Sarah Finnis was excellent. A true support over a very difficult situation. She listened and understood perfectly. Her advice was really helpful and exactly what I needed to learn about my situation. She is a great asset to Girlings in this particularly sensitive area of family support.

You managed to get everything sorted exceptionally quickly and I wouldn’t hesitate to use you again. Ms J Rice

I just wanted to say thank you for your help over the past 7 or 8 years in dealing with our parents’ affairs. I think your calm, professional, matter-of-fact explanations helped them get comfortable with the idea of signing POAs. I dread to think how we would have coped without the POAs in place.
