I know you will say you are simply doing your job, but I want to thank you for yesterday.
Having you in charge put me completely at ease. I am slowly beginning to understand the process a little and to realise that I am not and can never be 'on trial' here.

Thank you for being so incredibly thorough, committed and just damn good at what you do! I know its far from resolved but I am so reassured by yesterday.

I owe my future to Claire Parker and Lisa Boileau. I cannot speak highly enough of your staff, not only did they advise me so professionally but they showed me that I did have rights and I did have a future when, emotionally, I had given up on my life. I firmly believe they went the extra mile and I wouldn't be here without them.

I just wanted to say thank you to your wonderful company, who I will recommend to my friends and colleagues, and a special thank you again to Lisa and Claire, as I'm eternally grateful.
