After the sudden death of my father on a Caribbean cruise ship, I was referred to Meade King by a colleague.  Sam Piper was exceptional. She managed the process brilliantly and handled numerous complications exceptionally.  I can’t recommend Sam or Meade King highly enough.

We would like to express our sincere gratitude for the very efficient and sensitive way Lily dealt with mum's estate.
Communication was essential and emails were always answered exceptionally speedily and informatively ensuring we were made aware of the next steps within the process.

We would highly recommend Meade King after the excellent service they provided to my disabled father in his nineties.
Always helpful and considerate, they looked after his finances while he was alive. They also worked on our behalf to deal with his estate. This was done efficiently and we were constantly kept informed of progress.

Sam was excellent from start to finish handling my father’s will….Her level of professionalism and dedicated approach was first rate and allowed us to overcome many hurdles. I would recommend Sam without question.

It was really good to meet with Vanessa in the Private Client team at Meade King. I needed some specific probate, tax and trusts advice and felt very comfortable and confident with Vanessa's assistance. Professional, knowledgable, kind and efficient: just what was required at a difficult time. I would thoroughly recommend the team.
