Recent Client Feedback:

“Working with Chris Holten of Slee Blackwell Solicitors was an excellent experience for us from beginning to end. Although it was a very troubling time in our lives that led us to Chis Holten’s services, I can truly say that Chris made every step of the process easy and simple for us to follow and was always extremely sympathetic and understanding to our needs. He was always honourable, professional, knowledgeable and swift in dealing with all matters, and his advice was always honest and true throughout. He always explained things to us in an easy way to understand, especially as the legal processes can be extremely difficult to understand and follow at times. I am very grateful to have been helped by Chris every step of the way in that process, which led to the most favourable outcome for our case. We thank Chris for all his assistance in that result. I would highly recommend Chris Holten to anyone seeking a great, honest and knowledgeable solicitor.”
