What our customers say

Solicitor

Thank you very much indeed for this report and for your prompt delivery.
I must say I am incredibly impressed with your service and will most definitely be using it again.
You definitely deserve a well earned drink this evening for that result!
My client is so chuffed as it means not having to push back court proceedings (which they have had to do before) as we can send the paperwork there so you have saved them a great deal of time and money which is fantastic!

Thanks again

Customer Service Recommendation

Hi,

Just a quickie to thank you for all your help and advice in the initial stages of this below case, over a year ago... I was so despondent initially, but you invited me to call, talked me through the necessary steps and recommended the transferring of it to the High Court etc
I have today received notification that they finally tracked her down and that her dad finally paid the debt which has now been transferred into my account, so all's well that ends well.
Many many thanks once again to yourself and your team and I will certainly recommend you to anyone I know who needs similar help.
