  • Your dedication throughout the time you were handling my case (including taking late night and weekend calls!) was outstanding.

  • From our first conversation it was obvious that Alun was the right man for the job. He has such an approachable manner and it made the whole legal process significantly less stressful knowing that he working on our behalf. He was efficient, responsive and most importantly trustworthy.

I was very pleased with the response from both Alun and Rhys. I needed advice regarding a will quite quickly and was initially responded to at the weekend by phone and then was able to make an appointment to see Alun a few days later.

Mrs R. Cardiff

You gave me peace of mind when having to deal with my affairs. You were very patient with me and took me through what was required when my husband passed away.

Mrs J. Cardiff

When my husband died I could not face dealing with the administration of the estate and the bereavement itself. I found Mr Thomas most caring and helpful. Thank you very much.
