What others say

“I would like to thank Gareth Williams who has been a huge support dealing with matters relating to the Trust set up under my late husband’s Will. Gareth gives time and expertise, and cuts through the legal jargon. He is a pleasure to deal with ” LF

“I have been a client of Gareth’s for a number of years. I have found him to be extremely knowledgeable in the area of Wills and Estate Planning but more important to me, is that he is approachable and genuinely wants to help people; he has been of great value to me over various matters. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to anyone who is looking for a relationship with their solicitor and not simply a transaction.” CL
