     Even more, during this time of struggle to settle my case for me, you treated me with kindness and a real caring attitude. Your sincerity was always evident in your words and actions. Any good lawyer can handle a case and possibly win. It takes a very special person to handle a difficult case successfully, and at the same time make your client feel that you care about them as individuals.
