I wanted to write you a note to say thank you David for all your help and support throughout my divorce proceedings over the last six months. You have worked extremely hard on my behalf and I am very pleased with the outcome that we achieved. You have also been a source of invaluable advice and guidance throughout the collaborative process and enabled me to be a confident participant in the discussions with my husband. Above all, you have ensured that the process of divorce was as painless as possible, and for this I am truly grateful.
