What clients say about Elizabeth:

‘Just what I wanted. Clarity and efficient communication by competent solicitor. I liked the relaxed and down to earth approach offered by Newtons as I hate the “stuffy” experiences of the past, elsewhere’.

‘Very professional, friendly and helpful’.

Elizabeth answers the question ‘Can you give things away to avoid inheritance tax?’
