“Lee Hibell and his team were conscientious and patient throughout the proceedings and were always available to answer my questions. I would recommend the firm to anyone requiring legal assistance in cases where someone has died without leaving a will and the distribution of the estate moneys to the researched beneficiaries needs to be carried out.” Tony T
“Myself and my parents had the unenviable task of settling my late brothers estate without a will. Lee Hibell and team took over the task. Excellent communication, excellent level of service. Lee is very personable and professional. My parents were happy with both the length of time it took to complete what was a difficult task, and happy with the reasonable cost of the service. It took a lot of stress away from them at a very upsetting time. For that they will always be grateful Lee. Thank you.” Mrs Young

I would like to thank you for the way in which you dealt with this matter all the way through. Particularly I would express my thanks for your prompt replies to all enquiries that I raised and for keeping me so well informed of the progress of the case.
Natasha Kelt, Litigation
I must say her handling of the transaction was first rate and very professional. Always available and she was never afraid to pick up the phone and share information when it was better to communicate that way rather than just email, a blessing in this day and age. Though both parties were keen for a quick exchange she never allowed that pressure to mean she cut any corners with her enquiries and was always working in my best interests.
I will be more than happy to work with her again in the future and will certainly recommend her to friends and associates who require similar services.
