  • “I found out about Osbornes after attending their free legal advice clinic at St Michael’s Church. From the start, I was given an excellent service which I would rate as 100%. If it was not for Joanne I would have lost my home and would be sleeping on the streets right now. I found all the staff members very nice, friendly and professional. I would highly recommend Osbornes to my friends.”

    Dominic Gallagher, possession client
