"Belinda would be my choice for a marimonial lawyer"
"Belinda, your absolute belief in my cause and your unfailing support, at a time of great emotional trauma and distress for myself, was incredible, and I cannot express just how grateful I am to you. You were patient with my ramblings (and there were many of those!) but you always listened and took me seriously. You always knew exactly how I would want to respond (most times, even before I did! ) and you encouraraged me, and kept me believing when my confidence took more knocks and I started to doubt myself. I will always be grateful to .... and ..... too as, because of them, our paths crossed, and I cannot imagine having shared this journey with anyone else. Of course, I hope that I will not require any legal assistance of this kind in the future, but I will have no hesitation in calling you, if fate deals me a similar hand again .. or, indeed, of recommending you to others."
