Recent Testimonials

"Neil is a very competent and experienced professional.  He listens well and quickly picks out the key issues.  The advice which he gives is practical and relevant. At no stage have I felt pressured to buy his services.  A session with Neil is like a conversation with an old and trusted friend."

Richard Ollin, Gloucestershire

"Excellent service from a truly independent adviser - why go to anyone else?"
John Lannon, Cheltenham


"We are really grateful to Neil for helping to set up our Lasting Powers of Attorney.  This is something that was on our 'to do' list and proved very straightforward with Neil's clear explanation of the options and knowledge of the process.  Like so many people, we had our Wills written many years ago and now feel far less anxious about what might happen if either of us became unable to make decisions about finance or care.  Our grown-up children also feel assured that sensible arrangements are in place."
Edward & Alyson Gillespie, Cheltenham

"Thank you very much for everything which is now sorted.  I received the registered LPA this month, even though it was dated 27th October, but I have been to the bank and that is sorted.  My financial advisers are also happy so thank you for doing everything for me; it took a lot of stress out of life."

John & Hilary Fisher, Cheltenham

"Having recently been involved with a solicitor regarding the preparation of LPAs and deputyships, it was very noticeable to me and my family the difference in the professional approach, and less time involved in the preparation and completion of my Will and Trust documents.  Both of these were completed at a very reasonable cost.  I would fully recommend dealing with the Neil Gayler & Co. for the preparation of any such legal documents similar to those mentioned above.  A very pleasant and efficient experience."

John Daft, Cheltenham

"Last year, Neil drafted Lasting Powers of Attorney for my husband and me.  He and his staff are very pleasant, professional and give meticulous attention to detail.  We have been dealing with Neil Gayler for several years and have no hesitation in recommending his company."

Rosanne Jamieson, Stonehouse

"Neil gave me a Zoom consultation as I had asked for some advice about a pension.  He was really helpful and made everything clear - I relayed the information to my mum and she said, "That's such sound advice".  He suggested other options for me and I think he's a genuine expert who shows consideration and care to everyone.  Highly recommended!"

"Neil has been my financial adviser since 2012 and has always been most professional and understanding of my financial needs.  Most recently, my daughter and I sought his services with regard to creating Lasting Powers of Attorneys for both finance and welfare.  He walked us through the process, explaining everything in detail in a sensitive manner, taking time to answer all our questions, however trivial.  The documents were drafted quickly and efficiently afterwards and signed by us within a week.  The whole process could not have been easier thanks to Neil and Helen."

Carmen Woods, Cheltenham

"I’ve worked in Financial Services all my working life, but pensions have always remained a bit of a mystery to me.  Neil has been superb at explaining the complexities of pension planning and the options available to both myself and my wife.  Without Neil’s expertise, we would not have known about the different options available to us and most likely would have simply taken our pensions from the provider.  Neil has completed a full and comprehensive review of our finances, pensions, Wills and Powers of Attorney.  He has now modelled the different scenarios for us and introduced us to his colleague when regulated financial advice was needed.  We now have options that we were previously unaware of that could provide a greater income in our planned retirement, as well as ensuring our welfare is well taken care of from a legal perspective.  Thank you, Neil, for your patience and expertise, which has been invaluable."

"Neil helped me organise a pension following my divorce.  He recommended a product which has performed very well in the three years or so since the initial investment.  In a recent review, he gave me excellent advice which meant that I discovered I am able to retire next year at the age of 55.  This is five years earlier than I had assumed that I would be able to do. Furthermore, he explained how I am able to withdraw an income I can live on in a tax efficient manner.  He has helped me plan to achieve a work free, stress free, better quality of life that enables me to retire at the same time as my new husband.  Thank you, Neil, for your expert advice and helping me to focus on quality of life whilst still young enough to make the most of it."

Victoria Osborne, Cheltenham

"I'm so grateful to Neil for his support that when my other pension options approach maturity, I'll be contacting him again and he is now on top of my list to recommend to colleagues and friends."

Terry Jones, Cheltenham
