Graham recently acted for me in an eviction hearing and I couldn't have asked for more.  He explained my options thoroughly, eased my worries and managed to get the council to agree to suspend the eviction.  I would definitely recommend Graham and Howells in general.  Thank you again for helping me and my family.”

“It was very upsetting to suffer online harassment for several years, not knowing what to do about it. I had no previous experience of this and everyone said to ignore it. Until it became very threatening to my family and home. I shouldn’t have hesitated. Graham made a telephone appointment with me, cut through all the complications of the case and the two page letter which he sent to the harasser worked immediately. Graham could not have been more efficient, approachable and knowledgeable. I would not hesitate in recommending him, I only wish I had not waited so long.”

“Superb! A huge thanks to Graham for understanding exactly where I was coming from and how it was making me feel within an hour of meeting him. The letter he sent on my behalf was absolutely spot on what I wanted to say to the other party, but knew they wouldn’t listen to me (big fish / little fish), I felt so much more relaxed immediately after our meeting and fingers crossed his letter has put a stop to an ever increasingly pathetic, but nasty situation I felt myself in through no fault of my own. He listened, and acted promptly, professionally and eloquently.”
