I would like to thank Jane Bennett for the expert help I received from her in a delicate matter surrounding Lasting Power of Attorney and the loss of capacity of a family member. Jane was able to draw on a wealth of specialist knowledge and experience both to guide me and, when needed, to act decisively. At each stage of the process, I have felt listened to, supported and treated with the upmost professionalism and warmth, not only by Jane but by all those I encountered at Jane Bennett Law.
