Robin Garrett

Robin was a partner at two major Edinburgh law firms for 25 years before he escaped in 2010.

TESTIMONIALS

  • “We are impressed by Solutions because of the qualifications of the personnel. Shirley is dedicated to our account and the relationship works well. If it wasn’t for the fact that there are some things that Shirley cannot do from a distance such as the daily banking of cheques, we wouldn’t know she wasn’t actually in our building.”

    John Cumming, Partner, Ennova Law, Edinburgh
  • A fast, reliable and friendly service - helping to keep us on the straight and narrow!

    Mike Nellany, Partner, Nellany & Co, Ayrshire
  • "We have used Cashroom Solutions for some years now and have always received such prompt and efficient service that it is just as if we still have an in-house cashier. Beth is super efficient and friendly - she feels like our own collegue."

    Scott Campbell, Director, The Chamber Practice, Dundee
