Dear Friends,
I called up today for advice about my fiance's case. It has caused us a lot of worry, ever since she, my Maria, told about it last month. I was shocked and if not a little hurt. But I went into action, from Boxing Day, to see what we can do.
Search online lead me to your fantastic website. So much information and help. I needed some answers. I called around 2.30pm today and the lady I spoke with could not been more clearer and logical. The one thing I was very worried about was my Maria's reputation as a medical professional, who is 51 years ago.
With the understanding I have with the process, I feel confident that we can (and I want to win), this dispute. Many, many, many thanks for all your help.
