I just wanted to take the time to say thank you for all your work that you did for me. I don’t know where I would have been without your help. You a fantastic job and always gave me advice when I didn’t know what to do or advised to go about doing something another more productive way, You always had my best interest at heart and I knew that you would fight to protect that. I always felt that I was your only client from day one whenever I was with you and that you had it covered. You made going through a divorce as pleasant as can be. You kept me laughing when I felt like crying.
Divorce is a trying time for anyone and it helps to know that you are supported by the best. When I first started at your firm, you were not a partner yet. You don’t know how thrilled I was to hear when you made partner. If anyone deserved to be made partner it was you. You were and continue to be a very dedicated trustworthy, and moral lawyer. Without going into specifics of my case I remember a time when the judge started without my ex husbands lawyer present as he was still in another courtroom and when his lawyer did come you stopped your opening questions and made sure that his lawyer was up to speed with everything that was said. I want you to know that truly impressed me.
As our time as lawyer and client has come to an end I just wanted to say that I appreciate everything you have done for me. I would highly recommend you and your firm to anyone needing a lawyer. If I ever need a legal advice again I will be looking you up. Thank you again and I wish you nothing but continued success.
