Katie Tizzard and her team have managed to achieve in just 2 weeks what I have been trying to do for the last 2 years. They are very efficient, friendly and very easy to deal with. The previous legal team I engaged to help were 3 times as expensive and over 3 months achieved nothing. Rix & Kay and the wonderful Katie, however, obviously know how to handle non responsive executors and their legal team without the massive outlay of courts and barristers. I can’t thank you enough for all your help. I would recommend Rix and Kay to all.
