Both Liz and Alice worked exceptionally hard on our case, doing so with compassion and dedication. Both took us through everything step by step, constantly on hand to answer questions and provide advice and support. Their knowledge of complex medical needs of children was exemplary. I would have no hesitation in recommending them. After a very difficult journey they were successful in getting the resolution we required.Close quote
