"Let me say that in over 20 years in business, I have never interacted with a Solicitor who has demonstrated such dedication to duty above and beyond what could have been expected. Helen is an exceptional ambassador for your company. a real lady who dealt with my complicated legal issues in a manner that has forever enhanced my perception of the legal profession. She was competent for sure but it was the added value in her approach, she took it personally, she cared and she really did try to bring out the humanity underpinning any and every legal action. To helen and my barrister, I am forever in their debt for the way they treated me with compassion and the skillful way they dealt with my case to minimize hurt and pain. A credit to their profession and a credit to your firm. Please be sure to take note of my e-mail /contact details because I would be very happy to stand over these comments and recommend your firm to anyone."
