were happy with the help and services provided by Keira, from the quality and clarity of communication throughout the process to the way their interests were represented by her.
To Charis and Julian in conveyancing team - At last we are feeling settled...Thank you very much for all that you did for us over the sale of our property. We were very appreciative of your work.
Staff on the front desk were informative and friendly.
Very Professional. We were kept well informed.
First class firm. Staff very good. Stephen Morgan was very very good. In my case everything was first class.
To Keira and the conveyancing team "thanks so much for your efficiency and perseverance in our sale and purchase. We are so happy to have moved and I'm not sure it would have happened without you!"
