“Dear Mr Wolton,

I would like to take this opportunity to send you some feedback on my experience of using your firm to manage the sale and purchase of the above named properties.

My mother was desperate to move near to me following the loss of my father in late 2016. Fortunately, my neighbours decided to move to Spain so an opportunity arose whereby I my mother could move next door.

We were fortunate enough to instruct Sofia Khan from your firm who undertook the work on both the sale of my mother’s property and the purchase of my neighbours.

Often when customers are dissatisfied, they will take the time to write and communicate this. I have taken the time today to write to you to highlight the exceptional work undertaken by a Sofia Khan.

This was by no means an easy transaction and had extraordinary tight deadlines for us to complete on both the sale and purchase of the properties.

I have worked with solicitors for over 30 years and in all that time I have rarely had the pleasure to meet someone with Sofia’s dedication to her work and remarkable customer care.

Sofia’s professionalism when interacting with my mother’s purchasing solicitors was outstanding, she remained calm, rational and steadfast until she obtained the responses to enquires made. Without Sofia Khan’s perseverance and industrious persistence, this sale/purchase would never have taken place.

The estate agent we used to sell my mother house phoned me on a number of occasions to communicate to myself and my mother how impressed he was with Sofia’s tenacity, professionalism and customer care. The estate agent told me that he would be recommending Sofia to his clients to the point that she would have so much work ‘she wouldn’t be able to take any holiday’.

Again, I thought that it was important that I write to you and highlight our satisfaction with the service and care provided by Sofia Khan, she is a credit to you and your firm.

Yours sincerely”

Tony is truly excellent at what he does – he has an extraordinarily profound understanding of what is required in any given situation and his communication skills are second to none. A highly regarded solicitor in his field, and one whom I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending.”

“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)…”

“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.”

“Tony, thanks for everything.  As usual, a fantastic, thorough and professional service at all times.  Sally, I and the kids are very grateful.”
Below is an extract from an email from an Argentinian client:

“Dear Nick, words are difficult to find to describe my heartfelt gratitude, you have been a rock, a tiger, a friend and amazing all along in getting the best for my case.  THANK YOU. MUCHAS GRACIAS.”
