“Thank you for all your professional help in dealing with the estate.  You have been absolutely wonderful.”

“I am very grateful for all your endeavours and would like to thank you for acting on my behalf to settle my mother’s estate so promptly.”

“Helpful, professional and took time to explain and offer advice.”

“Gemma supported me to create my will.  She explained everything to me very clearly and helped me to understand my options.  I now have a will that I am happy with.”

“Very professional and thorough service from Gemma Hughes who drafted our wills.  Highly recommended!”

“Gemma could not have been more helpful as she walked us through the process.  She explained everything clearly and worked with us on changes that we probably should have been better prepared for when we did the first version.  She is very knowledgeable and covers the detail in an accessible way.”
