After feeling very confused and lost in my situation, i was lucky enough to be referred to Jonathan at Watermark. He completely broke down all the legal jargon and explained everything in a way i could comprehend which I appreciated exponentially. Jonathan was supportive and explained every step to me so i always knew what was going on. If i am ever in a situation of a similar degree, you can bet, that Jonathan will be the first person i call. Couldn’t be happier with his help and his kindness. Thank you so much Jonathan and the team at Watermark!
