I have to say that you have been a beacon of professionalism and competence in a sea of poor service from many other parties. I will have no hesitation in using your services again and recommending you to others. Well done!

Your level of service was excellent.

You could not have done better. Your service was first class – thank you.

I will definitely be happy to recommend Andrews Martin – in fact I already have!

Patricia I have recommended you because you really care about your clients – you stand up for them against all challenges and really go the extra mile.

Laura was a star!

In Richard we have a quite outstanding deputy for my sister.

Emily, You cannot improve on perfection.

All staff are extremely friendly and helpful, especially Emily and Laura who could always be relied upon to deal with queries quickly. I will definitely use you again – you are reasonably priced and efficient.

We found you friendly, welcoming and we felt comfortable both in Reception and with the solicitor who went through the information clearly and we didn’t feel rushed.

Patricia, I cannot thank you enough for all the support, care, advice and hard work that you have given me in what has been a very emotional rollercoaster regarding my dad. Thanking you again.

Mrs Martin, I just want to thank you for all that you have done for my mother in such very difficult circumstances.

Just to thank you for dealing with my documents so professionally yesterday

Your service was outstanding – there was nothing that you could have done to improve!

Emily bent over backwards to solve problems when they occurred and kept me informed throughout.

I was extremely satisfied with the service that we received from Andrews Martin.
