Dawn Oliver (ranked at Band 1) is “the leading private client lawyer in Worcestershire,” says a source, who adds: “She has a strong reputation, she has deep technical expertise and is up to date with the market.” Another source describes Oliver as “very thorough and professional, with a good depth of knowledge,” commenting: “She doesn’t have to look things up; unless it’s really unusual she always knows her way around very effectively. I can’t fault her. She is a popular choice with clients, and is easy to get on with. She always takes a constructive approach and is both thoughtful and considerate. When it comes to complex needs, Dawn really knows what she’s doing, she says it like it is. You get an objective view, which is very important, but at the same time she has empathy with her clients.”

Thank you for your letter of September 30th but more importantly thank you very much for your support and advice over the last months and your kind gesture over fees. 

To be perfectly honest I do not know how we would have managed this journey without you.

Just a note of appreciation from me for all the work you have done on my behalf for Mother’s Estate.  We have both greatly appreciated all your help with both my parents’ Estate’s and you have always made our meetings positive despite the tricky parts when Father passed away leaving us with various problems to untangle!

Where do I begin , other than with heartfelt gratitude to you and your office for the support , advice and sensitivity which you have all shown me during the last five years. With the clarity of hindsight I was hugely affected by M’s untimely and sudden death and your calm and gentle lead made sorting his property and last wishes all the more straightforward.
