I just want to say thanks for representing on my recent DWI. It was something I never planned
to experience in my life and therefore was exceptionally surprised and scared when suddenly
faced with the dilemma. I appreciate your understanding, support, and accessibility for all of my
questions that arose throughout the ordeal. Further, I am extremely pleased with the timeliness
and ultimate outcome of the case. I truly feel that you were working for me and my wellbeing;
not just for my business. I will highly recommend you to anyone faced with a similar
predicament in the future.
