I wanted to say a very big "thank you" for securing my house for me. Your help and advice was just wonderful. It has been a trying 18 months for us all but thankfully it has all worked out.
It has been a pleasure to meet so thank you very much again, I really appreciate everything you have done for me."
Thank you for the final Estate correspondence and enclosed documents which arrived today.
Many thanks again to you and Korinne for all your help.
Thank you so much for all that you have done for me over the last 3.5 years. It was a long road and at times very testing and frustrating. I do hope you not have the pleasure of coming into contact with the other side ever again. It will stay with me for many years I am sure and many stories later.
You were amazing the whole way through the process, calm, reassuring, professional, supportive and showed empathy which for me was a big part of getting through the case. I know why you are so good at your job and if only my ex had a family law specialist the time to settle the case would have been half, I am sure.
Take care, thanks so much."
Just wanted to say thankyou. You did a great job today. You are right it wasn't the outcome I really wanted! But, it was probably the fairest and for that I thank you."
"Dear David and Korinne,
I would like to thank you for all the work and help you gave xxxx and myself regarding the settlement of my father's will. Thank you for your efficiency and thoroughness with all the details. It is certainly a relief to have it all completed."
I'm thrilled and honestly did not expect it! I had very little hope of recovering anything after the way they have behaved. Thanks for your excellent advice and the wonderful result.
Well we finally got there. What an effort and to think that you and your team do it every day and speaking of your team, please thank both Anushika and Dominic on our behalf. Thank you once again David for everything!

"Thanks Rob – I can hardly believe that it is actually over!
Fidan – my sincere thanks to you. You have a tough job, but I always believed you had my back and I deeply appreciated your support and wisdom."

Thank you for the estate finalisation documents. I am most grateful for all your work and perseverance on this matter, which I’m sure you found somewhat tedious. Your professionalism and patience are impressive. I have really appreciated your support, particularly in the early stages of the matter. I hope you have a lovely Christmas. Kind Regards and heartfelt thanks."
We have just received your summary and statement and wish to thank you and your team for the excellent job in managing what was, at times, a little stressful !!

Just letting you know that your “draft with your instructions” for my affidavit makes it so much easier for me to write it than the ones I had to write before. Thank you for that, well done!"
"Thanks for everything Fidan, I really appreciate that you have done for me.
Wishing you a merry Christmas."
A big thankyou to yourself and David for all your help. It has been so easy with you handling the process for us. All the best for Xmas."
"Thanks Richard Martyn, you have done a great job, thank you."
"Thank you so much Richard Martyn, I appreciate all the work you did."
Please thank David for the very quick turnaround of this letter for my purchase."
I would like to thank you very much for all the time, effort and patience you and your team put into my case.
I know my case was not the "normal" / "text book" case that you would experience, however I really appreciated you and your team listening to my concerns (when I had them), without rushing me or cutting me off, when I called the office to voice them.
Yes I know I am a "demanding" person, and in this case client. At least I say things as they are and I appreciate being told the truth, brutal as it may be. You were never fazed and your team was never frazzled. You are a true professional and your team reflected your standards. I am also grateful for your saying "We are problem solvers", this was a saying I would say to clients and somewhere along the line I had forgotten that everything has a solution, it may need compromise however there is always a solution.
I wish you all the success and happiness that comes your way as you deserve it. You are a hard working individual who strives for positive/best outcomes not only for your clients but for those you come in contact with.
I hope you have a great evening and a restful long weekend."
"Thanks for organizing that with all communication at short notice. This “service” I didn’t get with my former solicitors. Thank you, have a great weekend, I am praying for your strength and wellbeing,"
Thanks for taking my call today... Again thank you for everything your not just a solicitor you are a good counselor and great person who listens. Hope you have a great afternoon."
Thanks for being an integral part of getting to the key to freedom!"
Thank you very much for your assistance with our purchase and making the entire process a breeze. We were very happy with your service and felt that both you and your colleagues were thorough, prompt and always kept us informed of any developments in a timely manner."
"Thanks for the hard work. It's nice having a win for once."
