Dear Chris Cumberbatch
I know professionals are extremely busy and their time is precious, but it has been virtually impossible to obtain information about how to proceed with the situation of the house.
Your advice and information has been very, very helpful.
I thank you again profusely for all your patient help.
Mr D W -
Thank-you Mike (Thew) for all your efforts with the contract. We certainly ended up with a better agreement for our company and possibly for both sides. As perhaps a fringe benefit you’ve acquired two more admirers, B, P and Lord R!
Mr W.S -
"I found Jennifer to be extremely diligent, professional and friendly when arranging my new will at very reasonable cost."
MR & MRS W -
"My wife and I are both pensioners but still in good shape in both mind body. However, we both know that this will not remain the case for ever and so we decided to draw up lasting power of attorney documents. Jennifer Humphreys at Marshall Hatchick, Woodbridge, completed the paperwork for us in a thorough, careful and considerate manner. She explained all the implications and ensured that we understood the process. Our wishes in regard to our health and welfare and property and finance are now recorded and copies lodged with our appointed attorneys. We can't look into the future but are sure this was a wise step to take."
MR & MRS S -
"We highly recommend the team dealing with wills, trusts and probate. Remaking our wills became a much better experience as Jennifer Humphreys guided us through a more understandable and flexible format making us feel confident and comfortable with the arrangements. Similarly Christopher Howard gave an exccellent efficient and friendly service whilst dealing with two probate applications. The support staff were also very helpful and friendly and good communicators."
Mr P. -
"Thank you for all your hard work and help in the last couple of years."
Mr R. -
"I am most grateful to Chris Cumberbatch for his advice and guidance in the drawing up of my Will. I found his attention to detail and sensitivity in discussing personal issues both comforting and reassuring"
