  • Many thanks for your advice James. Thank you once again for the absolutely outstanding way in which you dealt with this matter for me – you helped in not only dealing with the issue from a legal perspective but you were such an incredible support when it was all getting to me emotionally and causing such great worry. Your kind ear and sensible perspective was so supportive. I won’t hesitate to recommend your services to anyone I meet who could be helped.
