"I was recommended to Lauren by a colleague to assist in the transfer of a french property pursuant to a financial order within divorce proceedings. She was instrumental in the transfer taking place, speaking to the Notaire direct to iron out issues and advising our mutual client on the conveyancing documents which were in french. I will definitely consult her in the future in cases involving french property transactions as I felt her assistance was invaluable."
Erica Cottrell, Solicitor, Harold G Walker
"French Law Matters, through their Principal Mrs Lauren Annicchiarico, have acted for me in regard to succession of real estate in France where the French deed of gift appears to be contradicted by the English Will. They have been extremely helpful in translations and negotiations between myself, my U.K. solicitors, and the French notaire handling the property transfer and I feel that considerably more progress has been made as a result of their help than I could possibly have achieved without it. I make particular reference to Mrs Annicchiarico's knowledge of the interaction between the English and French law systems."
Roger Smith, Lincolnshire

"It really helped to have someone who was able to read the legal information and advice as I was out of my comfort zone with regards to French law and language."
Mr and Mrs Bishop
"I contacted Lauren at a time of absolute desperation. My mother had unexpectedly died and we were faced with handling her probate issues in France where she had a bank account and owned two small properties. Not only were we dealing with immense grief but also with a complicated legal system which was being conducted in an entirely different language. The French notaries always seemed absent and no one was able to explain anything to us without having to pay for expensive translations which were still full of confusing legal jargon once translated. From the first phone call with Lauren I was instantly put at ease. She took the time to explain the French way of probate to me, timelines and what to expect. She clearly explained her role and how she might help and also the limitations to what she would be able to achieve with timelines etc. I can honestly say I don’t think we could have done this without her. She mediated throughout the entire process and used her considerable legal knowledge (and French/English translation skills) to guide us through. She is extremely professional but also personable which is much needed when you are dealing with the death of a loved one. I would not hesitate to recommend Lauren and would like to thank her for everything she did."
