Private client review:

We found Stephen excellent to deal with he explained things clearly and dealt with things efficiently and within the timeframes previously advised. Stephen was especially patient in dealing with my dad who is 83 and at times struggled to easily understand what was taking place. Stephen always ensured that he would run through things until dad had understood. We would not hesitate to recommend Stephen and are glad that we trusted him with our will and related affairs.

Peer review:

The service and advice which my wife and I received from Stephen Horscroft were excellent. We needed to set up a settlement trust and powers of attorney on behalf of our son who has moderate learning difficulties. Stephen handled our situation efficiently, professionally and took much of the stress out of the process for us. In particular, he helped our son to understand the process at hand. Stephen was patient, quick to respond to our emails and instructions and explained everything in detail. We shall continue to instruct Stephen and your firm and to recommend to others.
