It’s a pleasure to know Helene Chryssidis. She is relaxed, easy to communicate with and highly knowledgeable about the law. Our matter was dealt with efficiently and resolved quickly. Unfortunately, the matter also involved family members and Helene navigated the scenario professionally and put our minds at ease. Helene is trustworthy and sincere.
