You could easily "assure" customers that they are well guided & advised through every step & requirement for a divorce from start to end. As stressful as my divorce was it would have been so much worse if I had to chase up & do all the paperwork done - I was so trusting in Jackie knowing she had everything in hand & was always on top of what was required!
Thank you for all you hard work throughout the case, I also appreciate all of your assistance. This case has gone on a long while and I don't believe I would have got to where I am today without your work. Thank you.
