We contacted Anna for a Will and she replied the same day. She was upfront with her fee which is very competitive and explained on her website. She also provided an excellent questionnaire that helped us think about how we wanted the Will structured and prepare for the initial meeting. Anna does a great job of explaining the legal process of the Will and I would recommend Anna for anyone or couple looking to set up their Will.
We are very satisfied with the input Anna gave to help create comprehensive Wills, Letters of Direction , and Enduring Powers of Attorney. Pricing was as advertised and all were completed in a friendly, timely fashion.

Very professional and knowledgeable. Prompt to respond to questions. Booking and paying is easy/straightforward. Importantly, Anna is very pleasant and friendly -- I do not know many lawyers who can make designing a will a pleasant experience, but she actually made it fun.
