Client Reviews

“Thank you Charles for the update and efficiency…I have built a new positive image of parts of the profession (having had some pretty rotten experiences in the past)…”
— Client of Charles Newman
“Charles, We would like to thank you sincerely for the work conducted on our behalf. We are also very grateful for your generous gesture with respect to the reduction you have applied. You are correct in stating that the sums are still not inconsiderable, however, over the many years of our relationship we have both seen our respective businesses prosper and grow. So it is not surprising that the work we have asked of you has got more varied and complex. Edwards Duthie Shamash Solicitors is always our first port of call and of course we remain totally loyal to yourself and your firm as we have unwavering confidence in the professional advice/work we ask of you. Once again our sincere gratitude for your wholehearted efforts in assisting us with this deal not only whilst it was alive but also after its collapse.”
