What Our Clients Say About Tom
Martin Hill and Tom Kings advised my late father on various legal matters relating to his Will and estate over several years prior to his demise. Father was elderly and registered blind which made dealing with such matters particularly daunting. He often expressed to me his great appreciation for the clear way that they both explained various complex legal points to him, and the quality of their advice. As Father’s carer, I personally witnessed the exceptionally kind and genuinely caring way that both Martin and Tom assisted him over the years, and would highly recommend them to anyone in similar circumstances requiring legal advice in their fields of expertise.

What Our Clients Say About Tom
Tollers were professional in leading us through our challenge on a relatives Will.  Tom Kings co-ordinated and set out the history of our case, in what was a complicated background, so that our position was as strong as possible.  This enabled us to gain a favourable offer of settlement without having to mediate or go to court - an ideal position for us, saving further time and money and we are delighted with the outcome.
Miss. Leach
What Our Clients Say About Tom
The terms of contract between myself and Tollers were clearly explained to me and fully respected. The case was a very long and protracted one requiring detailed attention, good judgement and sensitivity. The solicitor (Tom Kings) was excellent in every way and his secretary (Jane) was brilliant too. A great deal of compassion was also in evidence. I am also very pleased to report a successful outcome. The totality of my experience with Tollers has been one of perfection.
