    Having developed a wide range of professional contacts I am able to introduce my clients to other specialists who are a perfect fit for their particular needs.



    We had excellent service from Mr Sankey and his secretary who he brought with him to our house for us to sign the will.

    Mr & Mrs Fussell

    Ian Sankey's care and sensitivity has enabled an extremely difficult situation to progress as smoothly and painlessly as it could have been and I will be forever grateful to him. Easily the best experience I've had.

    Mrs Kerr

    Ian Sankey and Jennie Vaughan-Jackson went far beyond what I would have expected of them to assist us and deal with all the situations that arose. A pleasure to deal with.

    Mr Ash

    I have been totally delighted with all the services and help I have received. A very friendly, professional manner at a time of great stress. Thank you all involved.

    Mrs Stainer

    In helping us prepare our Wills and letters of wishes, Ian has been exemplary - efficient, helpful advice, good execution and remarkable value for money.

    I was treated with sympathy and an understanding of my needs. The fee was very reasonable and I feel well looked after.

    I was pleasantly surprised at how friendly and extremely helpful Ian Sankey was during my communications with him. I would be very happy and confident to recommend his services.


    Ian Sankey was extremely supportive from start to finish in the difficult task of executing our mother's Will. Ian was always there for us when we needed him to give advice and he showed the greatest tact and consideration when dealing with a delicate family situation. We are most grateful as a family for the excellent service we received.
