I would like to put on record my thanks for the efforts of Rosalind Andrews, who has done a fantastic job in ensuring a strong Objection was delivered to the Council yesterday, and also in recognition of her efforts in advising, coaching and supporting me through what has been a long, complex and hugely frustrating process.
In all my dealings with Rosalind she balances the legal side with the human side perfectly, which has been a constant source of reassurance to myself in what has often been a daunting and emotional experience.
Rosalind is an absolute credit to your organisation and I would be grateful if you would pass on my sincere thanks for all her help and support.
Given my experience I plan to use HCR for all my future undertakings.
