    Finding the right solicitor is very difficult and so very important, so when I saw the words 'All about you', I was so pleased and with Porter Dodson, that's exactly what I got. They are by far the best solicitors I have ever used but a slogan on its own does not mean a lot unless you have the staff to back it up and with Claire Hannaford, I got a service that was second to none. What a lovely person - hardworking, able to take a joke but at the same time very professional.
