Mrs S E Watkins
It was with some trepidation that I came to make my Will and Lasting Power of Attorney at Thursfields, expecting to be confused with legal jargon. However this was not the case at all, I was treated with utmost courtesy and Michelle explained all of the details carefully and in very simple, straightforward terms, highly recommended.
Mrs J Green
My solicitor, Michelle, is extremely competent, highly intelligent but exceptionally friendly and very easy to deal with in all respects, it has been a pleasure to work with her in sorting out all of my legal affairs.
Mr A Kilminster
I have only ever received professional yet friendly, warm and understanding service from Michelle.
Mrs P S Setters
Michelle is an excellent communicator. She picks up immediately if her client is not fully understanding the implications of what is being discussed. Legal jargon is also explained carefully. Her approach to clients immediately puts them at ease and what I felt might be a daunting task became almost a pleasure thanks to her.
Ms M Baldry
I was anxious that the proceedings would be very formal and stuffy. It was quite the opposite. If I ever move away from this city and have legal matters that need a solicitor to deal with, I will travel back to use this practice and will ask for Michelle.
