How clients rate our Property Purchase Service...

Advocate Abroad seeks client feedback to ensure continued high-quality service provision.
I'm a native English speaker and I needed an English speaking Hungarian lawyer. I needed help with my recently deceased father's probate, and subsequent property sale (conveyancing). Advocate Abroad put me in touch with Peter H. Peter H dove into the deep end and identified all the mandatory forms, drafted all the required agreements, and persistently engaged the Budapest authorities when they drifted off track - and there was a lot of that going on. From the perspective of notification, Peter H provided updates either frequently when that was needed, or occasionally when that was appropriate. From a fees and value-for-money perspective Peter H delivered right on target.
