“I was more than satisfied with the consultation. Your colleague explained everything to me in detail and sent me an email after the conversation. The Jobcenter also granted us everything my child was entitled to: the excursion I called you about and we even got the money for the food at the daycare center reimbursed retroactively for two years, i.e. what I shouldn’t have paid at all. You are very welcome to tell your colleague that the advice was great and that I am very happy about it.”
