It is evident you are very experienced and have kept your knowledge up to date.
I felt a sharp sense of loss on opening your letter this morning, you have been such a tower of strength at a very painful time, always there when needed, always crystal clear in your advice, and all this with a light touch which concealed the very serious work you do. You have saved us a great deal of money too and for that I am grateful. If I need legal help in the future you will be the first person I turn to.
Clive I just wanted to send you a thank you from the family and me for looking after me so beautifully over the years. I can’t think of a better solicitor for me.
We would like to thank you for the courteous, efficient and professional way in which you have dealt with our matters. I came to you originally as you had been highly recommended. I must say that I have not been disappointed. Rest assured that if I have anything else that needs attention I shall have no hesitation in contacting you again.
Many thanks for our discussion yesterday. It’s always good to meet up- as M said as we drove away – ‘I always feel we can trust Clive completely, he’s looking out for our best interests!’
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your invaluable assistance over the last 9 months. Your advice and understanding have helped me through a difficult time.
Many thanks once again for the kind thoughts and all the help you give to me.
Thank you very much for your email, and what you have organised for Ben’s birthday. On behalf of my Mum. I know it will mean tons to Ben. Thanks for everything that you are doing.
Clive, Many thanks again for your expertise and help with my affairs once again.
