Jo Cullen assisted me with a compromise agreement. The whole process was extremely efficient and any follow ups or questions that I had were dealt with immediately. I would have absolutely no hesitation in referring anyone to Jo Cullen or indeed Howell Jones Solicitors. I would certainly contact you in the future should I find myself in need of any legal assistance.

Jo provided a very speedy service from a quick appointment, helpful advice, prompt response with paperwork and a very quick result. Very impressed and I am grateful for the assistance provided.
