  • I wish to thank you, Jill & Mark along with everyone else at Ridley & Hall who has dealt with  my Mothers case over the past months. As you can imagine the past two years have been a very emotional and stressful  period for my family  as my Mother first became ill and finally passed away. The professionalism and rapidity   we have received from yourselves has been a great help in these hard times. Personally it has left me with a very positive view of Ridley & Hall and you  will certainly be my first choice when I next require legal representation – but I’m sure you’ll forgive me  for saying I hope that time will not be too soon 😉 Again thank you all your help.

  • We found the service you offered excellent.  It was extremely friendly, clear and concise, and the communication was informative and speedy with a minimum of fuss.  Sympathetic in the circumstances too.  P.S. Girls on reception – totally lovely, very personable and helpful.

  • To all who were dealing with my mother’s estate, I just want to thank you for all the support you have given me throughout from my mother making this Will with you. It has been a very difficult situation to have been in all these years, trying to get people to listen to me but I got there in the end and you were the people who actually listened.

  • An excellent service provided for [mother’s] Will by Jill Waddington and Ann Silver. I would have no hesitation in recommending [Ridley & Hall] and intend to use it for myself and my partner if we require any legal services in future. Thank you.

  • Thank you all for your efficient services in winding up the estate of our very missed Mum and previously, the work you carried out for Mum and Dad. We would always employ Ridley & Hall if we need any legal services in future and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you to any of our friends or familly. We will be calling into the office thank you and Anne personally. We hope you have a wonderful Christmas and wish you and your families and colleagues a very happy New Year.

  • All work carried out to our complete satisfaction. Thank you.

  • Jill was very kind and friendly making me feel at ease!

  • I would like to thank the both of you for your help with this matter. I did not realise what being an executor entailed. I know that things like this are an every day part of your jobs, and probably other wills are more complex. Again, though, thank you very much.

  • Jill dealt with us and helped a lot by explaining clearly.  She was very kind to two old people!

  • A first class service, professionally executed in an efficient and timely manner.  A perfect service – so improvements not applicable.

  • The initial appointment was excellent. We were very impressed at being able to have a home visit. Jill was clear, patient and understanding at this sensitive time.

  • As always, very happy with the service from Ridley & Hall. Jill is very professional and efficient in dealing with our wills. We have recommended her to our parents.

  • I just wanted to thank you for all the work you have done recently on behalf of me and my late mother. You activated the power of attorney my late mother had set up some years ago, you organised with a colleague the sale of her home and, latterly, you sorted out the probate on her estate. I’m hoping that I won’t have the need of your services again, in the near future anyway, but I do appreciate your expertise and the very friendly and personal way in which you have handled these matters.
