Your advice was always candid and in good faith… Without your assistance, I do not believe I would have reached closure with this matter as quickly as I have. I have nothing but admiration for your persistence in pursuing my best interests despite constant setbacks and obstacles.. I would not hesitate to recommend your services to others in need of assistance….

“The advice that I received from Emersons was to the point and correct. Aish anticipated a scenario, which later came true and I am truly grateful, that I followed their advice early on during my separation which protected my financial position at a time when I was most vulnerable.”
