Thank you Alisha, Tom and Jason for your help and support during this time. I am so glad it is finally done.

You have been a great deal of help and support to me during this time and I am very grateful.

It's been a long road, thanks for your kind words of advice and guidance throughout this time, will definitely recommend you guys.

I'd have to say Alisha's a star, on the ball attentive and got more bite than a Jack Russell, though dressed as a Cavoodle. Loved working with you all.

We will have to arrange a dinner to thank you all when I return from overseas.

Firstly and foremost I would like to thank you for helping me with a very very difficult and trying part of my life for without your expert advice and direction I doubt that I would have made it this far, your help in this regard is of a degree of excellence that I have not come across and probably never will again.

A very special thank you.

Again, I would like to thank you so much for your due diligence and all your efforts.

Love your work.

Thanks Alisha, you've been awesome.

I leaned on you a lot and valued your counsel and support throughout this process.

It's a relief to have this done and hopefully we get a positive outcome on the house.

I would like to thank you with all my heart for your support through the last 12 months. It has been a very difficult time for me.

I would like to thank you and Gary for your dedication and for trying to get the best outcome under the circumstances. I know that dealing with the other parties was particularly difficult so I thank you for achieving this outcome.

Thank you also for your patience and understanding.

I would like to wish you the best in your careers. I am certain that Alisha will go on to have a stellar career. And I am sure you will continue to grow the practice thanks to your skill and care.

Thank you so much for all you have done for me in the last few months. I was terrified of leaving him, even though I knew I had to.

While the process has been very difficult, it was much less traumatic than I thought it would be and that is down to your calm, strategic and firm legal support.

You have been very understanding of the impact this has had on my mental health and fought for a great outcome for me. I always felt so well looked after by you.

Thank you! You have helped me to get my life back.

THANK YOU for everything, you bring so much kindness, calmness and patience to this adventure of a marriage divorce.

I'm very looking forward to moving on and want to thank you for your help during times when I feel most vulnerable.

You really helped my kids and myself a lot!

Thanks again for all your help. It’s been a difficult journey for sure but I appreciate your support and guidance through this time.

Thank you for all your help, you have been fantastic and I will be sure to recommend you onto anyone else I come across. You have made this process a little more bearable.

We weren't expecting things to be finished so quickly.

Thanks again for all your help and we also hope that we don't chat again anytime soon!

Good luck over the coming months, with your new arrival to the family

I just want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything you have done for me. Your attention to detail, hard work, straight talk, good advice, availability and humour have all been so appreciated by me. And to think you did this all whilst being pregnant! Not even a moment of pregnant brains did you show haha!

I don’t think you actually understand how much of a positive and steadying impact you’ve made on my life during this really testing, stressful time.

I hope to keep in touch and thank you, thank you, thank you once again! I am so incredibly grateful.

As I have said to you previously, Alisha is a wonderful asset to your company. She has been so helpful to me, which I have greatly appreciated.

Alisha, you are a genius!

I really appreciate that you have listened to what I have been saying and feeling.

Thanks to Alisha and Gill for making such a difficult time in my life more easily manageable. You both gave me some self respect back which was invaluable in moving forward.

Wishing you all the best for the future.

Thanks so much for all your help and support you provided to myself and my family over the past few years. You have always been very attentive and extremely helpful.

I wish you and your new little family all the very best, I hope everything goes smoothly and you enjoy being a Mum. Congratulations.

Say hello to Gill and thank her for her help too.
