Sonya Bassett

“It was refreshing that Sonya was happy to have a chat to get matters resolved rather than emails or letters going back and forward. Having worked with several solicitors over the years I can assure you, this proactive approach is not the norm!”

“I will certainly know where to come and will definitely not hesitate in recommending you to others”

“Advice was clear and offered when needed and presented in a way that was not overly complicated”
