“The service Kate provided was invaluable –in terms of knowledge, advice and very importantly, focussed efficiency to achieve the best outcome possible.

Kate was always there when I needed her. At a stressful time, her knowledge, advice and support helped me resolve my case quickly and efficiently so I could move on with my life.”

R Hafenrichter

“Five minutes into our first meeting, a small ray of sunshine had entered my life! From the moment I left her office, I instantly felt positive and rejuvenated about everything. She explained everything clearly and precisely and never, ever made me feel pressurized into making swift decisions. Whatever your final call going forward, she’d back you to the hilt. Kate was, during my case, a complete professional- incredibly patient, understanding and someone I’ve come to recommend a couple of times. And if you’re reading this, I’d recommend her to you as well.”
