Rebecca says: “I listen to the client and understand not only the issue but the outcome that my client wants.  I also draw on my experience to suggest things they may not have considered to help guide them in that decision.  I will cut to the heart of the issue as quickly as possible and then offer clear and concise guidance and advice, and a commercial solution to the problem, whilst not ignoring or losing sight of the human aspect that pervades through all of my work.   I will support clients to push for the best outcome in a cost and time effective way.”  

"I want to express my gratitude to David and Rebecca for their outstanding efforts on my behalf. Right from our initial discussions, they provided invaluable assistance and were upfront about the merits of my case. Their support made a challenging period much more manageable, and the final outcome exceeded my expectations. I am delighted with the results, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend their services to friends and family facing employment issues in the future. Thank you both for your assistance in this matter."
