Customer Testimonials

My father and I recently used the services of Nelsons Leicester branch to manage a bereavement. From the offset we were most impressed with the way everything was dealt with. Thanks to both Nadia and Judith(who provided the welcome coffee) for providing a professional service.


I used Nelsons when I needed to apply to the Court of Protection to manage my aunt's financial affairs. This is not a quick process, but Nadia kept in touch with me throughout, so that I knew what progress was being made. Everyone I met at Nelsons was pleasant, helpful and efficient and I have no hesitation in recommending them.


I have used Nelsons for advice on preparing and updating my Will, executing my Father's Will and my Mother's Power of Attorney. In all cases I was given highly professional service delivered very sensitively. I always felt able to ask questions and time was taken to explain an re-clarify where necessary. I feel very comfortable dealing with this Firm.


Used Nelsons for reviewing and updating our wills and power of attorney and we received a first class service


The service provided included handling a relative's finances(their enduring power of attorney), and the subsequent management of probate and the estate. My relative's wellbeing and financial peace of mind were at the forefront at every instance. Jane Sutherland and her team handled all aspects including the estate (which was long and complicated by european inheritance legalities), in a highly professional and efficient manner.
We could not recommend the whole service highly enough.


A Superb and very thorough Solicitors, a pleasure to deal with.
