“My brother, when he died, left no will. However we had successfully used Petra (Lewis-Feast) of Rothera Sharp before when our mother died, so I decided to use her again. The process was not easy, made complicated further by various problems especially with his property, and various unexpected events along the way. Consequently it took two years to finally get everything sorted. This could have been a difficult time for me, especially living 150 miles away. However whatever arose, Petra was more than willing to step in and to address the issues, and to get them sorted. And despite being extremely professional it was all handled in a most friendly manner. Indeed, I have rarely met anyone who has been more willing and more helpful, and I can only be so very grateful. Thanks. ”Peter Roe
