To say a deep hearted thank you
Thank you for showing my sister & I compassion & kindness. Phoebe was a joy to have in our most difficult circumstances. She is tremendously intelligent & has such depth & discernment, very important for her future career as a solicitor.
I had my last will and testament created by Phoebe who was wonderful to deal with. Clear advice and a very pleasant demeanour.
It was an appointment with nuisance potential that turned into a pleasant occasion, like having a friend for tea. Phoebe was polite, sociable, kind, and knew her job. My awkward questions were answered immediately. I was very happy with the whole occasion and the care that followed.
