"Jessica Sewell held my hand and navigated me through 17 months of what can only be described as one of the most stressful periods of my life. Nothing, and I mean nothing, was too much trouble for her. Jessica was extremely kind, understanding and caring throughout. It would have been very easy to give up the fight as I found the journey very difficult as the case continued her reassurances kept my hope alive of a positive outcome." - 5* Trustpilot review
