'Engaging in 'debates' on the forums has improved my confidence and my ability to research material. I take on cases of increasing difficulty and the outcomes are often very positive. I have saved people from eviction, and clients' improved financial situation has led to improvements in their health ... I would not be nearly so good at what I do if it had not been for rightsnet.'
