Nash and Co, and particularly Eleanor Barber took me from an almost impossible place to proceed from, to regular contact with my son. Which I hasten to add is going very well. Eleanor’s a very impressive person and lawyer. She’s without doubt, the best advocate I’ve ever met. She spoke excellently for me.
