Joanna Maloney was absolutely wonderful. Professional, discreet, sensitive and was just a guiding light in ensuring a speedy, yet practical outcome. All staff were courteous and nothing was ever an inconvenience to ask. Advice was timely and I always felt respected and heard. I had great confidence in Joanna and Best Wilson Buckley and would definitely recommend them.
