I just wanted to thank you for taking my very difficult case involving a sex crime in which many other attorneys would not due to the type of charge.  You treated me with respect and dignity from day one.  You looked at all the facts before taking on my case, considering what would be best for myself personally and financially.  As soon as you took on my case you worked very hard on calming my fears, defending me, along with informing me with what to expect. You also always answered all of my calls or returned them in a timely manner.I am so thankful that I found a lawyer with dignity and ethics like yourself.  Someone who actually cares and wants the best for everyone involved.
