We are always pleased to get a letter from a client; we’ve included one below:

Dear Roger:

I wanted to send you a note to let you know how much my family and I appreciate everything you have done for us.

I don’t think that any of us were fully aware of all the trials and tribulations that would arise as a result of my fall and subsequent injuries.  My case took some unexpected turns, some obstacles were thrown at us and a few surprises came along the way, but you handled every situation that arose with professionalism and with the knowledge that only comes from several years of experience.  You never once wavered or “backed down” from seeking justice for us.  You always kept our best interest in mind.

I will never be able to adequately express my gratitude for all you have done for us, the simplicity of you calling every few weeks just to see how I was feeling, how you always remembered to call after all of my many surgeries to see how I was doing – that had such an impact on me and meant so much to me and my wife.  It showed us that you were more than just our lawyer — I am honored to call you a friend.

Even now with the case over, you take the time to talk to us and answer our questions, to guide and advice us even with unrelated issues.

We went up against Goliath – against four defendants, to prove to a jury of my peers that a gross negligence, an injustice was done to me and my family and YOU proved it.

This letter is written with sincere appreciation for all your diligent and hard work, hundreds of hours you dedicated to my case, mountains upon mountains of paperwork, the many sleepless nights, the professionalism, genuine care and empathy you expressed to me and my family will never be forgotten and will always be appreciated.

I want to once again thank you and the staff at Friedman and Simon for all you have done for us.

Sincerely,

(ed. note: client name redacted at their own request)
