Jabir Patel, Maya Solicitors
I'd like to express my gratitude for the sensitive and caring way in which Carol Micah handled this matter. I was consulted by the child's Solicitor who advised that the guardian felt she had done a sterling job with this vulnerable mother who felt she had been properly represented. It is always good to know that you are placing a client in safe hands when you are unable to undertake the hearing yourself.
