I wish to thank you for your conduct of the recently concluded case against me. You were efficient in your work. I am especially appreciative of the incisiveness of your questions during depositions. You didn’t ask many questions, but they were the certainly right ones to ask. Your questions and the answers received strengthened our case.


Thank you! We can't tell you how relieved we are and appreciative we are of how well you represented and fought for us. We are truly grateful
