Pardeep Kandola is simply outstanding. His prompt responses, attention to detail and solid common sense advice kept us sane throughout the conveyancing procedure. I recommend him most highly.

I used Askews for my legal support during my house sale. As someone who isn't quite up to speed on these matters, I found Paul and Natalija absolutely brilliant in terms of handling all my questions and concerns in a very swift matter. The answers to all my questions were handled very quickly and in great detail, giving me a stress free experience and a lot of confidence that all matters were handled with fantastic professionalism.

We would highly recommend Askews, and thank you again Parvinder!
