"Hi Melanie

I have just been discussing your recent case with one of our most senior cost people.

She was saying that it is one of the most complex cases on causation she has seen/drafted in the last 15 years!!!

She went out of her way to tell me what a Brilliant Lawyer you are – I’ve known this for some time ? "

I would like to thank this company and especially its representatives Mrs Caroline Godfrey and Mrs Melanie Minter for their professionalism and caring attitude in bringing my claim to a satisfactory conclusion.
