I would like to thank you for all your help in this trying time for me.
My sincere thanks to Lisa Ball who recently acted on my behalf in relation to child care arrangements. This was a very complex case involving the care and support for my disabled son and myself as the primary carer for my child.
Lisa was extremely supportive and professional and I trusted her implicitly. After a fraught 7 years of difficulties Lisa, in my opinion, was the only person who understood the situation and resolved the issues which were present.
Her professionalism and negotiation skills with the other parties was outstanding and she took the lead when needed and appropriately.
My son and I are now able to move forward knowing we are protected and free to experience the peace and happiness we deserve.
Thank you so much Lisa for all that you did for us.
Thanks for all your help! I’m so pleased – fresh start for 2020.
