My clients love what I do

“I was very happy with the service I received in the probate of my late wife’s will and decided to have my own (amateur) will tested. I was very glad I did. John was able to point out potential difficulties and clarified ambiguities. The whole process was painless and straightforward.”

“My comments refer solely to the work carried out on my late wife’s estate. Throughout the long process when John Cregan had to deal with delays caused by other public organisations I was kept informed at each stage. Despite the Covid-19 crisis, documents for my signature were delivered to my place of residence and my safety was guaranteed. I understood exactly what progress was being made and the costs were clearly explained.

Having spent thirteen years as an assessor of customer service in the public sector I was very interested to see how Churchers approached my case. I was not disappointed: at every stage I received a professional, sensitive and courteous service not only from John Cregan and Ruth Brooks but also from other staff members whom I met during my visits to their firm. I will certainly recommend them to others.” February 2021

“The times I have needed the services of a solicitor, I have found Churchers to be extremely helpful, courteous and efficient.” December 2020
