I’ve been so happy with the work you’ve done for me and to have achieved a good settlement. I’ve always felt fully included in all decisions made as you provided clear advice on often complicated matters. I always felt like I was able to contact you at any point to discuss things in more detail if necessary. During difficult parts of the case, I found you and everyone involved to be sympathetic and fully supportive of my emotional well-being.’
