Recent Feedback from a client:
‘Siobhan always had time to explain any details or plans of action, in layman’s terms, was not shy of giving her advice, and always willing to listen. Her visits to my home were a boost to my morale, and in someways responsible for my ‘get up and go’. Siobhan’s personality is both friendly and professional. Her advice is sound, and negotiation skills excellent (I even used her tactics whilst buying my new home). Also the claim was dealt with extremely quickly, and very professionally. So, well done Ashtons Legal for having Siobhan.’
