When my mother passed some three years ago Catherine showed exactly why my father had entrusted her with the management of his estate as despite some very challenging issues Catherine demonstrated great aptitude, enthusiasm, intelligence and extraordinary legal knowledge to complete the closure of the estate.  Our family will always be indebted to Catherine for her incredible hard work and her sympathetic approach during these difficult times, her personal skills are commendable.

Catherine’s connection with people will always make her my first port of call.  She carries conversation around difficult subjects with great kindness and consideration.  After a meeting with Catherine, I am confident that my professional needs are met and feel personally looked after and cared for.

Mrs T

The advice given was thorough, concise and well explained and I was very satisfied with the final documents.  Her manner was very professional and I would happily recommend her to anyone.
