A satisfied client
"Met Actons through Maggie's Centre in a November Wills month. Which made my mind up once I had the initial meeting - especially their professionalism."
Philip Treacy
I have been a client of Actons since 1997; conveyancing on 2 occasions and Wills and Powers of Attorney, all of which went very smoothly. The people I have met since that time have always been well-mannered, kind and courteous and very knowledgeable. I would not hesitate to use Actons again should occasion arise.
Mr Simpson
"We found Cara very informative and helpful and certainly knew her job. We would recommend Actons every time"
Keith S.
I was very happy with the advice and support Cara Watson gave me when my wife passed away last year. She dealt with my wife's estate and also kept me informed every step of the way during such a difficult time. Thank you Cara for all your help and support.
