Recent Testimonials for Samuel Minnion

“Sam Minnion my solicitor was there every step of the way. Not having an insight into the legal system Sam explained every eventuality and always kept me updated. Besides discussion at his office he would telephone me before Court appearances and meetings so I would know what to expect whether he was at the meeting or not. I cannot praise him and his professionalism highly enough. I was impressed by the professionalism of staff, the ability to put myself and my husband at ease. They showed great understanding without being judgemental.”
