You have been a true pleasure to work with and again I thank you!

I can tell you that you were an absolute Godsend, and I don’t say that lightly. If it were not for you, and later Steve, I am not sure I would have been able to keep it together.

You were prompt with responses no matter if during the workday, after hours, or the weekend, and you always brought a ray of hope to keep moving forward. This is over the top and something I have never experienced, and I truly am very grateful for. This has been a very distasteful and ugly matter to deal with, but you have been a true pleasure to work with and again I thank you!!

Thank you for the expertise, knowledge, and advice!

I wanted to again thank you for the expertise, knowledge, and advice you offered throughout the process of filing/settling the suit related to my mother’s case. Your guidance was invaluable during all the steps, decisions, and options that needed to be discussed and decided. I wanted to express my appreciation for all you did for our family to support us through the process.

I will highly recommend you and your firm to others and will use your services again as needed in the future.

– Linda
