Darren Edwards provided an excellent legal service when acting for me with respect to the purchase of my first flat; the service was friendly and Darren was very responsive and explained everything clearly to me. I am very happy with the service I received and would recommend Darren and Bennett Griffin to my friends and family.
I would like to thank you & your team. It has been an exceptional service of the highest quality, personal, friendly and professional at all times. Always accessible, great communication and more importantly straight forward explanations every step of the way. I can not recommend your services high enough.
Darren has been excellent in helping us with the purchase of our new family home. He was always highly professional and proactive in his approach to working with us, providing regular and detailed updates allowing us to make informed decisions regarding the purchase. I have been so impressed in Darren and the wider team at Bennett Griffin that I have recommended him numerous times to friends and family who are now also happy Bennett Griffin clients.
…wishes to express his thanks and mine for all your hard work in arranging the loan arrangements with the lender. It was a long and frustrating process, which would have been a lot longer and more tiresome if not for your doggedness in seeing it through. Once again, heartfelt thanks from both of us…
