Paula, thanks for all your help on mum’s probate – at a time of distress it was reassuring to have someone speedily and accurately tie up all the affairs. If anybody else required your service I wouldn’t hesitate to refer them to you.

Jennifer Wright

Only too happy to say I was most pleased with the help and advice you gave me on preparing my Will and that your direction on my request was great.

Esther Poynton

The administration of my husband’s estate raised at least one complex issue and several others that while maybe simple, required some thought and attention on your part. The process was handled extremely well, it went smoothly and resulted in a good outcome. Thanks for all your help and for being so easy and pleasant to work with!

Mrs Eyton-Hughes

After problems with our previous solicitors it was important for us to find a solicitor we could trust and rely on. Colin Freeman informed us of information that we were unaware of regarding wills and also helped us with lasting Powers of Attorney. We would recommend Freeman Jones Solicitors.

Susan Chick

Colin Freeman and his staff dealt with my will efficiently, courteously and with humour (much appreciated). I would certainly recommend the firm to friends and family.
