I have skillfully negotiated numerous settlements and helped many, many clients resolve a wide range of legal problems over the years. Here is what some of them have said about working with me....
Letters From Clients:
Thank you for all of your kindness, generosity, and support through this difficult period in my life. And a special note of gratitude for your expertise in dealing with such a difficult case!
Fondly, Valerie [divorce & post-divorce custody & support issues]
I just wanted to thank you for all you've done for me over this past winter. You were more than just a lawyer; you seemed to have a side to you that is very compassionate and it is that side that was most evident. Thanks for everything, and I really enjoyed meeting you and consider you a good friend. Thanks for all your great advice.
Thanks, Brian [post divorce custody issue]
After my car accident in 1996 I had not considered seeking redress, but a friend suggested I contact you. From our first meeting I knew I had made the right decision in doing so. You were caring and sympathetic, yet very professional and knowledgeable, and this was true throughout the whole proceedings. I really appreciated the fact that you made everything understandable and uncomplicated for my husband and myself, taking your time to do things for us that we might have been required to do for ourselves. We admired your attitude with the other people we dealt with including the other attorneys. Even after reaching a successful conclusion, you have kept in touch to see how I am progressing.
Thank you, Edith, for being a good friend as well as a great attorney.
Sincerely, Evelyn [personal injury case]
Thank you for helping to bring the mediation process to fruition. You grasped the complexities of our siutation in a very short amount of time and then provided the matrix (literally & figuratively) for resolution, simplifying the issues for all. Thank you also for skillfully nudging me as needed.
With deep appreciation,
Maureen [represented client in divorce mediation]
I wanted to thank you for all your help, exptertise, and assistance in what was a very difficult and trying ordeal for me. From the first time we met, you immediately started providing legal advice and suggestions that ultimately made the situation easier to cope with throughout the duration of the divorce. I enjoyed working with you and the calm and professional manner that you maintained during the whole case despite the cheap antics and tricks that the other lawyer exhibited. She did not make things easy but you kept your composure and battled with her on a logical level, one she did not understand. Ultimately, things turned out as well as they could have been expected and now I can go on with my life. You made a very difficult situation calm and easier to deal with. You are defintely the first person who comes to mind when someone mentions the need for legal advice. I would not hesitate for a second to recommend you to friends, family, and acquaintances, and from the various referrals from both my family and myself you now this to be true. To sum it all up, I just wanted to reiterate my sincere thankfulness for the assistance and advice you provided.
Your friend snd client,
Thanks for help on this. Both [my new partner] and I believe that you are the only person we would trust to help us get through this situation. You have a certain style that reassures us, minimizes the drama, and gets the job done without undue injury or offense to either party involved. I hope you know how absolutely invaluable that is.
