"My wife and I recently engaged Michele Henderson of Cognitive Law to update our wills and set up LPAs. We have been really pleased with the work she has done for us on this. Michele came to us and all business was conducted in our own home. This was particularly helpful for my wife who is very averse to discussing matter of this nature. Michele's pleasant and helpful approach put us both at our ease and the follow up action required completed speedily and efficiently. The fee charged was reasonable and the schedule for payment carefully designed to avoid overstretching our finances. We feel we have received an excellent service and would have no hesitation in recommending Michele to others."
