"Worth every penny. Prior to speaking with you this morning I’ve had conversations with three separate solicitors about this. One … basically told me to blag it … one told me that leaving the house in the will was the best option but without explaining why; and the third talked as if this was the most complex arrangement ever proposed and seemed to confuse even himself.
"You laid everything out with perfect clarity and patience. Huge relief coming off the call."
"Sometimes I couldn’t see the road ahead through all the bureaucracy and international laws and regulations which became quite stressful and demanding, but I am now delighted that the estate has been wound up without further legal issues.
"Thank you again for all your hard work and advice. Without the support and professionalism of you, Dan and your practice, sorting out the estate would have been impossible to implement independently."
