Testimonials for Rhea
“Rhea has successfully brought this matter to a satisfactory conclusion and has been professional and considered throughout.
My family and I are extremely grateful for her handling of this extremely difficult situation, involving our little boy and could not have asked for a better representative. Rhea’s conduct was proactive in both her advocacy and her advice to us. Nothing was too much and she ensured that we were kept informed at every stage of the case.
We will of course recommend both Rhea and your firm to anyone requiring the services provided by your firm”.
