Over the years, we have struggled to get the help we need with our daughter's disabilities. At times it has been overwhelming and, as she has gotten older, we have had to face more and more challenges which have been very difficult. Over the last couple of years, Potter Rees Dolan have helped us tremendously and feel now we have a voice and all we want is for her to not have stress in her life. Peter Renshaw has made our Appeal easier to manage and a lot less stressful for us.
