“I don’t know how to thank you enough for all your efforts. It was long, exhausting, frustrating, and painful. And we prevailed! …. I do not want to call you just 'attorney,' it does not express what I feel towards you. You were my guide, teacher, protector, cheerleader, sympathizer, critic, and of course, driver…. Thank you!”
~ Executive Director, Child Care Center
