'The advice and the emotional support he has given have been invaluable. They helped me to pare back statements, remove emotion and stick to the facts: advising on strategy and realistic outcomes.' Rachael W.
'Well what can I say and where do I start! My journey was a long one with unexpected twists at every turn, at times the hurdles seemed daunting, confusing and often insurmountable, that was until I met Phil and learnt of the amazing work he and his team do. Phil thinks outside of the box, is always one step ahead with his planning, his honest pragmatic approach reduced the immense stress child proceedings can often bring' Hilary W
