Recent Client Feedback:

I unfortunately had reason to contact Slee Blackwell following the death of my husband as I needed advice regarding contesting a Will. My case was referred to Chris Holten. He was very understanding of my situation and it was clear from the start that he was fully knowledgeable in this area of the law. My claim was successful thanks to his excellent work. I would have no hesitation in recommending him.


Extremely professional and at the same time caring and kind with my complex case. Always explained things well and worked very hard to ensure I had the best case possible. I would always use Chris Holten as I trust him to act wholeheartedly in my best interests.


It was a long haul but you were with us every step of the way. Your sound advice was very much appreciated, as was the fact that you kept us in touch at all stages. On a personal level, your care and kindness regarding my illness touched me deeply.
