Feedback on Sara’s work:
‘I recently instructed Sara Pritt and felt I had to drop you a line to express my thanks to her through yourself Graeme Swain, managing partner. I have wasted my time so often with mediocre solicitors who I have found on so many levels inadequate. Sara is different. She has a real talent. Not only has she clearly grasped what needed to be done she has got on and done the job. I have not found the need to chase her or remind her. She has been decisive and committed and very patient with a client who i know can be difficult.’
‘Dear Sara, Just to say a big thank you for all you did for me. thank you again.’
