Thank you for the documents emailed and also for all your assistance during this process.
It has all gone as smoothly as I could have possibly expected and value highly your efforts. You can be assured that I will be a vocal supporter of Crilly Lawyers.
Very best regards
Thank you so much for helping us. It means so much for your to have done everything so quickly.
When I decided to purchase the property I had not hesitation in contacting you, my expectation of excellent services was there and you did not let me down. I know that there are those who would say “just do it yourself… save some money”, these people have obviously never had the pleasure of dealing with you.
To you this transaction was simple, even mundane, however someone like me who worries about everything it was a problem that needed to be solved. It is comforting to be able to know that you and your team are on the job protecting me from bad people that I am certain are out there waiting to make my life difficult.
I have known Mark Ellem for a lot of years now, while his advice has always been on the money (no pun intended) his recommendation of you is without doubt his greatest words!
To sum this all up … Thanks for doing a great job.Phil O'Driscoll
Kerry has performed a number of legal based things for me over the years and what has impressed me most about her is the flawless integrity and dedication she puts into whatever she does, she has never been shy going beyond expectation.Graham Baillie
