Client / Law Professor:

“I’ve been a Law professor for most of my professional career as well as a practicing lawyer for over 40 years. Over the course of that time, I have taught a few thousand students and worked both with and against many lawyers on behalf of clients but very rarely been a client. When I taught professional responsibility, I told my students that I expected them to exhibit the highest levels of professionalism when they began to practice law and that their clients deserved nothing less. There are many hallmarks of professionalism, including courtesy, consideration, promptness, and good communication. As your client, I’ve found you to exhibit all of these hallmarks and more. The staff people at your firm with whom I’ve interacted have also been very professional, a clear sign that this professionalism is part of your firm’s culture. Thank you for your careful, thoughtful and very professional representation. I’ve enjoyed working with you and your firm. Very best regards.”
