“Work was impeccable …”

Where do I start? I used Parslows for all of the legalities for my new business. I often had meetings, phone calls and emails with Catia Barros & Carl Parslow. The advice, patience, and kindness I received from them and everyone at Parslows was fantastic. The work they did for me was impeccable, and they talked me through everything in stages. When I was unsure, they simplified it and made me feel like I had complete control of what was happening to better my business and its legal aspects.

I thank you all sincerely for the compassion and empathy you had for me while receiving your services. I will be sure to be back again should I request your expertise.
I highly recommend Parslows to anyone. Thank you again, Michael Kirkwood and the staff from Lifeline Training Ltd.
