I have not had the best experiences with solicitors. I must say though that I’m impressed with the service that Caitlin Meers and Allistar Twigg have provided. In this defamation case, you’ve been knowledgeable, prompt, and efficient; and I’d be happy to recommend your firm.

Thanks so much, Gerald Santucci and Caitlin Meers, for all your valuable assistance with the sale of our business. We found the whole process quite stressful – but it was made much easier and more manageable because we had our trusty SHG lawyers supporting us.

Christmas this year will be much more relaxed and happy than it was last year – I can tell you!

Dear Gene and Caitlin,

I wanted to thank you for your efforts on this issue.

I found your timely response to all issues raised and your professionalism in both your assessment of the case and decisions on tactics going forward to be of the highest standard.

As you know this was our first time dealing with your firm, it has been a pleasure in all aspects from the first interactions to the final conversations to put the matter to rest.

Dear Richard, Many thanks to you (and Caitlin) for guiding this to what I regard as a very satisfactory conclusion. I certainly could not have done it without you. Thanks, too, for your understanding over the last few days. None of this will be forgotten.
