Mr Kavanagh was a delight to deal with. We appreciated his frank, no-nonsense, concise advice. He was able to clearly explain to us our legal position in an understandable way free of legal jargon and the advise he gave sat well with us. We bought an hour of his time and consider it money well spent.
