“Thank you and Ed for everything you done for me, things are going so well for me and Ava. I feel I owe you so much!! Thank you!!!” – RC
“First off I want to thank you for everything you done for me in the past 6 months. From the start when the interim care order was made I have felt you have always been a call/text away and your handling of everything has been nothing less than perfect. I believe if it wasn’t for you I don’t think I ever would’ve gotten the outcome I believe I deserve and my daughter returned to me.
Even when I have been upset on the phone I have felt you have been there for me in that sense also. From the initial contact with Gemma Hyett through to the final hearing I knew I was in good hands.
I wish you and Ed all the very best in life and I will be forever grateful in everything you have done for me” – RC
