  • My clients love what I do
  • "Diana Deacon from the Cowes office was recommended by a friend for the sale of our London home and she also just recently helped with buying a home in Cornwall. She is absolutely the most professional and efficient solicitor I could hope for. Everything was considered and completed and confirmed before I even thought of the next step. She was so reliable that without her the long chain with the sale in London and the uncertainty of buying in Cornwall during a very hot market would have been a nightmare. I cannot thank her enough for all the excellent help and support she provided." Aug 21
