    I was handled very well by Michael, I had no idea how any of it was going to run & you did what seemed to me an excellent job of explaining everything and helping me get everything ready for today. Michael was great and put me at ease over the phone and today at court. As he said to me afterwards I got pretty much the best possible outcome from a bad situation. So thanks again to you both.
