The service was all the more impressive because the period concerned was that of the covid crisis; when the function of other agencies with whom Girlings had to deal was so severely compromised.
I was very nervous when I first approached your company with my son. Louise immediately put us at ease. She was extremely helpful and kind as well as being thoroughly professional.
Mrs J Adams
No improvement needed. Thank you for your excellent service.
Mr & Mrs Huggett
A very good service, both staff very polite and understanding with my condition.
We were completely satisfied by the way our business was dealt with. It was totally professional but also very caring. A totally satisfying experience.
A very 'human' service.
Mrs Mason
Louise guided us through the process with a professional and accessible approach.
Mrs Baxter
Mrs Wilson was always helpful and advice was freely given. A difficult time was dealt with considerately for the family.
Excellent service that left no room for improvement.
Mr & Mrs Chubb
Grateful for care, help and advice I was given by Louise Wilson.
You are unable to improve. Already above all expectations.
Mr Angell
As we have poor health and are shielding we very much appreciated (in this time of Covid) a home visit to discuss our Wills, a video meeting to confirm details and the signing process at home.
Mrs Kasap
Louise has a very reassuring approach which helped when dealing with my late husband’s estate.
I have had the pleasure of dealing with Louise on two separate matters recently, one being a property transaction and the other to update my Will. Louise pointed out some fundamental risks in the way that both of these were set up. After consultation my Will was re drafted to cater and correct the situation. I have found Louise to be both professional and knowledgeable. She also has a way of explaining things in a way that is easily understood. I would have no hesitation in recommending Girlings and in particular Louise.
Melany Bydawell

Your service has been exceptional on the personal level.
