I have worked closely with Seema for a number of years, in my capacity of executor to the estate of two close friends. Throughout this period of time, which involved interviews with them both at their nursing home, Seema showed compassion and professionalism in dealing with two elderly people. The husband of the couple passed away first in the care home, Seema continued to work to make a smooth transition of funds so that his wife received financial security at the same home. On her death there was a large amount of work to ensure that the beneficiaries, including charities were dealt with fairly, all of which she discharged with great skill. I would like to thank Seema and her team for their professionalism and understanding throughout this difficult time.
I found your service very helpful and friendly and I would definitely recommend you to friends and family. Seema Solanki was extremely professional as she made me aware of and pointed out matters regarding our Will and Power of Attorney.
Barr Ellison Solicitors have been excellent in every respect.
Andrew and Angela Scott

Thank you so much for making the will process so simple. I particularly found your instructional video very helpful and easy to understand. Thank you also for the professional, kind and considerate way you have conducted yourself during this very stressful time in my life.
Excellent communication and helpful advice - easy to contact and if in a meeting would always phone back promptly - we were completely satisfied.

Barr Ellison provided a great service when we needed help with our Will. They were really helpful in explaining the issues, and took the pain out of creating what we needed.

Many thanks for all you have done Seema. If I or any member of my family or friends need a solicitor in England, we now know who to go to.
I was particularly pleased and impressed by the kind and caring manner in which I was dealt with by the team.

Mr Ian McMillan
My experience has been one of a very professional, yet extremely friendly service. I am very grateful.
Barr Ellison seems part of our family. My husband Richard had told me that Barr Ellison would take care of me and my son, and he was right. You guided me through everything with regard to my husband's estate, always making clear the choices open to us. Seema Solanki and Helen Murphy were so kind, approachable and trustworthy, they feel like sisters to me.
Seema was a true professional in all aspects of her work and was sensitive at all times due to the nature of the case.
