I can’t thank you enough for your help and advice over the past couple of years, it’s such a great feeling to be in this position now. You went that extra mile and helped me get so much more out of my divorce than I ever thought I would. It’s been an interesting part of my life with a few challenges along the way and your advice was always right and put my mind at so much ease. I will always be grateful to you.
