“Tiffany is very calm, clear and concise. She has the ability to take the client’s emotion out of the case which is rare. She is very timely and never inflammatory – something that the client can sometimes be guilty of. She is highly skilled in shaping correspondence which quietly lands punches without being offensive. I would recommend her to anyone."
"Tiffany and her team were excellent and provided sound advice and great support to me through a difficult and emotional time and brought about a successful conclusion to the issue, keeping me informed of the progress, highlighting the options and potential costs. I would have no hesitation to recommend Hewitsons as a very professional practice and Tiffany Benson as a specialist probate solicitor."
"Tiffany provided me with excellent advice and undertook my case with efficiency and in a timely manner. Thank you."
