  • "Mr. Hammond provided me with an excellent Notary service when I needed various documents certified at short notice for a medical job. He was extremely professional and readily approachable. After an initial meeting, my documents were notarised within 24-48 hours at a price that was cheaper than any other I had been quoted. I would recommend Mr. Hammond's services without reservation to anybody needing a Notary Lawyer in the Nottingham area."

  • "Excellent service received. Richard was friendly and approachable throughout but not afraid to tackle difficult questions. We would undoubtedly use him again in future mediations as the lack of settlement was not due to the mediator in this case who did his utmost to broker a deal."
