''So, I made my way back to chambers after finishing in court, and this is what was waiting for me. A client that I represented a year ago sent this to me.

''She had a 5-year-old daughter. They were days away from being thrown out on the streets. Thank God for speaking through me that day. It may have felt like a normal day for me, but it was a big day for my client,'' he added.
