Mr Patrick Girod-Roux, who instructed Sue to investigate his case wrote: “Sue…If this Covid was not here l would have liked to send you a bunch of flowers as a token of my appreciation for your attention at your office… if in the future I ever need a solicitor on a no win no fee situation I will be calling your firm and that goes to all my personal and professional friends. I was so impressed with you that even though you knew very quickly that I had virtually no chance you have still helped me. That I found very honourable and unbelievable in the selfish world we live in… Your help has been a tremendous support for me and I am so grateful. Thank you very much.”
