“I like Nigel. He’s a nice guy. I ask lots of questions, always have, and I like it that Nigel answers them all. His emails are very funny and they really help explain things. I’ve never said I like a solicitor before. In fact, thinking about it I like you all at DR Solicitors and I never thought I’d say that about a firm of solicitors!”Dr M | GP Practice in Herts
