Clients have said about Emily:
“I found your advice and calmness very reassuring”
“Your support was super helpful… we achieved the best outcome in the end – both financially and non-financially.”
“I have dealt with lawyers before, and the experience was always very neutral at best. Working with you has been very much an experience to the contrary though: many thanks for your valuable advice and counsel. Without your help, expertise and positive attitude, I do not think we could have achieved the good outcome that we now have. A sincere and heartfelt “thank you” for that.”
