Rebecca Utton has been very understanding and accomodating. She has readily explained any terminology and processes when asked and has made herself available to answer any questions I might have as well as been transparent regarding the work undertaken and cost estimates. The legal process so far has been much less intimidating for me due to Rebecca’s friendly, yet professional demeanour and a willingness to make the legalities as painless as possible.
