“Simao was very helpful in advising on our situation with a client that was using the system to avoid paying their commercial debt to us. Simao was much more useful than the solicitors that we had prior engagement with, where they would be more interested in being paid huge sums for very little work. Simao made us feel that client care was his foremost objective. ”
