The rating option allows a maximum 5 stars. Were it possible, I would leave 20★★★★★. From the outset when I presented my case up to the conclusion, 4 years later, I was treated with the utmost courtesy and professionalism.
My case was handled by David Thomas and I do not have the words to adequately illustrate how wonderful he was. If I say that since the conclusion of my case I have recommended another client to him and will have no hesitation in doing so again.
Thank you everyone at Simpson Millar and especially David Thomas. My case was successful, thanks to your efforts. The experience was educational and indeed enjoyable. I will be forever grateful to you.Steve
