Hi 5 mate!

Hi Matthew,

Hi 5 mate! Thanks for that. I guess everything is now complete!!?

As for the $11.30 – I was going to say you could by me a beer. But since I’m on the other side of the country that might be a bit difficult, so I’ll buy myself one! … thanks for your help, efficiency and professionalism!  Anything else, I’ll definitely be in touch.

a good experience and money well spent

Matthew Gunn provided me with very efficient support in the application for the Grant of Probate on behalf of my late father. A subsequent minor query from the Court was handled effectively and with little fuss, resulting in a speedily turnaround of the Grant. All-in-all a good experience and money well spent. Thank you Matthew.

considered, polite, and thoughtful approach

That we had experienced a professional and considered interview when discussing the options at a meeting we attended to apply for Probate for our late mothers estate – that the process was explained in a way we felt comfortable with, and questions we asked were answered simply and in a manner we could understand without legal jargon clouding the issues. We were made to feel at ease throughout, and our consideration appeared foremost in the mind of Rachael Coffey who was taking us through the requirements of the process, and when we had concluded our deliberations we were offered refreshments whilst we waited for the finished documents to be drawn up after-which the company solicitor attended to sign after witnessing our signatures and again a considered, polite, and thoughtful approach was made where we were given certified copies of various documents for our benefit. Once the finished Probate application was completed, we left knowing that the whole process had been undertaken in an un-hurried manner, to our complete satisfaction, and that the Probate documentation would be sent off as required, and that we would be notified when in due course when it was issued.

Mr S
