“He provided clear, pragmatic advice to give me peace of mind that my family’s future is secure.”
“The expert advice together with a personal service was invaluable throughout the complex matter.”
"At a difficult period in our lives, Hilesh Chavda patiently, efficiently and effectively guided my sister and I through the complexities of sorting out our younger sister’s estate, including IHT and probate applications. It was important to both of us that we understood the processes involved; that we would receive timely responses; that there was transparency about the amount of work which needed to be completed, the likely timescales and the costs. We were completely satisfied on all counts that these important criteria were met and we will have no hesitation in commissioning Hilesh again whenever we have need of his knowledge, his thorough, empathetic approach and legal expertise."
