“Although we had no face-to-face contact we built up a good relationship with Will Harper who we dealt with exclusively. He answered the phone personally and promptly and replied to emails usually the same day.”
“The practice has recently dealt with my late mother-in-law’s estate, probate, deed of variation and associated house sale. Despite covid, this went very smoothly with no issues and was carried out speedily.”
“Flint Bishop dealt with my late father’s estate and land registry transfer in a very professional manner. Over the last year despite the virus restrictions, all communication by post and email was clear, concise and very efficient. A very satisfactory service was delivered.”
“This is a very professional company. Came to use them for my mother’s will on her passing and had the pleasure of Amelia Carruthers dealing with everything. She made the experience a lot less stressful and was always there to help on any issues. In fact so impressed, they have done our wills and powers of attorney and again fully explained everything. Well worth paying that bit extra for a quality service.”
“I have used Flint Bishop’s services on several occasions for various issues. My contact there, Shirley Illston, over the last 24 years has helped me in difficult times, when I needed good legal advice quickly. I would recommend their services for any legal assistance you require without hesitation.”
“Excellent service, have recommended you to friends.”
“Very impressed with the response I received from start to finish.”
“My mum, brother and I consulted Flint Bishop last July after my father passed away. My parents Will was made with Flint Bishop so it seemed right that we would consult them when my father passed away. It was a scary time for me, as my mum relied heavily on me to deal with the aftermath of my fathers death, funeral, Will etc. but Flint Bishop totally took the worry and strain away. Wwe dealt with Samuel Balmbra and from the start of the consultation he was professional and honest. We knew exactly the cost involved and what was happening at every stage. He made something daunting for us seem very simple. I would recommend Flint Bishop and I will use them again if and when the time arises.”
“Very professional and efficient and went way beyond our expectations.”
“We found Will Harper to be very helpful in dealing with my aunt’s Will and the sale of her property especially under the current COVID restrictions. If we had any questions they were always answered promptly and all has gone through very quickly.”
“Will Harper provided advice to me in relation to my mother’s Grant of Probate which was very complexed. I feel extremely fortunate to have had Will to guide me through this process at an extremely difficult and distressing time of my life. Will’s response to my enquiries was immediate, he always displayed compassion to my personal situation and would explain things in a way I could understand. Having not gone through the procedure before I had lots of questions and Will always took the time to listen to my concerns and I never felt rushed. This isn’t always the service you get with solicitors, however, after every contact I had with Will I felt more reassured. I have already recommended Will to a close friend and will continue to recommend his exemplary service.”
“Flint Bishop routinely acts on tax planning for high-net-worth individuals, and it also covers wills, estate administration, probate, trusts, Court of Protection and elderly client matters. Led by Claire Rudkin, the practice is increasingly active in cross-border matters and represents business owners, entrepreneurs and farmers, among others.”
