Poppy was so professional, patient and kind with Gabrielle .She showed true empathy to Gabrielle  and the situation , we would very much like to reflect this formally and offer our sincere thanks to Poppy.
Poppy was very professional and totally realistic to advise us of the expected time frame to complete our LPA. Our Wills were prepared, reviewed and complete within a simple timeframe. I would recommend Poppy to any friends or family.
