Thank you for your help and guidance through this process, both my wife and I were filled with confidence from the moment we met with you and knew we were in good hands. Whilst the situation as a whole is clearly not ideal, the agreement which you have negotiated for me is excellent and I cannot thank you enough for your work towards this. You have assisted in turning a really awful situation for me personally into something more positive.
Not that I would wish this situation on anyone else but I absolutely will not hesitate to recommend you in any future similar employment based cases.
