Effective and seamless
My wife and I have been thrown into a very difficult situation regarding her brother and the care of her father in his later years. The whole situation is extremely distressing to my wife. To complicate things further, we live in the United Kingdom. Dagmara and her team have very effectively explained our options, executed the decisions we make and kept us informed about progress. Every twist in the procedure they lay out our options. We make new decisions and they act on them as seamlessly as if we were there in London. It helps us rest easier here in England knowing that the team is keeping the case moving forward and that they have our back. – Phil
