“After my husband suddenly passed away I became aware of how important it was for myself and my children that I should prepare a new Will (and with Richard’s advice LPAs). It was my good fortune that my sister-in-law recommended Richard. Richard came to my house and gently guided me through the whole process, patiently explaining matters I didn’t fully understand, never rushing me to make decisions I wasn’ totally happy with. From start to finish, with his expert Knowledge, utmost kindness and compassion, he made a very distressing time for me completely stress-free. Needless to say I have no hesitation in recommending Richard and whenever I get the opportunity I do!”

Jill, Angmering, West Sussex

“Richard was recommended to us by friends and we contacted him during an extremely stressful, sad time, as my husband was diagnosed with terminal stomach cancer, Richard could not have been kinder or more helpful, as time was of the essence. He prepared a Power of Attorney as well as Wills in a very short time and showed unlimited compassion. It was also such a help that he visited us in our home – even at weekends.”

Gaby, Hove, East Sussex

“I knew of Richard through my daughter who has worked for him for several years. As I had a straightforward Will to bring up to date I decided to ask him to draw it up. Whilst talking to Richard he mentioned Powers of Attorney as I once had cause to use one. He explained how they had changed and now worked very differently, Richard put it in language I understood and answered all my questions clearly and patiently. He never once tried pushing me into having them done, preferring to leave me to mull it over. In fact it took me several weeks before deciding to have them drawn up. His fees were very reasonable. I would certainly recommend him.”

M.H. Goring-by-Sea, Worthing, West Sussex
