“I would like to say a personal thank you Grace for your efficient professional work in the case that you carried out for me. You were not only a effective professionals but amazing in how you dealt with me and the moral support you offered me at all times, especially since this case was extremely difficult due to the restrictions arising due to the pandemic and also my lack of English. However, we overcame that thanks to Grace’s brilliant help as a translator at all times of the proceeding. I felt very supported at all times by you, and that is why I will never forget your exemplary work. I thank you eternally for your work and how you treated me.”
