"On behalf of our family, we want to thank your law firm, your family department, and in particular solicitor Tim Galbraith and Barrister Woodward for the great and excellent work they did for our sister, daughter, cousin and in-law.
You have shown us that there is justice in Great Britain. You have also made us believe in the British legal system. We will always be grateful.
You were very diligent in your work, hardworking, meticulous and honest. There was no discrimination, no bias, and you let us know all the details as they came in. There was no shadow of doubt in your expertise and professionalism. While we know that the event we have gone through was very strange to us, we are however grateful that we have a law firm like Stephensons working for us always even at odd times (i.e. on weekends).
Once again, thank you to all the staff at Stephensons. You have done a great job."
