In a time of anxiety and uncertainty for me, Lexpert Solicitors LLP were a God send. When I first called and spoke with Kennedy, I was immediately put at ease. He was very professional but also friendly and listened to my legal dilemma in a calm and caring manor. Although obviously knowledgeable in his field and highly intelligent, he explained and conveyed to me legal terms and the legal process in layman’s terms.

I wouldn’t hesitate in highly recommending Kennedy and Lexpert Solicitors LLP.
