“My appointment was with Kate Spilsbury and it was so different to previous meetings I had had with Solicitors.
Kate went through the process and explained every part in a language I could understand. I felt relaxed and very happy with the whole experience. So much so, that whilst there I made another appointment to do a completely new Will - that was extremely beneficial as she pointed out things that had not previously been covered. I felt completely comfortable and able to open up and trust Kate and her recommendations.
Once home I rang my son and told him that I was so happy that I had such a positive appointment – how many say that after discussing making their Will! His reply was that “Kate has a lovely bedside manner” and that says it all.
I am so grateful to her, I was put off these things, remembering how I had been dealt with by other Solicitors years earlier. Now I will not hesitate in recommending you to others.”
