The customer service was reliable, efficient and friendly. The legal advice received was good, and reflected in court. The lead on the case was available for phone calls, and easily contactable... Although a lengthy procedure, a final fair and successful result.

Reshma was highly recommended to me by a friend. She has great knowledge and was able to answer all my questions in a way that didn’t feel overwhelming despite their sensitive nature... I felt empowered and have a far greater idea of what to expect going forward and how we will achieve the best outcome.

Reshma was amazing with my initial consulting. She broke down the step by step process which I needed to take to move forward in my situation. I would definitely highly recommend.
