Quiero agradecer a D. Rafael Merchan el servicio realizado, ya que gracias a su ayuda y trabajo tan profesional e impecable, he podido conseguir la custodia compartida de mis hijos, no dejando lugar a dudas e imponiéndose ante las mentiras que en una sala son capaces de dirigirse hacia un buen padre, pudiendo con su informe anteponerse a cada una de las artimañas contrarias y dejando claro, sin discusión al respecto, que no se puede mercantilizar con los hijos. Por lo tanto, quiero agradecer a este gran profesional que no se me olvidara en mi vida lo que ha hecho por mis hijos y por mi. Muchas gracias Rafael, te estaré eternamente agradecido.
