Christine Howden : I first went to another lawyer after the death of my husband. We owned an apartment in Turkey. I had all my papers as required under Turkish Law. He accepted the case, charged a very high price for 2008. I returned to UK to await the result. There was no correspondence from him so I arranged to meet him in 2010. He then informed me the case had been to court and was rejected three times. I told him to close the case and we would try to sort it out at a later date. I felt I could not go further. It was a constant worry to me. In May 2015 I met Burcu who immediately explained the correct procedure. I felt confident in her. In a month she sent me an e-mail informing me I won the case. Burcu took me to all the necessary offices in Turkey.. Nothing was too much trouble for her… I would highly recommend her to anyone…

She was so strong and positive and my shoulder to cry on too. I couldn’t have got through it without her.

Again my biggest thanks and utmost respect for you and the wonderful friend you have now become to me. I wish you every success in your bright and promising  future . Best Regards.

This meant there were no interpretation problems or misunderstandings of the process involved. The whole sale was conducted whilst we were in  the UK with Burcu in Turkey. This saved us time and money. Burcu is very efficient and all e-mails and messages were always promptly answered and written or spoken in English. The best part is we received a large amount of money right after the sale in our bank account without doing much!!! I have no hesitation in highly recommending Burcu as a solicitor.

Dawn Weardon: We were selling a Villa in Gocek in Turkey and living in England. We were recommended Burcu  to act on our behalf for selling our property and also for acting as our power of attorney. From the beginning of the process Burcu kept us informed of all the procedures carried out. She acted very professionally and was proficient in her duties. As you can imagine living in another country with someone acting on your behalf can be worrying, but there were no issues that couldn’t be dealt with. I would have no hesitation recommending Burcu to act in a professional capacity.

AIan Board : Hello Burcu,  this is just a quick note to say many thanks for the very professional & efficient service you provided supporting & overseeing the sale of our house in Turkey…
The whole transaction took just two weeks from start to finish… You kept in constant communication & I thought, went the extra mile, particularly when monies were being sent back to the UK providing photos of transactions, bills, even bank staff performing. Very impressive offering reassurance when dealing with an overseas sale… After all, we are 4.2 hours away on a plane and there was no need to fly out…

Trust me the buying and selling of properties over here in the UK is usually very different with far more stress… You on the other hand provided quite the opposite. I would have no hesitation providing a reference or endorsement for the legal services you offer. If I recall, you were recommended to me by another one of your clients selling a property in Turkey who had enjoyed the same service. I would do exactly the same…

Dawn and Andrew Bellamy : We would like to say a big thank you to Burcu  as our solicitor for the excellent service she has provided whilst we were purchasing our house. She was very professional and went beyond and above what she needed to do… Nothing was too much trouble and she definitely went the extra mile. I would highly recommend her services and she is a lovely, approachable person too..

Bob Smith : Hi Burcu, I can honestly say you dealt with my legal case with care and consideration for the sad task we had to deal with. I would recommend you to anyone that needs good legal advice. I thank you for bringing a positive end to the Turkish legal procedure we had to deal with.

Lynee Tabone : Burcu we greatly value your support, honesty, expertise and advice in getting my children and I through a very messy inheritance transfer, the sale of the assets and the difficult legal challenges around some of that. 

You were recommended to me but I had no idea at the time how that might work and knew no other lawyers in Turkey. Since then, I have had a very clear demonstration of the extent to which you are an excellent and fierce advocate for my children, always working with their best interests in mind. You have been very easy to talk to and get along with, kept us informed about the progress and provided clear information on the possible options and the costs throughout. I have been very, very grateful for that recommendation over the past months! I would be more than happy to recommend your services to others.

Kay Cummins : Hi Burcu, just wanted to wish you and your family a very Happy New Year.

Nick and Angela Roberts : Burcu assisted us with the purchase of an apartment in Turunc, near Marmaris, Mugla. From start to finish, she made the process as simple and straightforward as possible, giving us clear advice and information, and managing the bureaucratic processes for us both while we were there, and on our return to England. She liaised with the estate agent and the sellers to make everything happen very quickly and successfully, and in a very professional and also very friendly and personal way. We would not hesitate to use her again, nor to recommend her to anyone wanting to buy a property in Turkey.

Al Smith : I have had the privilege of meeting Burcu in her role as a lawyer and I am so happy to say that I couldn’t have dealt with a more professional, caring, knowledgeable and friendly lady.

I will definitely be working with her again for all my legal issues, from wills and probate planning to any commercial transactions.

Apart from her professionalism, she is a very nice woman

Joanna McDonald : Having needed to go through the Inheritance process in Turkey I was introduced to Burcu.  I had been advised by various people that the process was long and very complicated, so I was very apprehensive all round. On meeting Burcu these apprehensions were soon put to one side as she diligently explained the process and what was required. Throughout the process she kept in touch offering helpful advice very quickly as and when required. This process is now complete and it would not have been possible without Burcu and her professionalism and compassion. I have no hesitation in recommending Burcu and I would like to thank her for all her help during a very difficult time.

Jean Stanley : Burcu was very efficient with what she did for me. l would recommend her services to anyone who needs legal help.
