“Thank you Emily, I want you to know that I am very happy with your help, and I truly value you. You have been so good – very professional and very patient with me, thank you.”
“Finally it is completed. Thank you so much for all your efforts with this – you have been brilliant. Time to crack open the champagne!”
“Thank you Emily for all of your help and support during what was a very difficult time. I could not have taken things forward without your help and I believe that with your guidance we achieved the best possible outcome for the children, myself and their extended family.”
“Emily, once again thank you for all your help, it was well worth the wait. We got the clean break you said we wanted and over and above what I predicted!”
“I also wanted to say a huge thank you to you for all your help and making the whole process so easy to deal with in such difficult circumstances. I’m very grateful indeed for all the work you’ve done and I’m very happy with the outcome so thank you very much indeed.”
“I can’t thank you enough for all you you’ve done so far. In my professional or personal life I have never known pain, angst, stress and anxiety like I’ve felt throughout this process, yet as I’ve stated before you have reduced these feelings considerably along the way with your support and advice. Thank you endlessly, and thank you Stowe.”
