I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your help and expertise on my claim. I felt you really surpassed yourself on Thursday’s mediation. Your expertise and tactics were absolutely brilliant and I can’t thank you enough. My faith in Solicitors has definitely been restored.
For once I made the right decision- choosing Karim Mohamed. Having Karim acting for me in a case where the other party was in Australia was never going to be easy. However Karim was efficient, and effective and always responded to my communications. A positive result. Thank you Karim and your team.
