Lasting power of attorney - myself and spouse

Natalie was friendly and knowledgeable, answered all my questions in an understandable manner, and came up with some suggestions that I had not even thought of. Excellent experience.

A very good and professional service every question was answered and taken care of. I just want to say a big thank you to Woodfines for a great service.
