You are simply the best.

You are so incredibly supportive, kind, reassuring and funny.

Your response time is outstanding.

You were such a great strong dependable voice when it was all a bit raw and grim.

Thank you for everything you have done for me - not only from a practical perspective in terms of getting the outcome we wanted but also from a personal perspective. Your support, encouragement and kind words spurred me on and inspired me to keep going even when I felt like David taking on Goliath. I feel incredibly lucky to have met you!

Thank you so so much again for today and for everything you’ve done for me since we met! I thought at the start of this that I would never feel like I had won - no matter what happened. But today I do. I burst into tears after I came off our call earlier - it feels as though everything is over. I can move on stronger than ever and with my head held high.

As a small token of my absolute gratitude however I will transfer a sum of £xxxx once in receipt of my settlement as I am truly appreciative of your expert guidance and swift resolution. You are beyond awesome!

I do want to say that I feel very privileged to have had you on my side over this last year - and have learned much about many things through our dealings, and not just employment law!

Thank you very much.

There is one more lesson. If you experience any such allegations or conflict, however trivial it may seem, always consult Gillian immediately!!

You really are superb at what you do.

I can't thank you enough!

Thanks Gillian, for standing by me and looking out for me.

I will highly recommend you (if you wish) to anyone who needs an Employment Law Specialist.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you again. You have been incredible. I can't thank you enough for your fantastic support and service over and beyond expectation. It was tough, but your professionalism and "no nonsense" stance, gave me the confidence to see it through. I have learnt a lot from you and am now inspired to consider a law conversion course.

I would like to thank you for all your help during the past 5 or so gruelling months, I am not sure what I would have done without you fighting my corner, your support has been invaluable.

I wish you the very best for the future, as I have said to all my friends and family if you are ever stranded on a desert Island forget the life raft, flare or last supper 'just take Gill'.

I wanted to say again what an amazing help you have been to me during the last 6 months of my ordeal. You are an inspirational women and I am very glad that I found you to help me get through this. You are incredibly tough - but rightly placed.

Thank you for brining this horrible affair to a good close. I cant thank you enough for that.

I have worked with Gillian, who styles herself as "a rottweiler with a handbag" - she should in fact style herself as a rottweiler with a prada handbag. She does exactly what she promises. Responds immediately. Takes control. Chases relentlessly and argues well for her clients. She has been perfect for the past three weeks.

Some people come into your life as lessons and some as blessings…
Gillian Howard is just that person.
A great result!
Thank you so much for everything!

You have been unfailingly supportive and your passionate outrage has been incredibly reassuring. I knew, throughout the process, that you were completely on my side and really appreciated your taking responses from the other side so personally.

You really have been fantastic.

I really do appreciate your help - your being so immediately available is incredibly reassuring!

After having been exposed to some really nasty people in the world, it's very reassuring to know that there are decent, kind and caring people like you in the world too!! That in itself is a comfort!!

Of course we will be retaining you we are delighted with your excellent service and brilliant legal advice. Thank you for your continuing support it is very much appreciated

Amazing what you achieved for me given where we started out a
month ago.

Exceptional really.

What can I say!
From the day I first met you, I knew I was in safe hands.

This is a fantastic result.

I am also very grateful for your legendary responsiveness!

We are the lucky ones to have had such excellent support and guidance from you over what was a very painful episode.

Brilliant! Absolutely fantastic…. this outcome would not have been possible without your assistance. Your dogged determination and belief in me was constant. Thank you!

you have changed our lives…. you went for [their] jugular and finally allowed me to breathe again.

You not only
handled every detail with competitive examination, but your reassured confidence makes you the 1st choice for anyone approaching a battle.

Excellent result!
Many thanks Gill for your first class service.

"Thank you for your unfailing support and for, perhaps unwittingly,
encouraging me to keep going when I was ready to give up.

There is one thing I think I need to correct: I said I was glad that you have nerves of steel. I retract that. Your nerves are clearly either titanium (highest strength to weight ratio) or
(the highest strength when things gets hot)."
