"Sallyann Short is one of the best solicitors I have ever worked with. She is so good at dealing with the complex needs of clients whilst maintaining a professional manner and caring nature. Clients don’t feel under pressure with her either."

"I have found Sallyann Short so helpful in all elements; her attitude to her clients is brilliant and her advice is always detailed but easy to digest."

I was very impressed with the service I received. Sallyann was exceedingly competent, professional yet very approachable and friendly. I followed her advice and guidance to the letter and was very pleased with the results. I will not hesitate to contact her in the future. With grateful thanks.

We trust Sallyann as our lawyer, she has always helped us by explaining everything so we can understand.

Sallyann provided outstanding service, responding quickly to all our questions and took time to explain it all as we went along the process.

I found Sallyann very knowledgeable and felt happy about her dealing with my affairs in the fullness of time.
