“Clients need the assurance that their cases will be dealt with promptly and expertly. It is necessary to ensure that reports and court filings are not delayed which can often cause further frustration. It is part of my job to ensure cases are brought on for hearing without delay. Our clients are important to us – we want them to feel that they will receive the utmost attention and most importantly that their claims will be ultimately successful”
