OUR RECENT CLIENTS HAVE SAID THE FOLLOWING ABOUT BRENDA:

"Thank you for your friendly, understanding and knowledgeable service helping us to make our wills recently. We know we didn't make it easy for you, but much appreciate the time and effort you put into ensuring both wills were suitable for our circumstances."

“When someone dies, it’s a difficult time. Brenda Smyth was very understanding and helpful to us in every way, always ready to answer any questions we needed or explain things to us.”

“The service provided was excellent from start to finish. The efforts of Brenda Smyth made what was a difficult time straightforward and easy. Thank you.”

“During a traumatic period of my life, the service I have received from Brenda Smyth has been superb which has indeed helped myself and my family to cope with such a difficult period.”

"My father died at the end of November last year after a long illness. If you have not lost a loved one you will perhaps not realise just how much you have to organise and do, especially at a time when you are not feeling great at all. One of the things that may need organising is probate on your loved one’s estate.

This job fell to my mother to organise, and for a lady hose husband did everything for her during their long marriage, that was a very hard thing to do. However, I was kindly passed the details of Brenda Smyth and we booked in to see her. We were dealt with at all times in a professional, accurate and extremely compassionate manner. The attention to detail was phenomenal and my mum was kept up to date at every stage and probate was granted swiftly and without any issues.

I would highly recommend AMD as solicitors. Of course, I do hope you don’t need them under the circumstances that we did, but if you do, they will really look after you. We will be using AMD for our family and business legal matters going forward as well."
