- “What can I say other than Wow. Shabnam and her team are a life saver. Rishi was the one who first took on my case. He was a professional and a good listener but later on he transferred my case to Shabnàm and I was worried about a new person taking on the case so I put forward some questions to Rishi who then told me that he has total confidence and respect for Shabnam. Hodge Jones & Allen’s team are simply the best. Their level of professionalism is second to none. Thank you Shabnam and thanks Rishi Joshi.”
