A quote from a letter Elen received from the Defendant’s mother after he was acquitted of rape reads: – “I wish to thank you for all your hard work and for achieving such a result in what I thought was a hopeless case…your professionalism and attention to detail was second to none… your sensible and confident approach made us feel reassured throughout what was to become a very long drawn out and stressful experience”
