“This matter involved dealing with a wayleave for a Utility company - something with which I have no experience. I received sound advice and felt confident in dealing with the company as a result. I always felt that Rupert Edwards, who handled my case, represented my interests in a most professional and supportive manner and I was completely satisfied with the outcome.”
