Quotes from clients include:
"We had the good fortune to be assisted by Joanne Hadley in a complicated eviction case. She stayed on top of the many twists and turns and managed to explain it in ways so that we could fully understand what was going on. Joanne's work was prompt and thorough and she was warm and approachable whilst remaining at all times professional."
Isabel Lovelock, Fox Housing Co-operative Limited
"I contacted Joanne when I realised the severity of the mistake we had made in not realising the leasehold payments we owed on a flat we rent out. I was very concerned to discover a Court Order had been made for possession of the flat. Joanne's calm and professional manner took away much of my anxiety. She dealt with the case quickly and effectively, fitting around holiday plans we had previously made, which turned out to include crucial dates in the case. I would have no hesitation in recommending Joanne to others who might find themselves in a similar situation."
