Recently helped me with the purchase of a business. Incredibly friendly and was treated equally. Very attentive with e-mails and telephone. Excellent at problem solving. Was never pressured into spending more money than neccesary to get the case dealt with. Would 100% return for any legal matters in the future

Recently helped me with the purchase of a business and lease contract.

Incredibly friendly and was treated equally. Very attentive with e-mails and telephone. Excellent at problem solving.
Was never pressured into spending more money than neccesary to get the case dealt with. There was always somebody who could help available, as there was more than one person in the loop.

Would 100% return for any legal matters in the future
