Alice is a committed, knowledgeable, hard working solicitor who I cannot recommend more highly. Alice displays professionalism at all times but with a real personal touch. She regularly goes the extra mile for our business, always contactable out side of standard hours even while on holiday, nothing is too much trouble.

The Property Guardian industry is quite unique in many ways, Alice took the time to really get to know and understand our business and regular challenges we face both commercially and operationally to ensure she gives us great legal advice.

I would have no problem in recommending Alice to anyone.

Simon Wright

Alice is a very knowledgeable lawyer who is always willing to help and make her self available. She is easily contactable and returns calls promptly. On the matters that we have already worked on together Alice has been proactive, prompt and efficient. Her advice is clear and is explained in a way it is well understood. I have no hesitation in recommending Alice to others.
