“I would like to commend Peter for helping me out during one of the most stressful things I have ever done. Selling and buying a house in less than 3 weeks seemed like a good idea at the time however I did not appreciate the time and energy that it would require. I was therefore eternally grateful that I had instructed Peter as my solicitor. Peter was available at all times to explain the process, to keep me calm and put my mind at ease. The fees for the work he carried out on our behalf were excellent and he cannot be faulted in his professional service.
