"Ruth Swain looked after us following the death of my mother, handling a potentially tricky legal situation regarding first registration of a property, which was not helped by incompetent service from a previous solicitor. Her helpfulness and efficiency made the whole process hassle-free with the added bonus of things being sorted much more quickly than we anticipated. I can't thank her enough."
Viv Kirk
"This was a very difficult time for my family and I was tasked with leading on this - Ruth supported me throughout. She kept me informed of progress and spoke in plain English, explaining really clearly every step of the process. Excellent!"
Ruth Houghton
"Extremely satisfied with the standard of service provided by Actons and would not hesitate to use Actons for any future needs. I was most impressed by the very professional and friendly manner in which the delicate issues of our Wills and LPA's were processed by Ruth Swain. Because I have a mobility problem which made it difficult to attend your offices, Ruth conducted all our business very effectively in my own home."
Joseph Greatorex
"Ruth was an absolute star! I cannot praise her high enough. She was super efficient, kind and caring, felt so at ease with her. Gets the job done without any fuss!"
Janice Butterworth
Over the past 12 months, I have worked with Ruth Swain to settle my late father's estate and more recently to set up mine and  my husband's Wills. Ruth has been exceptional in her level of customer service, explaining everything in plain English so that we understood fully all of the legal angles of everything we were doing. She was really supportive during this sad time and a pleasure to work with making everything we did as simple as possible,  thank you.
