Jade was fantastic to me and showed genuine concern and empathy towards my situation, an outstanding lady to deal with.
Having been in the audience at your talk in Birmingham, I just wanted to say what an impressive speaker you were and what an interesting talk you delivered.

Jade is incredibly efficient and one of the most considerate and professional Solicitors I have had the opportunity to work with. Jade takes the time to ensure you are fully cognisant of the options available when considering next steps. Jade has supported the CIPP in numerous engagements and her delivery at Conference Plenary sessions have provided insight and information to the membership in an easy to digest manner. Jade really connects with those around her, having an ability to easily engage with her audience. I look forward to working with Jade in the future.
