Paul represented my family in forfeiture proceedings. We have used two other solicitors who were slow/ overpriced and unresponsive. We weren’t impressed. Paul was a breath of fresh air. We were very worried about the outcome and the impact on our property. He took all the stress away from us. Paul was very thorough in his knowledge and always contactable. He was very responsive and dealt with everything so swiftly and in a timely manner. Nothing was too much trouble. He guided us through the process, offering us alternatives and explained everything in precise detail and in plain language. He was attentive and kept us informed every step of the way.

He is highly professional, approachable, and exceptionally efficient. I would recommend Paul without reservation.
He is an asset to his company.
