I just want to take a minute and thank you for all you did for Emily and our family. It was a year ago this April when Emily was in her car accident. As you know during that time I was totally focused on Emily and her injuries. It was hard for me to think straight about anything. A week or so goes by and I am faced with the realization that we needed an accident lawyer. When my friend and neighbor, Dotty Sims recommended you to me, I though, oh how perfect!! I loved how the puzzle was going together.
When I met you, I liked you right away. I knew you would do what you could for us. It felt so good to just put that problem in your hands, because I had another job to do and that was to look after Emily…
Months went by and you worked hard on all of Emily’s benefits. Emily was recovering from Traumatic Brain Injury. They had to shave her head to do a procedure to relieve pressure from her brain. At 17 years of age that was a hard part for her. She had very long blonde hair before the accident. But, month by month I could see the difference. She is walking and talking and very close to being that 17 year old I used to have a year ago. Emily was coming back. We worked hard on getting her back in school for a short time each day. And her hair started to grow back.
Last Tuesday we went to the judge’s chambers to settle this insurance case. It is unbelievable that with such a huge hospital bill that you were able to get them to settle for a very small amount. With all the insurance you found that we had, there was still some money left over for Emily’s benefit. You did an unbelievable job. Emily was so interested in how lawyers do what they do. You just were such a wonderful mentor and gave your time to explain everything to her… I mean everything, even twice. (She has short term memory loss). You made a huge impression on her. Who knows, because of you, she might become a lawyer one day.
I want to thank you for making this experience a positive experience. Thanks for just handling everything. I could not be happier with our outcome with the settlement. I feel like I have gotten a great new friend from this. You were so personable to us. And again, I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Proud to be Emily’s mom,
