Very helpful, although I had my decisions unchanged from when we both made our original will. Although have not need use of a solicitor often – fortunately.
I am writing to thank you for all you have done concerning mum’s estate and dad’s LPA.
In particular, I am grateful for various advice you gave and for your willingness to help.
You were, for example, happy to go and see dad in the home and the arrangements you
made for his LPA achieved what was desired.
I benefitted from how you dealt with matters; and how you dealt with me! - July 2018
