RE: Jones Mitchell Testimonial
Having to sit down and talk with a Solicitor often means that an individual has some difficulty that needs sorting out. I was in this category – looking for a good Solicitor to assist me with the ending of a marriage.
On recommendation from Ms. Liya Ting (a friend and lawyer) I approached Jones Mitchell and I was introduced to Mrs. Day.
I was immediately impressed with the professionalism of Mrs Day. She immediately asked pertinent questions and offered good, strong advice. She took a professional interest in my case that her predecessor had not – indeed they had almost seemed disinterested just doing what they had to do!
Through no fault of Ms Day’s that was almost 2 years ago. In the intervening time she has shown incredible professionalism, flexibility and a courtesy way and above what I would have expected.
Her advice has been well thought out and based on experience and expertise. The level of support offered very high.
Conversations friendly and yet firm.
