“ Thank you to Steven [Evans] for his kindness, patience, efficiency and professionalism throughout this process.  I didn’t think my dad would cope well with the requirements but Steven’s calm nature and knowledge made a fairly grim situation much easier to bear.  We contacted other solicitors at the start of this process, and their hard-sell approach was dreadful – thank goodness for you and your team! ”
