"Hollie Skipper was fantastic when preparing wills for my husband and me. At the time we were not married nor had children yet but that was in our plans, so she ensured that the Wills were future-proof and made everything so clear and easy for us both. We also recommended Hollie to my mother and father-in-law for wills and powers of attorney. They have passed her details on to more of the family. Essentially, the whole family now won’t go to anyone else. It’s so great finding someone who feels familiar and who you can trust for these important legal matters." R Woodward, Upminster
"I am delighted to provide a glowing testimonial for Hollie Skipper and her exceptional legal advice. Hollie's expertise, dedication, and commitment to her clients set her apart as a top-tier solicitor. I was fortunate to have Hollie prepare my Will in a complex matter, and from the moment we began working together, I knew I was in capable hands. She demonstrated a deep understanding of the legal intricacies surrounding my Will, and her ability to communicate these complex concepts in a clear and concise manner was truly impressive. Hollie's dedication was evident throughout the entire process. She was always accessible, responsive, and ready to address any concerns or questions I had. Her commitment to my well-being was evident and it's clear that she genuinely cares about her clients." K Russell, Loughton
"Hollie Skipper assisted me during a very difficult time and unfortunately my matter became quite contentious. I write to express my sincere appreciation for her highly professional and competent advice. She was very honest about my situation and explained all possible outcomes clearly. I felt a strong level of support at all times. I cannot thank her enough and would have no hesitation in using her services again, and in recommending her to others." S Moon, Theydon Bois
