What Former Clients Are Saying
Thank You! There aren’t enough words and no amount could ever express to you how truly grateful I am for you.
I have carried these chains with me for 7 years and you have broken them for me and given me the gift of FREEDOM!
I will forever be thankful for you.”
I wanted to personally thank you for representing my son Danny in his criminal misconduct case stemming from his behavior and actions earlier this summer. Your professionalism and experience proved invaluable and I want to personally recognize your successful resolution of this case in Danny’s favor.
He is attending classes at FSCJ and achieving an A grade in all his classes including stats, accounting, calculus, programming and anatomy/physiology. He has been accepted in the UNF School of Business and will start there in January. He recently received his personal training certification and will be employed soon as a personal trainer.
In closing I want you to know that you make a difference in the lives of others and in particular one young man who hopes to lead a productive, loving and fulfilling life. Your help will always be acknowledged and appreciated. Please keep him in your prayers.
I wanted to take this opportunity to let you know how deeply appreciative I am for what you accomplished on our son’s behalf. It has been over a month now since you gave us the news that all charges against him had been dismissed and I still today find it hard to believe.
The outcome of this case has nothing to do with luck. It was due entirely to your actions, efforts and skills. I certainly understand that some fortunate events led to the final outcome and dismissal but also understand that without your involvement and representation these events would have occurred. I was quite surprised by the number of hearings and appearances you have made on our son’s behalf and I recognize that this case was not a cake walk for you.
I thank you for your counsel, advice and efforts. I especially want to thank you for what you achieved on his behalf. I am confident that our son recognizes how fortunate he is that the DUI charge is not on his record. His actions indicate so and I am hopeful that this continues to be a life changing lesson.
Form one father to another…Thank You
