"Fabienne, thank you for attending the police station in support of my son. You provided both him and I with sound advice which we were both most appreciative of. I have since been informed that the police will now take no further action in this matter! It goes without saying that having your counsel during the interview made a substantial difference. If I am ever in the unfortunate circumstance to require a criminal defence solicitor then I will certainly approach you first. I shall also be recommending you to anyone I know who requires counsel! Thank you very much and well done."
