Woodfines - First Class

Claire, Svetlana, Olivia and Gabrielle were excellent from start to finish. No stone was left unturned from a legal standpoint and a customer service standpoint too. Nothing was ever a problem and they explained everything in an easy to understand way. We would recommend them to everyone.
