"I cannot fault Sally in anyway for her an amazing Care attention detail and absolute support that she has given throughout this entire process. Her attention to detail and willingness to go that in this case has been truly amazing, and it was her tenacious search for the truth that really did help in the long run with the charges. At the end of the day, she is just an amazing woman and cared for me so well I can’t thank her enough."
