I had been referred by a friend who has a close connection with the firm. I met with Mr Henry Brookman who offered me a free initial consultation to discuss my matter. Mr Brookman is very thorough and has great attention to detail and care. I genuinely feel that he has a great understanding of my circumstances and situation. Moving forward, I have received continuous updates (when relevant) regarding developments to my situation and all correspondences are clear.
