“Farah was meticulous in her preparation… her presentation of the case, opening and closing submissions and cross examination was so thorough that it enabled us to secure all of the findings that we were seeking. Furthermore, her continued communication throughout the hearing with not only myself but my client department made us all feel that we were in very safe hands.”
