    " My wife and I recently relocated from our home of 33 years in Desford to an apartment in a McCarthy and Stone complex in our nearby town of Hinckley. The solicitor appointed to do the legal details etc. was Christine Gildon of HCB. Our experience of legal people in general is that they have a tendency to talk well above the ordinary person when dealing with the complex work. It was therefore an absolute pleasure when I spoke to Mrs. Gildon on the telephone to hear a person who appeared to talk to me in a very professional but understanding way. Further conversations only served to strengthen this opinion and then all the necessary paperwork was completed on time and to a schedule which was established at the beginning of the process. Her skill and tenacity in overcoming any issues was admirable and at no time did we feel inferior. When you do not have any legal knowledge it can be intimidating when dealing with legal experts especially if they treat you with a supercilious attitude. We suffered none of this arrogance at all.

    It is therefore a pleasure for my wife and I to commend the excellent ability and efficiency of Mrs. Gildon in her work. When we eventually met her at the residential complex we were not to be disappointed as the same courteous manner and efficient ability were on display for us to witness face to face. She is exceptional in her job and you should be very proud to have her as an employee of your practice.

    She has certainly changed our perception of a solicitor, for the better.

    Thank you for allowing her to deal with our house move."
