Due to my husband being bed ridden in a nursing home the matter was dealt with there with empathy and compassion in a most efficient and professional way. What could have been a traumatic experience was not.

Kathryn made it all seem very straight forward, competent and friendly.

Was most impressed with the sympathetic approach and help my niece and I received from Kathryn Wheeldon on the occasion of the death of my sister. She explained everything simply and fully. I was so pleased I opted to ask her to draw up a new will and lasting power of attorney.

Excellent service and communication from Kathryn Wheeldon. Thank you.
