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.
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.
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.
Thank you Sarah Payne and Seema Solanki. I was really impressed and never regretted making my initial contact. I would not hesitate to use Barr Ellison again. Thank you so much.
Seema Solanki provided an excellent service and was always punctual for meetings at your Addenbrooke's office.
Mr Ian McMillan
Seema was a true professional in all aspects of her work and was sensitive at all times due to the nature of the case.
Everyone at Barr Ellison has always been friendly, efficient and professional but I particularly want to thank Seema Solanki for her recent help and support with my late husband's estate. Despite the limitation imposed by lockdown she always replied promptly to my emails and phone calls which really helped to make a difficult time much more bearable and I will certainly be recommending her.
Thank you for all your help & kindness in arranging our Powers of Attorney for Health & Welfare. Despite having to cope with Coronavirus restrictions you made the whole process quite straightforward for us.
