I just wanted to share with you how pleased I am about our representation by Kevin. His comprehension of a myriad of details, clarity of statement, obvious depth of knowledge of the law and always cordial manner were and continue to be a source of deep confidence. In particular, his closing argument after nearly fifteen hours of exhaustive argument was crisp, clear minded, to the point and inspiring. With Kevin's help, I don't believe we could have possibly done better for Bert.
