"Thank you for all your hard work, ingenuity and perseverance with my case. I can still hardly believe the outcome and I won't ever forget what you've achieved for me. Thanks for always taking the time to explain things and for all the reassurance, it really helped at times when I was feeling low. I hope I can now walk away from that awful year and look ahead."
