Dear Mr. Holden,

On behalf of Jim and myself, we would like to express our sincere gratitude to you and your team for taking on Robert’s case. We greatly appreciate the time you have given and the compassion you have shown to Robert. You have taken the time to become his advocate and his hope.

There is not a day that goes by that we don’t think about you and give thanks for the time and professionalism you devoted to Rob’s case.

You are always in our thoughts and prayers.

Len and Mike are knowledgeable, compassionate, and approachable. They were always patient and polite, quick to respond to my endless concerns and worries over both my husband’s health and the incumbent legal matters. They gave me as much time with them as I needed, whenever I needed it. Their results in our case, a rather complicated one, speak for themselves.
