Samuel Okoronkwo met with me an explained all of my legal rights related to the purchase of the house and was extremely thorough and professional. As we spoke I realized that there are many other issue that I will need legal advice about once I move to the UK. In particular I will be seeking advice about a well/trust and also business interests. I was extremely pleased that Samuel will be able to help me in these areas as well. I actually see a long fruitful relationship into the future.
