  • Our family chose Tallents Solicitors to represent them in their Will and specifically requested Sarah Allen to support the family through the Lasting Power of Attorney processes. Sarah was great, she was a complete rock and was always at the end of the phone no matter how trivial or serious the situation was throughout such a hard and vulnerable time of our lives. Highly recommend these solicitors, thanks for everything.

  • I would also like to thank you for getting these documents drawn up so quickly so that we could sign them before we all left town on Friday, that made the process go so much faster! I would also like to commend Mr. Whiting for making this such a simple process for us and for being so understanding and caring in his dealings with us all, especially our mother.
