What do my clients say?

Ms Monadjem prepared my last Will and Testament. I needed someone I could trust and as I had previously used her services before to prepare legal agreements, I asked her to assist. I have ties in multiple countries in Europe and Africa. Ms Monadjem efficiently untangled the issues, and provided me with simplified (non-legal jargon) and logical explanations of the legalities of inheritance and inheritance tax of each country. She determined my domicile and prepared the necessary wills. She guided me through the options I had to ensure I leave my family in a secure situation after my death. I would recommend Ms Monadjem to anyone who needs to prepare or update their Will.
