Great service for Wills and Residential Property: Luke Page acted for me in a Will transaction. The service was given in a timely manner. I was provided with sound advice and Luke was always available when I called. Deborah Trott also acted for me on a residential property matter. Deborah gave practical advice on various matters during the transaction. She always returned my calls and emails and had a friendly approach considering some of the difficulties of the transaction. I would highly recommend these two lawyers again. (Taken from Review Solicitors)

Client of Luke Page & Deborah Trott - DMA

We had a good idea of what we 'did not' want, but no clear idea of how to achieve what we did. Aaron, FP, was most helpful in discussing options and designing a solution that fitted well. He listened very well to our somewhat vague and rather contradictory thoughts, and in one go managed to meet these in a sound legal form. This has given us peace of mind that our Wills are 'done' and just what we want. Thank you for a very professional service.

Client of Aaron Spencer - Mr & Mrs R, Maidstone

Thoroughly professional service from our first telephone conversation to our final meeting. Abigail and Luke couldn’t have been more helpful. They were very friendly and very patient dealing with our numerous queries. We can rest in peace that everything is in order now.
