We hired Kay after being put off by the high fees charged by others for an ordinary estate of a home and money in the bank. Kay was excellent at telling me what she needed, what she would do and keeping me informed. The estate was all done at a very reasonable price.

I contacted Quill Legal as i needed a statutory declaration signed for renewing my provisional licence.Kay was very professional and the process was very straight forward. Kay was very good at guiding me through the process, as I was new to the service. They were very kind, friendly and understanding.When I went to drop off my documents to the office, the staff were very helpful and welcoming.I would highly recommend Quill Legal should you require notarial services.

Kay Blaikie helped me certify some documents for a job application. From the beginning she was very clear about the cost of the operation and was helpful and professional at all times. Very satisfied; I would choose Quill Legal again in a heartbeat.

I sought a solicitor for document certification and Kay Blaikie was able to help me with this promptly and efficiently. I also appreciated an unexpected discount as I had a few documents all needing certification. Overall, couldn't recommend more highly, and Quill Legal will be my first point of contact if I need similar services in the future.
