Testimonials

“Once again we are very pleased with the service provided by Howells.

On this occasion it was the most important issue regarding the preparation and writing of our Wills, which were not exactly straightforward in what we needed to arrange.

With Lindsey’s expertise, patience and understanding of the situation, combined with the detailed explanation of queries arising, we were able to achieve what was required.

It is particularly commendable in the present situation, although face to face appointments are preferable, with our ‘telephone meeting’ we were made to feel welcome and comfortable experiencing no difficulty with this and subsequent conversations.

We have every confidence in their services and would not hesitate in using them again or highly recommending them to all.” – P.F, May 2020

“I just want to thank you for all your hard work on my behalf. It was so reassuring to know i was in safe hands during a very upsetting time. You handled everything with patience and professionalism.” – March, 2020

“I can not recommend Howells highly enough and particularly Lindsey Rawson. We have dealt with her on several occasions and as well as being very professional she was very kind, caring and helpful. She was particularly lovely with my 97 year old Mum and her 95 year old friend. I will definitely return” – January, 2020 

“Professional, yet very friendly service. All questions answered to put you at ease. Could not have asked for a better service.” – DB, April 2019

“Once again may I thank you for a first class service, you made what appeared to be before I started a very daunting enterprise, very easy flowing.” – Wills and Probate Client, June 2018

“I thank you, for ensuring my Aunt and Uncle’s affairs have been settled in good order. It is something they both would have cared about and dearly wished for. I feel you have been able to help restore their dignity and leave their estate/affairs in good order – which is what we all must wish/hope for. You have done this in a way that alleviated much if not all of the anxiety and effort from me and my brother for which I am very grateful.
I would like to thank you personally for your diligence and support and your insight and understanding, particularly in regards to working with my brother who can be both anxious and forgetful. Your advice and support has enabled him to participate fully in the settling of our Uncles affairs and I think this helps to allow him to feel useful and of value.” – Probate Client, Aug 2018
