Dear Gene and Caitlin,

I wanted to thank you for your efforts on this issue.

I found your timely response to all issues raised and your professionalism in both your assessment of the case and decisions on tactics going forward to be of the highest standard.

As you know this was our first time dealing with your firm, it has been a pleasure in all aspects from the first interactions to the final conversations to put the matter to rest.

Gene exemplified faultless advocacy from the outset of our first point of contact. His promptness and efficiency in answering my queries and providing directives for what was unfamiliar territory for me, served as a great comfort.

Gene acted on my behalf with sincerity, poise, and genuine care, producing the best possible outcome for me.

Gene alleviated a tremendous amount of worry through not only securing our primary objective, but also his consistency from start to finish, making for a comforting experience out of what was initially an extremely daunting prospect for me.

Gene exuded emotional intelligence in navigating the most effective path and direction throughout an uncertain time in my life.

Gene’s care of my matter throughout the entirety of my case was impressive and admirable and I could not recommend him highly enough.
