"David, as we now approach the conclusion of the complex and very time
intensive administration of my late cousin’s Estate, of which you have
been the Executor, I wanted to express my sincere thanks and to say how
very effectively, sensitively, sympathetically, professionally and
thoughtfully you have dealt with his Estate throughout and also his
funeral arrangements – my family are greatly appreciative of everything
you have done." Mrs H, Somerset- August 2016
Thank you so much for your letter, I am delighted that the charities so close to my late cousin’s heart will benefit from his extensive collections. I am quite sure knowing him as I did, that these collections, built up over a very long lifetime, took enormous sorting out by yourself and colleagues, a job I would not envy having had to do so well done. Thank you so much for all the hard work you have done to ensure my cousin’s wishes have been carried out exactly as he had requested. It really has been appreciated by myself and my family." Mrs AK, Lewes- August 2016
"We are writing to say how pleased we were with Gemma's expert and
thorough advice whilst recently drawing up mirror wills for us. Gemma
explained clearly in plain English the legal terminology regarding our
wills plus she was a pleasure to deal with whilst being thoroughly
professional but approachable at all times."
