What you have said about working with Rory...

The help and advice and indeed the outcome were far better than I could have ever imagined. Rory was informative, approachable and extremely efficient and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him or Kitsons.

I found Rory Wakeling to be excellent, easy to contact, friendly and patient.

I needed advice and representation with my employer at short notice. Rory Wakeling provided a very professional, personal and responsive service. I felt confident with his advice and guidance and was impressed by his “can do approach” to meet timescales.

A comment from a former Chair of Governors of a Plymouth Secondary School: “I think the service Rory has provided, has been outstanding. I do not know what the college would have done without you. Your total commitment - responding to issues irrespective of the time including weekends and sometimes late into the night, and your willingness to work with us, no matter how unreasonable the request, has simply been exceptional.
