Many thanks for all your help over the two years with the Contentious Probate case – which helped to make things as painless as possible. I particularly appreciated how speedily Wollens and in particularly Deborah Baker and her assistants dealt with everything and your succinct emails and letters, free from unnecessary legal verbiage. You also provided just the right amount of sympathy and understanding of how this opened old scars whilst remaining appropriately business-like. Thank you to all involved in the Barnstaple office.
