I attended the Confidence in Court training yesterday. I just want to say it was an exceptional course. The lady who did the training was absolutely incredible. (Lee Teresa Moore) Her knowledge the manner in which she presented the course was professional and I have to say it was a pleasure to have met her and her wealth of knowledge speaks for itself. I gained a lot out of it and certainly feel a lot more confident if I had to attend court. Just wanted to feed this back.
“Lee: I have very strongly recommended to Denton Wilde Sapte that they should only use you. Your advice was invaluable. I was told I did very well in the Tribunal. Many thanks!”
