Miss S, Sutton-in-Ashfield

I would like to put on record and to thank you for the manner in which you dealt with this claim, being both highly professional whilst at the same time showing real empathy.

The outcome was very much along the lines we expected, but at least I got some personal satisfaction from pursuing the matter-- and he got the monies which were properly owed to him.
