From the start, Kate offered me clear and honest advice. She is excellent on strategy and attention to detail and has worked tirelessly on my behalf, guiding me through the maze of expectations and fears.
Throughout the process, Kate has managed to consult with me to ensure that my preferences are taken into full consideration. And in addition to all of these qualities, what particularly stood out for me was Kate’s empathy, kindness and sensitivity, which supported me through the complex and painful process from start to finish.”
