Since my case completed, I never had the chance to thank you for everything you did for me. You honestly have no idea how much it meant at really one of the most difficult times in my life, and certainly in my career. From the moment I came in to see you, I felt a weight had been lifted and your experience, professionalism and knowledge guided and assisted me to achieving a good outcome. I truly can’t thank you and the team enough for your support and guidance throughout the process I have been through.
I recently engaged Poole Alcock to check a contract for me. I found the process very clear and straight forward. Eve was very thorough and professional, explaining all of the legal aspects in detail. I would certainly recommend you to others.
Thank you for your time today, and all the advice given, very much appreciated and you made me feel at ease from the beginning. Excellent service needs recognition.
