I first contacted Helen Carville of Max Engel over 15 years ago, when I found out my previous firm of solicitors had disbanded and I was in urgent need of a very good, professional and thorough legal representative to complete a commercial property transaction, within an extremely tight deadline and was recommended to contact Helen by my accountants. After pulling out all the stops and achieving a superb result, I continued to contact Helen over other matters, both on a commercial and personal basis, and although I have not always liked the reality of the initial advice provided, I can honestly say that Helen has a very sensible, commercial and pragmatic approach and I would not hesitate to recommend Helen and Max Engel as an excellent firm of solicitors.
