This is the third time I've used Jonathan Ablett for buying or selling a house. The first time was three and a half years ago, then this past month he helped with the home we sold and then the house we just bought. He is very professional, makes an effort to have a flexible schedule, always works in your best interest, and will answer every question you have. I recommend him to anyone requiring a lawyer for property reasons.
