Lucy’s professional and effective approach was very much appreciated in what I know was a quite (thankfully) unusual case and tricky to navigate. Being quite a stressful time for me, this was invaluable in ensuring that I was fully prepared. This also put me at ease on the day and Lucy’s handling of the hearing ensured we achieved the outcome we were seeking.Close quote
