“The case involved an immense amount of work, but also fine judgment. I just want to put on record that you assistance on this case was invaluable; you were always efficient and clear with your administration and advice. As well as your clear understanding of the law I think you also showed sensitivity to people and especially to a child’s needs in such difficult circumstances. I also appreciate your careful handling of the hearings in the High Court.”
