I would highly recommend MGF. Marie guided us kindly and professionally from the first initial phone call to the final signing. She provided an un-pressured, user friendly service, that was very personal and efficient. We were very ignorant around the whole subject of wills and lasting powers of attorney, but Marie always made us feel that no question was a stupid one, and gave her time and attention to ensure we understood all that was involved. We have peace of mind now that we have everything in order, and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Marie.

I found this lady's business on an online search for a local will writer / solicitor for my Mother & I to write our wills after having not so positive experiences with previous companies we'd tried & Mum preferred to relate to a lady & I found that she was in our area & the only 1 who had 100% 5* Star ratings from all her customers who'd left reviews ! So we contacted her & went from there ! 🙂 We could not have found or wished for anyone better ! She offers such a personal service & is so easy to communicate with & is very knowledgeable & goes "the extra mile", nothing seems too much trouble & despite being a very busy woman, she gives as many extra hours of her time as her clients need & she does it all at a set fee ! She does not charge extra add on, additional charges for every hour, phonecall, Zoom call, visit, paperwork she does for you, she keeps to the very competitive price she quoted at the outset, which we found most unusual & refreshingly nice & welcome & very much appreciated indeed, no hidden charges or fear of nasty, frightening financial surprises ! She is such a very lovely person, personable, natural & relaxed to deal with, competent & efficient, keeps her word & punctual, doesn't let you down. We couldn't find better & she truly exceeded our expectations & we will use her again as she offers multiple legal services as listed on her website. Thank you Marie !

Marie drew up the wills for my partner and I. She was professional and accommodating throughout the entire process. Everything was explained clearly and there was no such thing as a silly question. She even took the time to walk us through the signing process with our neighbours! We would thoroughly recommend Marie and will be using her in future if and when we need to update our wills.
