“It looks like our family may be reunited for Christmas! We appreciate your help!”

“I think you did a fantastic job. Your closing arguments honed in on the fantastical nature of allegations…so early teen-like…You were wonderful.”

“Thank you for all your efforts on behalf of our son. We are grateful for the outcome. We are singing your praises and referring our friends to your firm.”

“Thank you again for the legal services and, more importantly, the personal support you provided to [our daughter] as her advocate and representative earlier this year. As you know, we needed not only someone capable of providing sound legal advice, but also an attorney who could be a friend during a time that we found to be both confusing and threatening. You exceeded all expectations and I am extraordinarily grateful for all that you did.”

“You are so kind, caring, compassionate and CALM! I appreciate everything you did for us.”
