Our core business involves commercial property and as Marshall Hatchick's real estate partner, Colin's exhaustive knowledge in this area has proved invaluable in helping us through a wide variety of complex issues. We look forward to continuing to work with him in the years to come."


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."



"Thanks for all your work on our behalf, we could not have done this ourselves."


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.  

Yours sincerely,

Ms Burton
