My wife and I were impressed by the professionalism and guidance offered in updating our Wills. We were supported throughout the process and kept fully informed of the progress and what was required of us in a warm but professional manner.
Mr & Mrs Kerrou
What Our Clients Say About Kate
I have been a client of Tollers since 1976. They have dealt with house purchases and sales plus 3 previous probates, I have to say that my husband’s probate seemed to take a long time even though we were out of COVID restrictions. My grandmothers Will was particularly troublesome but did not take so long. Alison Taylor was always helpful and did her best to get things moving.
