"Deed of retirement. From the onset I have found this firm to be very professional and straightforward to deal with. We have been kept completely up to date and our requirements were dealt with in a courteous efficient manner. We will definitely use mfg at St Paul’s again."

"I must thank you and mfg Solicitors for the efficient and friendly manner in which you have undertaken the preparation of this Will, in parallel with a similar task for the Estate in Ecuador, just as I was well advised some time ago by Paul Rhodes."

"mfg have handled 2 Probates and 2 property sales arising. Melanie Bateman on the Probate side and Phil Hunt on Property are very responsive and deal with matters arising quickly and efficiently.

"We dealt with Melanie Bateman at the Birmingham office. She took over the file from another solicitor who was struggling with workload... As soon as Melanie took over the file, things improved significantly. Communication was excellent and she moved things forward in an organised manner. She explained everything clearly and dealt with all our concerns. Probate was granted quickly and we are now back on our original timetable. Would highly recommend Melanie."
