    Myself and my partner individually bought and sold a house using Hopkins Solicitors. Our solicitor on both occasions was Sarah Ogilvy. Throughout both processes she was extremely efficient, calm and professional. She always seemed to be one step ahead which, when buying (and selling) is so important to provide reassurances and alleviate any unnecessary anxiety or stress. Over the phone and in person she was also very personable. We wouldn’t hesitate in using Hopkins again in the future and would thoroughly recommend Sarah. Thank you for everything.
