    I want to say a huge thank you for giving my daughter legal advice and especially for going with her to the station. It has been a really difficult week and she was incredibly anxious about it. It was an enormous relief to have a clear steer from you and to know that you would be there to make sure it went according to plan.

    I  have emerged with a result that I just could not have anticipated, mainly due to the in court efforts of Emma who was an absolute star in her presentation to the bench, I felt that she pushed it to the limit and was successful with her efforts.
