Amrita Bartram


What My Clients Have Said

This lady was amazing! I found the lease sale very hard but Amrita was at my side 100% of the time. I will be using Girlings for all my future needs on the strength of this lady.  Mr & Mrs O'Donnell

Excellent service.

In all my years I have always had to chase solicitors for a number of reasons but just wanted to pass on my thanks and praise how efficient you are at your work, it did not go unnoticed and is greatly appreciated. Will Hobson
