Mr & Mrs T

Excellent, friendly and efficient service. Would use again.

Mr G

Everything went smoothly and this is mainly due to the pleasant service, professionalism and helpfulness of Grace Kennedy who steered us through our LPA and wills update.

Mr and Mrs L

Grace was very professional and an asset to your company.

Mr P

Always good advice and easy to talk to.

Mrs A

So relieved to receive such good advice and feel like a weight has been lifted from my shoulders.

Ms S

We were delighted with all aspects of the service.

Mr L

We thank Grace, Marta Grzelak, Helen Green and Kasia for their help, support, commitment, and sometimes consolation – for empathy. We managed to overcome the language barrier and legal procedures. And everything was possible thanks to the wonderful Angels from the law firm.

Despite the fact that the administration has officially ended – you will all remain in our memories and hearts for a long time.

Ms H

First class service, advice and support from Michaela at Mchale & Co. Definitely recommend.



Mr N

A big thank you for Marta Grzelak.
Couldn’t have asked for more. I would not hesitate in recommending her to friends and family. A fantastic service all round.

Ms J

The legal advisor Zakkiya Azad was kind, patient and understanding at all times.
