Richard Ashton showed my Mother unfailing kindness in her dealings with him over the years and has been a patient and helpful support to me on-going

Richard has employed his considerable legal skills in navigating skillfully, courteously and brilliantly through the minefields that my cases have presented.

I would like to thank you for all the help you have given my brothers and I in sorting out my mum's estate. I have told many people how helpful you have been, and recommended you many times over.
