"We lost our teenage daughter in a drunk driving accident. You were a lifesaver to us in our time of desperation, as I know you were a lifesaver to others. I will never be able to repay you nor forget your kindness."

"After I was assaulted, you were a huge part of my life. I took my children and moved to Tennessee with nothing but the clothes on our backs. You did so much to help us rebuild our self-esteem and get our lives back on track."

"I was going through such a scary and overwhelming time. Thank you so much for your support and assistance in gaining a protective order. I really don’t know how I would have managed without your knowledge and aid."

"I recently had the unfortunate opportunity to need your services. Working with you has made me feel less like a “victim” and more like the empowered person that I am. You kept me updated and informed on my case, and I learned firsthand how effective and efficient your services are."

"Your professional expertise and knowledge of the legal system gave us the option of doing things the legal way, and sending our attacker the powerful message that good conquers evil."

"Whenever you enter the courtroom, I automatically calm down. I know that you are going to talk to the lawyers, things will run smoothly, and you will watch for mistakes. You make sure that my case is handled the best way that it can be."
