Hi Erica , just thought it was about time I thanked you for been there when I was younger. I always felt like you went out your way for me , your words of wisdom have stuck with me and played a big part in my life. I wouldn't be where I am now if it wasn't for your help .

I was very pleased with the overall service I received and I feel like I've been in good hands with Erica.

I felt well informed about possible outcomes of my trial. Erica Topham understood my situation and represented me well in court.
