  2. Will writing for myself and partner

    David was very professional yet friendly with heaps of practical advice. He put us both at ease and helped us organise our affairs without seeming intrusive. He came to our home to organise everything. Nothing was too much effort. A lovely gentleman. Would highly recommend his services.

  6. Prepared wills for both myself and my partner

    Both myself and my partner were impressed with the assistance and service provided. Dave talked through everything first and covered things that we would never have even thought of. We were provided with copies of our wills to check over before the actual wills were prepared. Dave was more than happy to talk things over and answer our questions. I was so impressed that I gave his details to my work colleagues who were also provided with invaluable assistance. I did have a will that was written free of charge through work and it was so basic that it wasn't really fit for purpose. It was money well spent and I would recommend him to anyone.
