- “Absolutely excellent and efficient service. I could not fault my solicitor [Anna]. Excellent service and advice from start to finish, a great help and relief for when I needed it most. So helpful with advice and being there on screen to see a friendly face. I felt very comfortable and had absolute confidence in my solicitor. My appointed solicitor telephoned me the very next day to see how I was, and keep me up to date with a follow up e-mail. I had never been in the situation I was in before, I had an excellent result due to my experienced solicitor and a great relief to me.
I would absolutely recommend Hodge Jones & Allen to anyone seeking Solicitors advice. Would definitely use them again should I require.”
