“I dealt with Amy in the drafting and execution of my Will recently. Under difficult circumstances (with the UK in lockdown due to Covid19), Amy provided an excellent and efficient service and kept in touch throughout the process. Watkins & Gunn solicitors have dealt with family legal matters for a number of years in my family and we are very happy and confident in recommending their legal services.”
“I have had the pleasure of being supported in writing my will by Amy during the difficult period of lock down. Throughout the process Amy has been courteous, professional and friendly giving me sound and timely support throughout the process. I would readily recommend anyone looking for similar support to contact Amy/Watkins & Gunn without hesitation. Thank you Amy.”
“I found Watkins & Gunn very professional in the service they provided for my family. Amy Thomas was the solicitor who handled my affairs and I can’t speak highly enough of the courteous and informative way she helped me. Amy went out of her way to assist myself and my husband and showed she had the knowledge to advise us in every aspect of our probate questions. I would recommend Watkins & Gunn for legal advice.”
