"I have nothing but admiration and gratitude for the care and support during the 4 years that I have dealt with Rachel Seager and her team. Kathlea communicated with kindness whilst answering my calls or promptly returning them. Rachel came to my home and made me feel that the service she was giving was far more than a client solicitor but a friendship that gave me the trust and courage to continue. She gave me the feeling that she cared about the outcome far more than financial but also my personal circumstance and my health.
When I was turned away from another prominent law firm I was not sure there could be an outcome but she helped me through every step. I wish to also mention during the last part of the process Rachel led me through it without rush with great care to the end. Shine thank you for Rachel and her team, she is a shining guide through a tiring and long process that some may become careless to their client, not Rachel. My phone calls with both Rachel and Kathlea we’re always answered with a kind and friendly voice, a very important and comforting part of a distance built relationship. Thank you to Daniel and Paul I am very grateful for the work on the day and extraordinary result."
