“Claire has been instrumental in assisting me in locating missing beneficiaries for various estates which I have administered over the years. Her skills have also been put to use in ascertaining whether clients for whom we have been holding Wills for a long time, are still alive or not. I have only ever found Claire to be professional and courteous when dealing with her and due to her knowledge she is able to suggest avenues of investigation which had not occurred to me.”

Breens Solicitors

“​After a request I made, Claire made herself available immediately. Claire was instructed to undertake some family research for a client of mine in a Court of Protection matter. the service Claire provided was top class, efficient and very reasonable on costs. I would have no hesitation with working/instructing Claire again."

Branchers LLP

“​I have worked with Claire when we had a beneficiary we could not locate. We had written to the last 2 known addresses and an email address. With no success at all!  After speaking to Claire and sending what we thought was limited information, Claire found our beneficiary in 1 day!!  Claire explained at the beginning what she would do, how long it would take and the costs.  She was extremely efficient and great to deal with. I would highly recommend Claire and will be instructing her again on any other matters that arise!.”
