Client Feedback- The Legal 500 2024

We have found James Leo to be very supportive and he has handled our rather complex and difficult case very professionally and tactfully given the circumstances. He has kept us fully informed at all times and has always been available to answer any queries.

Sukhi Hoonjan

i have to say they have been great, helping me through a very difficult probate case. Billing was very clear and Jack Ackrill explained everything to me. Jack was so good when I first talked with him, I was so upset but he talked to me and walked me through everything I needed to do.
