What Our Clients Say About Ruth
We had first contact with Ruth some 5+ years’ ago on a (family) probate matter and immediately felt comfortable with her. Had circumstances been different, we would have used her (Tollers’) services at that time. More recently, we were badly let down by a Bedford solicitor (on behalf of our daughter) on another matter. So, although not local, we went back to Ruth this year when we needed to update our Wills and for advice on a property matter. From start to finish, the service given and received was exemplary. Ruth immediately puts you at ease and tells it like it is in plain English – no frills – which is exactly what you want. Thanks must also go to Cherryl Law for her assistance.
