I recently completed the sale of my house in Cyprus with Elias Neocleous & Co LLC and I just wanted to tell you how impressed I was with your Property lawyer who handled the matter. Her professional, calm and measured approach was amazing and really reassured us when things were not that straight forward.

This lawyer is a real asset to your firm!
