I’ll never be able to thank you enough for everything that you have done for us. Our little girl is growing up! She starts middle school this year. She received straight A’s last year and will be in the GT classes... She is also very much into gymnastics. She won a MD State Championship Award for her level... To think where she’d be today without your help is frightening. Thank you!

I lost faith a few times. it seemed like an impossible task dealing with the erratic behavior of the opposing counsel. I truly feel “what goes around, comes around,” and she will have to deal with that Karma.
Thank you for your very hard work. I wish you much luck in the future with your health, and work, and family!
