Courtney Searle’s efforts on my behalf were carried out with extraordinary patience, outstanding professional support, and unfailing understanding. Time and again Courtney’s detailed response to my never ending list of questions were answered in a timely way. Her clarification of complex issues, without the use of a lot of legal jargon, enabled me to make critical decisions with confidence. I am ever grateful for all her efforts on my behalf.
I just wanted to express my gratitude in going above and beyond what I had expected. I instructed Courtney Searle to proceed with urgency with the drafting of a new will for my 97-year-old mother-in-law in the evening of when the office was shut. By 1pm the following day Courtney had met my mother-in-law and taken her revised instructions, met me for a progress update, drafted the new Will and took the final version for signing. I know I said it was urgent but – wow, thank you. Best wishes from a delighted client.
