“In my initial meeting it was obvious that Ms. Bruce had a very busy schedule but she was very generous with her time and expert in her advice. I had to drop some correspondence and files in to the office a couple of times and on each occasion Ms. Bruce dropped what she was doing to see me almost immediately despite my coming in unannounced, to update me on developments with my case. I am delighted that Ms. Bruce helped me to reach a satisfactory conclusion to what I felt were some complex employment issues, but would like to highlight that she also looked after me in a way that gave me an exemplary demonstration of what fantastically flawless customer service looks like.” William J
