As first time buyers we really appreciated the support and advice that Carol gave us. We found GML Lawyers to be very professional without costing us the earth. I would highly recommend them for a house converyance.

Recently I had reason to search for a local lawyer to represent me in my new role as a widow.
Finding Carol Livingstone during this stressful time has been of huge comfort to me because Carol is a smart, attentive yet totally sympathetic professional.
Completing all the necessary procedures has been made easy for me by Carol, whose guidance is expert and compassionate.
