"Any future problems, I won't hesitate to call you
"I feel sure I will be in touch again, but in any event I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your help over the past few years and in particular for your constant quick responses to questions and emails-I have never come across a solicitor who is so prompt, even when I was at the Bar! Great service, thank you."
Mrs P Tshuku
“I am writing to thank you and your team for the work you have recently done with regards to my mum’s Will, LPA and the Grant of Probate. Thanks for making the process as straight forward as possible and for keeping both of us informed every step of the way.
I am glad that my mum has found a solicitor that is local to her and we would not hesitate to recommend you to other people.”
“I want to thank you personally for your help and assistance in making a difficult process run as smoothly as possible”
“I would like to thank Kalpa for her services with regard to handling the distribution of my uncle's estate. It has been a pleasure dealing with her, and will keep Grant Saw in mind should I require legal assistance in the future.”
"I am very grateful to you for the efficient way in which you have completed this matter.”
Mrs Moira Joyce Reed
“We would both like to thankyou, for your professional advice on making our Wills. We will, when needing advice in the future, come back to Grant Saw.”
Thankyou, best regards
"Treated me fairly from end to end, very polite, fee estimate did not go above quote."
Mr M Kania
"Couldn't have done it without you...you made it so simple to understand and having your support just made life so much easier, thank you"
“Kalpa has been wonderful in all my dealings with her”
“After the very sudden loss of my husband, Kalpa was very friendly and approachable, kind and understanding. She was polite and courteous and made life a little better and she always explained everything in a relaxed manner”.
“Recently, we had a deal where the seller sadly passed away during the transaction and Kalpa dealt obtaining probate for the seller’s family extremely quickly and efficiently. This meant that the sale was able to proceed smoothly and prevented the chain from breaking down. I would not hesitate in recommending Kalpa to my clients, friends or family.”
Tamer Alcici, Partner, Conran Estates, Greenwich.
“When our elderly father died, my brother and I were in the process of completing on the sale of his property. Obviously this came to a halt while we applied for Grant of Probate. We approached Kalpa at Grant Saw since the firm had prepared and held my father’s Will. Having spent the previous year extending the lease on our father’s property and putting it on the market, we had become rather disillusioned with the legal profession. Dealing with Kalpa, our faith has been restored. She has acted promptly and efficiently on our behalf and we are hopeful that the sale of the property will now go ahead in good time to keep the original chain of buyers. Kalpa has responded quickly, patiently and clearly to messages and always acknowledged receipt, which was very welcome, following our previous experiences. Thank you, Kalpa, for making what was, potentially, a stressful situation, so much easier for us.”
Jan and Vince
“Thank you for all the work and help you have dedicated with the dealings of my father's estate. If I ever need a solicitor again in the U.K. I would choose you and your Company. You have done an excellent job! All the best for your future. Kind regards and a Big Hug.”
Alan C. Newton
"Thanks for all your efforts on my behalf these past few months not the easiest of times and you were a great help"
Mr D Hodgson
"I want to say thank you for your help in this difficult time for me and also thank you for your immediate response to W…..’s wish to make his Will. You and your team have done a really professional job and I really appreciate that you kept me updated. I don’t know what I would have done in this situation without your help. I am really glad that this is all finished and we are a step further to getting a little peace back, although it is still like he died yesterday... I will recommend Grant Saw Solicitors to everybody who needed help in any circumstance where a solicitor is needed!"
Ms U Werner
"Thank you very much for sending the Deputyship Orders. We are very much indebted to you for your hard work on our behalf….. Once again, many thanks”.
Mrs & Mrs Shakespeare
“May l take this opportunity to thank you for all your hard work in this matter, which has eventually led to a satisfactory conclusion. Your advice, guidance and correspondence was excellent.
I will have no hesitation in recommending you and your firm to anyone who needs any help or assistance in legal matters in the future.”
Mr J. Humphreys
"Just to say again A BIG THANK YOU for dealing with a difficult situation efficiently, with ease and compassion.
I would not hesitate to recommend you to other people."
Mrs M Garland
"A few weeks back I felt I had a mountain to climb to get sorted but thanks to you it all seemed very easy."
Ms A Brooks
"My sincere thanks to everyone I have dealt with at Grant Saw, who have all exercised polite and efficient professionalism. And to you personally, Kalpa, for your dedication, hard work, sensitivity (given the reason my mother and I approached you for legal assistance), and your conscientiousness. You have also been consistently clear and prompt in your response to my queries, and this has been very much appreciated."
"I recently needed solicitors to undertake the administration of a will, grant of probate, and the transference of a property into my name. These were all tasks I found daunting and did not properly understand even though I had attempted to read up on them. I approached five firms of solicitors for comparison, including two I had used many years ago, and requested estimated costs from each. At the same time I researched them on the Internet. Even before I had finally made a decision there was a clear front runner - namely, Grant Saw Solicitors in Norman Road, Greenwich. The information on their website was clearer and more extensive than the others, and although the public ought always to approach self-descriptions with due critical reservation, there was a feeling of transparency and honesty about Grant Saw that was ahead of the others. Most impressive was the cost. However, it would be entirely false to think that they were offering a compromised service. On the contrary, I cannot imagine how the service I received could have been bettered - it was truly excellent. The entire process was simple, speedy and client-friendly. Ms Kalpa Prajapati undertook the work for me in a very friendly and efficient way and I felt truly relieved to be able to hand over to her the responsibility for undertaking the legal and formal work. By the time it was finished I was truly surprised by how easy the whole process had been for me. On the basis of my experience I cannot recommend Grant Saw highly enough and shall certainly use them again and will recommend them to people I know. I am a very happy client and genuinely grateful to Grant Saw, and especially to Ms Kalpa Prajapati, for undertaking the legal work
I wish to express to you personally my sincere gratitude for the help you have given me, especially at this difficult time in my life. I cannot imagine that the various legal and formal matters that you have undertaken on my behalf (and which, I must confess, I still do not fully understand) could have been dealt with more efficiently or in a more client-friendly way. I am truly grateful to you. I have been so pleased with the service that both you and Grant Saw Solicitors have provided that I shall certainly be recommending Grant Saw to people I know."
