“Remziye’s support and effort on my case has been exceptional. I was very fortunate to have her advising me on my Employment Tribunal case against my previous employer. Remziye was highly professional, diligent and very understanding of my situation and calmly outlined the steps and process once she understood the background to my case. Her strategic analysis and her patience throughout this stressful period softened the impact for me personally of the entire process.”
