My Lawyer was very professional and considerate when seeing for the first time. Although I can't afford a private Lawyer at this time I have found a way. Because the stress I was under was far too much for me to take on alone while trying to start a new life with my 5 children. I highly recommend this company!

BEST LAWYERS EVER. Shame they don’t have the same taste in coffee as me, but I’ll let that pass. Thanks for looking after me guys – smiling as I leave this review. I’d give 10 stars but Google won’t allow it *sigh*
